From the Marbles

Michael Annett will miss Saturday's Nationwide Series race at Phoenix and will be out indefinitely after he was diagnosed with a fractured and dislocated sternum from a crash at Daytona International Speedway.

Annett was in an 11 car accident on lap 116 of the season-opening Nationwide Series race when his No. 43 got tagged and went head-on into the wall. After the accident, he was taken to Halifax Medical Center, where he was kept overnight for evaluation and further observation. According to a Richard Petty Motorsports release, Annett will immediately undergo surgery for the injury.

Aric Almirola, who drives RPM's No. 43 in the Sprint Cup Series, will drive Annett's car at Phoenix.
