  2. Austin Wayne Self and AM Racing seek third straight top-10 in Phoenix finale AVONDALE, Ariz.: The season finale from Phoenix (Ariz.) Raceway is here, and AM Racing doesn’t necessarily want the 2020 NASCAR Gander RV & Outdoors Truck Series (NGROTS) season to end in Friday night’s Lucas Oil 150. Over the last month, the Statesville, N.C. team has turned heads in the garage with fast race trucks and two consecutive top-10 finishes at Texas Motor Speedway and last Friday night’s penultimate race of the year at Martinsville (Va.) Speedway. A tough and historic short track has at times has been hard to conquer for driver Austin Wayne Self, but the veteran driver took advantage of a well-handling No. 22 GO TEXAN | AM Technical Solutions Chevrolet Silverado to keep his red and white truck near the front of the field before finishing ninth in the NASCAR Hall of Fame 200, his second top-10 of the season. “We came to Martinsville with a lot of momentum after our finish in Texas and we proved we weren’t messing around,” said Self. “We’ve worked hard at our race shop over the past six weeks to make these last few races of 2020 count and it is paying off with results. I’m stoked to go to Phoenix and contend for three top-10 finishes in a row and a strong end to our season.” Unlike the past, this year’s season finale isn’t in the heart of Southwest Florida, it’s moved to the West desert of Avondale, Ariz. and Phoenix Raceway, a track that Self admits he enjoys competing at. Self has competed in four races at Phoenix from 2016 to 2019 and last November earned a personal-track best of 18th. For Self and his AM Racing team, another top-20 would be a respectable ending to their season – but another top-10 finish propels the organization to a new level heading into the offseason and a jumpstart on 2021. “I enjoy racing at Phoenix Raceway,” admitted Self. “It’s a demanding race track, especially with the current layout, but it tends to put on good racing. Restarts will be pivotal for anyone and making sure our No. 22 GO TEXAN | AM Technical Solutions Chevrolet Silverado handles well if we receive a long green-flag run is important too. “Ryan (Salomon, crew chief) and I have chatted about what to expect and I feel pretty confident in the truck we are bringing to the track this weekend, we just have to wait for the green flag to drop and see what happens in 150 laps.” Strong finishes over the last two races have also helped Self on the starting grid. With an emphasis on the week’s prior performance formulated into the formula to make up the lineup, Self says starting close to the front is crucial in their quest for a third top-10 this weekend. “I think started nearing the front helped us a lot at Martinsville and that was thanks to our Texas Motor Speedway finish,” Self explained. “Phoenix is a place where track position is important and if you don’t have the track position, you’ll probably need to have a fast truck or play some strategy. “There’s a lot on the line this weekend for everyone. Whether it’s the championship or just a good finish, everyone has an agenda, and that sets the tone for the race. For us, we just want to keep doing what we’ve been doing since Kansas and that’s giving 100 percent every lap and not leaving anything on the table. “If we can go out there to Phoenix and do that again this weekend, the finish will hopefully take care of itself.” Self, 24, gives a lot of credit to new crew chief Ryan Salomon for coming into the frame so late in the season and catapulting the team to the next level. “I know it’s only been three races, but I feel like we have made major strides in those three races,” added Self. “Ryan is open to the feedback and does a good job conversating about what he wants to do before he does it. It’s a win-win situation for our AM Racing team at this moment and I’m excited to see what Phoenix and the future holds.” Even out of the Playoff picture, it’s still business as usual for the AM Racing team as Self expects the upward performance trend to continue to climb aboard his No. 22 GO TEXAN | AM Technical Solutions Chevrolet Silverado. “We’re a relatively small team, but sometimes David can beat the Goliath and at times we’ve been able to show that on track with our heart and passion of racing,” added Self. “We have a lot of people, including our partners who are devoted to our race team and focused on seeing our team succeed not only in 2020 but as we start to think ahead to 2021.” In addition to primary partner GO TEXAN, AM Technical Solutions, Don’t mess with Texas, AIRBOX Air Purifier, CForce Bottling Company, Flying Circle, Kreuz Market and Prasek’s will serve as associate partners in the 23rd race of the year. The Lucas Oil 150 (150 laps | 150 miles) is the 23rd of 23 NASCAR Gander RV & Outdoors Truck Series races on the 2020 schedule. The 33-truck field will take the green flag on Fri. Nov. 3, 2020, 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). All times are local (Mountain). In 106 NGROTS races, Self, the 2014 ARCA Menards Series Rookie of the Year, has two top-fives (second at Daytona 2017, fifth at Michigan 2019) and nine top-10 finishes. The Texan maintains an average finish of 18.6 during his five years of competition. The Austin, Texas native is nestled 16th in the championship standings with one race remaining.

