CORNELIUS, N.C. (AP) - Michael Annett has signed a deal to drive for Tommy Baldwin Racing in the NASCAR Sprint Cup series next season.
Annett, who has spent the last five years in the Nationwide series, will compete in the No. 7 car previously driven by Dave Blaney.
Annett, a native of Des Moines, Iowa, will run his 163rd Nationwide race this weekend in the season finale at Homestead-Miami Speedway. Annett was fifth in the 2012 standings, but he's just 15th this season after missing three months with a fractured and dislocated sternum.
Tommy Baldwin will stay on as the crew chief for the No. 7 car, which will use engines from Richard Childress Racing.
Baldwin and Annett have worked together in the ARCA and the NASCAR Truck series.
