Sticking to the Strategy...Michael Annett finished 13th in Sunday's Daytona 500, the best single-race result of his young NASCAR Sprint Cup Series career. That finish, his first behind the wheel of the No. 46 Pilot Flying J Chevrolet for HScott Motorsports, was the reward for a successfully-executed strategy that saw Annett bide time outside of the primary drafting pack for much of the day; though he led one lap through an early pit cycle following the first 20 laps of the race, Annett averaged a 23.76-place average running position as part of his conservative game plan. His bid for the win didn't begin in earnest until the final 20 laps.

Key Moment...Annett, who was in 27th place with 20 laps to go, dodged an accident shortly after the final restart to cap off a furious 14-position move through the field for the career-best finish.

Michael Annett on His 13th-Place Finish at Daytona:
"We just wanted to get to those last 20 laps or so. We knew if we could get to the end and - based on what I learned last year and through the Duel race - if I stayed on that yellow line, we'd be fine. Everyone this week at HScott Motorsports was on the same page. We had our strategy. Sometimes strategy changes based on how wild these (plate track) races get, but we stuck to our strategy and came out unscathed."
