  1. AM Racing, Austin Wayne Self look to master Tricky Triangle LONG POND, Pa.: On the heels of their season-best performance at Homestead-Miami (Fla.) Speedway two weeks ago, AM Racing and driver Austin Wayne Self travel to Pocono (Pa.) Raceway for Saturday afternoon’s Pocono Organics 150 eager to earn their first top-10 finish of the season. Another race weekend without practice and qualifying forced a 31st place starting-position at Homestead, but hard work by Self and crew chief Eddie Troconis kept the team moving forward and onto a solid 16th place finish at the 1.5-mile speedway. “Homestead was a good race for us,” recalled Self. “We didn’t have a good starting position, but we were really mindful of our changes as the track transitioned and Eddie did a good job getting the truck to its best at the end of the race and gave us a finish that I’m really excited to build on.” Moving ahead to Pocono Raceway’s 2.5-mile triangle, Self describes the track dubbed as the “Tricky Triangle” as one of the most unique tracks on the circuit, but one he enjoys competing at. Self, 24, will make his fifth NASCAR Gander RV & Outdoors Truck Series start this weekend and looks to capitalize on three straight top-18 finishes. He also has five ARCA Menards Series starts at the Long Pond, Pa. track, including three top-10 finishes – including an ARCA track best of sixth last July. “Pocono is one of those places that keeps you on your toes, but I enjoy racing there. The frontstretch is so massive that it provides some great racing, especially if you can get a run off Turn 3. “The tunnel turn is treacherous too, but that’s what makes hitting your marks so crucial too. While I won’t be in the ARCA car this weekend, our focus with the truck is to go out there and see if we can maybe use strategy to get some stage points and grab our first top-10 of the year.” With just 60 laps to get business down on Saturday, Self said once the green flag drops, it’s go-time. “60 laps will go by in a hurry,” sounded Self. “It’s one of the quickest races of the year and while strategy is also important at a place like Pocono, you have to be willing to take gambles too, especially maybe at that first stage to make sure track position is on your side for the rest of the race. I’m looking forward to getting back up there.” Don’t mess with Texas, CForce Bottling Company, Flying Circle, and Kreuz Market will serve as associate partners in the sixth race of the year. In 89 NGROTS races, the 2014 ARCA Menards Series Rookie of the Year has two top-fives (second at Daytona 2017, fifth at Michigan 2019) and seven top-10 finishes. The Texan maintains an average finish of 18.2 during his five years of competition. The Austin, Texas native is nestled 18th in the championship standings with 18 races remaining.

  3. AM Racing, Austin Wayne Self optimistic about Homestead return HOMESTEAD, Fla.: Looking to bounce back from a disappointing finish last weekend at Atlanta (Ga.) Motor Speedway, AM Racing and driver Austin Wayne Self trek to the Sunshine State hoping to deliver a strong finish in Saturday afternoon’s Baptist Health 200 at Homestead-Miami (Fla.) Speedway. Contending for a solid finish in the fourth NASCAR Gander RV & Outdoors Truck Series race of the season, Self suffered bad luck late in the race that left the team with the determination to bounce back at a track where they enjoyed modest success to close out the 2019 Truck Series season. “I always enjoy racing at Homestead,” said Self. “It’s a great race track that provides plenty of opportunity for racing, battles and action. “Since the race time has been adjusted closer to night, hopefully, we can start where we left off in November and go from there.” Self, 24, will make his fifth start at the Southern Florida race track and hopes to build on a track best of 17th at the 1.5-mile speedway in 2017. Last year, qualifying was rained out, but Self held steady throughout the event’s 134-laps to finish 19th. This year, Self wants more, a lot more, but realizes it may be a bit more challenging compared to last fall. “It’s been great to be back at the track and racing, but without practice and qualifying, its put the teams on notice to come to the track and leave nothing on the table from the get-go. Eddie (Troconis, crew chief) has done a good job putting us in a place to be competitive – but we strive to be better. “It’s been exciting to jump right into race mode, but at times you wished you had a little bit of practice to put yourself in a better position for the race. For Homestead, I think we can apply some of our notes from last year and hope it lands us in a good spot until at least the competition caution. “We want a top-10. I think we’ve shown at times we have the speed to be capable of running and finishing in the top-10. If we can do that, it puts us in a good place for our break until we go back racing at the end of the month.” For the lone trip to Homestead this season, GO TEXAN and AM Technical Solutions will serve as major associate partners for Saturday afternoon’s race. Don’t mess with Texas, CForce Bottling Company, Flying Circle, and Kreuz Market will serve as associate partners in the fifth race of the year. In 88 NGROTS races, the 2014 ARCA Menards Series Rookie of the Year has two top-fives (second at Daytona 2017, fifth at Michigan 2019) and seven top-10 finishes. The Texan maintains an average finish of 18.3 during his five years of competition. The Austin, Texas native is nestled 22nd in the championship standings with 19 races remaining.

  4. AM Racing, Austin Wayne Self welcomes Squeeze Marketing with front row seats at Atlanta HAMPTON, Ga.: With his 24th birthday just days in the rear-view mirror, AM Racing’s Austin Wayne Self heads to Atlanta (Ga.) Motor Speedway for Saturday afternoon’s VetTix | Camping World 200 hoping to celebrate a little more. Of course, winning is tough at any professional level, but for the Statesville, N.C.-based team, a top-10 finish in the third NASCAR Gander RV & Outdoors Truck Series race of the season would feel like a win and a perfect belated birthday present for the Austin, Texas native. In the most recent race at Las Vegas (Nev.) Motor Speedway, Self improved on a 26th-place qualifying effort to finish a season-high 17th, but wanting more for his family-owned team, Self is ready to get back to the consistency his AM Racing team dished out throughout the second half of the 2019 season. “It was a good birthday,” said Self. “I spent the day at the shop hanging with my team and getting the trucks ready for Atlanta and Homestead. We left Vegas content that we were able to bounce back from the troubles at Daytona – but knowing that our team has a lot more to offer. We hope to prove that as the season gets into a routine. Hopefully, we can come out of Atlanta with a good finish and some momentum for the upcoming races at Homestead and Texas.” Self will make his fourth career NGOTS start at Atlanta’s fast and bumpy 1.5-mile oval. And while a late-race accident ruined the team’s day last season at Atlanta – Self said before the crash, he was happy with the performance of his No. 22 Chevrolet Silverado. “We were making strides towards contending for a top-10 and within a matter of seconds, our day was done,” recalled Self. “This weekend, redemption is on the line. We’ve made great headway with the performance of our intermediate program lately and I hope we’re able to showcase that on Saturday afternoon. Atlanta is a bumpy race track but that provides the opportunity for great racing. The trucks still draft a lot when it comes to the mile-and-a-half tracks, so it’s important for us to get that right balance with our truck, especially over the bumps and being able to capitalize on the runs that you’ll get during the race. Drafting will be important Saturday but so will handling. That will produce a good show for the fans and hopefully, we’re a part of the mix.” In 86 NGROTS races, the 2014 ARCA Menards Series Rookie of the Year has two top-fives (second at Daytona 2017, fifth at Michigan 2019) and seven top-10 finishes. The Texan maintains an average finish of 18.1 during his five years of competition. The Austin, Texas native is nestled 23rd in the championship standings with 21 races remaining. The VetTix | Camping World 200 (134 laps| 201 miles) is the third of 23 NASCAR Gander RV & Outdoors Truck Series races on the 2020 schedule. Practice begins on Fri., Mar. 13 from 1:35 p.m. – 2:25 p.m. A final short 25-minute final practice session has been etched in from 4:32 p.m. – 4:57 p.m. Qualifying is set for race day, Sat., Mar. 14 beginning at 10:05 a.m. The 32-truck field will take the green flag shortly after 1:30 p.m. with live coverage on FOX Sports 1 (FS1), the Motor Racing Network (Radio) and SiriusXM NASCAR Radio (Satellite Radio, Channel 90). All times are local (Eastern). After a two-week hiatus, AM Racing returns to the track with additional support for the 134-lap race. Squeeze Marketing will serve as an associate partner for the VetTix | Camping World 200. “We are thrilled to have the opportunity to be a part of this race in Atlanta,” said Squeeze Marketing co-owner Brian Gargone. “We have worked closely with the family on a few projects over the last few months and are looking forward to helping the race team succeed in any way possible. The opportunity to bring out the Squeeze Team to experience the culture of the AM Racing Team will be one that we will remember for a long time.” “It’s always exciting to bring a new partner to NASCAR,” offered Self. “Squeeze Marketing is working with one of our other partners and wanted the experience the racing industry firsthand. We look forward to hosting some of their executives at the track and expanding our relationship with them in the future.” For the lone trip to the Peach State this season, GO TEXAN and AM Technical Solutions will serve as major associate partners for Saturday afternoon’s race. Don’t mess with Texas, CForce Bottling Company, Flying Circle and Kreuz Market will serve as associate partners in the third race of the year.

