Michael Annett reunites with Jason Stockert

Jan 29, 2017

Driver Michael Annett and crew chief Jason Stockert enter the 2017 NASCAR Xfinity Series as the newest pairing for JR Motorsports’ now four full-time teams.
While that is the case for the recently unveiled No. 5 Pilot Flying J Chevrolet Camaro, it’s not the first time they’ve teamed up. The two worked together back in 2011 at Rusty Wallace Inc., with Stockert serving as Annett’s engineer. After a subpar start to the year, Annett and Stockert hit their stride by mid-season, reeling off a seventh at Road America, sixth at Daytona in July and back-to-back seventh-place runs at Kentucky and New Hampshire. At the end of the season, Annett logged seven top-10 finishes on the way to a ninth-place finish in the points.
