Michael Annett Texas Preview

Michael Annett’s best NXS finish at Texas Motor Speedway is ninth in the spring race in 2012. The Iowa native has made 10 NXS starts on the 1.5-mile speedway.

The 31-year-old’s best finish on a 1.5-mile oval so far in 2017 is 14th, which came in the series’ most recent race at Kansas Speedway.

Annett is 22 points out of ninth place in the standings, trailing Brendan Gaughan, with three races yet to run in the season.

Quote: “We haven’t been as successful on 1.5-mile tracks this year as we could have been, but the last race at Kansas showed that we are getting better. We are still in the running to finish ninth in the points, and that is our goal, to finish as high in the points as we can and help our teammates win the NXS championship. (Crew chief) Jason Stockert and our No. 5 Pilot Flying J team are committed to putting the best car on the track and getting the best possible finish every weekend.”
