JR MOTORSPORTS TEAM PREVIEW: Atlanta Motor Speedway Alsco Uniforms 250 (163 laps / 251 miles) Saturday, July 9, 2022
TV: 5 p.m. ET on USA / Radio: 4:30 p.m. ET on PRN and Sirius XM Ch. 90
No. 1 Accelerate Professional Talent Solutions Chevrolet
Sam Mayer earned his first career top-10 finish in the NASCAR Xfinity Series during his first start at Atlanta Motor Speedway in July of 2021.
In 15 starts at tracks measuring between 1-2 miles in length in the NXS, Mayer has five top fives and seven top 10s, with a best finish of third at Charlotte Motor Speedway and Texas Motor Speedway earlier this season.
Mayer raced as high as third during the first event at the newly paved and configured Atlanta before finishing 21st after a cut tire took him out of contention.
With 10 races before the NXS Playoffs begin, Mayer currently sits 97 points above the playoff cutline.
“We had a really good run going earlier this year in Atlanta but a cut tire really cost us a good finish. We were able to get back on the lead lap but it was just too late at that point. This Accelerate Professional Talent Solutions team never gave up. I know we will have another fast Camaro this weekend, we just need a little luck to go our way.”
