Kansas Race Preview

  • Michael Annett enters this weekend’s race at Kansas Speedway on a run of three straight top-eight finishes at the 1.5-mile oval. Annett finished eighth in his last two starts there, with a fourth-place run in the fall of 2019 as his best finish in 10 total starts.

  • The No. 1 team enters the second race of the Round of 8 in the owner’s championship playoffs eighth in the standings, just 19 points off a transfer spot to the Championship 4 with two races remaining.

  • The Iowa native will return to his familiar Pilot Flying J livery this weekend, with Pilot Flying J’s MyRewards Plus messaging on the TV panel.

“Our Pilot Flying J Chevrolet has been solid at Kansas the last three times we’ve raced there, and our run last week at Texas was solid all the way around. We had speed and could race with the leaders. I expect to have the same thing this weekend and to move forward in the owner’s playoff standings. We made good progress last week, and we need to do that again to have a chance to move on to the Championship 4 after Martinsville.” – Michael Annett
