Richmond International Raceway
April 25, 2015


Back-to-Back Short Tracks...Michael Annett and his No. 46 Pilot Flying J Chevrolet team travel to Richmond International Raceway (Va.) for Saturday night's 400-mile NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race. The 3/4-mile track will host the third short track race of 2015, and second in a row following last weekend's event at Bristol Motor Speedway (Tenn.), in which Annett finished 23rd.

Annett's Career History at Richmond...Annett finished 33rd in this race last season, his first career Cup Series start at RIR. He made nine RIR starts in the NASCAR Xfinity Series, with his six most recent outings resulting in top-20 finishes. His best effort was a fifth-place score in the fall 2012 race.

Michael Annett on Richmond International Raceway:
"Richmond is one of my favorite tracks. It's one of those places where, if you're comfortable with your car, you can come through the field and go home with a really good finish, regardless of where you start or what your track position is. We're going to try to find all the speed we can in practice, but having 400 miles to figure things out is definitely helpful."
