Nashville is Music to Michael Annett's Ears: The 24-year old racer has six previous starts on Nashville Superspeedway's 1.333 mile D-shaped oval including four NASCAR Nationwide Series races, one NASCAR Camping World Truck Series event and one ARCA Racing Series event. In his two most recent attempts at the Lebanon, Tennessee track, Annett has tallied 14th and ninth place finishes respectively. Previously securing starting spots of third (August 2007), fifth (August 2008), 13th (April 2009) and 12th (April 2010), Annett proves to be a quick qualifier at Nashville.
Crew Chief Jason Overstreet Former Nashville Victor: Calling the shots for driver David Reutimann in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series, crew chief of Rusty Wallace Racing's No. 62 entry, Jason Overstreet, visited victory lane at Nashville Superspeedway in 2005 with Darrell Waltrip Racing. As driver and crew chief from 2004-2006, the Reutimann-Overstreet duo earned six pole awards and finished third in Truck Series championship point standings in 2006.
