Annett: Racing OnThe Road Course Challenging

Michael Annett

Michael Annett will return to one of his favorite tracks this
weekend, albeit on the Indianapolis Motor Speedway road
course. In five starts on the oval, Annett has two top-10
results, the best a sixth-place effort in 2012.
• The Iowa native enters the weekend on a bit of a run,
having finished fifth at Pocono in the previous event.
• Annett is always around at the finish on road courses. In
1,447 laps of competition in the NASCAR Xfinity Series on
current road courses, Annett has completed all but 10 laps.
• In 21 starts on road courses, Annett’s second-place run at
Road America in 2017 is his best road course finish. He’s
also amassed three top-10 results in that span.

“I always like going back to Indianapolis, and after Pocono
we feel really good about our Pilot Flying J Chevrolet.
Racing on the road course will be a challenge, of course,
but it’s Indy, and that means something. At least we’ll have
some practice this week to get used to the course. Our
Chevrolet has been fast all year, and we are putting
together complete weekends. That’s what we have to do.”
