By virtue of last week’s ninth-place finish, Sam Mayer has clinched a playoff berth heading into the last race of the regular season at Bristol Motor Speedway.
Mayer will make his second start at “The Last Great Colosseum.” In this race last season, Mayer led 49 laps before finishing ninth.
Bristol is a great track for the 19-year-old Franklin, Wis. native as he won the ARCA Menards Series race and Truck Series race in the same night during the 2020 season.
In three career starts at half-mile tracks in the NASCAR Xfinity Series, Mayer has tallied two top fives, three top 10s, and an average finish of 6.0.
"Bristol is one of my best tracks and the one I have had the most success at in the past. This team gave me a really great car last year, and it showed with us racing up front and leading laps. I know this Huck’s Market team is working really hard to bring that same speed this weekend and hopefully we can end the regular season on the right foot and build some momentum for the first round of the playoffs.”