  3. Austin Wayne Self scores back-to-back top-10 finishes with strong Martinsville result - Martinsville (Va.) Speedway | NASCAR Hall of Fame 200 Race Recap - Team: No. 22 GO TEXAN | AM Technical Solutions Chevrolet Silverado - Driver: Austin Wayne Self Start: 13th (Event Formula) Finish: Ninth; Running (200 | 200 laps completed) Driver Points Position: 16th (+0 position) Owner Points Position: 21st (+0 position) Austin Wayne Self Quote: “I’m super proud of this AM Racing team. We had such a strong and fast No. 22 GO TEXAN | AM Technical Solutions Chevrolet Silverado all night long. We got off on strategy a little bit hoping to save a set of tires for the end of the race. “Luckily, that caution came out and we came from the back of the lead lap group and got back to the top-10 but ran out of laps to finish better than ninth. Still, this finish is exactly what we were looking for. “I had a lot of fun and I’m proud of Ryan (Salomon, crew chief) and all the AM Racing guys. Excited to go to Phoenix and end the year with a chance to chase another top-10 finish.” Next Up: Lucas Oil 150 at Phoenix (Ariz.)

  4. Austin Wayne Self and AM Racing ride Texas momentum to Martinsville Speedway MARTINSVILLE, Va.: The penultimate race of the 2020 NASCAR Gander RV & Outdoors Truck Series season is on deck. With just two races remaining this year, the NASCAR Gander RV & Outdoors Truck Series is approaching the checkered flag, but for Austin Wayne Self and his AM Racing team, there is still plenty of work to be done. And with momentum on their side from a terrific seventh-place finish in last Sunday’s SpeedyCash.com 400 at Texas Motor Speedway, the AM Racing team is using momentum to propel them into Martinsville (Va.) Speedway before gearing up for the season finale at Phoenix (Ariz.) Raceway on Nov. 6. Feeling rejuvenated after Texas, Self is focused on continuing the strong pace in Friday night’s NASCAR Hall of Fame 200. “Texas was a really good race for us from start to finish,” said Self. “We kept adjusting on our truck and it responded well which allowed us to be in a position to capitalize during the green-white-checkered finish. It wasn’t a win, but the finish felt like one and lifted the spirits of everyone on the team. Hopefully, we can go to Martinsville and enjoy more of the same.” The 24-year-old returns to the 0.526-mile track poised to make his sixth start and seek his first top-10 finish. In his previous five efforts, Self-delivered a respectable 15th place finish in his track debut in 2016. “For being a short track, Martinsville is very technical,” added Self. “When it comes to that place, sometimes you have to go slower to go faster. You need to have the momentum at the right time and be able to accelerate off the corners to be able to carry the speed down the straightaways before you get back to the corner. When you put close to 40 trucks on the track, it becomes very crowded and even physical. Much like any short track, track position is critical so my crew chief Ryan (Salomon) and I will spend some time in race setup mode and see where we’re at.” Salomon will continue to lead the team as crew chief this weekend. He made his debut two races ago at Kansas Speedway and has already led the team to their first top-10 of 2020. “I feel like things are going really well with Ryan,” commented Self. “It’s never easy to swap crew chiefs during a season but Ryan has slid into the team nicely and I feel the chemistry is very solid. He’s been able to take the feedback I give them and he’s been able to make our No. 22 GO TEXAN | AM Technical Solutions Chevrolet Silverado better for the finish. I look forward to seeing what we can do over the next two races.” Even out of the Playoff picture, it’s still business as usual for the AM Racing team as Self expects the upward performance trend to continue to climb aboard his No. 22 GO TEXAN | AM Technical Solutions Chevrolet Silverado from now until Phoenix (Ariz.) Raceway in November. In 105 NGROTS races, Self, the 2014 ARCA Menards Series Rookie of the Year, has two top-fives (second at Daytona 2017, fifth at Michigan 2019) and eight top-10 finishes. The Texan maintains an average finish of 18.7 during his five years of competition. The Austin, Texas native is nestled 16th in the championship standings with two races remaining. “We’re a relatively small team, but sometimes David can beat the Goliath and at times we’ve been able to show that on track with our heart and passion of racing,” added Self. “We have a lot of people, including our partners who are devoted to our race team and focused on seeing our team succeed not only in 2020 but as we start to think ahead to 2021.” The NASCAR Hall of Fame 200 (200 laps | 105.2 miles) is the 22nd of 23 NASCAR Gander RV & Outdoors Truck Series races on the 2020 schedule. The 38-truck field will take the green flag on Fri.

