The Smithfield-Almirola partnership in the Cup Series will continue after nearly a decade together. The Virginia-based food company has sponsored Almirola since 2012 in the Cup Series, as well as in several Xfinity Series races.

Almirola won the fall race at Talladega Superspeedway in 2018 with Smithfield on board, his second and most recent win in NASCAR’s premier division.
Almirola currently sits 12th in the 2020 NASCAR playoffs after a solid regular season of five top fives and 14 top-10 finishes. He enters the postseason with 2,005 points, with the first race set for this weekend at Darlington at 6 p.m. ET.
