Broadcast Information: TV: 2:30 p.m. ET on USA / Radio: 2 p.m. ET on MRN and Sirius XM Ch. 90
Sam Mayer, a native of Franklin, Wis., heads to his home track of Road America as he makes his second start at the 4.048-mile road course.
Mayer continued his hot streak last week in Nashville as he has now finished in the top five in eight of the last 10 NASCAR Xfinity Series races dating back to COTA in March.
With last week’s top-five finish, Mayer has the second-most top fives (8) in the NXS, one shy of teammate Noah Gragson’s series-leading nine.
"It will be great to head home this week and see some family and friends I normally wouldn’t get to see. This race last year didn’t really go as planned but I know this Jockey team is going to unload a car on Friday that has a lot of speed and hopefully we can continue our streak of finishing towards the front.”
