Daytona – Can-AM Duel Race Report

“It was a good run for us,” said Almirola. “I think that our Smithfield Ford Fusion had good speed in it. We mixed it up there a bit. I thought we had better car; I just couldn’t make the moves when I wanted to. We’ll find some more speed in our car. All in all, it was a decent race for us, and I think we have good momentum heading into the Daytona 500.
