  • 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.

“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
