A Casualty in Trump’s China War: TikTok’s Kevin Mayer

  A Casualty in Trump’s China War: TikTok’s Kevin Mayer When Kevin Mayer left his big job running Disney’s direct-to-consumer streaming business in mid-May, it was because he had an even bigger job to look forward to: one that would involve running fast-growing social video app TikTok while serving as COO of its $100 billion parent company, ByteDance. But during his first three months as TikTok CEO, the app became a pawn in President Trump’s battle with China. And Mayer — who in informing staff about his resignation Aug. 26 cited changes to “the global role I signed up for” — ultimately became a casualty.

BRISTOL, Tenn. — Sam Mayer celebrated his recent promotion to JR Motorsports with a sweep at Bristol Motor Speedway. The teen sensation opened Thursday night with his first NASCAR national series victory with a Truck Series win and followed it immediately after with an ARCA Series win.

It was quite the party for the 17-year-old Mayer, who was hired this week to race in the Xfinity Series next season for JR Motorsports. He won in his seventh career Truck Series start — fourth this year — for an upset in the opening race of the playoffs.

It's a daunting task and just might require an outright win Saturday night at Bristol Motor Speedway, where four drivers will be knocked from title contention.

A win in the Truck Series by any playoff driver would have earned an automatic berth into the next round. But the field was upstaged by the teenager who signed his career-changing deal Wednesday.

Mayer first joined JR Motorsports’ Late Model program in 2018, and now will return for the second half of the 2021 Xfinity Series season when he's 18 and eligible to run at that level. He is slated to race full-time in 2022.

Mayer is the son of former IndyCar and road racing driver Scott Mayer. He's run a mixed schedule this year of ARCA, and ARCA East and West series races, winning eight times.

Moffitt led a race-high 117 laps, finished second and moved to the top of the Truck Series standings. The defending race winner made it a 1-2 finish for GMS Racing. Sheldon Creed and Zane Smith, both GMS drivers also in the playoffs, finished 12th and 17th.

“I am proud of everyone at GMS for bringing not just mine, but Sam's and Sheldon and Zane all having fast trucks in the playoffs,” Moffitt said. “That's what we need. We need to have four trucks at Phoenix racing for a championship and this is a good start.”
