  • Sam Mayer will make his sixth start on a road course in the NASCAR Xfinity Series this weekend at Portland International Raceway. Mayer’s best finish of fifth on a road course came earlier this year at Circuit of the Americas.

  • Mayer’s third-place finish last week at Charlotte Motor Speedway has extended the 18-year-old’s streak of top-five finishes to four in a row, dating back to Dover Motor Speedway.

  • In Mayer’s last eight starts in the NXS, he has finished in the top five seven times and holds an average finish of 7.1 in those starts.

Sam speaks:

"We’ve been putting together some really strong runs the last couple months and hopefully we can continue that this weekend in Portland. I really enjoy road course racing and have a lot of experience at these style of tracks with the TA2 car I ran for a few years, so hopefully I can use what I have learned and try to snag the first win for this Accelerate Professional Talent Solutions team.”
