• Michael Annett hits Bristol Motor Speedway this weekend
with three top-five and 13 top-10 finishes in his last 14
races. His average finish over that span is 7.9.
• National Truck Driver Appreciation Week began on Sunday,
and Annett’s No. 1 machine will pay homage to the road
warriors who make our country work. The TV panel carries
a “Thank You Truck Drivers” message as it did this past
week at Richmond.
• Annett’s best NXS finish in 16 starts on Bristol’s high banks
is sixth, in 2011.
• BMS is also the home track of Pilot Flying J, based in
nearby Knoxville, Tenn.
“Our No. 1 Pilot Flying J team is performing well. We had
two good runs at Richmond, clinching a playoff spot on
Friday night. We’ve worked hard all season for the chance
to race for a championship, and we can race for wins
instead of chasing points. We had a really good car earlier
this season at Bristol, but got caught in someone else’s
mess. We are looking forward to a good run to thank all the
truck drivers who keep our country moving as part of
National Truck Driver Appreciation Week.”
TIL NEXT TIME, I AM STILL WORKING ON MY REDNECK!