  5. AM Racing, Austin Wayne Self prepared to roll the dice at Las Vegas LAS VEGAS, Nev.: Looking to rebound from circumstances beyond their control last weekend at Daytona (Fla.) International Speedway, AM Racing driver Austin Wayne Self and his Eddie Troconis led team are ready to roll the dice in this Friday night’s NASCAR Gander RV & Outdoors Truck Series race at Las Vegas (Nev.) Motor Speedway. While running towards the top-10 last Friday night at Daytona, a mistake by another driver triggered an accident that wiped Self and others from the season opener. Despite the sour finish, the family-owned team was upbeat about their on-track performance and hope Daytona was a preview of what’s to come in 2020. “It’s hard to be mad about last weekend at Daytona because that’s Daytona,” said driver Austin Wayne Self. “It’s disappointing because I felt like we had a truck capable of running inside the top-five and contending for the win and we were done for the night not even 50 laps into the race. “We’re going to Vegas though focused and ready to hit “restart” on the season and get some momentum before we head to Atlanta in a few weeks.” Self is no stranger to Las Vegas’ 1.5-mile oval. In his previous six starts, Self has one top-10 finish in 2018 and maintains an average finish of 16.3 since 2016. With finishes of 15th and 17th last year respectively, Self says those finishes won’t cut it in 2020. “We’ve spent a lot of time working on our mile and a half program,” added Self. “After all that’s the bread and butter of the Truck Series for the most part. I feel like Eddie and I are in a good place as far as communication goes – we’re just working hard to make our trucks better. I’m hoping that we’ll be able to show just how hard we’ve worked on our trucks with our first top-10 finish of the year on Friday night.” Joining the AM Racing team on Friday night is JB Henderson Construction – who is renewing their partnership with the Statesville, N.C.-based team but upping their commitment for the 2020 season. In addition to a primary role at Las Vegas, the company will have a predominant associate partnership placement throughout the remaining 21 races. “I’m so thankful to see JB Henderson Construction increase their support with our AM Racing team this season,” added Self. “For many years now, we have welcomed the support of JB Henderson – but to now have the opportunity to represent them in a larger role is a huge boost for our team heading to Las Vegas.” For the series’ first of two trips to Sin City this season, JB Henderson Construction and GO TEXAN will serve as major associate partners for Friday night’s race. Don’t mess with Texas, CForce Bottling Company, Flying Circle and Kreuz Market will serve as associate partners in the second race of the year. The Strat 200 (134 laps| 201 miles) is the second of 23 NASCAR Gander RV & Outdoors Truck Series races on the 2020 schedule. Practice begins on Fri., Feb. 21 from 8:05 a.m. – 9:25 a.m. Qualifying is later in the day beginning at 2:05 p.m. The 32-truck field will take the green flag shortly after 6:00 p.m. with live coverage on FOX Sports 1 (FS1), the Motor Racing Network (Radio) and SiriusXM NASCAR Radio (Satellite Radio, Channel 90).

  6. AM Racing, Austin Wayne Self ready for Daytona DAYTONA BEACH, Fla.: The offseason is over, and the start of the 2020 NASCAR Gander RV & Outdoors Truck Series season is here. For driver Austin Wayne Self and his AM Racing team, the duo heads to Daytona (Fla.) International Speedway this week looking to start the new season off on the right foot and collect back-to-back top-10 finishes at the “World Center of Racing.” “The offseason went pretty quick, but I’m ready to get back to the track and get after it,” said Self. “It’s a been a busy couple months with the big shop move and working hard to better our program for the season. A good finish at Daytona on Friday night would be a great reward for everyone’s efforts.” The Austin, Texas native will make his fifth start at the 2.5-mile superspeedway on Friday night and statistically speaking, it’s the home of his career-best finish in Truck Series competition. In 2017, Self guided his truck through a massive last-lap accident that propelled him to finish second. Two years later, he returned to the top-10 with a solid ninth-place result last February. This weekend though, Self believes he has a truck that could win the race. “Our superspeedway program was very strong last year,” added Self. “Of course, a lot of things have to go your way to get to the checkered flag, but a fast truck certainly helps. My crew chief Eddie (Troconis) has a niche for this type of racing and he works super hard to make sure we have what it takes when it comes to superspeedway racing. I enjoy the intensity and strategy of this type of racing and I think I’ve been able to show that over the years. Daytona has been accustomed to producing first-time winners in the past and I’d like to add my name to that list.” In 84 NGROTS races, the 2014 ARCA Menards Series Rookie of the Year has two top-fives (second at Daytona 2017, fifth at Michigan 2019) and seven top-10 finishes. The Texan maintains an average finish of 18.0 during his four years of competition. The NextEra Energy Resources 250 (100 laps | 250 miles) is the first of 23 NASCAR Gander RV & Outdoors Truck Series races on the 2020 schedule. Practice begins on Thurs, Feb. 13 from 4:05 p.m. – 4:55 p.m. A final practice session is set for 5:05 p.m. – 5:55 p.m. Qualifying is set for race day, Fri., Feb. 14 beginning at 3:10 p.m. The 32-truck field will take the green flag shortly after 7:30 p.m. with live coverage on FOX Sports 1, the Motor Racing Network (Radio) and SiriusXM NASCAR Radio (Satellite Radio, Channel 90).

