DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) - Michael Annett has always cherished racing at his hometown track in Des Moines, Iowa.
Annett's latest trip to Iowa Speedway will mark a major milestone in his comeback from a gruesome injury.
When the NASCAR Nationwide series runs in Iowa on Saturday night, the 26-year-old Annett will race for just the third time since fracturing and dislocating his sternum in February.
The opportunity to race just 35 miles west of his hometown is special to Annett. He also finished fourth at Newton last August, giving him confidence as he seeks his first series win.
