Almirola to the #10
Aric Almirola has been signed to replace Danica Patrick at Stewart-Haas Racing. In 2018, he will pilot the #10 machine.
Moments ago, the announcement was made at Stewart-Haas Racing.
“This is the opportunity every racer wants,” Almirola said in a team release. “Stewart-Haas Racing is an experienced organization with a lot of depth, great technical support from Ford and staffed with racers from top to bottom. They lean on each other, challenge each other and make each other better. I’m really looking forward to being a part of that.
“I’ve known Tony Stewart since our time together at Joe Gibbs Racing. I know what he expects and he knows my commitment. I can’t think him and Smithfield enough for believing in me and providing this opportunity.”
