Michael Annett Quote: “Our No. 1 Pilot Flying J team is clicking on all cylinders as the season heads toward the playoffs. We had a solid run at Darlington, which is the latest in a series of good finishes for us, and I think we’re peaking at the right time. Going to Richmond for two races is going to be important, especially with Bristol the next track on the list. We’re pretty solid in points right now and we’re getting ready to make a playoff run. That starts this weekend.” National Truck Driver Appreciation Week: Michael Annett’s No. 1 Pilot Flying J Chevrolet kicks off National Truck Driver Appreciation Week with an homage to the drivers who make America go.
