Michael Annett built on a breakout 2019 season in NASCAR Xfinity Series competition in 2020, and with the nucleus of his No. 1 Pilot Flying J Chevrolet team for JR Motorsports returning for 2021, he is poised to make bigger strides this year.

In 2021, the 34-year-old Annett will enter his fifth season with JR Motorsports with a new crew chief. Veteran Mike Bumgarner will call the shots atop the No. 1 pit box in 2021, taking over for Travis Mack.