  7. Austin Wayne Self, AM Racing take checkered flag on 2019 season with top-20 finish at Homestead-Miami Speedway Homestead-Miami (Fla.)

  8. Austin Wayne Self, AM Racing taking strong presence to ISM Raceway AVONDALE, Ariz.: With just two NASCAR Gander Outdoors Truck Series (NGOTS) races left this season, veteran Austin Wayne Self (@AustinWSelf) and his AM Racing team take their recent string of strong on-track performances out west to ISM (Ariz.) Raceway for Friday night’s Lucas Oil 150. In the series’ most recent race at Martinsville (Va.) Speedway, Self contended for another top-10 finish and appeared poised to deliver his career-best outing at the famed .526-mile short track aboard his No. 22 GO TEXAN | AM Technical Solutions Chevrolet Silverado, but contact from another competitor on the last lap thwarted Self’s superb effort. While the 19th-place finish wasn’t an indicator of the team’s performance in the final short track race of the season, the Austin, Texas native invades ISM Raceway upbeat about the constant on-track presence of his Mooresville, N.C.-based team led by crew chief Eddie Troconis. “I can’t believe the 2019 season is almost over with,” said Self. “There aren’t words to describe how proud I am of the guys on this AM Racing team. Martinsville Speedway surely isn’t one of my strongest tracks, but Eddie (Troconis, crew chief) gave me a great No. 22 GO TEXAN | AM Technical Solutions Chevrolet Silverado and we were able to fight hard for a top-10 finish – before we had it taken away from us coming out of Turn 4 on the last lap. I guess that’s racing – but on the other hand, look how far we’ve come this season as a team. We’re making significant gains from top to bottom and without question, I feel like we can continue our presence in the top-10 this weekend in Phoenix and hopefully next weekend at Homestead-Miami Speedway too.” For Phoenix, the 23-year-old driver will make his fourth start at the 1.0-mile track. Last fall, he delivered his personal track best effort of 19th after starting 22nd. Fast forward 12 months later, Self says anything outside the top-10 will be a disappointment. “Phoenix can be a challenging track, but I enjoy racing at it,” he said. “It’s relatively flat, so you have to work hard on the balance to get the truck to roll through the center so you can carry the speed on exit and onto the straightaways. With the new layout, it also presents the opportunity for chaos. I think you’ll see a lot of side-by-side racing while the chance to make passes three and maybe even four-wide. There’s a lot on the table when it comes to the next to last race of the season. Everyone’s on different agendas. “I also have some extra encouragement to perform well at this race as the Phoenix Metro is home to AM Technical Solutions’ architectural and engineering group as well as the base of operation for many of their core services people who will be attending the race with us. It’s important to me to represent them well at this race. For AM Racing and I, we want to continue to show that we are getting more consistent and have no plans to slow down. I think what we have learned in 2019 will make us a Playoff worthy team in 2020. Phoenix could be good practice for that.

  9. Austin Wayne Self, AM Racing look to put on a show in Talladega rumble TALLADEGA, Ala.: After a two-week break, AM Racing’s Austin Wayne Self (@AustinWSelf) saddles back into action this weekend at Talladega (Ala.) Superspeedway eyeing his second top-five finish of the year in Saturday afternoon’s Sugarlands Shine 250. For the Austin, Texas native and his team, it’s not just about producing another solid result in their No. 22 GO TEXAN | AM Technical Solutions Chevrolet Silverado, but it’s the chance to revamp the storylines in the NASCAR Gander Outdoors Truck Series Playoffs and take the team to Victory Lane at one of the series’ most unpredictable races. “I’ve been ready for Talladega Superspeedway for a while now,” said Austin Wayne Self. “Eddie (Troconis) and the guys on the AM Racing team have been working hard on our superspeedway truck getting it ready for battle. “I love these superspeedway races. I feel like I’m a pretty good drafter and I’ve been able to come from the back to the front on a number of occasions and put our AM Racing team in the thick of the battle when it counted most. Maybe, we can finally seal the deal on Saturday afternoon.” Superspeedway racing produced the career-best outing for Self and his Mooresville, N.C.-based team. In 2017, Self-finished second in the Truck Series season-opener at Daytona (Fla.) International Speedway, cleverly mastering through a wild last-lap accident on the backstretch. Self knows that similar circumstances could transpire in the second and final superspeedway race of the season, but he says his AM Racing team can’t be worried about getting caught up in the “Big One.” “You try to put a strategy together and it winds up backfiring,” added Self. “For us, we’re not racing for a championship, but we’re racing to put our partners and team in the winner’s circle. I’m going to race respectfully this weekend, but if there’s an opportunity to put ourselves in a position to win the race, I’m going for it. “There are not too many races left in the season, so every lap is important. We’ve had a lot to be proud of at AM Racing, especially over the summer and we need to make sure we continue to make those gains over these next four races to ramp up for the 2020 season.” The 23-year-old Self will make his fourth Truck Series start at the 2.66-mile superspeedway. In his previous three efforts, he earned a track-best of 12th last October and hasn’t finished worse than 18th. He has completed 282 of the 283 laps since 2016. “Talladega is a bit wider than Daytona, so traditionally it can provide a better race,” sounded Self. “You can go from the back to the front quicker, but the stages are pretty short on Saturday, so we just need to see how the race plays out and make sure we find our (drafting) partners so we can be ready to pounce during Stage 3.” For the series’ long stop in Alabama, AM Technical Solutions will serve alongside GO TEXAN as a major associate partner for Saturday afternoon’s race. GO TEXAN, celebrating its 20th Birthday this year, represents Texas agri-business on state, national and international levels by building recognition with the GO TEXAN mark will continue its primary role with AM Racing this weekend at Talladega (Ala.)

  10. Austin Wayne Self, AM Racing ride momentum to Thunder Valley BRISTOL, Tenn: Capturing a strong and season-high fifth-place finish this past weekend at Michigan International Speedway, Austin Wayne Self (@AustinWSelf) and his AM Racing team hope to carry the momentum and deliver another strong performance in Thursday night’s UNOH 200 at Bristol (Tenn.) Motor Speedway. The recent upswing in performance of the Mooresville, N.C.-based team, including two top-six finishes in the last four races is certainly turning heads but for Austin, Texas native Self, he knows their recent performance is hopefully a taste of what’s to come. “Things are really good at AM Racing right now,” said Self who earned his second career top-five finish at Michigan. “The AM Racing guys have worked hard all year long and we’re being rewarded now with some strong finishes. We’re not done though. We want to keep going and keep getting better.” Self credits his crew chief Eddie Troconis for his motivation and his determination to succeed with the hopes of making AM Racing winners before the end of the season. “I know we’re at the beginning of the Playoffs, but we can win,” offered Self. “We are getting there. With our finishes at Kentucky and Michigan and our performances at Pocono and Eldora, I think we’ve risen our team a notch. “We can’t be too complacent though. We have to keep working hard and not settle for what we’re doing. Yes, we are running good and I’m comfortable with the trucks, but we have to get better. “As long as we keep taking steps in the right direction, we’re going to end our season on a high note.” The 23-year-old will make his fourth career start at Bristol Motor Speedway and looks to improve on his 13th place finish at the 0.533-mile short track from last August. “I love Bristol,” Self said with a smile. “It’s short track racing at its finest. It’s a fast place where things happen in a hurry, so you have to be on your toes. “Momentum is key at Bristol and track position is critical too. We just need to unload strong and keep fine-tuning our No. 22 GO TEXAN | AM Technical Solutions Chevrolet Silverado and see if we can’t get ourselves another top-10 finish on Thursday night.” Texas Department of Agriculture’s GO TEXAN program will support Self in his 78th career Truck Series start.

