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.

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.

Michael Annett has shown a lot of consistency on road courses. In four starts on this track type, he has finished better than he started each time and was running at the end of every race. He also scored results in a narrow range of 30th to 33rd after starting between 40th and 42nd.

With only 40 cars in attendance, he is liable to finish in that same range this week, but he might not earn as many place-differential points if he qualifies better.

Brad Keselowski, Martin Truex Jr., Clint Bowyer, and Michael Annett were late to the first qualification session after their cars had difficulty passing inspection at Michigan International Speedway for the Firekeepers Casino 400.

NASCAR delayed qualification because it took a while to clear the field with the new aerodynamic package, but when these cars failed inspection they were sent to the back of the line. Keselowski and Bowyer cleared about three minutes into the first session, but they were rushed to the line. Truex finally passed with 15 minutes remaining in round 1. Annett cleared with 12 minutes remaining as a caution waved over the session.

Michael Annett is still seeking his first complete race at Michigan International Speedway. In four starts there, he has failed to finish on the lead lap a single time.

Annett does have two complete races at Auto Club Speedway, however. On this sister, two-mile track he went the full distance in his first attempt in 2014 and this spring. Annett finished only 29th in March, however, and is only on the cusp of being a good value.

The tide turned for Michael Annett at Texas Motor Speedway, but not in a good way. In his first six starts this season, he finished on the lead lap twice and was running without incident at the end of every show.

At Texas Annett sustained crash damage and lost five laps to finish 32nd. That is part of four crashed-marred events in his last six attempts and he has failed to finish two of the last three.

Michael Annett has struggled to find speed at Dover International Speedway so far this weekend, which should come as no surprise. This is his second worst track in regard to average finishes with a 38.5 in four starts.

So far this weekend, Annett has posted only the 37th-fastest time in both practice sessions and he is likely to finish in that same range. If there is enough attrition during the AAA 400 Drive for Autism, he could earn a few place-differential points, however.
May 14 - 12:16 PM

Nine of Michael Annett’s 12 starts on similarly-configured, 1.5-mile tracks in the No. 46 have ended in a result somewhere in the 30s, including all three race this season and the last two of 2015.

Annett came close to getting into the high-20s at Atlanta Motor Speedway and Las Vegas Motor Speedway though. He finished 30th in both races. More importantly, he has finished better than he started in his last seven races on this track type, which means he has earned positive place-differential points and could be a great way to extend one’s salary cap.

When Dale Earnhardt Jr. spun into Kasey Kahne and Michael Annett, he was the first driver to wreck, but was far from the last. By the end of the Geico 500 at Talladega SuperSpeedway, 87.5 percent of the field had been impacted by crash damage.

This was one of the most chaotic races at Talladega fantasy owners have seen in quite some while. Winning one’s league this week required a lot of luck.

Michael Annett finished 13th in his first restrictor-plate, superspeedway attempt in the No. 46, but it has been downhill since. He finished 13th in last year’s Daytona 500 in this car. He has failed to crack the top 25 in his latest four attempts for HScott Motorsports and failed to qualify once.

Annett’s failure to qualify came last fall at Talladega, but even when he made the show earlier in May, he finished only 29th.
Apr 25 - 6:28 PM

Michael Annett crashed on his first lap in the first practice session for the Toyota Owners 400 at Richmond International Raceway.

Notably, Annett failed to finish last fall after crashing on lap 145 or the 400-lapper. His best result previous to that was a pair of 33rd-place results in the last two spring editions of this race.

Michael Annett has been better in the spring than during the fall at Bristol Motor Speedway during his career. In two seasons, he finished 26th and 23rd in the daytime race, but he’s failed to go the distance in the last two Irwin Tools Night Races.

Last spring, Annett experienced crash damage twice during the Food City 500 and lost four laps, but the overall attrition was enough to allow him to earn his career-best finish.
Apr 13 - 12:04 AM

Michael Annett has recorded only the 36th-best average finish among 40 drivers with more than one start in 2016. That is reinforced by his 34th-best average running position.

Not much, but a little more was expected of this team in their second full season together. Annett has performed reasonably well on two occasions with lead lap finishes at Daytona International Speedway and Auto Club Speedway.

David Ragan has spent only 38.5 percent of his time on the lead lap, according the NASCAR Statistical Services. In the 1,315 laps run, he has been with the leader for only 506 circuits.

Ragan has the experience to run better, but the team is not quite up to snuff. The only drivers he has outperformed in this category at Josh Wise (with 7.9%), Chris Buescher (19.6%), and Cole Whitt (22.8). Michael Annett rounds out the bottom five with 39.2 percent.
