Richard Petty Motorsports announced the signing of 22-year-old Dakoda Armstrong, who will assume driving duties of the #43 Ford Mustang in the NASCAR Nationwide Series.
The multi-year contract marks an ongoing commitment towards winning as the RPM team looks to build upon recent success. WinFieldTM, Armstrong’s primary sponsor during his tenure with Turn One Racing and Richard Childress Racing, will continue its sponsorship for the majority of the 2014 season. Addtionally, Fresh From Florida will sponsor the remaining three races. Furthering continuity for the #43 race team, Crew Chief Philippe Lopez will again oversee Armstrong from the pit box.
Armstrong’s ascension to the NNS on a full-time basis comes on the heels of a 2013 campaign that included a 12th-place points finish after his first full season competing in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series. Armstrong also logged six NNS races, notching three top-15 finishes.(Richard Petty Motorsports)
As was reported earlier, 2013 RPM driver, Michael Annett, left the organization to drive the TBR #7 Chevy for Tommy Baldwin Racing in the Sprint Cup Series in 2014.
