Sam Mayer returns to Martinsville Speedway this weekend to make his fourth start at the 0.526-mile short track.
The Franklin, Wis. native has a best finish of fourth at Martinsville in 2021 after falling three laps down due to damage. The then-18-year-old made up those three laps and fought back to the fourth-place finish.
Following that fourth-place effort came respective fifth- and sixth-place finishes in the 2022 events at Martinsville during his first full-time season.
After finishing 17th at Richmond Raceway, Mayer currently sits eighth in the NXS point standings, 69 markers behind the leader.
“I’m really looking forward to getting to Martinsville this weekend. It’s a track I have run really well at in the past and I know this weekend will be more of the same with this Accelerate Professional Talent Solutions team. Mardy (Lindley, crew chief) and this entire team have been preparing through the off week to make sure we are ready when we unload on Friday. There’s no better time to get our first win than this weekend.”
