2014 Martinsville: Michael Annett NASCAR Sprint Cup Race Preview

Michael Annett and the No. 7 Pilot Flying J Chevrolet SS race team for Tommy Baldwin Racing head to Martinsville Speedway in Martinsville, Va. this weekend, looking to continue a trend that has emerged in the first five races of the 2014 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series season.

Annett is coming off of a weekend in which he scored a career-best 19th-place finish at Auto Club Speedway after gaining 10 positions in the final 30 laps, recovering from a late-race pit stop penalty. It continues a trend of finish improvement - he earned results of 37th, 34th, 29th, 26th and 19th - dating back to Daytona.

A Rookie of the Year candidate in the Cup Series, Annett is making his first ever start at Martinsville Speedway. He tested at the 0.526-mile last week in advance of this weekend's race.

Kevin "Bono" Manion, Annett's crew chief, oversaw cars driven by Jamie McMurray that scored a pole in 2011 and earned consecutive top-10 finishes in the two 2013 races.

The race airs live Sunday, March 30 at 1:15 pm Eastern on FOX.


"Our test at Martinsville last week went really well. Since the Nationwide Series doesn't race there, we used the track time just like we'll use our practices this weekend; as a learning opportunity. 500 laps there is a long time. It's a long race, and fortunately we've been really good at adjusting to the race. If we can get better as the race goes on, we'll be in really good shape."
