Notes:

– Mayer claimed his first win in the NASCAR K&N East Series in March at Bristol Motor Speedway. He won the pole and led all 150 laps en route to his first series win.

– He will be racing the same Chevrolet (chassis 406) he won with at Bristol, was second and 11th in the double-header races at South Boston and finished fourth in the season-opening race at New Smyrna Speedway in February.

– Mayer is currently second in the driver championship point standings, only four points out of first place.

– Crew chief Mardy Lindley won the K&N East race at Memphis in 2017 in his only start there.

Quote:

“I’m excited to go to Memphis for the first time. I’ve been watching videos of past races and it looks really fun. There is a lot of room to race. Mardy (Lindley, crew chief) and I have had a really solid season so far, and I hope we can keep it going.”
