  • 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.

Sayeth Sam...

“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.”
