Michael Annett Top RWR Finisher at Road America with Seventh Place Finish
Des Moines, Iowa's Michael Annett and the No. 62 Pilot Flying J team scored a seventh place finish on Road America's 4.048 mile road course on Saturday, earning their second top-10 finish of the year. Just two days after his 25th birthday, Midwest native Annett's seventh place finish was his best of the 2011 season.
"I definitely don't consider myself a road course racer, but pit strategy and steering clear of trouble on the track brought us to another well-deserved top-10 finish," said Annett, "My crew chief, Rick Viers, made some great calls, and working our way around the mayhem during the three attempts at a green, white, checkered there at the end was to our benefit."
The highest finisher of the three-car Rusty Wallace Racing team, Annett tallied the organization's fifth top-10 in 2011 this weekend at Road America.
"We've got a great group of guys assembled for our No. 62 team, and their hard work really paid off this weekend. We made smart moves throughout the race, and bringing home a car with no damage and a seventh place finish is pretty awesome. I'm excited to give Pilot Flying J and Rusty Wallace Racing another top-10," said Annett.
Annett remains 10th in the Nationwide Series championship point standings heading into next week's race at Daytona International Speedway.