  6. Margins PAC fuels AM Racing, Austin Wayne Self‘s return to Texas Motor Speedway FORT WORTH, Tex: Just three races to go. The NASCAR Gander RV & Outdoors Truck Series is approaching the checkered flag in the 2020 season, but for Austin Wayne Self and his AM Racing team, there is still plenty of work to be done. With Texas Motor Speedway, Martinsville (Va.) Speedway and the season-finale at Phoenix (Ariz.) Raceway all on the horizon, Self is focused on ending the year on a high note and putting his family-owned team in a good spot ahead of 2021. Self carries his Statesville, N.C.-based team back to his home state of Texas after a solid top-20 last weekend at Kansas Speedway. While the team’s finish was hindered late in the race, the team is upbeat about their chances of earning a top-10 finish in Sunday’s SpeedyCash.com 400. “It’s always important for us to go back to Texas and run good,” said Self. “This is a hometown race for me, and I always put a lot of pressure to run well. Luckily, I’ve had some success at Texas and hope we can continue that on Sunday.” The SpeedyCash.com 400 (147 laps | 220.5 miles) is the 21st of 23 NASCAR Gander RV & Outdoors Truck Series races on the 2020 schedule.

All times are local (Central). Self will make his ninth Truck Series start at the 1.5-mile speedway and has delivered seven top-20 finishes in the last eight races and has not finished worse than 22nd. Noted as one of the better intermediate tracks for Self, he hopes to better his 14th place performance at the 1.5-mile intermediate track from this summer. “Texas has been a solid racetrack for us,” added Self. “For whatever reason, we’ve always been able to produce solid finishes – but we are hunting a top-10 run on Sunday afternoon. That would be awesome for us.” Sunday’s race will also mark the debut of a new sponsor for the AM Racing team. Margins PAC will serve as the primary sponsor for Self and the AM Racing team in the 21st race of the season. Margins PAC is formed as an independent general-purpose political action committee (PAC). Margins PAC’s primary purpose is to address various issues of public policy. Margins PAC’s mission is to aggregate and give voice to those middle-ground voters via grassroots organization.

"We are incredibly proud to be a part of this grand tradition and look forward to a long-lasting relationship with Austin Wayne Self and AM Racing starting this weekend at Texas Motor Speedway,” offered W T Skip Leake, Treasurer of Margins PAC. “We are proud to become a NASCAR sponsor and wish the team the best of luck in Sunday’s race.” Self added, “With the support of Margins PAC, I am excited to have Trump Pence 2020 on the truck this weekend. Texas is a special place for me and with the elections coming up soon, hopefully, this should motivate people to vote! “As for our performance, I also feel that we have found something in our truck that we really like, and I think Texas would be a great place for us to shift our momentum around for the final three races of the year.” Ryan Salmon will continue to lead the team as crew chief this weekend. He made his debut last weekend at Kansas. In addition to primary sponsor Margins PAC, GO TEXAN, AM Technical Solutions, Don’t Mess with Texas, AIRBOX Air Purifier, CForce Bottling Company, Flying Circle, Kreuz Market and Prasek’s will serve as associate partners in the 21st race of the year.

  7. AM Racing, Austin Wayne Self head to Kansas Speedway prepared for the stretch drive KANSAS CITY, Kan The stretch drive is here. Just four races remain on the 2020 NASCAR Gander RV & Outdoors Truck Series schedule and for Austin Wayne Self and his AM Racing team it’s about head down and fin up heading into Saturday afternoon’s Clean Harbors 200 at Kansas Speedway. While the team had an insanely fast No. 22 AIRBOX Air Purifier | GO Texan Chevrolet Silverado in the most recent race at Talladega (Ala.) Superspeedway, Self was a victim of the “Big One” which left the Statesville, N.C. team clawing for the rest of the race. Able to leave Talladega with a top-20 in the books, a pivotal off week allowed Self and the team to regroup and prepare for the upcoming four-week stretch that will take them to the checkered flag next month. “I’m ready to get back to Kansas Speedway this weekend,” said Self. “In July, we had a pretty decent weekend, but we definitely want to utilize the race to put some numbers up on the board to really give our team some momentum for this last stretch of races this season.” Self, 24, will make his seventh Truck Series start at the 1.5-mile Kansas Speedway. In his previous six starts, he has a personal track best of 13th twice in 2018 and 2020. He also has two ARCA starts from 2014 to 2015. The Truck Series will return to Kansas Speedway for a record third time in 2020 as the original schedule was realigned because of the ongoing coronavirus pandemic and while finishes of 17th and 13th during the doubleheader weekend this summer was a jolt of momentum to the team, Self says he hopes to be better in his first-ever fall trip to the 1.5-mile speedway. “I’m so used to racing at Kansas in the late spring-early summer that I’m not sure what to really expect this weekend,” offered Self. “The track conditions though will be completely different than when we were there in July, so we have to prepare and adjust for that. “The cooler the track is – the more handling and speed will come into play. I expect a lot of drafting this weekend but this biggest obstacle we’ll face is being able to get that run off the turns that set us up for the straightaways.” Kansas will also mark the debut of a new crew chief for Self. Ryan Salmon will take over as the team leader for AM Racing this weekend. “This is our first race together in a crew chief and driver role, but I’m hoping it’s a successful debut weekend for Ryan and I on Saturday afternoon,” offered Self. “I’m hopeful that this new relationship can bring some fire to the team and we can start building for the future.” Even out of the Playoff picture, it’s still business as usual for the AM Racing team as Self expects the upward performance trend to continue to climb aboard his No. 22 GO TEXAN | AM Technical Solutions Chevrolet Silverado from now until Phoenix (Ariz.) Raceway in November. “We’re a relatively small team, but sometimes David can beat the Goliath and at times we’ve been able to show that on track with our heart and passion of racing,” added Self. “We have a lot of people, including our partners who are devoted to our race team and focused on seeing our team succeed not only in 2020 but as we start to think ahead to 2021.” In addition to primary partner GO TEXAN, AM Technical Solutions, Don’t mess with Texas, AIRBOX Air Purifier, CForce Bottling Company, Flying Circle, Kreuz Market and Prasek’s will serve as associate partners in the 20th race of the year. In 103 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 18.8 during his five years of competition. The Austin, Texas native is nestled 17th in the championship standings with four races remaining. The Clean Harbors 200 (134 laps | 201 miles) is the 20th of 23 NASCAR Gander RV & Outdoors Truck Series races on the 2020 schedule. The 36-truck field will take the green flag on Sat.

