2013 Kentucky: Dakoda Armstrong NASCAR Truck Race Preview

New NASCAR Fans at WinField… Spending time away from NASCAR Camping World Truck Series competition for just over two weeks didn’t allow time to slow down for Dakoda Armstrong. At the top of the ‘To-Do’ list was a visit to the WinField National Sales Meeting in Minnesota. Held by Armstrong’s primary sponsor, WinField, the meeting brought together key individuals in the company for four days to learn new ways to help customers and farmers around the country. Though the 21-year-old driver didn’t participate in the sales meetings for the agricultural company, he was able to contribute in his own way to introduce the company to NASCAR. Armstrong gave demonstrations each day with his No. 60 WinField Silverado on display, explaining the details of this year’s new racing program and partnership.

“This is WinField’s first full year in NASCAR, so there are still a lot of the employees who don’t know a lot about the sport,” Armstrong explained. “It was cool to be able to bring the truck to the meeting and show everyone what we do each week in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series, and hopefully create new fans with each person we talk to.”

Oklahoma Tornado Relief... Based in team owner Stacy Compton's hometown of Lynchburg, Virginia, the Heart of Virginia Tornado Lifeline is a partnership between the local ABC affiliate and Gleaning For the World that has been gathering donations and shipping supplies to Oklahoma to help those who have suffered from the tornado tragedies. Turn One Racing and the No. 60 team have helped spread the word over the past several weeks as the non-profit continues its efforts. For more information on the Heart of Virginia Tornado Lifeline and donations, visit GFTW.org or call 434.993.3600.

This Weekend’s WinField Silverado… Crew Chief Gere Kennon and the No. 60 WinField Chevrolet team have prepared one of their most utilized Silverados, Chassis 21B, for the UNOH 225 at Kentucky. Purchased from Richard Childress Racing at the start of the season, the team has nominated this chassis as their best for intermediate track competition; already yielding three top-15 finishes this season with Armstrong at the wheel.

Previous Race Recap: Texas Motor Speedway… Racing just over two weeks ago under the lights at Texas Motor Speedway for the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series (NCWTS) WinStar World Casino 400 spawned opportunity for Dakoda Armstrong and his No. 60 WinField racing team. Working on a race trim package during practice on Thursday proved to be beneficial, hitting on a setup that was favorable to Armstrong from his first report after the green flag dropped. Starting from the 17th position, he was able to pick off positions as the sun went down and his Silverado picked up speed, bringing home an 11th place finish.

Broadcast Information… The UNOH 225 broadcast will begin live on SPEED beginning with the NCWTS Setup at 7:30 pm ET, with radio coverage provided by MRN and SiriusXM NASCAR Radio at 8:00 pm ET.

Dakoda Armstrong on Kentucky Speedway… “We’re going to have a big crowd of customers and guests from WinField at Kentucky and that makes it more exciting for me because you definitely want to put on a good show for the sponsors. But even if we didn’t have a big support group coming, Kentucky really is one of my favorite tracks because it’s pretty challenging and the track has aged and changed a lot in the past few years. It’s still a 1.5-mile track, but you definitely can’t drive it like some of the other intermediate tracks. We’re really going to have a build a lot of adjustablility into our WinField Silverado because when it’s hot there, it’s even harder to get a hold on the track. I’ve had pretty good runs there in the past so I’m ready to go back.”
