Texas Race Preview

Michael Annett heads to Texas Motor Speedway this weekend in search of a third straight top-10 finish on a 1.5- mile track in the NASCAR Xfinity Series.


  • In seven starts this season on 1.5-mile tracks, Annett has one top-five and five top-10 finishes. His average finish on these tracks in 2020 is 8.9.

  • At Texas, Annett has two top-10 finishes, his sixth-place run last spring the best of those. He’s also completed 99 percent of the laps run in his 15 starts there.

  • In addition to his streak on 1.5-mile tracks, Annett is on a run of four straight finishes in the top 10. He has two fifth- place runs, an eighth and a ninth in that span.


“Coming off a great weekend in Kentucky, I’m looking forward to keeping the momentum rolling this week at Texas. We had fast Chevrolets at Kentucky and had a chance to double up on top fives, and that just shows the strength of this No. 1 team. Over our last four races, we have an average finish of 6.8, and we’re looking to keep that going this weekend at Texas.”
