Pocono Race Preview

  • Michael Annett heads to Pocono Raceway this weekend coming off his best career finish on the 2.5-mile triangular track in 2020. Annett finished fifth in last year’s event there.

  • Pocono has been good to Annett the past couple of seasons, as he’s earned a top-five and two top-10 results there.

  • Annett celebrates his 35th birthday on June 23, just four days before this weekend’s race at Pocono.

  • Annett’s recent surge has him 10th in the playoff standings, 53 points above the cut line to advance.

“We ran really well last week at Nashville and had at least a top-five finish within our reach until we got caught in that crash. I like the momentum we’ve got going with our No. 1 Pilot Flying J Chevrolet heading into Pocono, which is a really fun track to drive. Momentum is very important at this stage of the season, and we need to keep earning stage points and good finishes to get ready for the playoffs.” - Michael Annett
