Aric Almirola, a Stewart-Haas Racing driver, is not so good this season as he has only 4 top 10 finishes in the season. He achieved the best result at Daytona. The next race is at Dover Motor Speedway. Almirola stressed that it was his favorite race, and most were left with surprises after that statement.
It is the race before which he has the most confidence.
“I get asked what my favorite track is all the time during media days and meet-and-greets. My answer is always Dover and it shocks people. They would think Talladega or Daytona because I have had success there, but Dover is just a place I always love to race at.
I got my first Truck Series to win there and I always feel confident when we race there. It’s going to be bittersweet, but what will make it even sweeter is getting to victory lane again,” Aric Almirola said.
Almirola on the track
Almirola seems to love this track also because of the speed.
But most importantly, he is a great optimist before this race and expectations are high. We will see if Almirola has the capacity to regain success on this track, as there are many good teams and drivers who will want to take the opportunity.
Let's wait, anything is possible. “I love going to Dover because it’s one of those places you go 170 mph but you feel like you’re going 300 mph. The sensation of speed you get is unbelievable. We had a shot to win that race in 2018 and we led a lot of laps.
Every time I go back there, I think about how we have the capabilities to run up front and win, which is the mindset we want every weekend,” Aric Almirola added. This race could bring us the same thing as Talladega, which is why we are impatient. Almirola could surprise many.
