Coming off the team's first top-10 of the season, Aric Almirola looks forward to making his first stop at Kansas Speedway this season for the STP 400. He and the No. 43 STP Ford team led 69 laps at the 1.5-mile track last fall, a career-best for Almirola. Sporting classic Petty Blue and STP colors, Almirola and team will look for redemption in the 400-mile race.
Almirola has two Sprint Cup starts at Kansas Speedway, both in 2012. Last fall, he started fifth and raced into the lead in his sixth race with crew chief Todd Parrott.
