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.
"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.”