  12. Austin Wayne Self, AM Racing ready to roar in the Motor City BROOKLYN, Michigan: Fresh off a solid top-15 finish in the NASCAR Gander Outdoors Truck Series (NGOTS) race this past Thursday night at Eldora Speedway, Austin Wayne Self (@AustinWSelf) and his AM Racing team return to pavement racing for Saturday afternoon’s Corrigan Oil 200 at Michigan International Speedway. Self and his Mooresville, N.C.-based team are upbeat about motoring to the Motor City aiming to deliver their third top-10 finish together this season just outside of Detroit. “Michigan is a pretty cool race track,” said Self. “It’s a fast place with wide lanes and provides plenty of opportunities to pass – like a superspeedway. “As fast as Michigan is though, it’s also a momentum track and you need to have that momentum in the draft to make that pass, especially on the straightaways.” Self will make his fourth start at the 2.0-mile and is eager to build on his track-best finish of 11th last August. His worst truck finish in the Irish Hills is 16th in his track debut in 2016. Additionally, the Austin, Texas native has two ARCA Menards Series starts at Michigan with two top-10 finishes and an ARCA track best of third in 2015. Self chalks up his solid finishes at Michigan to balanced race cars and confidence behind the wheel. “You have to be on your game at Michigan,” added Self. “One slip and you can lose a lot of time. Sometimes, it feels like every lap is a qualifying run. If you get into the pack, you find yourself battling back and forth for position thanks to the benefits of momentum and the draft. “That provides good racing and ramps up the intensity level too. We’re bringing one of our best trucks to the track, so hopefully, we can have a good finish.” The Corrigan Oil 200 marks the final race of the regular season and while the odds are stacked against the team to be apart of the Playoffs, Self says his team doesn’t plan to change their approach from the regular season to the Playoffs. “I have a lot of respect for the competitors in the Playoffs and I will race them with respect, but we still need to make our noise too,” added Self. “We have a great race team with talented people and a great group of marketing partners. “If we’re in a position to contend for the win or a good finish, Playoffs or not, we’re going for it. The Playoffs are about the championship contenders, but we definitely want to use these upcoming races to make our own noise too.” Texas Department of Agriculture’s GO TEXAN program will support Self in his 77th career Truck Series start.

  13. Riding Kentucky momentum; Austin Wayne Self set for double duty at Pocono Raceway LONG POND, PA - Fresh off a solid sixth-place finish at Kentucky Speedway two weeks ago, NASCAR Gander Outdoors Truck Series (NGOTS) veteran Austin Wayne Self (@AustinWSelf) treks to Pocono (Pa.) Raceway hoping for back-to-back top-10 finishes in Saturday afternoon’s Gander RV 150. It will be another busy weekend for Self as he is also scheduled to compete in Friday afternoon’s FORTS USA 150 ARCA Menards Series race driving the No. 32 Chevrolet for Win-Tron Racing, providing double the opportunity for the Austin, Texas native. “It’s going to be a busy weekend, but I’m excited about it,” said Self. “I had a great time in my ARCA return at Chicagoland Speedway last month and I know that Win-Tron is going to bring me another fast Chevrolet this week.” Pocono’s tricky three-turn 2.5-mile can be daunting for some, but its unique layout has been a race track that Self has quickly adapted too. In three NGOTS starts, he has back-to-back top-20 finishes, while also delivering two top-10 finishes in four ARCA starts between 2014 and 2015. This weekend though, top-20 finishes won’t do. Self is determined to deliver his No. 22 GO TEXAN | AM Technical Solutions Chevrolet another top-10 run. “Pocono is always a fun place to race,” added Self. “The strategies by the crew chief and engineer are very important – especially when weather can be an issue. I haven’t always had the best luck there, but I enjoy racing there. I look forward to the opportunity to turn around my finish in Long Pond and contend for our third top-10 Truck Series finish of the year on Saturday.” Knowing that both the ARCA and Truck Series races are just a short 60-lap sprint, Self knows it’s critical for his AM Racing team to put themselves in a position to execute and with veteran crew chiefs on the box in both divisions, Self is prepared for whatever will be thrown his way. “60 laps believe it or not goes by quickly, especially in the Truck Series with stages breaks,” offered Self. “For us, qualifying is going to be important, with the stages being really short you have to take advantage of track position before the field gets spread out. “In the ARCA car, you can’t determine when a caution flag may wave so the race could be won by your trip to pit road, so this weekend offers the prime opportunity for strategy to be front and center, which provides an element of excitement for the fans.” Like Chicagoland, IceBox Helmet Coolers will serve as the primary partner of Self’s No. 32 Chevrolet SS in his 49th career ARCA start. Texas Department of Agriculture’s GO TEXAN program will support Self in his 75th career Truck Series start.

  15. Austin Wayne Self amped up about Kentucky Speedway return SPARTA, Ky.: Still excited over the performance of his AM Racing team in their most recent race together at Chicagoland (Ill.) Speedway, Austin Wayne Self (@AustinWSelf) hopes to showcase the speed again in Thursday night’s Buckle Up Your Truck 225 at Kentucky Speedway. Courtesy of AM Racing PR Poised to make his fourth career NASCAR Gander Outdoors Truck Series (NGOTS) start at the 1.5-mile speedway, Self is eager to deliver his AM Racing team their third top-10 of the season and better his personal best at Kentucky of 14th last July. “Even though we had a week off, I was really stoked about the speed we had in our truck at Chicagoland,” said Self. “Circumstances prevented us from having a better finish, but it was probably one of the best intermediate trucks I’ve ever had. “Working with my crew chief Eddie (Troconis) – I feel like we both understand where we want our trucks to be and we’re going to work hard on making great progress for not only the rest of the summer but the season.” When it comes to racing at Kentucky, Self says it has similar characteristics of Chicagoland and that should bold well for contending for his sixth career top-10. “Kentucky Speedway is another track where the surface is worn and provides a great opportunity to race,” added Self. “It’s going to be hot this week – so the track is going to be slick and that’s going to keep the field pretty close together. “We’ll practice during the day, qualify later in the afternoon and then race at night. The biggest thing for me and Eddie is to make sure we keep our No. 22 GO TEXAN | AM Technical Solutions Chevrolet balanced. “If its not right during Stage 1, we’ll have some time to adjust it on and then go fight hard to the checkered flag. A lot of my family is from the area, so I’ll have a lot of support on Thursday night and that’s great motivation to make Kentucky one of our best races of 2019.” Texas Department of Agriculture’s GO TEXAN program will support Self in his 74th career start.