  9. AM Racing, Austin Wayne Self hope to roar in Talladega rumble TALLADEGA, Ala.: A prime opportunity is near for Austin Wayne Self and his AM Racing team and they intend to deliver. Saturday marks the second and final superspeedway race of the 2020 NASCAR Gander RV & Outdoors Truck Series season and the chance for Self to earn his first top-10 finish of the season in Saturday afternoon’s Chevrolet Silverado 250. In the series’ season-opener at Daytona (Fla.) International Speedway in February, Self was heading to the front in his No. 22 GO TEXAN | AM Technical Solutions Chevrolet Silverado, but the team was eliminated in a multi-truck accident that left the team with a sour finish. Before the accident, Self had one of the fastest trucks on the track and with the direction of crew chief Eddie Troconis, there is little doubt in Self’s mind that once the green flag waves on Oct. 3, he’ll have a chance to finish what he started at Daytona. “Even though we don’t always have the best of luck on the superspeedways, I always get excited about going to tracks like Daytona and Talladega,” said Self. “It’s an opportunity for a smaller team like ours to have a presence on the bigger stage and compete for the win. Last year, the race had a surprise in Victory Lane with one of the smaller teams and that certainly is the motivation for our AM Racing team to go out on Saturday and keep that trend going.” It was a superspeedway that Self-earned his career-best NASCAR Gander RV & Outdoors Truck Series finish. In 2017, Self, finished second in the season-opener at Daytona. Self still has flashbacks to that race more than three years ago and knows what it will take to be in a position to contend for his third career top-five finish. “We had a strong truck that night,” Self recalled. “We had two trucks in the race with JJ Yeley as my teammate. We avoided the carnage in the race and both trucks were able to finish in the top-10. “Coming to the checkered flag, there was a massive wreck on the backstretch and being at the right place at the right time allowed us to skate through the melee and finish second – and with the intensity level expected to be high on Saturday, it’s going to take a certain amount of luck and skill to aid us in getting a good finish.” For the second time this season AIRBOX Air Purifier will serve as the primary marketing partner for Self’s No. 22 Chevrolet this weekend at Talladega. “In a time where everyone is looking to be a little healthier our partnership with AIRBOX Air Purifier is one that has a lot of potential,” said driver Austin Wayne Self. “AIRBOX Air Purifier is doing great work and is quickly becoming a spectacle in its industry and to have them on board for one of the popular races of the season makes sense. Hopefully, Saturday is a good race for us and we can shake the last few races where we’ve been fast – but had rotten luck.” Even out of the Playoff picture, it’s still business as usual for the AM Racing team as Self expects the upward performance trend to continue to climb aboard his No. 22 GO TEXAN | AM Technical Solutions Chevrolet Silverado from now until Phoenix (Ariz.) Raceway in November. “We’re a relatively small team, but sometimes David can beat the Goliath and at times we’ve been able to show that on track with our heart and passion of racing,” added Self. “We have a lot of people, including our partners who are devoted to our race team and focused on seeing our team succeed not only in 2020 but as we start to think ahead to 2021.” In addition to primary partners AIRBOX Air Purifier and GO TEXAN, AM Technical Solutions, Don’t mess with Texas, CForce Bottling Company, Flying Circle, Kreuz Market and Prasek’s will serve as associate partners in the 19th race of the year. In 102 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 18.8 during his five years of competition. The Austin, Texas native is nestled 18th in the championship standings with five races remaining.

