Des Moines native Michael Annett, the
Richard Petty Motorsports Nationwide Series driver, will be testing his #43 Ford
Mustang on Iowa Speedway's 7/8-mile tri-oval this Monday evening, May 27, from
5:00 to 11:00 pm.
Annett's first test at the Newton
facility since sustaining injuries in a February accident at Daytona will be
conducted under the lights, and is open to the public in a special ‘drive-in'
backstretch viewing area located west of the speedway administration building at
3333 Rusty Wallace Drive.
Annett will be among the more than 40
