Even though Dakoda Armstrong scored a 25th-place finish in the first road course event of the season at Road America, he's optimistic for a solid finish this weekend at Watkins Glen International.

Also, Armstrong has logged more laps at Watkins Glen than any other road course on the Nationwide circuit. He made some laps on the course during a trip to New York just a few weeks ago and logged many hours on the 2.45-mile track on the simulator.-Breaking Limits
