DAKODA ARMSTRONG QUOTE:
What are your thoughts on Competing for Richard Childress Racing in the NASCAR Nationwide Series at Charlotte Motor Speedway?
“I’m looking forward to getting another shot to compete for Richard Childress Racing in the Nationwide Series at Charlotte (Motor Speedway). I think running the Camping World Truck Series race a week before at Charlotte is an added benefit and will allow me to get familiar with the track since I have only raced there once. Driving the No. 21 WinField Chevrolet this weekend is a great opportunity for me, and I’m excited to work with the group at RCR again this weekend.”
