Michael Annett Dover Preview

Michael Annett’s best NXS finish at Dover came in 2012, when he claimed a strong third-place finish in the fall race on the 1-mile concrete oval.

Consistency is the story for Annett at the Monster Mile, as he has completed all but 10 of the 2,414 laps in 12 starts there (99.6 percent).

Annett’s strong showing at Talladega last week gained him 27 points on 12th place in the points. The 31-year-old Iowa native is just 12 points out of the playoffs after nine races.

Of the 1-mile tracks on the schedule, Annett’s average finish at Dover (13.3) is his second-best result. His best average finish on those tracks is 12.8 at Loudon.

Michael Annett Quote: “The recent races have shown that our Pilot Flying J Chevrolet has speed, but we still need to show that we can finish inside the top 10. We’ve had the car to do it, but not the luck we’ve needed to make it happen. Last week at Talladega, we qualified in the top five, ran with the leaders and earned stage points, so we know it is just a matter of time. Dover has been good to me in the past, and we’re looking forward to doing more of the same this weekend.”
