– Mayer will make his first ARCA Racing Series start Sunday at Salem Speedway, but he did test there with his GMS Racing team in March.

– The GMS team will bring chassis 408 to Salem. This is the same car he raced at Pensacola and finished 15th after a mechanical issue ended his night early.

– Mayer won his first career NASCAR K&N Pro Series East race last weekend at Bristol Motor Speedway. He won in dominating fashion after starting from the pole and leading all 150 laps of the race.

– This will be the second of seven ARCA races Mayer is scheduled to compete in this season.


“I’m really excited going into Salem with my first K&N win under my belt. When we tested there a few weeks ago, we showed pretty good speed and I think we will be very competitive. The track is really fun and challenging, and I can’t wait to go race there on Sunday!”
