Texas Race Preview

  • Michael Annett is on a roll at Texas Motor Speedway, earning top-10 finishes in four of the last five events on the 1.5-mile oval. The run includes his career-best finish, fifth, in the 2020 spring race there.

  • The Iowa native will have longtime partner Allstate Peterbilt Group on his No. 1 Chevrolet Camaro this week in honor of the company’s 50th anniversary.

  • Annett has three top-10 finishes on 1.5-mile tracks in 2021 with a best finish of sixth at Las Vegas Motor Speedway.

  • The No. 1 team enters the Round of 8 ranked eighth in the owner’s championship playoffs. They’ll be competing for a berth in the Championship 4 over the next three races.

“We’ve been pretty good at Texas in the past, and this type of track seems to really suit our Allstate Peterbilt Group team. We’ve been running up near the front the last few times we’ve raced there, and Bummy (crew chief Mike Bumgarner) had a great setup the last race. I can’t wait to get out there and get going.” – Michael Annett
