Armstrong at Richmond International Raceway: Dakoda will be making his fifth 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.
Dakoda’s Thoughts on Richmond International Raceway: “Richmond is a fun track to race on. This weekend in Richmond will be different in many respects. We will have the Dash 4 Cash Heat Races for the second week in a row and as we found out at Bristol last week that throws in a new wrinkle. And then we will be racing during the day instead of the night so that changes a lot of elements of the handling of your car.”
“It will be key for us to get a handling on our No. 28 Winfield Toyota very quickly in practice on Friday. The guys on this JGL Racing team have been working very hard and I know together we will accomplish what we need to this weekend in Richmond.”
New Dash 4 Cash Format For Second Week In A Row:
The NASCAR XFINITY Series will take racing back to its roots for the second week in a row with Heat races, as Richmond is the second of four Dash 4 Cash events. All Dash 4 Cash events are comprised of two Heats and a Main.
For these unique Dash 4 Cash events, traditional, single-car qualifying will determine the 40 eligible vehicles and starting positions for the two Heats, with the fastest qualifier receiving the Coors Light Pole Award. Odd-numbered qualifiers (1st, 3rd, 5th, etc.) will start in the first Heat in respective order, while even-numbered qualifiers (2nd, 4th, 6th, etc.) will start the second Heat in respective order.
The two Heats will set the starting positions for the Main, with the top two NASCAR XFINITY Series championship points-earning drivers in each Heat becoming eligible for the Dash 4 Cash bonus. Of the four eligible Dash 4 Cash drivers, the highest-finishing driver in the Main will be awarded a $100,000 bonus.