  16. Austin Wayne Self returns to ARCA Menards Series at Chicagoland Speedway MOORESVILLE, N.C. – In a collaborative effort between AM Racing and Win-Tron Racing, the two organizations announced today the return of NASCAR Gander Outdoors Truck Series (NGOTS) veteran Austin Wayne Self (@AustinWSelf) to the ARCA Menards Series (AMS) for Thursday night’s Bounty 150 at Chicagoland Speedway. Self, 23, will drive the team’s No. 32 Chevrolet with support from Win-Tron Performance and IceBox Helmet Coolers. “I’m excited about getting back and racing in the ARCA Menards Series,” said Self the 2014 ARCA Menards Series Rookie of the Year. “Win-Tron Racing has had some very competitive finishes this year and I know they are going to bring me a fast race car and I look forward to the opportunity to pull double duty this weekend at Chicagoland Speedway.” Self, a native of Austin, Texas last competed in ARCA nearly two years at Road America (Wisc.) where in a second entry for Win-Tron Racing he finished sixth after starting 12th in 2017.

  17. View this email in your browser Austin Wayne Self saddles up for Texas Motor Speedway return FORT WORTH, Tex. – With spring break in the rearview mirror, Austin Wayne Self (@AustinWSelf) and his AM Racing team head to Texas Motor Speedway looking for their second top-10 finish together in Friday night’s SpeedyCash.com 400. Self will make his seventh NASCAR Gander Outdoors Truck Series (NGOTS) start at the 1.5-mile track but eyes his first top-10 at his hometown track. In his previous six starts, Self has maneuvered a best finish of 12th in 2017 – but has also finished inside the top-20 five times. Eager to get back to the race track, Self hopes the standalone Texas race brings the opportunity to earn his sixth career top-10 Gander Outdoors Truck Series finish. “Super excited to get back to Texas Motor Speedway,” said Self. “We’ve been working hard on our Texas truck the last few weeks. Texas means so much to me being the track I grew up watching races and also have the support United Sorghum Checkoff Program along with GO TEXAN. “Always a big week when we show up in the home state.” For the ninth NASCAR Gander Outdoors Truck Series (NGOTS) race of the year and second time this season, AM Racing will carry the brand of the United Sorghum Checkoff Program, while also commemorating GO TEXAN and their 20th-year celebration. The 23-year-old Self also hopes his final visit to the Lone Star state this season will provide the chance to get his AM Racing track back on track after a two-race slide at Kansas and Charlotte respectively. “Texas is the perfect place to get our year back on track,” Self added. “Texas is so fun to race. The new Turn 1 and 2 is almost like a road course corner, where you can overdrive it easy. It makes for some really good racing and makes you think about your passing opportunities. It’s going to be a good show on Friday night, and I can’t wait to get there.” The United Sorghum Checkoff Program and Texas Department of Agriculture’s GO TEXAN program will support Self in his 70th career start. AM Technical Solutions, Don’t mess with Texas, CForce Bottling Company, Flying Circle and Kreuz Market will serve as associate partners in the ninth race of the year.

  18. Plenty of reasons to succeed for Austin Wayne Self at Kansas Speedway KANSAS, Kan. – Chalking up a solid return to the NASCAR Gander Outdoors Truck Series (NGOTS) last weekend at Dover (Del.) International Speedway, Austin Wayne Self (@AustinWSelf) and his AM Racing team carry the momentum of their on-track speed as the series treks to Kansas Speedway for Friday night’s Digital Ally 250. Taming the Monster Mile, Self was on course for a top-10 finish – but a late race obstacle thwarted the team’s effort. Despite the team’s top-20 finish, the Mooresville, N.C.-based operation was encouraged by their efforts and hope to deliver Self’s second top-10 run of the year under the Kansas City lights. “I’ve always enjoyed going to Kansas,” said Self. “It’s a traditional 1.5-mile race track with a lot of similarities to Kentucky Speedway – but historically Kansas has been one of my better intermediate tracks. “I hope that continues Friday night.” Of course, there’s plenty of motivation for Self to deliver a strong outing in the Land of Oz. With family always being Self’s number one priority, Friday night’s seventh race of the season holds a little more sentimental value with this Sunday (May 12) being Mother’s Day and with Self’s mother JoAnn being a huge supporter front and center nearly every race weekend. “I love having my family at the race track every weekend,” offered Self. “My mom and dad are there almost every weekend and offer a lot of encouragement and support through the good and bad. The moms in NASCAR make a lot of sacrifices including my mom – so a good run on Friday night will mean a little more for me and hopefully her too.” Self, 23, will make his fourth NGOTS at Kansas and looks to better a 13th place finish which he earned last May. In addition to Trucks, Self has two additional starts in the ARCA Menards Series from 2014 – 2015. “With Kansas being a one-day show, we can’t afford to leave anything on the table,” noted Self. “It’s important to make sure I’m working with Eddie (Troconis, crew chief) to make sure our balance during the day in practice and even qualifying will be transparent at night. “That was the biggest thing for us last year. We were able to keep the speed up because our truck responded to the changing track conditions. At this point, I feel like we have a lot of speed and just want to keep moving in the right direction not only this weekend at Kansas but for the upcoming races too.” The Texas Department of Agriculture’s GO TEXAN program and AM Technical Solutions will support Self in his 68th career start. GO TEXAN, celebrating its 20th Birthday this year, represents Texas agri-business on state, national and international levels by building recognition with the GO TEXAN mark.

  19. Austin Wayne Self; AM Racing carry Daytona momentum to Atlanta HAMPTON, Ga. – Two years ago, veteran NASCAR Gander Outdoors Truck Series (NGOTS) driver Austin Wayne Self (@AustinWSelf) found himself in a similar position leaving Daytona with a good finish to start the season. But, one circumstance is majorly different heading to Atlanta (Ga.) Motor Speedway, site of Saturday afternoon’s Atlanta 200, Self will be a competitor in the event. In 2017, Self finished a career-best second at the 2.5-mile superspeedway, but did not attempt Atlanta, wiping out the team’s hopes of a competing for a championship. However, the mindset is completely different 24 months later where the AM Racing team led by crew chief Eddie Troconis treks to Atlanta on the heels of a solid ninth-place finish to open the season. With some momentum on their side, the team is eager to impress in the opening races of 2019. “It felt so good for our team to have such a strong run at Daytona,” said Self. “I feel like we impressed a lot of people. I don’t think many expected us to make it to the final round of qualifying. We kept the speed and performance up through the first two stages of the race and then survived the chaos at the end to get us a top-10 finish. Saturday afternoon’s double-header will be the second race where Self and Troconis have worked together but the Austin, Texas native says that the chemistry with his new crew chief hasn’t even hit its peak. “Eddie’s energy, focus, and leadership really contributed to our success at Daytona last weekend,” added Self. “He was eager to listen to what I was saying about our No. 22 GO TEXAN | AM Technical Solutions Chevrolet Silverado and made the adjustments I needed to improve our speed on the track. “I know that there’s a vast difference between Daytona and Atlanta, but that trust between each other is quickly building and I think it will only continue to get stronger the longer the season goes. I honestly feel like we can win a race or two this year, that’s how pumped I am right now.” Self, 22, will make his third start at Atlanta’s 1.54-mile track and looks to better his top-15 performance last year. In his track debut in 2016, he finished 16th. “My record isn’t that bad at Atlanta,” noted Self. “It’s a track where patience is your best friend. Tires go away in a hurry and you have to manage that. The stage breaks help, but you have the chance to get yourself a lap down during the third stage if you don’t manage yourself. “We have high hopes that we can backup what we did in qualifying at Daytona and put ourselves in a good position for the race. If we can’t put ourselves in a good spot to win, collecting as many points as possible is our top priority.” Troconis says he’s proud of the commitment by Self and sees Daytona as only the preview of what’s to come for AM Racing. “I’m proud of our team,” he said. “We came out of the box with a new group of guys but a very dedicated bunch. I’m looking forward to the year. Austin gave us everything he could behind the wheel, and we survived the race as best as we could. “Austin has proven to be a steady and firm driver on the intermediate tracks in the past and I hope with the improvements we’ve made to the truck, it will allow him to pick up a bunch of spots and earn another top-10 finish to carry us into Las Vegas.” The Texas Department of Agriculture’s GO TEXAN program and JB Henderson Construction will support Self in his 65th career start. GO TEXAN, celebrating its 20th Birthday this year, represents Texas agri-business on state, national and international levels by building recognition with the GO TEXAN mark.

