• Sam Mayer will make his second NXS start on a road course this weekend in the No. 8 JR Motorsports Chevrolet. The 18-year-old’s only other start at a road course in the NXS came at his home track of Road America. Mayer started 23rd and finished 35th after being collected in a multi-car incident.
• Mayer will be pulling triple duty this weekend for the first time in 2021 as he is entered in both the ARCA Menards Series and Camping World Truck Series races.
• Throughout the 2021 season, the No. 8 team has earned one win, four top fives, eight top 10s and is currently 17th in owner point standings.
“The two off weeks were great for me to get refocused as we head into the last half of the season. The year hasn’t started off the way we planned, so it’s a good refresher for our team. I’m really confident heading into Watkins Glen as I have put a lot of focus on road-course racing. I’ll be racingARCA and Trucks before the Xfinity race, too, so I will get to learn the track before hopping into the No. 8 Saturday afternoon.”
