Talladega Tolls for Thee...The biggest racetrack on the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series looms for Michael Annett and his No. 46 Pilot Flying J Chevrolet team, as they take on Alabama's Talladega Superspeedway. The 2.66-mile restrictor plate track will host close-proximity racing that suits Annett, a former winner at the facility, very well.

Annett at the Restrictor Plate Tracks...Last year at Talladega, Annett finished 16th. This past February in the Daytona 500, he finished 13th. Both races serve as his two best outings to date in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series. Annett is also a former race winner at Talladega, having won the 2007 ARCA Series event.

Pizza Party...PJ Fresh Pizza, available at more than 250 Pilot and Flying J Travel Centers across North America, will be featured on Annett's No. 46 Pilot Flying J Chevrolet this weekend. To help introduce Pilot Flying J's quality pizza offerings, Annett and his Pilot Flying J race team will turn the Pilot Travel Center in Lincoln, Alabama into a pit stop for customers on Thursday afternoon, Oct. 22. The race team will pump gas for cars, diesel for trucks and pass out free samples of PJ Fresh Pizza to hungry customers. NASCAR fans coming out to Talladega Superspeedway can also stop by the PJ Fresh Pizzeria outside of the track on Oct. 23 and Oct. 24 from 11:30 am CT to 7:30 pm to enjoy free, "Unexpectedly Awesome" slices and other giveaways, including road trip gift baskets.

Michael Annett on Talladega Superspeedway:
"Anything can happen riding around in packs on these restrictor plate tracks. It's a 500-mile race, but those closing laps are where, if everything falls into place, your race is made. Prior to that, it will be important to make sure our car can suck up and maneuver in the draft."