  20. Austin Wayne Self fired up for Homestead-Miami Speedway return HOMESTEAD, Fla. – With the 2017 NASCAR Camping World Truck Series season set to come to a close in Friday night’s Ford EcoBoost 200 at Homestead-Miami (Fla.) Speedway, Martins Motorsports with Faith Motorsports driver Austin Wayne Self (@AustinWSelf) is fired up for his return to the Sunshine State. In February, Self, a native of Austin, Texas opened his sophomore season of competition with a thunderous second-place finish in the NextEra Energy Resources 250 at Daytona (Fla.) International Speedway. And while the 21-year-old realizes that a duplicate performance may be difficult at Homestead’s ultra-fast 1.5-mile speedway, the Texan is optimistic about his chances. “I’m looking forward to getting back to Homestead this weekend,” said Self. “It’s a neat race track and I always seem to have a lot of luck in Florida. “This is my last race with the gang at Martins Motorsports with Faith Motorsports and I really want to go out there on Friday night and give these guys a finish they can be proud of.” Since joining the team mid-season, together the duo has been able to put some respectable finishes together including several top-15 finishes while hovering inside the top-20 for nearly all their races run together. Even though the team has been plagued with mechanical failures in their last two races together at Martinsville (Va.) Speedway and Phoenix (Ariz.) Raceway, Self believes they can rebound and peak even with just one race remaining. “Everyone goes into the last race of the year hoping for the best, right?” he said. “No different with these guys. I feel like we’ve done a great job to be as fast as we have been and to make the gains throughout the races like we’ve done. “Homestead is not an easy track, but it’s a place I felt I was pretty comfortable last November. It’s not a standard mile-and-a-half track, but I think that’s what makes it so compelling. It’s a multi-grove race track which can be extremely slick, especially when weather is a factor. “Hopefully, we can have a good night and the team can have something to build with for 2018.” Set to return to the Truck Series full-time next year, Self realizes that his opportunity to compete in the Championship 4 could become realistic with a lot of hard work and a positive attitude. While he plans to remain respectful to the Championship 4 competitors while running his pace for his team and marketing partners. “We’re going to race hard but be extremely respectful,” noted Self. “I would expect the same if the roles were reversed. I think this Championship format brings a lot of enthusiasm and energy to the series and we hope to have our moment amongst the Championship 4. “I think the season finale will be just as thrilling and unpredictable as the season-opener and that’s awesome.” In addition to AM Technical Solutions and B&D Industries Inc., Don’t Mess with Texas will serve as an associate marketing partner for Self’s 40th career NCWTS race. Industry veteran Kevin Eagle will continue his role as crew chief. In 17 races this season driving for AM Racing, Martins Motorsports and Niece Motorsports, Self earned a career-best second place performance in the season-opening NextEra Energy Resources 250 at Daytona (Fla.) International Speedway and earned an additional top-10 at Canadian Tire Motorsport Park, both finishes driving for AM Racing. Overall, Self has earned one top-five, two top-10, eight top-15 and 12 top-20 finishes respectively. The Ford EcoBoost 200 (134 laps / 201 miles) is the 23rd of 23 NASCAR Camping World Truck Series races on the 2017 schedule.

  21. Austin Wayne Self eyes solid run in Martinsville Speedway return MARTINSVILLE, Va. – On the strength of seven top-20 finishes in the last eight NASCAR Camping World Truck Series (NCWTS) races, Austin Wayne Self (@AustinWSelf) returns to Martinsville (Va.) Speedway looking to make it nine in Saturday afternoon’s Texas Roadhouse 200 presented by Alpha Energy Solutions. Self, a native of Austin, Texas has just one prior start at the tight 0.526-mile Martinsville paperclip and looks to better a 15th place finish earned in last April’s Truck Series race – ironically driving for Martins Motorsports. Now nearly 18 months later, the team believes that with their recent chemistry and Self’s motivation to do well in his No. 44 Don’t Mess with Texas Chevrolet, a top-10 finish isn’t unrealistic for the duo. “Martinsville hasn’t been the kindest to me, but once I get into a rhythm, we get along fine,” Self joked. “Yeah, if you just don’t have the right rhythm, it’s difficult to get a good lap in – or find your place during the race. Things happen in a hurry. We just need to go out there this weekend and have a good run and carry the momentum into the final three races of the year.” For Self – reflecting on 2017 hasn’t been difficult. Despite running a partial schedule, his sophomore season has been filled with more ups than downs – including earning a career-best second place finish at Daytona International Speedway in February. With the checkered flag in sight for his second year on the Truck Series tour, Self says it’s important for him to go out there and get the most of every opportunity – especially when you’re trying to make a name for yourself. “I’ve been very fortunate to have some stellar runs this season,” added Self. “None of that would have been possible without AM Racing, Martins Motorsports, Niece Motorsports and my marketing partners who have put their faith in me to go out there and deliver the best on-track result possible. “I had a taste of another top-10 finish last month at Canadian Tire Motorsport Park and even though it’s going to be difficult at some of these upcoming races – I would be ecstatic at the possibility of getting our third top-10 of the year before Homestead. “Martinsville is a perfect place to do that. No matter what – you have to keep yourself on the lead lap and as close to the top-10 as possible. Late race cautions are expected and if you can avoid the chaos – good finishes are likely. “That would be really good for me heading back to my hometown track next weekend at Texas Motor Speedway.” In addition to AM Technical Solutions, Don’t Mess with Texas will serve as an associate marketing partner for Self’s 37th career NCWTS race. Self, 21, is scheduled to remain the primary driver for the No. 44 Chevrolet Silverado for the remainder of the 2017 NASCAR Camping World Truck Series season, except for next weekend at Texas Motor Speedway. Industry veteran Kevin Eagle will continue his role as crew chief. In 16 races this season driving for AM Racing, Martins Motorsports and Niece Motorsports, Self earned a career-best second place performance in the season-opening NextEra Energy Resources 250 at Daytona (Fla.) International Speedway and earned an additional top-10 at Canadian Tire Motorsport Park, both finishes driving for AM Racing. Overall, Self has earned one top-five, two top-10, seven top-15 and 11 top-20 finishes respectively.

