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. Jul 21 - 7:58 PM

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

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
