Auto Club Speedway is the site of Dakoda Armstrong's second-career NASCAR XFINITY Series start, but that's not the only reason he's fond of the track.

He likes Auto Club because of the multiple-groove racing it provides. Tire wear will come into play as well at the Two-mile track, but the No. 43 WinField team will look to reduce the correlating speed drop-off throughout the weekend. Armstrong has two starts at the track where he earned his best finish of 15th in 2013 in just his second XFINITY Series start. Crew Chief Frankie Kerr and the WinField crew have prepared chassis number 804 for this weekend, which made five appearances in 2014.-Breaking Limits
