Michael Annett Indianapolis Race Preview

Indianapolis Motor Speedway has been good for Annett, as he has top-10 finishes in each of his two NXS starts on the 2.5-mile oval. He finished sixth in 2012 and ninth in 2013.

Annett’s 7.5 average finish at IMS is his best at any track on the NXS schedule.

In four starts this season on tracks 2.5 miles or larger, Annett has a top-10 finish at Talladega and top-14 runs at the first Daytona race and at Pocono.

For the first time this season, Annett will have the black and gold colors of TMC Transportation on the No. 5 JRM Chevrolet.

Quote: “We have always run well at Indy, and the track seems to suit my driving style. It’s big and fast, and the key to being fast there is to get off Turn 2 and Turn 4 for the run down the straightaways. We have been improving every week with our No. 5 Chevrolet, and we welcome TMC as our sponsor this weekend. We had some speed at New Hampshire last weekend, but had a brake issue that didn’t let us show how good we were. I am looking forward to racing again at Indy this weekend.”
