JR MOTORSPORTS TEAM PREVIEW
Thursday, Feb. 24, 2022
TRACK – Auto Club Speedway (2-mile D-shaped oval in Fontana, Calif.) NXS RACE – Production Alliance Group 300 (150 laps / 300 miles)
Sam Mayer will make his first NASCAR Xfinity Series start at Auto Club Speedway this weekend.
In one start on a track measuring 2 miles in length (Michigan International Speedway), Mayer ran inside the top 10 until a mechanical problem prematurely ended his day toward the end of Stage One.
Mayer currently sits 23rd in the NXS point standings, 35 points behind the leader and 12 points behind the playoff cutline, after an eventful weekend at Daytona International Speedway.
Sam Mayer, driver No. 1 Accelerate Professional Talent Solutions Chevrolet team
"This is my first time at Auto Club but I have been watching a lot of film on the track from the past races to see how it races. The worn out surface and the way the track has multiple grooves should give us a great race. I’m ready to get there in our Accelerate Professional Talent Solutions Chevrolet and see what we have when we unload. This is one track our team has circled with how much preparation we have put in at the sim the last few weeks."
