In addition, he did not forget to thank all those who supported him from the first day. “After much prayer and conversations with my family, I’m ready for the next adventure. To everyone at Stewart-Haas Racing: A genuine and heartfelt THANK YOU for the last six years.

Winning races and competing with all of you have been a thrill. Our opportunity together was made possible by all of our wonderful partners to which I owe much gratitude because as a race-car driver, I can’t compete without corporate sponsorship.

It’s been an honor to represent the many companies and all of their employees." Almirola was not forgotten by Smithfield either. They were by his side and supported him from day one. The partnership he built was truly an example for all.

“To Smithfield: I am humbled for the opportunity to represent your company and brands. Twelve years ago you brought me into the Smithfield family and took a chance on me. I am forever indebted to the people that I’ve had the pleasure to meet and represent.

My career and life wouldn’t be what it is today without your support."
