Josh Berry will drive the No. 1 Chevrolet this weekend, as full-time driver Michael Annett continues his recovery from recent leg surgery. This is Berry’s first start on the 2-mile oval in NASCAR competition.
The No. 1 Pilot Flying J Chevrolet will carry a special paint scheme this weekend honoring Trucking Moves America Forward, whose mission is to create a positive image for the industry, which is vital to the nation’s economy.
It is the second race in which the 30-year-old Berry will substitute for Annett. Berry drove the Pilot Flying J Chevrolet to an eighth-place finish on July 17 at New Hampshire Motor Speedway.
“I wish Michael (Annett) the best as he continues his recovery from surgery, and I’ll do everything I can to get a good finish for him, Pilot Flying J, Trucking Moves America Forward and everyone on this No. 1 team. Michigan is a place I’ve never raced at before, and I am anxious to see it in person. It’s wide and has many grooves, so it ought to be exciting.” – Josh Berry
