Aric Almirola returning to Stewart-Haas with Smithfield Foods

Smithfield Foods will renew its primary sponsorship with Stewart-Haas Racing for ’21, and driver Aric Almirola will continue manning the No. 10 car, Smithfield Chief Commercial Officer of Packaged Meats John Pauley has revealed to THE DAILY.

The company signed a one-year extension with SHR last year, and Pauley confirmed today in an email that Smithfield will be back for next season with another extension. Pauley said that Smithfield will have 25 primaries, controlling around 70% of the season. While the terms of Smithfield’s deal are not known, a deal of that size at a top team like SHR would typically run close to, or into, the low eight figures.
