Almirola Receives Classic Gift

Share:

 

After securing his second victory for the Biagi DenBeste Racing team at Talladega Superspeedway, co-owners Bill and Lori DenBeste asked driver Aric Almirola what his favorite color was. After answering that it was is red, Almirola didn't think anything of it. Little did he know that he would receive a classic Shelby to celebrate his wins. The DenBestes gifted Almirola a 1965 Shelby 427 Cobra CSX 6086, black with a red stripe.

The DenBestes are owners of the world's largest Cobra dealership, DenBeste Motorsports. With the world's largest inventory of Shelby Cobras, picking out Almirola's car was as easy as going to their shop based in Windsor, Calif. DenBeste Motorsports was derived in 2008 from Bill's love of collecting cars and his close friendship with Carroll Shelby. DenBeste Motorsports' focus is to provide an opportunity to own a piece of automotive history and be the owner of one of the world's most collectible cars.

"Aric has done a great job for us in our No. 98 car, and we are happy to reward that effort in a tangible way with the 1965 Cobra," says Lori DenBeste, President of Biagi-DenBeste Racing.

Almirola has driven 26 NASCAR XFINITY Series races for the Biagi DenBeste Racing team and tallied two wins, Daytona in 2016 and Talladega in 2017.

"The significance of the Shelby in the car world is huge and to have one from the first year they started making them is really special," said Almirola. "What makes it even more special is that it signifies the wins we have together. I've really enjoyed my time racing with the Biagi DenBeste Racing team and look forward to reminiscing on those wins with the wind in my face cruising in my 1965 Shelby."
