Darlington Race Preview

  • Michael Annett is on a roll at Darlington Raceway, having earned consecutive top-10 finishes on the 1.366-mile oval. Annett was seventh this past spring and eighth in the fall race in 2020.

  • In his return to the cockpit last week at Daytona International Speedway after recovering from leg surgery, Annett was running in the top 10 when he was collected in a multi-car crash. He finished 30th after his team repaired significant damage to the car.

  • With three races remaining until the NASCAR Xfinity Series Playoffs, Michael Annett sits 68 points below the cut line.

“We have three weeks, three races to get into the playoffs with our No. 1 Pilot Flying J Thank A Trucker Chevrolet. We had a good run going at Daytona until we got caught up in someone else’s accident. Bummy (crew chief Mike Bumgarner) and the No. 1 team give me great cars every week, and this is go-time for us. We’ve been good the last three times out at Darlington, and we need to be good on Saturday.” – Michael Annett
