“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
