Michael Annett Richmond Preview

In 10 NASCAR Xfinity Series starts at Richmond, Annett has one top five and three top 10s, with a best finish of fifth (fall 2012).

Earlier this season, Annett finished eighth in his first JRM start on the .750-mile D-shaped oval.

Over his last four starts at Richmond, Annett’s average finish is a stout 8.5, with his top-five run plus two top 10s.

Annett is currently ninth in series points, but 11th on the playoff grid. He has 23 points in hand over the cutoff with two races left before the playoff field is set.

Quote: “After the run we had at Road America and a decent showing at Darlington, we are focused on getting into the playoffs at Richmond. We finished in the top 10 in the spring race, and if we can do that again, we will look pretty good heading to Chicagoland for the cutoff race. Jason (Stockert, crew chief) and the guys are giving me great cars, and if I can qualify a little better, we’ll be in really good shape.”
