MOORESVILLE, N.C. (Jan 31, 2024) – Carolina Carports, an industry innovator in the manufacturing and installation of quality residential and commercial steel buildings, will join JR Motorsports as a primary partner for Sam Mayer and the No. 1 team in three NASCAR Xfinity Series events in 2024.

Mayer will drive the No. 1 Carolina Carports Chevrolet in the season opener at Daytona International Speedway (Feb. 17), Texas Motor Speedway (April 13) and Bristol Motor Speedway (Sept. 20). The brand will be featured as an associate partner in the remaining 30 races.

Headquartered in Dobson, N.C., Carolina Carports’ customer-first and quality-commitment approach has made them a leader in the steel-buildings industry. Family-owned and operated since 1997, Carolina Carports offers a wide selection of steel buildings, metal carports, garages and barns for personal or commercial use, all of which include American manufacturing, installation and customer support. The company’s footprint has expanded to seven divisions covering North Carolina, Georgia, Texas, Missouri, Mississippi, Pennsylvania and Indiana.


“Carolina Carports is a family business much like our own,” said JR Motorsports CEO Kelley Earnhardt Miller. “Meeting Adela (Herrera) and her team, it’s clear she has built her company on quality and excellence, and that makes Carolina Carports a great fit for Sam and the No. 1 team.”

Mayer, a 20-year-old native of Franklin, Wis, enters 2024 on the heels of a career-best season with four wins and a third-place finish in the NXS championship.

“Carolina Carports is pleased to announce our new partnership with the JRM team,” said Herrera, Carolina Carports owner and CEO. “With over 25 years leading in the metal building industry, we've consistently provided top-quality materials throughout our seven division locations. Teaming up with one of the great names in racing is a testament to our commitment to excellence. We look forward to the positive impact this partnership will bring to both industries.”

Broadcast coverage for the United Rentals 300 at Daytona begins at 5 p.m. ET on Saturday, Feb. 17, on FS1, MRN and SiriusXM NASCAR Radio Channel 90.
