Christie: Almirola Dark Horse for Championship

Toby Christie predicted that Aric Almirola is a dark horse to win this year’s cahmpionship.

Christie said, “Despite coming into the 2020 NASCAR Cup Series Playoffs win-less, Aric Almirola described in Thursday’s NASCAR playoffs media day that he is very confident heading into what he feels like is his best shot at a championship in his career. “Absolutely,”Almiorla said. “In 2018 I had a lot of confidence and it was kind of nice because there was very low expectations for us. We were a new team. It was my first year at Stewart-Haas Racing and nobody really paid any attention to us at all, and so having that confidence and low expectations we performed really well and through the summer leading up to those playoffs that year I saw the potential that we had.”