  22. Austin Wayne Self sets sights on strong superspeedway return with Niece Motorsports TALLADEGA, Ala. – Ever since Austin Wayne Self (@AustinWSelf) earned a career-best second place finish in February’s NextEra Energy Resources 250 at Daytona (Fla.) International Speedway, he has been patiently waiting for the return of Saturday afternoon’s fred’s 250 powered by Coca-Cola for an opportunity to magic restrictor plate magic flow again. At Daytona, Self found himself a victim in an array of multi-truck accidents which made his AM Racing prepared Toyota Tundra look more like something out of Bristol Motor Speedway’s rough and tumble half-mile oval than a smooth and breathtaking superspeedway oval. Even with an array of damage, Self nestled his way through a crazy final lap to come within inches of earning his first career NASCAR Camping World Truck Series victory. Even though the Austin, Texas native had to settle for second when it was all said and done, Self has been waiting for the chance to do it again. “I’ve become a fan of restrictor plate racing,” said Self. “It’s a great opportunity for us – working on an admirable budget to have the capabilities of running with some of the top fleet organizations of the sport.” “We did what we had to do at Daytona. We avoided the chaos for the most part and put ourselves in position when it counted. We need to do the same at Talladega this week.” For the 19th race of the Truck Series season, Self will reunite with NIECE Motorsports and drive the No. 45 Snap Track Toyota in his second career NCWTS start at the 2.66-mile superspeedway. Self has drove for the newly founded Truck Series team in two occasions this season earlier in the year at Kansas Speedway and Iowa Speedway respectively. In their debut, the team negotiated a hard fought and respected 15th place finish. With an identical truck to his Daytona vehicle, Self is determined to bring NIECE Motorsports to the front and deliver their first top-10 finish. “I’m appreciative for the chance to work with Cody (Efaw) and the whole crew from NIECE Motorsports again,” offered Self. “I felt in the two races we ran together, we showed a lot of promise and ability.” “Talladega is going to be completely different to a place like Kansas or Iowa, but I think we easily know what we want to do. For us, it’s just a matter of getting through the madness you come to expect with plate racing and hope for the best.” Of course, Self enters Talladega already on the heels of being a part of a winning team. Last Friday afternoon at Charlotte (N.C.) Motor Speedway, Self’s girlfriend Jennifer Anderson won the Better Half Dash charity race on the quarter-mile of the track’s 1.5-mile surface. Self as her spotter guided Anderson through a series of late-race restarts which ultimately allowed her to swipe the lead from Paige Keselowski, wife of NASCAR Monster Energy Cup Series driver Brad Keselowski for the trophy and champagne celebration. She also collected a $10,000 check which she donated to the Hermie and Elliott Sadler Charitable Foundation. “Jennifer did an amazing job in the Better Half Dash,” offered Self. “She was incredibly smooth and fast with her finesse and I think she really surprised a lot of people. Her brother (Jordan) and I race every week in the Truck Series, but it was an incredible feeling to be on the same side of the fence cheering on someone we care a lot about. She carried the AM Racing banner and did it well!” “Now, it’s my turn to win,” Self said with a chuckle.” In addition to Snap Track, B&D Industries Inc., Superior Essex, Accu-Tech, AM Technical Solutions and Don’t Mess with Texas will serve as an associate marketing partner for Self’s 36th career NCWTS race. In 13 races this season driving for AM Racing, Martins Motorsports and Niece Motorsports, Self earned a career-best second place performance in the season-opening NextEra Energy Resources 250 at Daytona (Fla.) International Speedway and earned an additional top-10 at Canadian Tire Motorsport Park, both finishes driving for AM Racing. Overall, Self has earned one top-five, two top-10, seven top-15 and 10 top-20 finishes respectively.

  23. Austin Wayne Self heads to Las Vegas eyeing jackpot finish LAS VEGAS, Nev. – Fresh off his best finish for Martins Motorsports in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series (NCWTS), Austin Wayne Self (@AustinWSelf) heads to Las Vegas (Nev.) Motor Speedway this weekend looking to keep his recent swing of momentum rolling in Saturday night’s Las Vegas 350. Last Saturday afternoon at New Hampshire Motor Speedway, Self soundlessly maneuvered from his 19th place qualifying effort at the 1.058-mile track to navigate a 14th place finish, his fourth top-20 finish for the Mooresville, N.C.-based team in five races. Now, Self, 21, returns to Las Vegas Motor Speedway eyeing a jackpot finish for Martins Motorsports, Faith Motorsports and his marketing partners. “We had a good weekend at New Hampshire,” said Self. “The truck was really solid and we ran our race. We had to make some changes to our truck throughout the race and those changes worked allowing me to move through the field and earn our best finish together. “I really think our team flies under the radar. Martins and Faith Motorsports are full of talented people who have a huge heard and love for NASCAR racing. We may not have the biggest budget, but we have the heart and desire to do big things. Quietly, we’ve been able to do that and hopefully this is just the start of what’s to come for the rest of the season.” This weekend, Self returns to Sin City where he hopes the fast speeds of Las Vegas offers an opportunity to earn his third top-10 finish of the year. “I like Las Vegas,” added Self. “Of course, I love the city and its entertainment it brings, but the track is awesome too. “It’s a fast place, where speed is important, but drafting can be a great equalizer to make up any speed you’re missing. “I think you’ll see a lot change between the teams throughout the day. Practice is really early in the morning, then we qualify later in the day and darkness will soon fall after taking the green flag. The team(s) able to keep up with those changes will have a great opportunity to contend for a good finish. “I hope we’re included in that group.” Saturday night’s race will mark the Austin, Texas native’s second run at the 1.5-mile speed plant. Last October, he qualified 25th and raced hard to a respectable 21st place finish. This weekend, however, Self says anything less than a top-20 finish is unacceptable. “I feel I’ve grown as a driver over the past year and I think that has shown with our finishes this year. I know when I can push the truck and when I can’t. I know when to makes moves and when to back off and try again later. That said, I feel like the more experience I have returning to Las Vegas will be a big plus for us. “Of course, anything can happen in the race, but I feel like we have a good enough team where we have the capabilities of finishing better if everything works out. I feel like it’s going to be a fast-paced race on Saturday night, so we’ll just have to see what happens.” Before Self turns his attention towards Las Vegas, he’ll detour to Dallas, Texas where he’ll help kickoff the start of the Texas State Fair with partner GO TEXAN. The State Fair begins September 29 and runs through October 22 at the Fair Park in Dallas. “I’m very excited to come back home and attend the State Fair of Texas,” said Self who recorded a career-best second place NASCAR finish at Daytona International Speedway earlier this season. “The atmosphere, events, rides, games, food and all really do a good job at showcasing the pride that Texans have at this fair and I’m looking forward to spending some time there over the next couple of weeks.” In addition to AM Technical Solutions, Don’t Mess with Texas will serve as an associate marketing partner for Self’s 35th career NCWTS race. Self, 21, is scheduled to remain the primary driver for the No. 44 Chevrolet Silverado for the remainder of the 2017 NASCAR Camping World Truck Series season. Industry veteran Kevin Eagle will continue his role as crew chief. In 12 races this season driving for AM Racing, Martins Motorsports and Niece Motorsports, Self earned a career-best second place performance in the season-opening NextEra Energy Resources 250 at Daytona (Fla.) International Speedway and earned an additional top-10 at Canadian Tire Motorsport Park, both finishes driving for AM Racing. Overall, Self has earned one top-five, two top-10, seven top-15 and nine top-20 finishes respectively. The Las Vegas 350 (146 laps / 219 miles) is the 18th of 23 NASCAR Camping World Truck Series races on the 2017 schedule. Practice begins on Sat, Sept. 30 from 8:30 a.m. – 9:25 a.m., with a final practice session is set for 10:00 a.m. – 10:55 a.m. Qualifying is set for later in the day beginning at 3:10 p.m. The 32-truck field will take the green flag shortly after 5:00 p.m. with live coverage on FOX Sports 1 (FS1), the Motor Racing Network (Radio) and SiriusXM NASCAR Radio (Satellite Radio, Channel 90).

