With one race remaining in the Round of 12, Sam Mayer currently sits seventh in the playoff grid, 12 points above the eighth and final spot to advance into the Round of 8.
Mayer earned his career-best Xfinity Series effort of second last week at Talladega Superspeedway, finishing a mere .015 behind the race winner.
Mayer has finished inside of the top 10 in four consecutive NASCAR Xfinity Series races dating back to Kansas Speedway. Throughout the run, Mayer’s average finish is 5.8.
The 19-year-old Franklin, Wis. native was fast at the Charlotte Roval last season. He was running second on the white-flag lap before finishing in the 10th position.
"We had a really fast car last season at the Roval and we were almost able to come out with a victory. With more experience in these cars this year and my experience at road courses, we should be in a good spot for this weekend. Missing out on our first win last week at Talladega has us even hungrier for that win and there isn’t a better time than this week.” – Sam Mayer