  11. AM Racing, Austin Wayne Self ready to roll the dice again at Las Vegas Motor Speedway LAS VEGAS, Nev: A perfect time. The NASCAR Gander RV & Outdoors Truck Series returns to Las Vegas (Nev.) Motor Speedway for Friday night’s World of Westgate 200 and the 17th race of the season is exactly what Austin Wayne Self and the AM Racing needed. Las Vegas is a place known for taking chances and with the team hungry for a top-10 finish in Truck Series competition, the opportunity to roll the dice in Sin City this weekend is definitely on the table. Speed hasn’t been a problem for the AM Racing team over the last eight weeks, unfortunately, two races in particular at World Wide Technology Raceway and last week at Bristol (Tenn.) Motor Speedway saw missed opportunities for the operation as Self was involved in incidents, not of his making. Bouncing back is important in sports and NASCAR is no different. Knowing that crew chief Eddie Troconis is bringing Self a competitive truck and a chance to earn a top-10 finish – Self plans to make his move and hope it’s a blackjack type of feeling. “I’m looking forward to Las Vegas this weekend,” said Self. “It’s one of the stops on the schedule that I know that we should be competitive and have an opportunity to put our AM Racing near the front.” Self will make his eighth career start at the 1.5-mile speedway track. In his previous seven starts, he hasn’t finished worse than 21st which ironically came in his track debut in 2016. To bookend the Las Vegas race this year, JB Henderson Construction is returning as the primary partner this weekend. “It is great to have JB Henderson Construction back on board this weekend at Las Vegas,” added Self. “They stepped up their commitment to our team this year and we’ve been able to represent them in a larger role which has been a big boost for our team.” This weekend, Self returns to Las Vegas on the heels of back-to-back 17th place finishes last fall and this past February. 17th won’t cut it as far as Self is concerned. He hopes to rekindle the strength of their fall effort in 2018 where the team finished ninth after starting 25th. “Las Vegas is a fun place to race,” he added. “The track has a lot of character and is very sensitive to weather. With no practice or qualifying, I know we’ll have to make some tweaks on our truck at the end of the first stage, especially as the track transition from day to night. “We just need to make sure we can get our truck handling through the bumps and accelerating the way we want through exiting the turns and onto the straightaways.” Even out of the Playoff picture, it’s still business as usual for the AM Racing team as Self expects the upward performance trend to continue to climb aboard his No. 22 GO TEXAN | AM Technical Solutions Chevrolet Silverado from now until Phoenix (Ariz.) Raceway in November. “We’re a relatively small team, but sometimes David can beat the Goliath and at times we’ve been able to show that on track with our heart and passion of racing,” added Self. “We have a lot of people, including our partners who are devoted to our race team and focused on seeing our team succeed not only in 2020 but as we start to think ahead to 2021.” In addition to primary partners JB Henderson Construction and GO TEXAN, AM Technical Solutions, AIRBOX Air Purifier, Don’t mess with Texas, CForce Bottling Company, Flying Circle, Kreuz Market and Prasek’s will serve as associate partners in the 18th race of the year. In 101 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 18.7 during his five years of competition. The Austin, Texas native is nestled 17th in the championship standings with six races remaining.

  13. AM Racing, Austin Wayne Self hunt for top-10 finish at Bristol Motor Speedway BRISTOL, Tenn: 16 races down, seven to go. On the heels of a strong performance last Thursday night at Richmond (Va.) Raceway in the ToyotaCare 250, Austin Wayne Self and his AM Racing team head to Bristol (Tenn.) Motor Speedway for another Thursday night showdown in the UNOH 200 presented by Ohio Logistics. And with the NASCAR Gander RV & Outdoors Truck Series set to open their Playoffs in Thunder Valley, Self won’t have an opportunity to go for a championship title, but he does plan to make some noise of his own over the final two months of the season. “I always look forward to Bristol, because it’s such a cool place to race,” said Self. “Right now, I think our AM Racing team has some good momentum and even if we don’t have the all the finishes to show for it lately, we’ve had some really fast No. 22 GO TEXAN | AM Technical Solutions Chevrolet Silverados and I hope we can continue to showcase that at Bristol.” Self, 24, has four previous Truck Series starts at Bristol with back-to-back top-15 finishes in 2018 and 2019 respectively and is determined to up the ante in the UNOH 200 this year. Hunting for their first top-10 finish of the season, Self says it’s their mission to execute that goal and Bristol is certainly a place where the goal can be accomplished. “We’re hunting a top-10 finish this week, we want to get ourselves there,” added Self. “I think we can do it. “The last two years – we’ve had rather good results at Bristol – all things considered. You can’t hide at Bristol. But I feel like I’ve become a better driver there with experience and track time. “Certainly not having practice or qualifying can be a little of a hindrance, but it is the same boat for everyone, so we just have to take the challenge in stride. Bristol is one of those tracks where momentum and focus are key – while just making sure you have the grip in the truck to be able to capitalize on key passing moments. “Staying out of trouble too is huge at Bristol. As we get closer and closer to the end of the season, the intensity ramps up and the stakes are high and that sometimes leads to a lot of action and Bristol is known to be a place where the action can hot and heavy.” Even out of the Playoff picture, it’s still business as usual for the AM Racing team as Self expects the upward performance trend to continue to climb aboard his No. 22 GO TEXAN | AM Technical Solutions Chevrolet Silverado from now until Phoenix (Ariz.) Raceway in November. “We’re a relatively small team, but sometimes David can beat the Goliath and at times we’ve been able to show that on track with our heart and passion of racing,” added Self. “We have a lot of people, including our partners who are devoted to our race team and focused on seeing our team succeed not only in 2020 but as we start to think ahead to 2021.” In addition to primary partners GO TEXAN and AM Technical Solutions, AIRBOX Air Purifier, Don’t mess with Texas, CForce Bottling Company, Flying Circle, Kreuz Market and Prasek’s will serve as associate partners in the 17th race of the year. In 100 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.

