As the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series season-opener at Daytona draws near and the off season comes to a end, ThorSport Racing rookie Dakoda Armstrong's schedule is filling up. On that schedule includes an event this Friday, as Armstrong will join several other NASCAR drivers at the sixth-annual Charlotte Checkers Race Night. The evening's events will include an autograph session for race fans prior to the drop of the puck, along with racing-themed activities for the whole family. Race Night will be a great opportunity for attendees to get close to some of their favorite drivers and enjoy Checkers hockey all in one setting.
"I've been to a few hockey games before, but this will be my first time watching the Checkers," Armstrong said. "Hockey and racing are both about action and everything moves fast, so I'm sure all the hockey and race fans that come will have a great time."
Checkers players will be donning special jerseys for Race Night that will be auctioned off live following the game, with proceeds going to the Ronald McDonald House of Charlotte and Hyundai Hope on Wheels.
Armstrong is slated to run his first full-season in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series this year for ThorSport, behind the wheel of the No. 98 Toyota Tundra. Competing for Rookie of the Year honors, his first contest will be the NextEra Energy Resources 250 at Daytona International Speedway on Friday, February 24th.
