Race No. 22: Watkins Glen... The second and final road course race of 2016 takes place in Watkins Glen, N.Y. this Sunday. For Michael Annett and his No. 46 St. Jude Children's Research Hospital Chevrolet team, the 2.45-mile course featuring right-hand turns presents a unique challenge, but one Annett has already encountered; the driver has participated in seven races at The Glen, with his best finish, 11th, coming in the 2012 NASCAR Xfinity Series race.

The St. Jude Tournament of Hope... Annett is sporting a special St. Jude paint scheme this weekend in advance of Monday's St. Jude Tournament of Hope at Glen Oaks Country Club in West Des Moines, Iowa, for which he is the honorary chairperson. The deck lid of the No. 46 Chevrolet contains the names of people that donated at least $46 to St. Jude via the Tournament of Hope website.

Annett on the Team Chevy Stage... On Saturday, August 6, Annett will appear alongside Jeff Gordon on the Team Chevy Stage in the Watkins Glen International Fan Zone at 11:15 am for a Q&A sessions with fans. All fans are welcome to attend.
