Circuit of the Americas Race Preview

  • Michael Annett will be going for his third straight top-10 finish this weekend as the NASCAR Xfinity Series visits Circuit of the Americas for the first time. The Iowa driver has five such finishes in 10 races this season, including three of the last five events.

  • On road courses in 2020, Annett logged three top-10 finishes in four starts, with a pair of ninth-place results at Indianapolis and the Charlotte Roval as his best.

  • The Iowa native’s best road-course finish is second, at Road America in 2017 during his first season as driver of the Pilot Flying J Chevrolet for JR Motorsports.

“Going to Circuit of the Americas for the first time will be interesting, never having raced there before. Our roadcourse program has been very strong over the years here at JR Motorsports, and I don’t expect anything different this weekend. The key to success on a road course in a stock car is to keep it on the pavement, and that is what we’ll do. Our No. 1 team has had a couple of good runs in a row and we want to keep that momentum building.” - Michael Annett
