You can’t find a more tried and true NASCAR couple than Aric Almirola and his wife Janice Goss Almirola.
Aric and Janice first met in 2005 when Almirola ran several NASCAR Camping World Truck Series races for Morgan Dollar Motorsports. Janice Gross’ father, Randy Goss, a champion NASCAR pit crew chief, apparently knew the two were a perfect match. He introduced Aric Almirola and Janice Gross on the track at the event. That’s what dad’s are for, right?
Aric Almirola and Janice Gross began dating shortly thereafter and were engaged to be married in November 2009. The Cuban Missile apparently stayed out of the wedding planning process, and only voiced his opinion in on the big stuff. And on December 11th, 2010, the couple tied the knot in a ceremony attended by close friends and family in Huntersville, N.C., with a reception afterwards in nearby Mooresville.
Since then, the NASCAR family has grown. On September 5th, 2012, their baby boy, Alex Almirola was born. According to Aric Almirola’s twitter account, it was the “Best day of my life! Better than any trophy or accomplishment.” And on November 29, 2013 their baby girl, Abby Lynn Almirola, was born. Before the recent birth of Abby Lynn Almirola, the couple could frequently be found on the racetrack with baby Alex. It would seem the family will continue their racetrack outings once baby Abby is settled in. And with the couple spending so much time at the racetrack, it wouldn’t be a surprise if Alex and Abby became the next brother/sister legends of NASCAR.
