Adapting to a more aggressive strategy isn’t as simple as it might sound.

Last week at Dover, Annett took two tires near the end of the race instead of staying out and pushing for a higher finish. It was a natural call for Annett and his crew chief, Philippe Lopez, but Annett said they don’t plan to play it so safe the rest of the season.

“Not racing for points, there are a lot of chances I can take on the track that I probably wouldn’t (before),” Annett said. “I guarantee you, with (Iowa) being my home track, we’ll be big-time gamblers this weekend.”
