• Sam Mayer will make his first NXS start at Kansas Speedway this weekend in the QPS Employment Group Chevrolet.
• Mayer brought home his best 1.5-mile finish in his first start on an intermediate track. The 18-year-old finished ninth at Atlanta to earn his first NXS career top-10 effort in only his third start. • To date, Mayer has tallied four top-10 finishes and has led a total of 57 laps with his most recent top 10 coming at the Charlotte Roval.
• Throughout the 2021 season, the No. 8 team has posted one win (Martinsville Speedway), four top fives and 11 top 10s.
“We ran towards the front for a lot of the race last weekend in Texas and hopefully we can do more of the same in Kansas. There are more grooves to use in Kansas which will lend itself to make more passes. It’s another new track for me so the quicker I can learn the better we will be towards the end of the race. Hopefully this QPS Employment Group Chevrolet can be in contention for the win.” – Sam Mayer
