Sam Mayer returns for his second full-time season piloting the No. 1 Chevrolet for JRM with Accelerate Professional Talent Solutions riding along with him.
The 19-year-old made a bold statement in the 2022 NASCAR Xfinity Series season with 11 top fives, 19 top 10s and earned his first career pole at Charlotte Motor Speedway in the spring.
The last time Mayer visited a superspeedway, Talladega last season, the Franklin, Wis. native finished second in a mad dash to the line against AJ Allmendinger.
Mayer will have a new crew chief for 2023 as Mardy Lindley will call the shots atop the No. 1 pit box.
“I can’t wait to get down to Daytona and get the 2023 season started with this No. 1 team. We had an awesome season last year and I really learned a ton in my first full- time season. We have Accelerate Professional Talent Solutions back on the car in Daytona and I am hoping to bring them to Victory Lane in the season opener. Coming off a strong second-place finish at Talladega last year, I am ready to do the same at Daytona.“
