Young and vibrant talent Sam Mayer is set to extend his exciting run with JR Motorsports in the NASCAR Xfinity Series next season. The 20-year-old Mayer is not a newbie in the circuit, marking his second consecutive year as a full-time driver in the series. What’s even more commendable? Every one of his notable starts has been with the JR Motorsports banner, tracing back to a part-time schedule in 2021.

Despite facing a winless spell last year, Mayer has steered a dramatic turnaround in 2023. Showcasing his superior skills and racecraft, he clinched victories at the iconic tracks of Road America and Watkins Glen. With these wins in his pocket, Mayer confidently strides into the playoffs, standing as the promising fifth seed in the freshly reset championship standings.

The echelons of JR Motorsports are bubbling with excitement and pride over Mayer’s exceptional performance. Expressing her sentiments, JRM CEO Kelley Earnhardt Miller commented, “The potential we’ve discerned in Sam is monumental. His triumph at Road America wasn’t just a win for him but a monumental moment for his entire family. With his future with us secured for the next season, Sam can single-mindedly concentrate on the rest of 2023, targeting the championship.”

Mayer isn’t just limited to the Xfinity Series. He’s showcased his prowess in the Truck Series as well, notably winning at Bristol in 2020 with GMS Racing in what was merely his seventh career start. Mayer’s track record also boasts of a remarkable five ARCA race wins in 2020 and consecutive ARCA East championships in the two prior years.

Tracing his association with JR Motorsports, it dates back to 2018. Mayer began his journey with the team in the CARS Late Model Tour, marking a victory and finishing an impressive fifth in the year-end points table.

Speaking about this momentous year, Mayer shared, “This year has been nothing short of phenomenal for our No. 1 team. That inaugural win was both a relief and an energizing boost. My heart swells with gratitude as I think of continuing my journey with JR Motorsports. Immense thanks to Dale [Earnhardt] Jr., Kelley, and Mr. [Rick] Hendrick for turning this dream into reality. Our sights are now firmly set on the championship run this year.”
