Aric Almirola had won an Xfinity Series race before Friday night. Kind of. He started a 2007 race at Milwaukee but relinquished the wheel to the late-arriving Denny Hamlin, who went on to win the race credited to Almirola as the initial driver. Almirola never felt like he had an actual Xfinity win, and he feels like he has now earned a win in the series with the Daytona victory Friday.
