Michael Annett has one year of experience at Martinsville in Cup and no other effort in NASCAR’s other series. A second season will increase his comfort level on the bullring.
In two starts, his best finish was a 24th last fall compared to a 31st in the spring. That rapid improvement makes him a fantasy driver to watch this week. Mar 26 - 10:46 AM

Michael Annett is looking for some success on unrestricted, intermediate speedways this year. His best result on a non-restrictor plate track so far was a 29th at Atlanta in the Quik Trip 500.

Annett was six laps off the pace in that race and will need some luck to fall his way to finish with the leaders. Last fall, he completed all 341 laps at Texas in a Tommy Baldwin Racing car.

Michael Annett was a little too loose at the beginning of practice for the Kobalt 400. He spun off turn four, but did not make contact with the wall.

Annett’s crew tightened the car up and sent him back out. Halfway through the session, he was posted midway on the chart with a speed of 184.672 mph.

Michael Annett will replace Brian Scott in the No. 33 this week, according to a tweet from the track.

Annett is attempting to run the entire schedule while Scott is not and he was one of the 13 drivers who failed to clear inspection yesterday. He will take his sponsor to the No. 33 and add some resources to the lightly-funded team. Annett will have to start at the back of the pack due to the driver change, but his starting position will officially be listed as 32nd and games that offer place differential points will be based on that.

In 10 previous attempts on similarly-configured, 1.5-mile tracks in the Cup series, Michael Annett has finished better than he started eight times.

At Atlanta last year he advanced from 25th to 21st, but his last attempt at Texas showed even better improvement. He qualified 33rd and finished 22. This makes him a decent value in contests that award place differential points like the Fantasy Live game.

Michael Annett made four starts on restrictor-plate, superspeedways last year and sustained crash damage each time. He failed to finish both the Daytona 500 and Geico 500 and was credited with 37th-place results.

Bad luck can be hard to shake, so Annett should not be considered a potential dark horse for this week’s Daytona 500. He almost cracked the top 15 last May in the Aaron’s 499 after sustaining some damage, however.

Michael Annett and sponsor Pilot Flying J will move from Tommy Baldwin Racing to Harry Scott Motorsports as that organization expands to a two-car team.

This team should be watched closely in the opening races of 2015. A technical alliance with Stewart-Haas Racing and Hendrick Motorsports will make them competitive even though the organization is still young. With good equipment, Annett should be able to score his first Cup top-15 this season; last year he earned 12 top-25s, which equaled one-third of his starts.

Jay Guy will be the crew chief for the No. 46 Pilot Flying J Chevy driven by Michael Annett in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series.

Guy joins the team from Front Row Motorsports where he most recently served as crew chief for David Gilliland. Guy has one win in the NSCS, which was at Talladega in 2013 with driver David Ragan. He has also served as crew chief at Team Penske and Furniture Row Racing.-HScott Motorsports

HScott Motorsports enters the 2015 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series (NSCS) season with a new look as it expands to two cars.

Justin Allgaier will return to the No. 51 BRANDT Chevrolet while Michael Annett joins the team and will drive a Chevrolet (possibly the No. 46) adorned by longtime anchor partner Pilot Flying J. Annett competed in all 36 points races during his 2014 rookie NSCS campaign and posted several top-20 finishes, including 19th at Fontana, 16th at Talladega and 18th at Kentucky. From 2008 through 2013, Annett competed full time in the NASCAR XFINITY Series, where he started 163 races and earned seven top-five and 34 top-10 finishes. Prior to his NASCAR career, Annett competed in the ARCA Racing Series in 2007 and 2008, winning races at Talladega and Daytona.-HScott Motorsports

Michael Annett has made only one previous start at Charlotte, but he has already shown some improvement this weekend. In the Coke 600, he was forced to take a provisional to make the show; on Thursday night, he qualified on time and will start the Bank of America 500 in 35th.

Annett finished the May race respectably in 28th. If he can continue to show improvement in race trim, he could manage a top-25, which would make him one of the top values this week at his salary cap level in most games.

Michael Annett had a six-race streak of top-30 finishes to his credit entering the most recent similarly-configured, 1.5-mile track race at Chicagoland. He lost 30 laps in that event with a mechanical gremlin and finished 40th in the 400.

That is offset a little by an 18th-place finish at Kentucky to give Annett a seven-race average of 27.1 on this track type in 2014. It is not enough to make him an anchor on anyone’s roster, but could make him one of the best bargains of the Hollywood Casino 400.

Michael Annett has shown consistency on short, flat tracks this season. In five races at Phoenix, Martinsville, Richmond, and New Hampshire he has scored 30-something results in every race.

Annett’s Camping World RV Sales 301 result was a 32nd, which puts him on the cusp of being fantasy relevant in some circumstances. If he qualifies in the high 30s this wee, he is liable to earn place differential points in games that offer them.

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.

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.
