Fast fact: Tampa's Aric Almirola waited two days to experience one of the highlights of his first victory in NASCAR's premier series.

It was the iconic car's first victory in 15 years, a span of 544 races. "When he walked up to me, he gave me a hug and he told me he was proud of me," Almirola said, reflecting on his meeting with Petty. "To have Richard Petty come up and tell you he's proud of you, and knowing that you got his No. 43 car back to Victory Lane, is really special. I'll take that with me for the rest of my life." … Matt Kenseth won the September race at the track.

    Lightning Strikes

    TAMPA — The wait felt like forever for Lightning captain Steven Stamkos, having gone 10 months without playing in a game.
