The Coke Zero 400 was expected to run on July 5, but was delayed until July 6 due to rain. The race picked up on July 6 and Aric Almirola came away with his first ever Sprint Cup Series win!

On July 6, the race was delayed twice for rain, but Aric managed to pull off a huge (and first) victory! After a huge crash involving Tony Stewart, Ricky Stenhouse, Jr. and Jeff Gordon took out big drivers like Dale Earnhardt, Jr., Danica Patrick, Kevin Harvick and Jimmie Johnson out of the race.

After another accident from Kyle Busch put the race under caution, Aric took the lead upon the restart on lap 104. After yet another rain delay, a red flag and a wait, Aric was declared the winner!

This is the first win ever for Aric. He’s from Tampa, Florida, so this is a win for his home state! He was driving the No. 43 Ford Fusion for Richard Petty Motorsports.

HollywoodLifers, what do you think about Aric winning the Coke Zero 400? Were you rooting for someone else? Let us know!
