Michael Annett Richmond Preview

Michael Annett has a top-five (fifth) and three top-10 finishes in 12 Xfinity Series starts at Richmond, with his best finish coming in the fall race of 2012.

Annett has completed 98.6 percent of the laps contested in his 12 starts at Richmond. He finished 15th in this race last season on the .75-mile oval.

Pilot Flying J is back on the No. 5 this week, with the company’s familiar red, yellow and white scheme. Nine of Annett’s 12 Richmond starts have seen Pilot Flying J on his machine.

Michael Annett Quote: “This weekend, we’re going to concentrate on getting some momentum over the next seven races, and that starts Friday night. We have a chance to set the stage for next season and a return to the NXS Playoffs. We ran very well at Richmond in the spring before we got caught in a couple of accidents, and we expect to do that again on Friday."
