• By virtue of his season-opening victory at Daytona, Michael
will begin the Round of 12 in the NXS Playoffs at
Richmond Raceway as the seventh seed, 46 points behind
the lead.
• Annett’s best NXS finish at Richmond came in the fall of
2012, when he logged a fifth-place result.
• In 14 starts on the .750-mile oval, Annett has logged one
top-five and three top-10 finishes, leading four laps.
• On tracks measuring less than a mile so far this season,
Annett has four top-10 finishes and an average result of
9.8 in five starts.

“The playoffs are finally here, and we can’t wait to turn up
the wick and go get them this weekend at Richmond. After
we won at Daytona, we knew we were in, and we have
been working all season long to get to this weekend. The
key for us and the No. 1 Pilot Flying J team is to be fast, be
solid and advance to the Round of 8. That starts Friday
night. We’ve had fast cars and a lot of good strategy, so
we’re going to step it up and focus on advancing. That’s all
that matters now.”
