Mayer Stuns At Bristol, Earns Breakthough Truck Win

BRISTOL, Tenn. – On a night when all the talk was about the 10 NASCAR Gander RV & Outdoors Truck Series playoff contenders, 17-year-old Sam Mayer flipped the script upside down. Four laps after the restart, Mayer made his move for the win. With a textbook bump to the left-rear corner of Moffitt’s truck, Mayer moved his teammate up the race track, got alongside and completed the pass entering turn one on the 171st lap. Thursday night’s win was the seventh of the season for GMS Racing, but it was one that still surprised Mayer, given how fresh the teenager is in the NASCAR Gander RV & Outdoors Truck Series. Moffitt came home a distant second and said that Mayer’s fresher tires were the difference at the end. “Last year, (Mayer’s new tires) probably wouldn’t have been a problem with the tires we had then, but this year they were just wearing out more,” Moffitt explained.
