Pilot Flying J, Annett to Honor Veterans with Patriotic Paint Scheme

Special Paint Scheme to Run in Three NASCAR Xfinity Series Races

MOORESVILLE, N.C. (October 17, 2018) – The No. 5 Pilot Flying J Chevrolet Camaro from JR Motorsports and driven by Michael Annett will incorporate America’s stars and stripes in its livery during NASCAR Xfinity Series races at Texas Motor Speedway on Saturday, Nov. 3, ISM Raceway on Saturday, Nov. 10 and Homestead-Miami Speedway on Saturday, Nov. 17 in honor of Veterans Day.

Founded by a Korean War veteran, Pilot Flying J, the largest operator of travel centers in North America, is proud to serve these brave men and women at retail locations across the United States.

Annett, whose relationship with Pilot Flying J dates back to 2007, relishes the opportunity to carry the red, white and blue in the final three events of the 2018 season.

“This is without a doubt my favorite Pilot Flying J paint scheme and, considering the meaning behind it, I’m honored to sit behind its wheel,” said Annett. “When our veterans see the No. 5 on the track this fall, they’ll know we’re appreciative of their service.”

In association with the patriotic scheme, Annett will personally give away three VIP prize packages to these races. Please visit twitter.com/michaelannett for details.
