Atlanta Race Preview

  • In last year’s NASCAR Xfinity Series event at Atlanta Motor Speedway, Michael Annett started 21st and drove to an 11th-place finish, leading three laps in the process.

  • On 1.5-mile tracks in 2020, Annett averaged an eighthplace finish over 12 events, with a pair of fifth-place runs at Kentucky and Texas tops among them. Annett finished 10 of the 12 races inside the top 10.

  • At Atlanta, Annett has been consistent, completing 99.3 percent of the laps in his nine starts.

  • Annett’s best finish of the season, sixth, came at the 1.5- mile Homestead-Miami Speedway last month.

“Getting back to Atlanta will be good for this Pilot Flying J team. We can’t be disappointed with our speed on the West Coast swing, but we need to put some solid finishes together and get back on track. After getting crashed out at Daytona, we were starting to earn those consistent finishes we need, and having the mechanical issue at Phoenix was unusual for us. A good solid run at Atlanta will set us up for the break and get us ready for the heart of the season.” – Michael Annett
