    The record book shows Aric Almirola had one career Xfinity Series victory before Friday night's win at Daytona International Speedway. Almirola was declared winner of Friday night's race when NASCAR determined he was the leader when the caution flag froze the field shortly before the finish line. It was technically the second win of his career, but he doesn't accept that win because he was replaced midway through that race by Denny Hamlin and it was Hamlin who drove the car to victory lane.
