Phoenix Race Preview

  • Michael Annett will seek his third top-10 finish in his last four starts at Phoenix Raceway this weekend and sixth overall in the NASCAR Xfinity Series. His best finish there came in 2012, when the Iowa native finished seventh.

  • On tracks measuring a mile or less in length this season, Annett has six top-10 finishes in eight starts.

  • Annett has been remarkably consistent at Phoenix, completing 98.5 percent of the laps run in his 16 starts there.

  • Annett’s No. 1 Chevrolet will return to the red, white and yellow of primary sponsor Pilot Flying J this weekend.

“We were just too loose last time out at Phoenix, and Travis (Mack, crew chief) and I have come up with a solution for that this weekend. We have run well at Phoenix, and I am determined to end the season on a high note and hopefully help my teammate Justin Allgaier celebrate the NXS title this weekend. It’s the best way to end the season, with a good finish and a championship for JR Motorsports.” - Michael Annett
