Armstrong at Michigan International Speedway:
Dakoda will be making his fourth career NASCAR XFINITY Series start at Michigan International Speedway to go along with three prior starts in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series and one in the ARCA Racing Series.

Armstrong has a best XFINITY Series finish of 16th at the Brooklyn, Michigan track which occurred during the 2015 season.

Dakoda's Thoughts on Michigan International Speedway:
"Michigan is a really fast race track with a lot of grip.  It's pretty easy to run wide open but at the same time you have to be good in traffic to race well."

"We struggled at Michigan last year but this JGL Racing team and I have come a long way since then.  We have strong horsepower supplied to us by Joe Gibbs Engines and at a big wide open track like Michigan that is important.  I look forward to dialing in our No. 28 WinField United Toyota in practice on Friday and putting together a strong race on Saturday."

Michigan Autograph Appearance:
Dakoda will be joining other NASCAR XFINITY Series drivers in an Autograph Session on Friday at Michigan International Speedway.  The event will be held from 11:00 - 11:45 am at the Hospitality Village at the track.    
Pocono Rewind:
Pocono Raceway is properly referred to as "The Tricky Triangle" and its distinctively three different corners can present multiple challenges to driver and car.  As the NASCAR XFINITY Series made its second visit to the track, Dakoda Armstrong would deal with a tight handling condition on his No. 28 WinField United Toyota as he claimed a 20th place finish in the running of the Pocono Green 250 at the Lond Pond, PA track.
