NXS RACE – Alsco Uniforms 300 (200 laps / 300 miles)
Coming off a strong sixth-place finish in Fontana, Sam Mayer will make his second NASCAR Xfinity Series start at Las Vegas Motor Speedway this weekend.
In one start at the 1.5-mile facility in Las Vegas, Mayer raced his way to 11th before being swept up in a multi-car incident on lap 31.
In 18 NXS races during the second half of 2021, Mayer racked up one top five and six top 10s while leading the field for 57 circuits.
At tracks measuring 1.5 miles in length in the NXS, Mayer has a best finish of eighth, earned at Kansas Speedway last season.
Sam Mayer, driver No. 1 Accelerate Professional Talent Solutions Chevrolet team
"We had a really great run at Auto Club last weekend in the Accelerate Professional Talent Solutions Chevrolet. We had a car capable of running towards the front and that is what we did. We kept the car clean all race and came home with a sixth-place finish. We know that could have been betterbut we’re going to take this momentum and hopefully have a strong run in Vegas since we are using the same car as last weekend. I know Taylor (Moyer, crew chief) and this entire No. 1 team will be ready to contend for a win."
