Sam Mayer heads up the coast to the Finger Lakes for his third NASCAR Xfinity Series start at Watkins Glen International.
The Franklin, Wis. native is coming off a second-place finish at the Indianapolis Road Course after making a thrilling pass for the runner-up position with two laps remaining in the event.
In the six road courses races so far in the 2023 season, Mayer has landed one win, three top-five and five top-10 finishes. His win came at his home track of Road America and marked his first NXS victory.
“I am looking forward to getting back to Watkins Glen as we have had super good runs there in the past, pulling two top-10 finishes. Road courses have been fun for me this year and this No. 1 team has really set me up to be able to succeed. I am hopeful that we can go in with our heads held high this weekend and be able to contend for that second win.”
