In three races on 1.5-mile tracks this season, Michael Annett has a pair of top-10 finishes, the best being a sixth place run at Las Vegas Motor Speedway in March. His average finish on such tracks this season is 8.7.
The Iowa native’s best finish in 15 starts on the 1.5-mile quad-oval at Charlotte Motor Speedway is sixth in this race in 2019. He was seventh on the oval last season and finished ninth on the Roval later on for a solid average of eighth over the two events.
Annett has earned all five of his top-10 finishes this season in the past eight races. He has finishes of sixth, seventh (three times) and 10th.
“With how we were at the other 1.5-mile tracks so far this season, I’m going into this week’s race at Charlotte with some confidence that our Pilot Flying J myRewards Plus Chevrolet will be near the front of the field all day long. We had a good day at COTA, coming from the back, and this whole team is performing better and better each week. It’s time to start pushing for playoff positions, and it’s a home race, so there’s no better time to get it going.” - Michael Annett
