Armstrong at Richmond International Raceway:

Dakoda will be making his seventh career NASCAR XFINITY Series start at Richmond International Raceway. Armstrong has a best XFINITY Series finish of seventh at the Virginia short track which occurred during the Fall race in 2014.

In the two races last year at RIR, Dakoda steered his No. 28 Toyota to 14th and 16th place finishes.

Dakoda’s Thoughts on Richmond International Raceway:

“Richmond has become one of my favorite tracks and one that I have been running well at the last few races.  We have had really good cars at Richmond lately and I am sure we will have another strong No. 28 Toyota this week.”

“We have fought hard the last few weeks and have been able to salvage some decent finishes.  We are about to enter a stretch of good race tracks for us and a strong run this weekend at Richmond will definitely build us some good momentum.”

Bristol Rewind:

The track known as “The World’s Fastest Half Mile” has not been too kind to Dakoda Armstrong over the years and a mechanical issue on his No. 28 WinField United Toyota in qualifying would make things even tougher on Saturday.  However, the New Castle, Indiana native and his JGL Racing team would stay focused and endure the elements of multiple red flag conditions and a rain-delay to secure a 19th place finish in the running of the Fitzgerald Glider Kits 300 at Bristol Motor Speedway.
