In last year’s event at Martinsville Speedway, Michael Annett started 11th and finished eighth. It was his best career finish on the .526-mile oval.
On short tracks in 2020, Annett logged three top-10 efforts in five starts, finishing seventh twice at Richmond Raceway and eighth at Martinsville.
The Iowa native has logged nine top-10 finishes in his last 11 starts on short tracks, with three each at Richmond and Bristol, two at Iowa and one at Martinsville.
Annett has earned both of his top 10s this season in the past three races, finishing sixth at Las Vegas and seventh at Atlanta.
“Our No. 1 Pilot Flying J Chevrolet was pretty good at Martinsville last fall and I’m looking forward to getting back there and improving our finish. After some initial bad luck to start the season, I think we’re starting to build some momentum for the middle stages. We’ve had fast cars every week, and the finishes will come. I had a lot of fun at Martinsville last year and want to get back there and do it again.” – Michael Annett
