• The 18-year-old Franklin, Wis. native is coming off a weekend where he scored his career best NXS finish of eighth. Mayer now has two top-10 finishes in his last three races.
“I’ve raced at Martinsville a couple times and it’s definitely a challenging track with it only having one dominant lane. I know this team will unload with a fast John 5 Sinner Chevrolet. The last time they were here this car was in Victory Lane so hopefully we can follow that up with another.” – Sam Mayer
