Richard Petty Motorsports driver Almirola is excited for Las Vegas
Aric Almirola hopes to best his 16th-place finish last year at Las Vegas (Nev.) Motor Speedway, his career-best at the mile-and-a-half track, this weekend in the No. 43 Farmland Ford. With nine NASCAR National Series starts under his belt, Almirola proved successful at the Las Vegas track, posting three top-10 finishes in the Truck Series and a top-15 finish in the Nationwide Series.
Almirola and team will hit the track Thursday for a test session, but before they get to work on track, Almirola will join Farmland in a food donation event at Smith's Food & Drug, located at 2255 E Centennial Pkwy, North Las Vegas, Nev. As part of their Helping Hungry Homes tour, Farmland will present the 40,000-pound donation to Three Square Food Bank Thursday, March 7 at 10 a.m.
"I'm also excited to we have another food donation this week. Before we get on track, we'll join Farmland in giving back to the local community. This is one of my favorite parts of my job and a big reason I enjoy working with Smithfield Foods and their brands. It's an honor for me to be a small part in giving back throughout the season and building awareness for the hungry."
