Michael Annett graduates to the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series in 2014 with Tommy Baldwin Racing following a season cut short by injury. Annett suffered a fractured sternum in the NASCAR Nationwide Series season-opening DRIVE4COPD 300 at Daytona International Speedway. As a result, Annett returned Memorial Day weekend at Charlotte Motor Speedway. Although he missed eight races, he still finished 15th in the final points standings driving the No. 43 Ford Mustang for Richard Petty Motorsports. Annett scored one top five and four top 10s.

In 2012, Annett ran the entire 33-race schedule for RPM, collecting six top fives, 17 top 10s and completed 99.6 percent of all laps run resulting in a ranking of fifth. It turned out to be his best year in five full seasons in the series. In 2011, he ran for NASCAR Hall of Famer Rusty Wallace accumulating seven top-10 results. Annett was runner-up to Justin Allgaier in the 2009 NASCAR Nationwide Series Sunoco Rookie of the Year race in a year he had four top 10s and finished 10th overall.

In 2008, Annett started eight races in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series finishing second to series champion Johnny Benson at Kentucky Speedway. Driving for Bill Davis in the ARCA RE/MAX Series, Annett showed his restrictor-plate acumen with victories at Daytona in 2008 and Talladega Superspeedway in 2007. Annett earlier competed in the ASA Series, the same Midwest late model tour that polished the early careers of Wallace and Mark Martin.
