Sam Mayer heads to Phoenix Raceway with a chance to finish inside of the top eight in the drivers standings in his first full- time season in the NASCAR Xfinity Series.
Mayer came on strong late in the season, finishing inside the top 10 in seven of the last 10 races.
The 19-year-old performed admirably through the NXS Playoffs with only one finish outside the top 10 and an average finish of 6.5.
In five starts on tracks measuring 1-mile in length in the NXS, Mayer has one top five and two top 10s, with a best finish of fifth coming at Dover Motor Speedway earlier this year.
“Unfortunately things didn’t go our way last weekend and we aren’t able to race for a championship, but we can go out there and try some things to get ready for next year. Our goal now is to just go out and win the race to end the season strong. Good luck to our JRM teammates. Hopefully one of them can bring the championship trophy back to the team.”
