The No. 15 Germain Racing Team Rolls into Las Vegas Looking to Hit the Jackpot

Las Vegas, Nev. (February 24, 2010) -- Michael Annett and the No. 15 Pilot Travel Centers team hope to play their cards right at Las Vegas Motor Speedway this weekend and bring home a top-10 finish in the NASCAR Nationwide Series Sam's Town 300.

"Las Vegas Motor Speedway is a really exciting track and it really fits Michael's driving style," commented crew chief Ryan Fugle, "The team has shown its strength in the last two races but we are really focused to close out this weekend with a shining performance. We're leaning on the strength of our intermediate track program and hope to leave Las Vegas with a top-10 finish."

"I'm looking forward to getting on track at Las Vegas Motor Speedway. Germain Racing's intermediate program is very strong. Historically we have shown we run well on these 1.5 mile tracks. Our No. 15 Pilot Travel Centers team is working really well together and we are looking to unload strong and finish well this weekend at Las Vegas," said Annett who currently sits 12th in NASCAR Nationwide Series point standings.

While most Las Vegas visitors gear up for gambling with their good luck charms close by their sides, Annett prepares for on-track performance with a few superstitious amulets of his own. The young driver believes his habit of putting everything on his left side first helps his chances at success. Annett always puts his left pant leg, sleeve, shoe, glove and ear mold in first for good luck, a ritual he learned from his father years ago. Annett also takes a symbol of good luck with him on the track, wearing a green four leaf clover on the back of all of his helmets.
