Michael Annett Watkins Glen Preview

Michael Annett will wear the familiar Pilot Flying J colors on his No. 5 Chevrolet Camaro this weekend at Watkins Glen International.

In five NXS starts on the 2.45-mile road course, Annett has a best finish of 11th in 2012. He’s completed all but three of the 413 laps run over those five starts.

With seven races left until the playoff field is decided, Annett has a 32-point cushion in the point standings. He currently sits 11th in the standings.

Quote: “I am looking forward to getting back to Watkins Glen this weekend. We’ve had some good speed in our No. 5 Pilot Flying J Chevrolet the last several weeks, but haven’t been able to take advantage for one reason or another. Last week at Iowa, we had an ignition problem. My crew chief Jason Stockert and the rest of the No. 5 team are putting good cars under me every week, and this week at the Glen is a great place to get it going to solidify our playoff standing.”
