Starting from the 27th position and continuously working to find the right balance in race trim all afternoon, Dakoda Armstrong recovered from missing pit road under the green flag claim a 21st place finish at Dover International Speedway. Crew chief Gere Kennon made a last minute call to come to pit road under yellow with five laps to go, getting the fresh tires Armstrong needed to gain a few valuable positions before the checkered. The finish drops Armstrong unofficially from eighth to 10th in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series driver point standings.
"We struggled on new tires all day, but the Turn One Racing team and my crew chief Gere Kennon never gave up and kept making the right changes every pit stop," Armstrong explained. "Our WinField Silverado wasn't too bad in the closing laps and kept getting better, but it was just too late in the game. We learned a lot today though so we can take that with us and build on it for the rest of the season."
