TALLADEGA, Ala. – Aric Almirola confirmed Friday that he has signed an extension with Stewart-Haas Racing.

Almirola declined to reveal the length of the extension or any other details.

Stewart-Haas Racing announced earlier this week an extension with Almirola’s sponsor, Smithfield. No terms were announced.

Almirola was eliminated from title contention last weekend at Dover International Speedway. He has no wins, one top-five finish and 10 top-10 results this season. He is the defending winner of this weekend’s Cup race at Talladega Superspeedway (2 p.m. ET on NBC).

This is Almirola’s second year with Stewart-Haas Racing.
