A sponsorship problem has cost Dakoda Armstrong his NASCAR Xfinity Series ride with JGL racing, according to an announcement from the race team Monday. According to the report, JGL has “suspended driving duties, effective immediately, with Dakoda Armstrong.”

Armstrong has been the driver of JGL’s No. 28 Toyota this year, with sponsorship backing. But the Monday report from JGL Racing claims a lack of “sponsorship payments” as the reason doe Armstrong’s release.

“We really hate that it has come to this,” JGL Racing owner James Whitener said.  “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.”

JGL will not field the No. 28 in Saturday’s race at Dover (Del.) International Speedway, but the organization’s No. 24 will continue with Corey LaJoie and Dylan Lupton, both with sponsors, sharing driving duties.

“We will focus on finishing out the season with our programs on our No. 24 Toyota,” Whitener said.  “We will explore future options for the No. 28 entry, as well as focusing on finalizing programs for both cars for the 2018 season.”
