Michael Annett will return to the 2.66-mile Talladega
Superspeedway seeking more this weekend. Last season,
the Iowa driver earned his first pole in NXS competition
there and was running second when he was caught up in
an accident in the late going.
• Annett’s best finish at Talladega is seventh in 2017, his first
race there with JR Motorsports. He’s led 16 laps as well.
• On the two superspeedways the NXS competes on, Annett
has earned both his first career victory (Daytona 2019) and
first career pole (Talladega 2019) in addition to a pair of
top fives and four top-10 finishes.
“At Homestead, we had chances to win or at least place in
the top five in both races, and that’s a good place to be in
coming to one of my favorite tracks. We were fast the last
few times we’ve been at Talladega, and won the pole there
last year. When we got crashed, we were battling for the
lead. I know that Travis (Mack, crew chief) and the guys
have another hot rod ready to go for me this weekend and
I can’t wait to get on track and see what the Pilot Flying J
Chevrolet can do.”
TILL NEXT TIME, I AM STILL WORKING ON MY REDNECK!
