Sam Mayer, driver No. 1 Accelerate Professional Talent Solutions Chevrolet team
"Atlanta is going to be a lot different this year with the reconfiguration and the package that we are running, but I am definitely looking forward to it. Taylor (Moyer, crew chief) and this entire Accelerate Professional Talent Solutions team built a great car for this track last season and we always have great speedway cars, so I know we will be fast when we unload Friday and hopefully we can be up front on Saturday and build a little momentum.”
