The last time Michael Annett raced at Phoenix Raceway, he came away with a fourth-place finish in the 2020 season finale. It was his best finish at the 1-mile oval in 17 starts.
Tracks measuring 1 mile in the NASCAR Xfinity Series have been good for Annett. In three of his last four races on such tracks, Annett has finished in the top 10.
At Phoenix, Annett has been fast and consistent, completing 98.6 percent of the laps in his 17 starts with the top-five in 2020 and seven finishes inside the top 10.
Racing out West agrees with Annett. In his last seven starts west of the Mississippi, Annett has averaged a finish of 6.2 with a pair of top-five finishes and seven top-10s.
"We were pretty good at Las Vegas and got our first top 10 of the season after some pretty awful luck so far. The Pilot Flying J Chevrolet was fast when it counted, the same way it was last year at Phoenix, and we scored points in both segments for the first time this year. That's a good track for us and we need to do well to keep the momentum building. I'm proud of Mike Bumgarner (crew chief) and all the No. 1 guys for giving me great Chevrolets every week. It's all about momentum now." - Michael Annett
