• Sam Mayer will battle for his first NASCAR Xfinity Serieschampionship at Phoenix Raceway this Saturday. Mayer became the first of the four Championship 4 drivers to punch his ticket into the finale withhis win at Homestead-Miami Speedway.
• Being in the championship hunt is familiar territory for Mayer and crew chief Mardy Lindley. The duo has combined for a pair of championships in the K&N Pro Series East (2019) and ARCA Menards Series (2020).
• In 16 starts on tracks measuring one mile and under, Mayer has raced his way to five top-five and eight top-10 finishes in his NXS career.
“Locking myself into the Championship 4 at Homestead was a dream come true but now that Phoenix is really here, it feels surreal. I am so proud of all the hard work this No. 1 JR Motorsports team has put in this year to get us this far, and I cannot say thank you enough to everyone at the shop who has helped make this possible. I am ready to set my focus forward and I am hopeful that we can bring JRM home a championship this weekend in Phoenix!”
