Michael Annett Running Gatorade Throwback at Darlington

Throwback Weekend at Darlington Raceway is looming around the corner, and Michael Annett is the latest Xfinity Series driver to unveil a fresh paint scheme.

Annett, whose primary sponsor is Pilot Flying J, will run a 1979 Gatorade paint scheme, honoring Darrell Waltrip. That year, Waltrip won seven races and finished second in the championship standings to Richard Petty.

Through eight races in the 2021 Xfinity season, Annett has a trio of top-10 efforts, sitting 14th in points. In nine starts at Darlington, he has a pair of top-10 finishes, with a best finish of eighth, last September.
