Michael Annett Homestead-Miami Preview

Michael Annett’s best finish at Homestead-Miami Speedway in seven NXS starts came last season, when the Iowa native drove to a ninth-place result.

Annett has completed all but two of the 1,200 laps attempted at HMS since 2009 in NXS competition.

Annett will campaign Pilot Flying J’s special paint scheme which honors veterans and their service. Pilot Flying J, the largest operator of travel centers in North America, was founded by a veteran of the Korean War.

Michael Annett Quote: “Based on the last segment of the schedule here, we are gaining on where we want to be when February comes next year. We’ve had speed, been able to race our way forward consistently and had good chemistry and teamwork, and that was what we wanted out of the playoff races. In these last several races, we’ve been in the top 10 or close to it in the final stage, and that’s where you make things happen. This weekend we’re going to cheer on Tyler (Reddick) to bring home another championship for JR Motorsports.”
