JCL Racing announced Monday it has suspended activities for its No. 28 Toyota and its driver, Dakoda Armstrong, and it’s effective immediately.
The team made the announcement via a press release on its website.
The team made reference to sponsor payments in its release.
“We really hate that it has come to this,” said James Whitener, owner of JGL Racing. “However, this business is driven by sponsorship and when payments aren’t made then we cannot continue to race out off our own pocket. I hate this for our race team as well as Dakoda. We all appreciate the effort he has put into the growth of JGL Racing and wish him nothing but the best of success moving forward.”
The No. 28 will not race at Dover this coming weekend, but the team’s No. 24 will continue through the end of the season.
Armstrong, 26, has raced in the XFinity series for six years, and while he doesn’t have a win, he has eight top 10 finishes in 133 races.
Armstrong thanked JGL for the opportunity.
