Pocono Race Preview

  • Michael Annett will seek to improve on last year’s eighth-place finish on the 2.5-mile triangular track of Pocono Raceway. The finish is his best at the track in NASCAR Xfinity Series competition.

  • On 2.5-mile tracks in NXS competition, Annett has a victory (Daytona 2019), two top-five and six top-10 finishes.

  • In three starts at Pocono in the series, Annett has finished 13th in 2017, 35th in 2018 after a crash, and eighth last season. Minus the 2018 event, his average finish is 10.5.

  • Annett’s ninth-place run at Talladega moved him up a spot to ninth in the series standings after 11 races, solidly in the mix for the playoffs.

“Our Pilot Flying J Chevrolet has been so good this year, and at Talladega we were as good as any car out there. We’ve been leading laps, running at the front and following our strategy, and that’s going to get us to the front every week. Pocono presents a unique challenge for our teams, but with (crew chief) Travis Mack and our No. 1 team, we’re up for it and looking forward to Sunday.” - Michael Annett
