Darlington Raceway Mahindra ROXOR 200 (147 laps / 200.1 miles) Saturday, May 7, 2022 TV: 1:30 p.m. ET on FS1 / Radio: 1 p.m. ET on MRN and Sirius XM Ch. 90


No. 1 Accelerate Pros Throwback Chevrolet

  • Sam Mayer heads to Darlington Raceway this weekend after finishing in the top five in four of the last five NASCAR Xfinity Series races this season.

  • Mayer led 18 laps last weekend at Dover Motor Speedway en route to his third fifth-place finish of the 2022 season.

  • Chief team engineer Andrew Overstreet will sub for crew chief Taylor Moyer who will serve the first of his four-race suspension this weekend after a wheel feel off the No. 1 car at Dover last weekend.

  • The 18-year-old Franklin, Wis. native led the NXS in green flag passes (51) and quality passes (24) last weekend in Dover. Mayer leads the overall statistics for being the fastest on restarts this season with a ranking of 11.5.

From Sam:

"It’s going to be different this weekend without Taylor (Moyer, crew chief) in my ear but he’s done a great job of making sure this team is ready. As tough as it’s going to be, he’s surrounded himself with the right people that are capable of leading this No. 1 Accelerate Pros team to victory. Hopefully we can make Rick Mast proud and put this car where it belongs.”