  14. AM Racing, Austin Wayne Self ready for Richmond Raceway debut RICHMOND, Va. It’s hard to imagine that despite the Coronavirus pandemic that literally sent the NASCAR Gander RV & Outdoors Truck Series into a standstill for more than two months, the series heads to Richmond (Va.) Raceway for Thursday night’s ToyotaCare 250 for the final race of the regular season. And while Self and his family-owned team AM Racing team are on the outside looking in as far as the Truck Series Playoffs are concerned, Richmond is a dynamic short track that sure is to present an opportunity for a potential surprise winner. “I know the odds aren’t in our favor, but sometimes short track racing delivers bombshell winners and we’re planning to go to Richmond and fight hard to be one of the biggest upsets of the season. “I realize a lot would have to go our way and we would need some luck along the way, but this AM Racing team has done a good job without practice or qualifying to bring me fast No. 22 GO TEXAN | AM Technical Solutions Chevrolet Silverados this year and Richmond should be no exception.” Like Darlington this past weekend, most of the NASCAR Gander RV & Outdoors Truck Series field doesn’t have any experience at the 0.875-mile Richmond short track and the 24-year-old driver hopes that will level the playing field as far as the competition. “Even though Darlington was a demanding race track, I thought the race was very competitive,” Self said. “I expect the same for Richmond on Thursday night. I believe it will be only a handful of drivers or less who have prior experience at Richmond. It’s important to make the most out of Stage 1 and get a good read on the track and the balance of our No. 22 GO TEXAN | AM Technical Solutions Chevrolet Silverado so we can push the attack in Stage 2 and 3.” Fighting for their first top-10 finish of the year, Self says his team is getting closer to achieving that goal as the homestretch of the 2020 season quickly approaches. “Despite everything with COVID-19 this year, I feel we have made some good gains this season,” added Self. “We’ve fought hard and even with less track time – I feel like our trucks have been faster and I think we’ve shown that a lot here lately.” Should the team fall short of earning a Playoff spot, it will continue to be business as usual for the AM Racing team as Self expects the upward performance trend to continue to climb aboard his No. 22 GO TEXAN | AM Technical Solutions Chevrolet Silverado from now until Phoenix (Ariz.) Raceway in November. “We’re a relatively small team, but sometimes David can beat the Goliath and at times we’ve been able to show that on track with our heart and passion of racing,” added Self. “We have a lot of people, including our partners who are devoted to our race team and focused on seeing our team succeed not only in 2020 but as we start to think ahead to 2021.” The ToyotaCare 250 (250 laps| 187.5 miles) is the 16th of 23 NASCAR Gander RV & Outdoors Truck Series races on the 2020 schedule. The 35-truck field will take the green flag on Thurs.

