• Sam Mayer became the first driver to clinch a spot in the Championship 4 with last weekend’s win at Homestead-Miami Speedway.
• The young driver has won four times this season, including two of the last three races. His average finish in those events is 2.3.
• Mayer has four NASCAR Xfinity Series starts at the .526mile short track of Martinsville, scoring two top-five and three top-10 efforts.
• In 14 starts on tracks measuring 1 mile and under, Mayer has five top-fives and eight top-10 finishes, with his best of third coming at Richmond in the spring of 2022.
“It feels really good to be able to head into Martinsville knowing we are already locked into the Championship 4, but that does not stop the hard work. I really enjoy Martinsville and short tracks in general, so I am excited to get back there. We are going to buckle down and take the momentum we gained from the Homestead win to hopefully put ourselves in contention for another solid finish this weekend.”
