Almirola to drive for JR Motorsports

Aric Almirola has signed a multi-year contract to drive the No. 88 car for JR Motorsports on the Nationwide circuit, starting next year.

Almirola has 32 career Nationwide Series starts, including a third-place finish for JR Motorsports last month at O’Reilly Raceway Park.

“The chance to drive full time in the Nationwide Series with a top caliber team is something I am extremely excited about,” said Almirola in a release from JR Motorsports. “We raced at ORP together a month ago and had a really good run. There is no reason why we cannot compete like that every race, and there is no reason why we shouldn’t be running for a championship. I would expect nothing less.”

Almirola is currently second in the Truck Series standings. In 15 races this year, he has a pair of victories and has finished in the top 10 in all but four events.
