Michael Annett Quote: “It’s a shame we had that tire go down at Bristol, because we were in great shape with a fast Pilot Flying J Chevy. Our short- track program here at JRM is in good shape too, and having Richmond this weekend is nice because we can build off what Jason (Stockert, crew chief) and the team were able to put together last week. We’ve run a lot better than the results are showing, and that’s very encouraging.”
