Sam Mayer will carry new colors at Daytona International Speedway as Accelerate Professional Talent Solutions joins the No. 1 team in 2022.
The 18-year-old Mayer had a strong outing in his first race at Daytona last August, as he was able to lead his first lap in the NASCAR Xfinity Series en route to a 12th-place finish.
In 18 NXS starts during the 2021 rookie season for Mayer, the Franklin, Wis. native tallied one top five, six top 10s and led a total of 57 laps.
2022 will be Mayer’s first full-time season in the NXS and the first time crew chief Taylor Moyer has competed with only one driver in the seat.
Quotes “I’m so ready to be down in Daytona with this Accelerated Professional Talent Solutions team. We had a strong run going last year and I was able to lead my first lap in the Xfinity Series. I know this No. 1 team built a fast racecar for this weekend and our goal is to put it in Victory Lane.”
