NXS: Armstrong Ready for First Short Track of the Season

Armstrong Happy with Gains Made with WinField Team in 2015


Dakoda Armstrong and the No. 43 WinField team will head to the first one-mile oval of the season at Phoenix International Raceway this weekend. Armstrong feels the team is making big gains to improve each week. He’s looking forward to the first short track of the season where aero won’t come into play as much as the intermediate tracks and hopes to score a Top-10 finish.


Armstrong has two XFINITY Series starts at Phoenix, earning his best finish of 18th in the Spring of last year. Armstrong also has one Truck Series start in 2013 where he finished 19th.


Crew Chief Frankie Kerr and the WinField team have prepared chassis number 743 for Phoenix. This short track chassis ran six times last year and finished in the Top-10 at the September Richmond event.

“Phoenix is a lot of fun. It’s challenging in the fact that it’s a short track, but aero still comes into play a little bit. With the track being so flat it has to handle right. It’s one of those tracks where you can figure out one end of the track but struggle with the other. We just need to iron that out and get a good balance for the car. Now the track has some wear on it where you can actually go up in that second groove so it makes for better racing.”
