• Sam Mayer heads to Bristol Motor Speedway this weekend for the opening race of the NASCAR Xfinity Series Playoffs as the fifth seed, 34 points behind the series leader. ​

• The young driver is no stranger to wins at Bristol as he claimed two checkered flags in 2020 on the same night after winning both the Craftsman Truck Series and the ARCA Menards Series races.

• Crew chief Mardy Lindley was atop the pit box for the Franklin, Wis. native when he scored his ARCA win.

Sam Mayer

“Super tough break for us last week but we are ready to get to Bristol for the first race of the playoffs and fight hard for the win. Bristol has been really good to me in the past and it is one of my better tracks, so I am hopeful that we can capitalize on all we have been through the past few weeks and get this No. 1 Huck’s Market Chevrolet in contention for a good finish this weekend.”
