Atlanta Race Preview

Michael Annett will seek his second top-10 finish of the season this weekend at Atlanta, following his seventh- place finish three weeks ago at Las Vegas Motor Speedway.


• Annett’s best finish at Atlanta is 10th in 2012, and he was 12th in this race a year ago in his Pilot Flying J Chevrolet.

• Consistency is king for the Iowa native at Atlanta, as he’s completed 99.2 percent of the laps run in his eight starts on the 1.54-mile oval.

• The 1.5-mile tracks on the schedule have seen Annett post six top-five and 22 top-10 finishes in his career.


“We had some tough luck on the West Coast swing, but our No. 1 Pilot Flying J team is ready to change all that this weekend at Atlanta. We’ve been solid on the 1.5-mile tracks and we had a great race at Las Vegas, so I’d love to get back into the groove this weekend. The track surface at Atlanta means you have to manage your stuff to be around at the end, and that’s what we plan to do on Saturday.” - Michael Annett