  24. Austin Wayne Self returns to New Hampshire eyeing another solid run LOUDON, NH – Continuing to mount solid finishes behind the wheel of the No. 44 Don’t mess with Texas Chevrolet, Austin Wayne Self (@AustinWSelf) heads to New Hampshire Motor Speedway eyeing another top-20 finish in Saturdayafternoon’s UNOH 175. While the Austin, Texas native isn’t a part of this year’s NASCAR Camping World Truck Series (NCWTS) playoffs, there is still plenty left for Self and his team to accomplish as the checkered flag nears on the 2017 season. With three top-20 finishes in four races steering the No. 44 Don’t’ mess with Texas Chevrolet, Self returns to New Hampshire hoping his short track experience will pay dividends and put him in contention for another solid showing. “When you think about it, we have a lot to be proud of,” said Self. “This opportunity to drive for Martins and Faith Motorsports came together pretty quickly, but together we have kept our expectations realistic and I think we’ve overdelivered when it comes to our finishes.” “If not for the late race issues at Bristol, we’d be heading to New Hampshire looking at four top-20 finishes overall. To me, that’s impressive.” “This weekend, it’s more of the same for us. We just look to run our race and see what kind of finish we can put together. A good finish on Saturday will propel us towards one of my favorite tracks next weekend, Las Vegas.” But, before Self can shift his concentration towards Sin City, he must conquer New Hampshire, a flat 1.058-mile short track with tight turns and crisp straightaways. Last fall, Self qualified 29th but found himself involved in a late-race accident and finished 29th. “We had a good truck at New Hampshire last year, just didn’t have the result that we were looking for,” recalled Self. “Still, I learned a lot about the track and what it takes to maneuver, especially off Turn 4 to get that run down the frontstretch that you can carry into Turn 1.” “The 21-year-old added that since New Hampshire is difficult to pass, qualifying is crucial towards having a good day at “The Magic Mile.” “Even though it’s a short track, New Hampshire is still tough to negotiate,” he said. “For being a small team like we are, we feel like we can excel a little better on these smaller tracks. Hopefully, everyone will see that.” “The closer we can start to the front the better our chances for a good finish will be. I appreciate the opportunity to drive this truck and earn another respectable performance for everyone who makes this race possible.” In addition to AM Technical Solutions, Don’t Mess with Texas will serve as an associate marketing partner for Self’s 34th career NCWTS race. Self, 21, is scheduled to remain the primary driver for the No. 44 Chevrolet Silverado for the remainder of the 2017 NASCAR Camping World Truck Series season. Industry veteran Kevin Eagle will continue his role as crew chief.

International Speedway and earned an additional top-10 at Canadian Tire Motorsport Park, both finishes driving for AM Racing. Overall, Self has earned one top-five, two top-10, six top-15 and eight top-20 finishes respectively.

  25. Austin Wayne Self, No. 22 Don’t mess with Texas / We are One American Family Toyota, NASCAR Camping World Truck Series - Canadian Tire Motorsport Park / Canada 250 Courtesy of AM Racing PR Box Score Report Race No. 15 of 23 Stats: Started: 20th Finished: Ninth Laps: 64 / 64 Status: Running Quick Recap: In his AM Racing return, Austin, Texas native Austin Wayne Self impressed in his No. 22 Don’t’ mess with Texas / We are One American Family Toyota Tundra with a ninth-place finish north of the border at Canadian Tire Motorsport Park. On the heels of a top-10 finish in his ARCA Racing Series presented by Menards return on a road course last weekend at Road America (Wisc.), the Texan had hoped to take the momentum of a strong ARCA run and capitalize on it in his 10 NASCAR Camping World Truck Series (NCWTS) start of the year. Not only did Self capitalize on his performance, but the finish propels the likeable Self into the off-weekend with a solid outlook on the rest of the NCWTS season. After starting 20th, Self hovered inside the top-20 to end Stage 1 in 19th. However, AM Racing crew chief Bill Henderson was eager to burst Self and his No. 22 team into the spotlight by the end of Stage 2, when Self took fifth and gained some crucial stage points. Making his final pit stop at the end of Stage 2, Self restarted deep in the field, but steadily worked his way forward on fresher tires and a lot of determination. With eight laps to go, Self had maneuvered himself back to eighth and over the course of the final laps, the 21-year-old wrestled his way back inside the top-10 and claimed ninth when the checkered flag waved. Self has 32 career NASCAR Camping World Truck Series starts to his credit. He holds a career-best finish of second at Daytona International Speedway in Feb. 2017 driving for AM Racing. Self’s career-best qualifying effort occurred at his hometown track of Texas Motor Speedway in June 2017 where he qualified 15th before finishing 12th. Driver Quote: “I’m really proud of the effort our AM Racing showed and delivered at Canadian Tire Motorsport Park. We had a good truck even though we didn’t have the best qualifying effort." “We utilized some strategy and took advantage of being at the right place at the right time to find ourselves in a good stage 2 position and we’re able to make the most of rallying through the field after the final round of pit stops." “I can’t thank my guys enough, along with Don’t mess with Texas and all of our marketing partners at AM Racing. It was important for us to do what we could to spread the message of love and support to those affected by Hurricane Harvey. I promise we won’t forget about them and we’ll be doing our best to help for the weeks and months to come.” Event Notes: Austin Wayne Self finished ninth in the Canada 250 at Canadian Tire Motorsport Park in his second NASCAR Camping World Truck Series race at the iconic 2.459-mile road course. Last September, the Texan finished 15th after starting 22nd. Self-made his 10th NASCAR Camping World Truck Series start of the year but fifth of the season with Mooresville, N.C.-based AM Racing.
