Richard Childress Racing has signed 21-year-old Dakoda Armstrong to drive in five races during the 2013 NASCAR Nationwide Series season. Armstrong is scheduled to pilot RCR's No. 33 Chevrolet Camaro at Auto Club Speedway (March 23). He will then drive the No. 21 Camaro at Charlotte Motor Speedway (May 25), Chicagoland Speedway (July 21), Kentucky Speedway (September 21) and a fifth race to be named later. The New Castle, Ind., native has one previous start in the Nationwide Series, qualifying 19th and finishing 25th in the 2012 season finale at Homestead-Miami Speedway.   "I'm really looking forward to driving for a proven winner such as Richard Childress Racing," said Armstrong. "We feel NASCAR's American Ethanol partnership through RCR and my family's extensive farming background makes a great fit. We are excited to show how a fourth generation farmer can activate a great marketing strategy to the agricultural industry to help grow their business."   Armstrong won three races and earned one pole in 33 starts in the ARCA Racing Series presented by Menards from 2009 to 2011. He raced the full ARCA Series schedule in 2010, finished seventh in the point standings and earned rookie of the year honors. In 2004, at just 13 and in his rookie season, he was crowned the youngest USAC Kenyon Midget Series champion.   "Dakoda is a great talent with a lot of potential and will be a solid addition to our line-up of young drivers," said Richard Childress, president and CEO of Richard Childress Racing. "Our expectations for him are high, just as they are for all of our drivers. The tracks we've chosen for Dakoda to compete will give him the opportunity to show his talent behind the wheel and his potential to take his career to the next level."   RCR PR
