Aric Almirola visits Michigan ahead of Firekeepers Casino 400

ROMULUS, Mich. (WTVG) - Aric Almirola's week has yet to hit the brakes.

Sunday, he finished fourth in the Cup race at Talladega after a win in the Xfinity Series race Saturday.

However, Almirola's Cup car failed inspection by a fraction of an inch on NASCAR's post race laser test. NASCAR penalized Almiorla's team by suspending crew chief Drew Blickensderfer for three races and docked Almirola points in the series.

Thursday, Almirola made a swing through Michigan with a stop in Battle Creek and later here to promote the upcoming Firekeepers Casino 400 at Michigan International Speedway.

The next stop for Almirola this week is Kansas Speedway in Kansas City, Kan.
