HScott Motorsports is on the upswing for 2015.

After announcing partnerships with Justin Marks and Chip Ganassi in the NASCAR K&N Pro Series and NASCAR XFINITY Series late in 2014, team owner Harry Scott announced during the Charlotte Motor Speedway NASCAR Media Tour that Michael Annett will join the squad as a teammate to Justin Allgaier for the 2015 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series (NSCS) season.

Annett will drive a Chevrolet adorned by longtime anchor partner Pilot Flying J.

“The addition of a second team increases HScott’s overall ability to better utilize its resources at track and at the shop to be even more competitive,” said team owner Harry Scott Jr.  “I’m proud to have seen Justin truly mature as a NSCS driver last year, and I can’t wait to see what he does this year. Like Justin, Michael is coming off his rookie year following six years of competition in the NASCAR Xfinity Series. Michael is a quality driver with a great future at HScott Motorsports. These drivers compliment one another and will make great teammates.”

Annett competed in all 36 points races during his 2014 rookie NSCS campaign and posted several top-20 finishes, including 19th at Fontana, 16th at Talladega and 18th at Kentucky.

From 2008 through 2013, Annett competed full time in the NASCAR Xfinity Series, where he started 163 races and earned seven top-five and 34 top-10 finishes.  Prior to his NASCAR career, Annett competed in the ARCA Racing Series in 2007 and 2008, winning races at Talladega and Daytona.

“I’m excited for the opportunity to drive for HScott Motorsports,” said Annett.  “I am impressed with the way Harry is building his NASCAR teams.  Harry and competition director Steve Addington have a long-term vision and I’m honored to be part of it. I’m also looking forward to having Justin as a teammate.”

Pilot Flying J, the largest operator of travel retail centers, will be a primary partner on Annett’s car.  Other partners include Cypress Associates, Inc., Allstate Peterbilt Group and Northland Oil.
