Michael Annett has 10 previous starts on restrictor-plate, superspeedways with a best finish of 13th at Daytona and a 16th at Talladega SuperSpeedway.
On a track type that favors dark horses, the 10-race milestone is fairly significant without a top-10 finish. Annett has only three total top-20s and one of these came this July in the Coke Zero 400. There are better dark horse contenders out there. Oct 19 - 10:32 PM

Michael Annett enters the Bank of America 500 with a 13-race streak of running at the end of the race on similarly-configured, 1.5-mile tracks.

All of these attempts came in the No. 46 HScott Motorsports entry. None of them ended on the lead lap. He has not always been a great value, but he scored a top-30 six times in this span including a 26th this July at Kentucky Speedway.

In his last two races on this track, Josh Wise finished 36th at Dover International Speedway. As it turned out, he was followed across the finish line both times by Michael Annett, who has back-to-back 37ths.

Annett has been the worse option not only for that one lost position, but also because he has failed to score more than one positive place-differential point in these two combined starts. In fall 2014 and spring 2015, he lost positions from his qualification effort and fantasy owners will want to look elsewhere for a dark horse.

Michael Annett has finished better than he started in the last 12 races in the NASCAR Cup series. This is important in games that offer place-differential points.

This current streak includes a 33rd-place finish after starting 37th at New Hampshire Motor Speedway and a 31st from 37th at Richmond International Raceway. Annett will start the Bad Boy Off Road 300 from 35th.

Michael Annett has finished between 26th and 36th in six starts on similarly-configured, 1.5-mile tracks this season. Two of his results were 30th-place results and two others were 32nd.

In all of his starts, Annett began the race in a narrow range of 34th to 39th. He finished better than he started in the last 10 similarly-configured, 1.5-mile track attempts dating back to last September’s Chicagoland Speedway race. This week, he starts 37th and should keep that streak alive.
Sep 16 - 6:48 PM

Michael Annett will almost certainly finish in the 30s this week. In five previous Richmond International Raceway starts, he has finished between 33rd and 37th four times. The only time he failed to finish that well was in this race last year when an accident sent him home last in 43rd.

Annett’s relative value will depend on where he starts this week. In three of the four races when he was running at the end, he finished better than he started. He should earn positive place-differential points again.
Sep 9 - 1:45 PM

Michael Annett has made two previous starts at Darlington Raceway and sustained significant damage in both events. He failed to finish in 2014 and was 39th with crash damage from two incidents last year.

Since Annett has not yet gone the distance, it is impossible to predict how he will finish. With only 40 cars on a 2016 roster, however, he will almost certainly get a career-best finish.
Sep 1 - 7:39 PM

Michael Annett has finished better than he started in the past four races on two-mile tracks. His best effort in that span of events was a 28th earned this June at Michigan International Speedway.

Annett is not the first driver who comes to mind on unrestricted, intermediate speedways, but he has finished on the lead lap in both two-mile track races this year. He missed Bristol because of flu-like symptoms, but should be a good value in the Pure Michigan 400 if he is healthy.

Justin Allgaier will substitute for Michael Annett in the Bass Pro Shops NRA Night Race at Bristol Motor Speedway due to Annett suffering flu-like symptoms. Make certain Annett is not on any of your rosters.

Annett was originally scheduled to start 39th, so Allgaier does not have far to go to drop to the back. The No. 46 HScott Motorsports team is likely to gain positions mostly based on attrition.
Aug 20 - 7:20 PM

Michael Annett has competed in five Bristol races during his career and all but one of them has been marred by an incident. He failed to finish once due to an accident, once because of a blown engine, and twice had damage when he reached the checkered flag. This spring, he was involved in two separate incidents.

Annett was also involved in two incidents in spring 2015 and lost four laps. That race had heavy attrition and marks his career-best result of 23rd on this track. He will need attrition this week as well in order to move up the grid.

Michael Annett has been almost perfect in regard to place-differential points. In 22 races this year, he has finished better than he started in all but one of the events in which he was running at the end. In three races, he experienced accidents and lost two total spots. He also fell five positions in the Daytona 500 to finish 27th.

On average this year he has picked up five positions per race. That suggests that he is almost always going to finish close to where he qualifies, which is a consistency fantasy owners can use to their advantage.
Aug 8 - 6:38 PM

Michael Annett qualified 39th for the Pennsylvania 400 at Pocono Raceway with a lap of 169.750 mph. That is more than nine miles per hour slower than pole sitter Martin Truex Jr. and he will likely be one of the first drivers lapped.

This is the fourth time in six starts Annett has started 36th or worse, but most points get paid when the checkers wave. In three of his previous five attempts, Annett finished in the 20s and earned positive place-differential points. If he is needed in order to stretch the salary cap at the top of the list, he should be considered.

HScott Motorsports announced Mike Hillman Sr. will climb on top of the pit box for Michael Annett, according to NBC’s Dustin Long. Former crew chief Jay Guy will take on the role of technical director.

The No. 46 team has a lot of talent in the office and at the track. They need a little more funding in order to become a weekly contender for top-10s.
Jul 19 - 4:30 PM

Michael Annett has made two previous starts at Kentucky Speedway and his second effort will be the more predictive of the two. Annett finished 18th in 2014, but could only manage a 30th last year.

In fact, 30th might be a bit of a stretch for a driver with an average practice ranking of 35.8. Look for him to finish near his starting position of 37th and move up only by attrition.
Jul 9 - 12:42 PM

Michael Annett has crashed in every other race for the past eight weeks and if the pattern holds, he is destined to wreck again in the Toyota / Save Mart 350 at Sonoma Raceway.

Annett’s rollercoaster actually started at Texas Motor Speedway. He crashed but remained on track in the Duck Commander 500 and then again in the Food City 500 at Bristol Motor Speedway. Since then he has recorded DNFs (Did Not Finish) at Talladega SuperSpeedway, Dover International Speedway, and Pocono Raceway. Last week he completed all the laps at Michigan International Speedway for the first time since March, so that may break the cycle.
