Michael Annett Indianapolis Preview

In three NXS starts at the famed 2.5-mile track, Michael Annett has two top-10 finishes, the best a sixth in 2012.

Last year, Annett qualified fifth for the 100-lap event, but finished 25th after mechanical trouble mid-race.

Consistency is Annett’s calling card at Indianapolis. Throughout his NXS career there, he has completed all but one of the 300 laps (99.7%).

Annett will seek to add to a recent streak, with two top-10 finishes in his last three starts. His average finish in those races is 9.6. Annett remains 13th in the points, challenging for the final spot in the NXS Playoffs with two races remaining.

Michael Annett Quote: “After a good run at Darlington, we need to be even better this weekend at Indy. I like the track, because it’s really fast, and we’ve run well there in the past. Last year, we had a great qualifying effort and had good speed, but had a mechanical problem that put us a lap down. I really feel like we’re hitting a stride here, and we need every point and some help to make the NASCAR Xfinity Series Playoffs for the second year in a row.”
