His best finish in seven NASCAR Xfinity Series starts at the track was a sixth-place result driving for JR Motorsports in November 2010. In 2011, he won the pole and led 66 laps before being collected in a late-race accident. Almirola also posted a pair of top-five finishes in NASCAR Cup Series competition at the one-mile tri-oval. His Phoenix resume also includes two more top-five runs in NASCAR CRAFTSMAN Truck Series competition.

He clawed his way back into contention and made his way into the top 10 at one point before ultimately finishing 12th.

Aric Almirola, Driver of the No. 19 Go Bowling Toyota GR Supra 

What are your expectations going to Phoenix this weekend?

“I feel like Phoenix should go better than Las Vegas did just because it was my first time back in these cars on a regular oval in a long time. It was good to get a race under my belt working with Seth (Chavka, crew chief) and the guys. Phoenix is a track I personally feel good about, so I expect to run well, especially given how the JGR cars typically perform there.”
