Michael Annett Kansas Preview

Michael Annett’s best finish at Kansas in his six NXS starts came in 2012, when the Iowa native finished eighth.

Annett has been markedly consistent at Kansas, completing 98.3 percent of the laps attempted in his six starts on the 1.5-mile oval.

On 1.5-mile tracks in the Xfinity Series this season, Annett’s best finish of 12th came at Charlotte Motor Speedway in May.

All laps led this season by Annett and the No. 5 team have taken place on racetracks measuring a mile-and-a-half in length.

Michael Annett Quote: “Getting back to the 1.5-mile tracks is good for our Pilot Flying J team after a ton of road courses and the Roval at Charlotte. We ran well at Dover a couple of weeks ago, and I am anxious to put some of the things we’ve learned these past few races to work at Kansas. We’re doing a good job of finding a baseline for the remaining races this season, including the two on 1.5-mile tracks at Texas and Homestead, and will hopefully put those to good use for 2019.”
