JR MOTORSPORTS TEAM PREVIEW: Kansas Speedway Kansas Lottery 300 (200 laps / 300 miles) Saturday, Sept. 10, 2022
Broadcast Information: TV: 3 p.m. ET on USA / Radio: 2:30 p.m. ET on MRN and Sirius XM Ch. 90
Sam Mayer has one start and one top 10 at Kansas Speedway, coming in this race last season. Mayer started 12th and finished eighth.
The driver of the No. 1 currently sits ninth in the championship standings, 109 points above the playoff cutline with only two races remaining in the regular season.
In his last three starts at 1.5-mile tracks in the NASCAR Xfinity Series, Mayer has a pair of third-place finishes (Charlotte Motor Speedway and Texas Motor Speedway).
At tracks measuring 1.5 miles in the NXS, Mayer has tallied two top-five and four top-10 finishes in nine starts.
“I thought we had really good speed at Kansas last year, but with it being my first race there it was a little bit of a learning curve. With a lot more experience at these 1.5- mile tracks, I have a lot more confidence going into this weekend and I know this team is going to do what it takes to put this Huck's Market/Accelerate Chevrolet up front. It’s time to get some momentum on our side as we close in on the playoffs.”
