Growing up in the Midwest, it’s only natural for Dakoda Armstrong to follow in his strong family heritage as a fourth-generation farmer. He grew up helping his father run the family-owned farm, planting corn and soybeans. He also realized his love of racing at an early age too and climbed into a go-kart at age six. Armstrong won the 1998 World Karting Association Championship in just his first year racing.
In 2004, Armstrong became the youngest driver to ever win a USAC National Championship title at just 13-years-old. Through his early days and his teenage years, he accumulated over 200 wins while competing in go-karts, quarter midgets, bandolero, micro/mini springs, Kenyon midgets, 410 non-wing sprint cars and midgets.
His success in open-wheel racing gained him recognition in one of the biggest names in motorsports, Penske Racing, and Armstrong became a development driver for the organization in 2009. That year, Penske partnered with Cunningham Motorsports to field a car in the ARCA Racing Series for Armstrong for seven races. His first year in a stock car he earned a best finish of third and a total of three top-10 finishes.
