Mayer had the fifth-best driver rating (110.2) at Circuit of the Americas last weekend, according to NASCAR’s loop data statistics. Mayer led the charge for JRM in that category.
Mayer currently sits ninth in the championship standings, 27 points above the cutline and 96 points off the leader.
Sam Mayer, driver No. 1 Accelerate Professional Talent Solutions Chevrolet team
“We had a really good run last week in COTA that qualified us for the Dash 4 Cash this weekend. I’m pumped to get to Richmond, it’s a great track for me and I know Taylor (Moyer, crew chief) and this entire Accelerate Professional Talent Solutions team will have this car ready to go. Hopefully we can come out of this weekend with a win, the $100k and another chance to race for the Dash 4 Cash.”
