Michael Annett will go to Talladega Superspeedway 10th in points, just 10 markers out of the top eight following race one of the NASCAR Xfinity Series Playoffs.
Talladega’s 2.66-mile oval is where Annett earned his first career NXS pole position, doing so in 2019.
With six races remaining in the season, Annett has 17 top- 10 finishes and three in the top five.
This season, Annett has a top 10 and two finishes in the top 12 on restrictor-plate tracks, finishing seventh at the second Daytona race. His average finish in three starts at Daytona and Talladega this year is 10.0, and he led 11 laps at Talladega earlier this year.
“Travis Mack and the No. 1 team prepares great restrictor- plate cars for me, and we’ve had a lot of success at both Daytona and Talladega. This is a big weekend for everyone as Talladega is a wild-card in the playoffs, and we want to go there, run well and set ourselves up to advance to the Round of 8. We’ve been fast and led laps, but we’re really looking for a victory this weekend. I know we have the Pilot Flying J Chevrolet to do that, and I can’t wait to get there and get started.” - Michael Annett
