Armstrong Released By ThorSport Racing

Dakoda Armstrong
ThorSport Racing has parted company with Dakoda Armstrong for the remainder of the 2012 NASCAR Camping World Truck Series season, due to lack of sponsorship.

"We have been very lucky this season with the partners that the Armstrongs have brought to the #98 truck," said team spokesman Matt LaNeve. "However, sponsorship funding was unable to be secured for the remaining eight races, resulting in ThorSport Racing having to part ways with Dakoda."
Armstrong said he appreciates everything ThorSport, Toyota and crew chief Dan Stillman have done for him this season, and thanked them for their support.
The decision has no impact on ThorSport Racing’s #88 Menards Toyota driven by Matt Crafton, or the #13 Hot Honeys/Curb Records Toyota driven by Johnny Sauter. Both drivers will continue to compete for the remainder of the NCWTS season.

    2013 sure looks to be a downer year already. It's all about the money and sponsorship. Tony Stewart's two teams need funding, James Finch is inches away from closing shop, Brett Moffitt is a points leader, now this. The sad part is the competition suffers. We have "rich kids" with little or no experience / talent who buy rides. ie: John Wes Townley, Brian Scott. Something has to give or we will be looking at less teams, more empty seats, and more griping on Dave's radio show.
