Michael Annett’s best NASCAR Xfinity Series finish at his
home track in Iowa is fourth, coming in 2012.
• The Iowa native will have an Iowa company on his No. 1
Chevrolet this weekend, as TMC Transportation’s black and
gold livery will be featured. TMC is based in nearby Des
• Following his third-place finish at Michigan, Annett is on a
streak of four straight top-10 finishes dating back to Dover
in May. His average finish over that span is 6.8.
• On tracks measuring 1 mile or less this season, Annett has
earned three top-10 finishes in four starts and averages 9.8
per finish in those races.
“Iowa is when I start really bugging my teammate, Justin
Allgaier. He really has taken to Iowa really well, and I spend
a lot of time up in that lounge when we’re there. I think
that getting into Turn 1 at Iowa, it’s probably one of the
roughest tracks we go to. There’s a really big bump getting
into Turn 1 that can really upset the car. You have to drive
Iowa like a short track. You have to be aggressive, you have
to have a car that can move around. You can run the
bottom or two inches off the wall. It drives like a short
track, you can be really aggressive and you have to take
every inch when you can get it.”
TIL NEXT TIME, I AM STILL WORKING ON MY REDNECK!
