Michael Annett Pre-Race Notes and Quotes: Dover

MOORESVILLE, N.C. (September 17, 2014) – NASCAR Sprint Cup Series rookie Michael Annett will drive the No. 7 CypressHQ Chevrolet SS this weekend on the concrete mile surface at Dover International Speedway.

This will mark Annett’s second Cup Series start at the Delaware racetrack. In NASCAR Nationwide Series competition, Annett finished inside the top half of the field in all 10 of his Dover starts, which included a third-place finish in the fall 2012 event. He averaged a 13.5-place finish during that span.

Dover was also the site of the first win for Kevin “Bono” Manion, Annett’s crew chief at Tommy Baldwin Racing, coming in the 2007 spring race with driver Martin Truex.

The race will air live Sunday, September 28 at 2:15 p.m. Eastern on ESPN.


“Last time out at Dover, we were running in the top 20 when we broke a shock mount and that killed our day right then and there. We all feel that there’s unfinished business at Dover. ‘Bono’ has won there before, I was close to winning there in Nationwide and we had a really good car there in the spring. Hopefully this time we can put everything together and have a good day.”
