The series rookie led the final three laps on his way to a popular $4,000 payday on the Comp Cams Super Dirt Series.
Quotable: “I seen Timmy break down the back straightaway and I said, ‘I’m running second. What do you do now, you’re leading this thing?’ This is amazing," Armstrong said. "It’s a dream come true.”
