Sam Mayer, Driver No. 8, TeamSLR

“We had a really good M1 Racecars Chevrolet Camaro this weekend. I had a lot of fun driving, too. We were top-three all weekend in practice, qualifying and the race. That means a lot, because if NASCAR comes here in the future, it’ll give me an advantage. I enjoyed battling for the lead throughout the race with the No. 58 (Franklin Futrelle). I probably would’ve had him if the cautions didn’t come out, but if I’m going to lose to someone, I’m glad it was him. He has over 6,000 laps around this place, so I was able to learn from him. I’m already looking forward to getting to California to run both the Sonoma and Laguna Seca races.”

Connor Mosack, Driver No. 28, TeamSLR

“Overall, it was a pretty good weekend. I’m happy to finish fourth in the Nic Tailor/IFS M1 Racecars Chevrolet Camaro. We started eighth, which was about where we were all weekend long, so the adjustments we made for the race allowed us to drive up through the field. We weren’t really fast enough to run with the top-three guys, but it was a good race. I’m looking forward getting out to Sonoma for the ProAm race, and then Laguna Seca after that. I’ve never been to either track, but each have a lot of history.”

Scott Lagasse Jr., Driver No. 92, TeamSLR

“I’m really proud of our group, TeamSLR/M1, and I’m especially excited for Sam and Connor who both excelled in their jobs all weekend long. We all take a lot of pride in the success of our drivers, as well as other M1 teams. The simple fact that a small but growing new team like Cliff White’s B2 Motorsports can win in Trans Am means we’re doing a good job supporting our teammates. That’s what this series is supposed to be. With the points setback from Sebring and the need to support my M1 teammates, I decided to focus on meeting their needs and offering help however I could. Our group is working extremely hard to develop new setups, which was my job this weekend. Our new car was pretty good, but just too loose with the new setup that we’ve been developing. We have a test coming up to complete the package. Proud to see three M1 Racecars in the top-four spots at the end of the race. I’m really pumped about Franklin and B2 Motorsports getting their first win in Trans Am.”
