  • In one start at the 1-mile facility of Phoenix Raceway, Mayer raced his way to a 13th-place finish in the 2021 season finale.

  • 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 laps.

  • At tracks measuring 1-2 miles in length, Mayer has two top- 10 finishes and has led 25 laps in total in NXS competition.

Sam Mayer, driver No. 1 Accelerate Professional Talent Solutions Chevrolet team

"Phoenix is not one of my stronger tracks but we have been putting a lot of effort in to make sure we are ready when we arrive. Having a little bit of practice is definitely going to help me warm up to the place and knowing that we have had strong cars capable of winning adds a little bit of confidence. Hopefully this Accelerate Professional Talent Solutions Chevrolet will be battling for the win Saturday."
