Heated Competition Continues as No. 15 Pilot Flying J Coffee Toyota Vies at Phoenix International Raceway
Posted by: lori on Nov 11, 2010
Avondale, Ariz. (November 11, 2010) – With 33 action-packed races completed, only two races remain in the 2010 NASCAR Nationwide Series season. This week, second year Nationwide Series driver Michael Annett and the No. 15 Germain Racing team are making the trek to the Valley of the Sun for Phoenix International Raceway’s WYPALL 200 powered by Kimberly-Clark Professional, the second race of the season hosted at the sunny, one mile tri-oval.
Annett will veer from a string of races at mile and a half tracks to short track racing this weekend at Phoenix. The series last visited a short track in September for Dover International Speedway’s Dover 200 where Annett secured an 11th place qualifying effort and brought home a 15th place finish on the one mile oval. His best result on a short track this season was at his home track, Iowa Speedway, where he scored a seventh place finish after starting 12th.
Behind the wheel of the No. 15 Pilot Flying J Coffee Toyota Camry, Annett will once again be promoting Pilot Flying J’s “Best Coffee on the Interstate.” The coffee themed Camry was also featured in races at Kansas Speedway, Auto Club Speedway, Gateway International Raceway and Texas Motor Speedway. The Pilot Flying J Coffee program has allowed the company to further awareness of their popular coffee brand through the car’s special paint scheme, as well as through at-track sampling of their product at various tracks during the months of October and November.
On-track activity for the Nationwide Series at Phoenix International Raceway heats up with practice on Friday from 12-1:50 p.m. followed by final practice from 3:40-4:20 p.m. Saturday steams up with qualifying at 12:05 p.m. before the WYPALL 200 powered by Kimberly-Clark Professional begins at 4:30 p.m. Practice, final practice and qualifying can be seen live on SPEED. Live race coverage starts at 4 p.m. on Saturday on ESPN 2 and MRN Radio. All times are ET.
