  • Sam Mayer returns to Long Pond, Pa. for his third career start at Pocono Raceway, the site of his first start in the NASCAR Xfinity series in 2021.

  • In 15 starts on tracks measuring over 2 miles in length in the NXS, the young driver has notched two top-five and four top-10 finishes.​​

  • The Franklin, Wis. native was on the rise to a solid top-five finish last week at New Hampshire Motor Speedway until a multi-car incident in the closing laps relegated him to an 18th-place effort.

  • The 20-year-old Mayer currently sits ninth in the championship standings, 63 points above the playoff cutline.

From Sam:

“Pocono is a fun track and I am looking forward to getting more laps there to really improve from my first two starts. I am confident that we can turn our luck around this weekend and hopefully get this No. 1 Accelerate Professional Talent Solutions Chevrolet up front to contend for the win.
