Bristol, Tenn. (March 17, 2010) -- With two weeks free of competition in between the last NASCAR Nationwide Series race and this weekend's Scott's Turf Builder 300, Germain Racing's Michael Annett and the No. 15 Pilot Travel Centers team will venture where the Tennessee and Virginia state lines meet at Bristol Motor Speedway for the fourth NASCAR Nationwide Series race of the 2010 season. Returning to a track where in 2009 they scored a top-10 finish in their most recent run there, the No. 15 Germain Racing team heads to the "World's Fastest Half Mile" with confidence that their hard work will pay off again.

"Bristol is loud, fast and anything can happen very quickly," said crew chief Ryan Fugle, "We finished eighth at Bristol in August, and we're bringing that same car with a new body to the track with us this weekend. We had a great performance last time we were there, and hope to get another good run there this weekend, especially with it being the home track of our sponsor, Pilot Travel Centers."

Annett's eighth place finish at Bristol Motor Speedway in August earned him the Raybestos Rookie of the Race award, one of five top finishing rookie awards he took home last season.

"With Bristol being the home track for Pilot Travel Centers, racing there and doing well there means a great deal to all of us involved. We were really happy with our last run at Bristol, and hope we can continue our success there this weekend," said Annett, "I'm looking forward to having the support of the Pilot Travel Centers group from their headquarters in Knoxville, Tenn. at the track on Saturday. It's been a fun journey partnering with them throughout the past four years of my racing career, and I look forward to our future."

Race fans will get the opportunity to meet Annett Friday night at Bristol Motor Speedway for Food City's Race Night. Annett, along with several of his NASCAR competitors, will be signing autographs from 6 p.m. until 8 p.m. on Friday.
