Dover Motor Speedway Preview A-Game 200 (200 laps / 200 miles) Saturday, April 30, 2022 1:30 p.m. ET on FS1
Sam Mayer is set to make his first start at the “Monster Mile” in the NASCAR Xfinity Series this weekend in the Accelerate Professional Talent Solutions Chevrolet.
Mayer has made two combined starts at the 1-mile concrete oval between the Truck Series and ARCA Series. He won the 2020 ARCA event there.
The 18-year-old Franklin, Wis. native has shown speed on concrete ovals in the NXS, as he led 49 laps and finished ninth at Bristol Motor Speedway last season.
The No. 1 team holds on to the top spot in NASCAR’s loop data statistics for being the fastest on restarts and currently sits third on overall green flag speed to date this season.
“Dover is one of just a couple of tracks that I haven’t been to yet in the Accelerate Professional Talent Solutions No. 1 car, but we have been putting in a lot of sim time to make sure I am ready for this weekend. I ran the Truck and ARCA car here back in 2020 and won the ARCA race so that gives me a little extra confidence heading into a pretty difficult track. I know restarts are going to be tricky, so if we can stay clean we may be contending for the win at the end of the day.”
