• Michael Annett will go to Richmond Raceway this weekend
with three top-five and 11 top-10 finishes in his last 12
NASCAR Xfinity Series starts this season. His average finish
over that span is 8.1.
• In 15 starts at Richmond, Annett has posted four top 10s
and completed 98.9 percent of the laps run in those races.
The Iowa native was ninth in the fall race last year on the
.750-mile oval and has earned a best finish of fifth in 2012.
• Annett’s Pilot Flying J Chevrolet will carry a “Thank You
Truck Drivers” message on the TV panel for both races this
weekend in advance of National Truck Driver Appreciation
Week, which is set for Sept. 13-19.
“Our No. 1 Pilot Flying J team is clicking on all cylinders as
the season heads toward the playoffs. We had a solid run
at Darlington, which is the latest in a series of good finishes
for us, and I think we’re peaking at the right time. Going to
Richmond for two races is going to be important, especially
with Bristol the next track on the list. We’re pretty solid in
points right now and we’re getting ready to make a playoff
run. That starts this weekend.”
TIL NEXT TIME, I AM STILL WORKING ON MY REDNECK!
