2014 Kansas: Michael Annett NASCAR Sprint Cup Race Preview

Michael Annett and the No. 7 Accell Construction Chevrolet SS team travel to Kansas City this weekend for the 11th race on the 2014 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series schedule at the often-wild Kansas Speedway.

The 1.5-mile track saw 37 cautions across the three races since a 2012 repaving. Annett, as a driver in the NASCAR Nationwide Series, has finishes of eighth (in '12) and 12th (in 2013) to his credit on the current Kansas surface. The Cup Series rookie makes his first start there in a Cup car on Saturday night.

Kansas will provide a rare instance in which Annett has already driven on the track in a Cup Series racecar, as his team participated in a Goodyear tire test at the facility three weeks ago.

The TBR team at Kansas... The No. 7 Tommy Baldwin Racing team, with driver Dave Blaney, finished 25th in last fall's race at Kansas, while current crew chief Kevin Manion, overseeing cars for Jamie McMurray, has scored finishes of 15th, seventh and 16th in the three races on the track's current surface.

The race airs live on Saturday night, May 10 at 7:30 pm Eastern on FOX.


"Since they repaved Kansas, it's had close, hard racing. I think it will be that way on Saturday night. We were fortunate to take part in the tire test there a few weeks back, which helps me because that was extra time on the track in a Cup car, which I had never had before. I'm looking forward to getting back to Kansas for a strong run under the lights."
