Michael Annett finished in the mid to high-20s in the first four races held on the similarly-configured, 1.5-mile tracks this year, but he may wind up on a few fantasy owners’ radar screens after finishing 18th in the Quaker State 400 at Kentucky.
As a rookie, Annett was supposed to struggle at the beginning of the season and this is a team that comes to compete every week. He could be a good value if a fantasy player needs a bargain-basement driver. Aug 27 - 4:52 PM

Five of Michael Annett’s six flat track races this year ended in the low- to mid-30s. The only time he failed to finish in that range was at Pocono when he crossed under the checkers 20th.

Annett will have his work cut out for him because he will roll off the grid 38th on Sunday, but if he can advance into the 20s he will earn a lot of place-differential points in contests that award them, such as the NASCAR Fantasy Live game.

Michael Annett will make his first Indy attempt this week, but fantasy owners can look to his other flat track efforts to help predict where the No. 7 Tommy Baldwin Racing Chevrolet will finish.

Three of his five attempts on minimally-banked tracks this season ended in the 30s, but there is a reason to be hopeful that he will finish better in the Crown Royal 400. His Pocono 400 effort ended in a 20th-place finish and both tracks are measured and 2.5-miles. That extra room should allow Annett to steer clear of trouble.

The last time Michael Annett was at Daytona, he was running in the top 10 with less than 50 laps to go.

It was his debut race in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series and, to him, nothing would've been more thrilling than winning the Daytona 500 in his first-ever race in NASCAR's premier division. That dream ended in a multi-car accident on lap 162. This weekend, Annett returns to Daytona hungry for more.-Rising Star Management

In the last two weeks Michael Annett and Tommy Baldwin Racing have had uplifting showings.

At Dover, he ran as high as 18th before experiencing damage from the track's broken concrete, a cut tire and a broken shock mount, all in the span of 100 laps. At Pocono, he led and was running in 15th at the time of the race's final restart before braking to avoid a slowing car (finished 20th). Though the finishes might not be indicative of their efforts, Annett and team feel they are progressing as a race team. In five Nationwide Series races at Michigan from 2009 to 2013, he averaged a 15.8-place result with a best finish of 12th coming in 2012.-Rising Star Management

NASCAR Sprint Cup Series rookie Michael Annett had never competed in a race at the uniquely shaped Pocono Raceway prior to Sunday.

That didn't deter his ability to race and finish well. He scored a 20th-place finish against a 43-car field. The result sufficed as his third-best finish of the 2014 season.-Rising Star Management

A graduate of the NASCAR Nationwide Series, Michael Annett has never competed at the triangle-shaped Pocono Raceway.

That doesn't mean success isn't in the cards - the track has a history of mixing things up. It has seen seven different winners across the last eight races there, and played host to wins by Carl Edwards in 2005 and Denny Hamlin in 2006, both in their first ever visits to the facility. Annett, who participated in a test session there last week, hopes to follow in their footsteps.-Rising Star Management Group