  15. AM Racing, Austin Wayne Self fired up heading to Darlington Raceway DARLINGTON, S.C.: Just two races remaining in the regular NASCAR Gander RV & Outdoors Truck Series (NGROTS) season, Austin Wayne Self and his AM Racing head to Darlington (S.C.) Raceway fired up after being taken out in the closing laps last weekend at World Wide Technology Raceway at Gateway. Heading towards another strong finish for his family-owned team at Gateway, Austin Wayne Self was hit by another competitor with less than 10 laps left in the race which not only eliminated a strong finish – but left the team with a bitter taste. But, trying to put Gateway’s result in the rearview mirror, the duo is ready to get down to business in the NASCAR Gander RV & Outdoors Truck Series return to Darlington after a nine-year absence and fight for their first top-10 finish of the season in the South Carolina Education Lottery 200. “I’m fired up heading to Darlington,” said Self. “I’m still frustrated about what happened at Gateway. My guys brought me a good No. 22 GO TEXAN | AM Technical Solutions Chevrolet Silverado and a driver who isn’t running a full season wrecked us for one spot on the track. It didn’t make any sense then and still doesn’t now. “My guys work really hard on our trucks to have that happen. But we’ll fight back, stand up and be better because of it. Darlington is an opportunity and challenge for us and one that we’ll certainly accept.” While nearly the entire field hasn’t turned a lap at the historic “Lady in Black,” – Self says everyone will be on the same playing field in the penultimate race of the regular season opening the door for comers and goers. “I’m heading to Darlington with a lot of questions and not a lot of answers,” Self said. “I watched races from there in the past – but now I’ll have a chance to race there. I know the racing groove is narrow but that should make the competition fierce and the race eventful. “We’re going there with an open mind. I feel like I have one of the smartest crew chiefs in the garage with Eddie (Troconis) and I’ll be relying on him throughout the first stage to help put us in a good spot for Stage 2 and Stage 3. “I know the Playoffs loom and even though it might be a longshot, we have a chance to make it and we’ll fight to the checkered flag at Richmond next weekend to try and make that happen.” Should the team fall short of earning a Playoff spot, it will continue to be business as usual for the AM Racing team as Self expects the upward performance trend to continue to climb aboard his No. 22 GO TEXAN | AM Technical Solutions Chevrolet Silverado from now until Phoenix (Ariz.) Raceway in November. “We’re a relatively small team, but we’ve been making some big strides this season with our heart and passion of racing,” added Self. “We have a lot of people, including our partners who are devoted to our race team and focused on seeing our team succeed not only in 2020 but as we start to think ahead to 2021.” In addition to primary partners GO TEXAN and AM Technical Solutions, AIRBOX Air Purifier, Don’t mess with Texas, CForce Bottling Company, Flying Circle, Kreuz Market and Prasek’s will serve as associate partners in the 15th race of the year. In 98 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.

  16. AM Racing, Austin Wayne Self ready to get loud and proud at Gateway MADISON, Ill: With just three races remaining in the regular NASCAR Gander RV & Outdoors Truck Series season, Austin Wayne Self and his AM Racing team trek to World Wide Technology Raceway at Gateway with a chance to spoil the Playoff party in Sunday afternoon’s WWT Raceway 200 presented by CK Power. Of course, a win would be one of the biggest upsets in the series this season, but it would be a huge payday as well for the Statesville, N.C.-based team as the event is the finale for the three-race Triple Truck Challenge which offers a bonus for any Truck Series driver and team who are able to capture a victory. And while some may consider Self and his family-owned team a longshot to win a race this season, that’s fine as far as he and crew chief Eddie Troconis are concerned – as the opportunity to win is what keeps them motivated to get to the track each weekend. Even though the team struggled last weekend at Dover and finished 23rd, the No. 22 GO TEXAN | AM Technical Solutions Chevrolet team has proven time and time again, especially in 2020 that they are able to bounce back in a competitive fashion. “Dover was a tough weekend for us, but it will make us better for the long haul,” said driver Austin Wayne Self. “We’re always learning with these trucks and Eddie and I are always still learning things together as driver and crew chief. “Dover is behind us though and we’re focused on Gateway this weekend and the chance to get there and spoil the party.” As for World Wide Technology Raceway, the Austin, Tex. native will make his fourth career-start at the 1.25-mile oval. With an average finish of 20.3 with starts in 2016, 2018 and 2019 and two top-17 finishes – the 24-year-old is eager to improve and propel his AM Racing team into the spotlight. “Gateway can definitely be a challenging track because the corners are so different,” said Self. “It really wears on the handling, but it makes you feel like you need something different for every corner. “With this new formula, we should start somewhere around 20th and hopefully we can make some good forward progress in the opening stage that sets the tone for the final two stages. Of course, we’re hungry to win – but if we can’t find ourselves in that position to win, we’ll take a top-10 finish and look ahead to Darlington.” Should the team fall short of earning a Playoff spot, it will continue to be business as usual for the AM Racing team as Self expects the upward performance trend to continue to climb aboard his No. 22 GO TEXAN | AM Technical Solutions Chevrolet Silverado from now until Phoenix (Ariz.) Raceway in November. “We’re a relatively small team, but we’ve been making some big strides this season with our heart and passion of racing,” added Self. “We have a lot of people, including our partners who are devoted to our race team and focused on seeing our team succeed not only in 2020 but as we start to think ahead to 2021.” In 97 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 18.5 during his five years of competition. The Austin, Texas native is nestled 17th in the championship standings with 10 races remaining. The Gateway 200 presented by CK Power (160 laps| 200 miles) is the 14th of 23 NASCAR Gander RV & Outdoors Truck Series races on the 2020 schedule. The 35-truck field will take the green flag on Sun.

