Michael Annett Fontana Preview

Michael Annett’s best NXS finish at Fontana came in 2009, when he was sixth at the checkered flag.

Consistency is important, and Annett certainly has that at ACS. In seven starts there, Annett has completed 99.8 percent of laps attempted in NXS competition on the 2-mile oval.

On tracks measuring 2 miles or more, Annett has a top- five finish and six in the top 10 over his NXS career.

By virtue of making his 200th NXS start at Phoenix, Annett joins teammates Elliott Sadler (366) and Justin Allgaier (244) in the 200-start club.

Michael Annett Quote: “Auto Club Speedway is big and fast, and I like tracks like that. You can run different grooves there, and that’s what we need to have. At Phoenix, it is fairly line-specific, and when you get pinned on the bottom there’s not much you can do to change your position. Jason (Stockert, crew chief) and the Pilot Flying J team worked hard last week to get spots, and the pit crew has been really good all season. We’re looking for a good result this weekend that we can take into the break and hit the ground running in Texas.”
