Richard Petty Motorsports announced recently that Dakoda Armstrong will drive the No. 43 Ford in NASCAR Nationwide Series competition for RPM in 2014, replacing Michael Annett. Annett is moving on to compete at the Sprint Cup level.

"We want to win races for 'The King' (car owner Richard Petty)," Armstrong said. "I'm ready to take the next step in my career, and RPM is an organization where I believe I can make that happen. Our team and sponsors are as committed to winning as I am, and I'm looking forward to a successful season and future together."

Armstrong competed full-time in the Camping World Truck Series in 2013, driving for Turn One Racing. Prior to 2013, he ran a partial schedule for ThorSport Racing. He has a total of two top-fives and five top-10 finishes in 44 races of Truck Series competition.

Armstrong also has a limited amount of Nationwide Series competition, making six starts in 2013 and one in 2012. His other racing experience includes USAC and ARCA. He's a three-time winner in the ARCA Racing Series.

"Dakoda is a driver who has grown up in the sport and has paid his dues," car owner Richard Petty said. "He has proven himself at every level, and we will now give him the tools he needs to be successful in the Nationwide Series and believe he can win races for us."
