He finished 13th in the Xfinity Series point standings in 2014 and 12th this year under the direction of crew chief Frank Kerr. He also posted a career-best finish of sixth at Daytona in July.

Armstrong made his ARCA debut at 16 and won three races in 33 starts. He’s also competed in the K&N Pro Series East tour and has 44 Camping World Truck starts over three seasons.

Sources told Armstrong is still searching for a ride. Richard Childress Racing reportedly is one of the teams with whom Armstrong has had discussions with about options for 2016.
