• Michael Annett enters the race at Kentucky Speedway on a
run of six top-10 finishes in his last seven starts, with a pair
of third-place efforts his best among them.
• Kentucky has been good to the Iowa native, as his average
finish on the 1.5-mile oval is fourth-best among tracks
currently on the schedule.
• Annett’s best finish at Kentucky is fourth, in 2012, and half
of his 10 starts there have ended in the top 10.
• In five starts on 1.5-mile tracks this season, Annett has an
average finish of 6.4 and finished third in the most recent
event at Chicagoland Speedway.
“Our No. 1 Pilot Flying J Chevrolet has been at its best on
the 1.5-mile tracks this year, with lots of speed and
drivability. I said a couple of weeks ago that racing well on
these types of tracks will pay off in the Playoffs, and it’s
even more the case now. Travis (Mack, crew chief) and the
rest of the team have done a fantastic job of giving me fast
Chevrolet Camaros, and we’ve been in contention to win a
lot of races so far this year. I think you’ll see us in that same
position at Kentucky.”
TIL NEXT TIME, I AM STILL WORKING ON MY REDNECK!
