Aric Almirola wins Xfinity Series race at Talladega

Aric Almirola wins Xfinity Series race at Talladega

Kenseth is regarded as one of the better plate-racers around, but he hasn't performed well in these types of races recently.

The win was Almirola's first of the season in four starts and his first at Talladega. That's good news for the NASCAR XFINITY Series drivers set to hit the track for the Sparks Energy 300 and see if they can overcome what happened the last time the series had a restrictor plate race.

43 Ford driven by Aric Almirola to a fourth-place finish in Sunday's GEICO 500 at Talladega Superspeedway failed post-race inspection, according to NASCAR officials. He's followed by Martin Truex Jr., Chase Elliott, Joey Logano and Brad Keselowksi. "You don't have that tandem push as much, and it's more of a pack like the Cup races are, so you get a little bit more experience for what tomorrow is gonna be like, which is good". Jones should be able to give Logano some trouble this afternoon.

With the Ford of Darrell Wallace Jr. plowing into the inside backstretch wall behind him on the final lap, Almirola held the top spot to the finish, beating Sadler, the series leader, to the finish line by.142 seconds.

Wladimir Klitschko Vows That He Will Be Back From Defeat
He's back in training and he's getting into shape and that's good for boxing, so I hope that he comes back to his very best. That's what I said to Klitschko: for me this was not a defining fight. "He showed he can recover from taking big shots".

The auto was indeed fast, and Almirola used a fuel-only stop to earn his first series victory since Daytona past year.

"I think the biggest thing (running the Xfinity race) is just working with your spotter and working on that lingo and working on where the runs come from and learning how to block those and being aggressive together", Logano said. "I feel like he can get out there and control the whole race. The more seat time I get, the better I feel about my chances for tomorrow".

Motor Racing Network - "The Voice of NASCAR" will have live coverage of Sunday's GEICO 500, beginning at 1 p.m. (ET) - with live streaming at and on the MRN App. One of which was a 60-lap qualifying race for the Daytona 500.

Erik Jones hasn't had a lot of success in this race, but he is riding a hot streak that makes him appealing. "Me and my spotter were so focused on (Logano)". "Especially coming here where I don't have a lot of experience on superspeedways in general".
