Michael Annett gets ready for ASA Late Model Series race at San Antonio Speedway


San Antonio, TX (February 7, 2007) – Michael Annett from the ASA Late Model Series (ASA LMS) Challenge Division took his first laps on the high banks at San Antonio Speedway in a practice session last week. Annett will be joining other ASA drivers from all over the county in the upcoming ASA Late Model Series Alamo 200 race at San Antonio Speedway on Saturday, March 3.


As a newcomer to the Alamo City and San Antonio Speedway, Annett faced some new challenges on the half-mile, asphalt oval track. He was pleased that his practice session went well.


“At first the track was really ‘green’ – due to some recent rains and because no one had been on the track since last October’s ASA race,” commented Annett. “After putting down some rubber and getting more familiar with the track, I really had a lot of fun. It’s a lot different from the other tracks I’ve been on – with its flat straight-aways and high-banked corners.”


This single, 20-year-old driver hails from Des Moines, Iowa, and dove headfirst into his racing debut with the ASA LMS in 2006. Annett racked up three top-five finishes last year, grabbing the runner-up position at the Motordrome Speedway (PA) on July 14, 2006, and again at the Columbus 151 Speedway (WI) on August 5, 2006. He also won his first career Fast Qualifier Award at the Columbus track.


Although Annett feels the practice session at San Antonio Speedway has helped him prepare for the March 3 race, he knows he’s up against some tough competition. “Eddie Hoffman and Charlie Menard are two top-notch competitors with the ASA,” said Annett. “They have a lot of talent, and they’ve been at the speedway before. I know they’ll both be tough to beat.”


Sponsors for Arnett’s black #12 Ford Fusion include TMC Transportation, Benson International, Pilot Travel Centers, Allstate Peterbilt Group and Northland Motor Oils.


In addition to the ASA LMS race, the schedule for March 3 includes the Texas Pro Sedans and the San Antonio Speedway Sportsman and Road Runner classes.


The grandstand gates will open at 4:00 p.m., and the racing action will begin at 7:00 p.m.


San Antonio Speedway is located at 14901 State Highway 16 South (towards Poteet), 3.5 miles outside of Loop 410.
