– Mayer claimed his first win in the NASCAR K&N East Series last month 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 and finished fourth in the season-opening race at New Smyrna Speedway in February.

– With the Bristol win, Mayer took the lead in the championship point standings. He is three points ahead of second place.


“South Boston is a really fun place and I feel like me and Mardy (Lindley, crew chief) will have a great run if we keep our nose clean and stay out front. It’s a fast track which I enjoy, and hopefully we can get another win for GMS.”
