Michael Annett Retiring from Full Time Competition Following 2021 Season

With a racing career spanning 16 years and over 90,000 laps turned, Michael Annett announced today his retirement from full-time driving duties at the conclusion of the 2021 NASCAR Xfinity Series season.

“I’m just so grateful for the opportunities I’ve had,” the 35-year-old Annett said. “Being able to drive racecars for a living is honestly a dream come true for me. It’s been a privilege to work with some great teams and alongside some of the most talented folks in the garage. None of this would have been possible without the support of my partners, and I am happy to call them life-long friends. It’s those relationships and friendships that are the most rewarding.”

Annett, a native of Des Moines, Iowa, has been a staple in NASCAR with the familiar colors of Pilot Flying J, TMC Transportation, Allstate Peterbilt Group, WEX EFS and others sponsoring his entries over the years. He competed in his first full-time season in 2009 and has made more than 430 starts across NASCAR’s top three series.
