Watkins Glen Race Preview

  • Michael Annett returns to the No. 1 Pilot Flying J Spicy Chicken Sandwich Chevrolet this weekend at Watkins Glen International after missing two races due to injury.

  • On road courses this season, Annett has one top-five and two top-10 finishes in four starts with an average finish of 9.0. His best performance was in the most recent race at Road America, when he finished third.

  • Annett will carry a special paint scheme again this week featuring Pilot Flying J’s entry into the chicken-sandwich game. The new sandwich comes in Southern and Spicy varieties, which are available seven days a week at more than 300 Pilot and Flying J travel centers across the country.

“It will be good to get back in the car at Watkins Glen this weekend. This is crunch time for the NASCAR Xfinity Series Playoffs and we need to get off on the right foot during this stretch. This Pilot Flying J Spicy Chicken Sandwich Chevrolet has been good on road courses this year, and we were third last time out at Road America. Bummy (crew chief Mike Bumgarner) and our No. 1 team are up for this challenge, and it starts this weekend.” - Michael Annett
