Michael Annett will return to the Nationwide Series this Saturday in the HISTORY 300 at Charlotte Motor Speedway.

The Richard Petty Motorsports driver will again pilot the No. 43 Ford after a three-month absence.  He was medically cleared Tuesday, having recovered from a broken and dislocated sternum suffered in an accident during the season-opening DRIVE4C.O.P.D. 300 at Daytona International Speedway on Feb. 23.

"It's been a long three months," Annett said.  "The accident at Daytona was disappointing.  I'm grateful for the amount of support I had from the team, NASCAR, family, friends and fans - not to mention the outstanding medical team that helped me through all of this.  While it was hard to be on the sidelines, I realize it was even more important to heal properly."

Annett's doctors and NASCAR officials determined he was fit for a return to competition following an MRI earlier this week.

Aric Almirola and Reed Sorenson have filled in behind the wheel for Annett during his absence.  The No. 43 car is presently tied for 15th in the owner standings with a best finish of ninth (by Almirola) on March 2 at Phoenix International Raceway.
