Sam Mayer returns to Atlanta Motor Speedway for his fourth NASCAR Xfinity Series start at the 1.54-mile quadoval. In three previous starts, Mayer has a best finish of ninth coming in 2021.
With 14 starts at tracks measuring 1.5 miles in length, Mayer has recorded three top-five and nine top-10 finishes, including his most recent seventh-place effort at Las Vegas this season.
Crew chief Mardy Lindley has an average finish of 1.0 at Atlanta after scoring NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series wins in appearances with Kyle Busch (2021) and Corey Heim (2022).
“I am excited to get back to Atlanta, coming off of the consistent streak we are having. The No. 1 Accelerate Professional Talent Solutions team has been building absolute rocket ships and I can’t thank this team enough for the hard work. Mardy (Lindley, crew chief) has two wins here, so I am looking forward to another good run this weekend.”
