Report: Michael Annett leaves Tommy Baldwin Racing, headed to HScott Motorsports


According to a report by respected NASCAR broadcaster Dave Moody, Michael Annett has left Tommy Baldwin Racing and will become a second driver for the fledgling HScott Motorsports team on the Sprint Cup Series in 2015.

Citing “multiple sources,” Moody stated in his “Godfather’s Blog” that Annett will also take his Pilot/Flying J sponsorship with him to his new home.

Annett is expected to race the full 36-race Sprint Cup schedule with teammate Justin Allgaier on the former Phoenix Racing team, Moody noted.

Annett had a rough rookie season in 2014, finishing 33rd in the season standings while behind the wheel of Baldwin’s No. 7 Chevrolet. His best finish was in the spring race at Talladega, where he wound up 16th.

Moody said Annett and a team spokesman both declined comment on the report.