  17. AM Racing, Austin Wayne Self ready to tame Monster Mile DOVER, Del: Bouncing back in spectacular fashion from their late-race mishap at Michigan with a season-high 11th place run last Sunday at the Daytona (Fla.) International Speedway Road Course, Austin Wayne Self and his AM Racing team head to Dover (Del.) International Speedway determined to deliver a top-10 finish in Friday afternoon’s KDI Office Technology 200. Switching gears from road racing to short track racing, Friday’s 200-lap slugfest is the first of five consecutive races with the track length under 1.5-miles and taking the series’ through the end of their first race of the Playoffs next month at Bristol (Tenn.) Motor Speedway. While looking for a Playoff spot by virtue of a victory in the NASCAR Gander RV & Outdoors Truck Series (NGROTS), Self and his Eddie Troconis-led team have been showcasing speed over the past six weeks which undoubtedly puts them as a sleeper should the carpet unravel, the dots connect and luck on their side over the next four races. “I’m really proud of this AM Racing team,” said Self. “While Michigan was a bummer with our finish, our performance was something to be proud of. Last weekend at Daytona we were able to showcase that whether big track, small track or road course – we have speed in our No. 22 GO TEXAN | AM Technical Solutions Chevrolet Silverados and it has our team upbeat about this next stretch of races.” Self returns to Dover where he has three previous starts in the NASCAR Gander RV & Outdoors Truck Series, including a track-best of 15th in 2018. “Dover is a cool race track with a lot of banking but it’s a place where I feel like you have to be aggressive in order to have a good finish,” said Self.” “Track position is important at a place like Dover and while we’ll be likely starting mid-pack again based on the formula, it will be important for us to use the start and restarts to our advantage to get as many positions as we can. Sometimes, the race take a long green-flag look to it and others it’s a caution-fest, so you have to be prepared for anything. “I’ve never been to Dover without practice or qualifying, so we’re going to start with our basics and what we learned last year there and hope we can build off that for the rest of the race.” Of course, the goal is to try and put the Statesville, N.C.-based AM Racing team in Victory Lane before the Playoffs launch at Bristol, but the Austin, Tex. native says if his team doesn’t make a Playoff berth this year – he expects the performance trend to continue to climb aboard his No. 22 GO TEXAN | AM Technical Solutions Chevrolet Silverado from now until Phoenix (Ariz.) Raceway in November. “We’re a relatively small team, but we’re making big strides with our heart and passion of racing,” added Self. “We have a lot of people, including our partners who are devoted to our race team and focused on seeing our team succeed not only in 2020 but as we start to think ahead to 2021.” In addition to primary partners GO TEXAN and AM Technical Solutions, AIRBOX Air Purifier, Don’t mess with Texas, CForce Bottling Company, Flying Circle, Kreuz Market and Prasek’s will serve as associate partners in the 13th race of the year.

  20. AM Racing, Austin Wayne Self rides momentum to Kansas doubleheader KANSAS CITY, Kan: On the heels of their best finish of the 2020 NASCAR Gander RV & Outdoors Truck Series (NGROTS) season last weekend at Texas Motor Speedway, AM Racing and driver Austin Wayne Self travel to Kansas Speedway determined to earn a top-10 finish in a weekend that covers 400 miles of racing. With the coronavirus pandemic throwing the 2020 schedule into flux, Kansas Speedway is the site of the first doubleheader of the year with Self set to compete under the lights Friday night – then settle down back into his No. 22 GO Texan | AM Technical Solutions Chevrolet nearly 12 hours later. While the weekend will go by quickly for 268 laps of competition, the Austin, Texas native is eager to ride the recent wave of momentum and continue his trek forward. “I’m real proud of this AM Racing team,” said Self. “Everyone has worked hard and with a little luck, we’ve been able to produce some really satisfying efforts. We are not happy yet though. We believe we can be a consistent top-10 team if everything goes as planned. “The series is tough this year. A lot more competition than the past couple of years, but that is not necessarily a bad thing. It keeps us driven and focused to make sure we are bringing our A-game to the track. I’ve had some success at Kansas in the past and I hope both Friday night and Saturday afternoon bring us what we are looking for.” Before heading to Kansas, NASCAR announced this week that the remainder of the season will be conducted without practice or qualifying – setting the teams directly into race mode. While Self understands the decision, it puts a lot of pressure on a relatively small team like AM Racing. “We are a team that benefits from practice and even qualifying,” offered Self. “It helps us tremendously. However, it is 2020 and these are unprecedented times. This situation forces us to go back to our notes and Eddie (Troconis, crew chief) has done a rather good job getting the truck balanced fairly good. “We’ll make the best of the situation and fight forward.” Self will make his fifth Truck Series start at the 1.5-mile Kansas Speedway. In his previous four starts, he has a personal track best of 13th in 2018. He also has two ARCA starts from 2014 to 2015. “Kansas is very much a weather-sensitive track,” added Self. “It’s a fast place where getting your truck through the corner and off the bumps is important. It usually produces some good racing, especially on the restarts and with a lot on the line with the Playoffs closing in – I would expect more of the same this weekend.” Don’t mess with Texas, CForce Bottling Company, Flying Circle, Kreuz Market and Prasek’s will serve as associate partners in the ninth and 10th races of the year. In 92 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 18.4 during his five years of competition. The Austin, Texas native is nestled 18th in the championship standings with 15 races remaining.

  23. 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.

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.
