Sam Mayer to return to JRM in 2024

MOORESVILLE, N.C. — Sam Mayer will return to race the No. 1 JR Motorsports Chevrolet full-time in the 2024 NASCAR Xfinity Series season.

JRM announced the move Tuesday morning. This puts Mayer back with the organization for his third full-time year in the Xfinity Series.

The Wisconsin driver went winless last year but made the playoffs. Then, last month, Mayer won his first Xfinity Series race at Road America and reeled off another win at Watkins Glen.

“We’ve seen so much potential in Sam. We’re proud of all he’s accomplished this year,” said Kelley Earnhardt-Miller, CEO of JRM. “The victory at Road America was huge for him and his family. Getting things solidified for next year will allow him to focus on the remainder of 2023 as he competes for the championship.”

“Finally getting that first win was like a weight lifted and was so energizing. I’m thankful to Dale Jr., Kelley and Mr. Hendrick for making it happen. Now we can turn our attention to a championship run this year,” Mayer said.

Sam Mayer is beginning this year’s playoffs in the No. 5 seed, heading to the playoff opener at Bristol. In 2020, he earned his first NASCAR win there in a Craftsman Truck Series race.

JRM will announce crew chief and sponsorship for Mayer and his team at a later date.
