-He will be racing a new chassis this weekend at New Hampshire, chassis 407. Mayer did run this car at a tire test in Dover earlier this year, but not in competition.

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

Quote:

“I ran both the K&N races at New Hampshire last year, but based off those races I have some work to do to get better. Mardy (Lindley, crew chief) is bringing an even better Chevy Accessories Chevrolet, so if I can figure it out we definitely have a shot to win.”
