  1. 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. 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. Along with its signature mark in the shape of Texas, GO TEXAN celebrates, promotes and supports the business savvy and plainspoken grit Texas agriculture is known for throughout the world. AM Technical Solutions, Don’t mess with Texas, CForce Bottling Company, Flying Circle and Kreuz Market will serve as associate partners in the 17th race of the year. In 77 NGOTS 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 17.9 during his three years of competition. The Austin, Texas native is nestled 13th in the championship standings with seven races remaining.

  3. 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.

  4. 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.

  6. 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.

Self who will compete in Friday night’s Camping World 225 NASCAR Gander Outdoors Truck Series (NGOTS) race at Chicagoland is hopeful to run more ARCA races this season. “We’re still looking at the schedule, but I think you’ll see me in or a race or two more after Chicagoland,” added Self. “I know that Kevin (Cywinski, Win-Tron Racing owner) and Jamie (Jones, crew chief) have put together a very competitive car and I look forward to our chance to go out there and contend for my second career ARCA win.” Cywinski who serves as team manager of Self’s Gander Truck Series team says having Self compete in both races at Chicagoland will undoubtedly prove to be beneficial. “Austin will do us a great job at Chicagoland,” sounded Cywinski. “The extra seat time will allow Austin to stay focused and bring back some positive feedback to not only the ARCA program but also acquire critical track time that should prove to be beneficial for the Truck Series program this weekend too.” For more on Austin Wayne Self, please visit awsracing.com, like his Facebook page (Austin Wayne Self) or follow him on Twitter @AustinWSelf.

  8. 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.

  9. 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.

  10. 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.

  11. 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.

  12. 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. The Texas Roadhouse 200 presented by Alpha Energy Solutions (200 laps / 105.2 miles) is the 20th of 23 NASCAR Camping World Truck Series races on the 2017 schedule. Practice begins on Fri., Oct. 27 from 1:00 p.m. – 1:55 p.m., with a final practice session is set for 3:00 p.m. – 3:55 p.m. Qualifying is set for race day, Oct. 28 beginning at 10:00 a.m. The 32-truck field will take the green flag shortly after 1:00 p.m. with live coverage on FOX Sports 1 (FS1), the Motor Racing Network (Radio) and SiriusXM NASCAR Radio (Satellite Radio, Channel 90).

  13. 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.

  14. 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).

  15. 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. In 11 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, six top-15 and eight top-20 finishes respectively. The UNOH 175 (175 laps / 185.15 miles) is the 17th of 23 NASCAR Camping World Truck Series races on the 2017 schedule.

  16. 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. This is the same team that Self earned a career-best second place finish in the season-opening NextEra Energy Resources 250 at Daytona (Fla.) International Speedway in February. Austin Cindric won the Canada 250 followed by Kaz Grala (second), Noah Gragson (third), Justin Hayley, (fourth) and Ryan Truex (fifth).

  17. Austin Wayne Self carries momentum North of the Border to Canada BOWMANVILLE, Ontario – Fresh off a top-10 finish in his ARCA Racing Series presented by Menards return this past weekend at Road America (Wisc.), sophomore NASCAR Camping World Truck Series (NCWTS) driver Austin Wayne Self (@austinwself) heads to Canadian Tire Motorsport Park looking for his second top-10 finish of the season in Sunday’s Canada 250. Austin Wayne Self and his dad, Tim Self, at Michigan (courtesy of AM Racing PR) To help prepare the Austin, Texas native for Sunday’s race, AM Racing through their development partner Win-Tron Racing put Self back in ARCA competition for the first time since February 2016. Not missing a beat, Self practiced well, started outside the top-10 (based off practice speeds), but quickly raced into the top-10 and remained a factor throughout the 25-lap Road America 100. Self, in fact even recovered from being spun by another competitor in the final 10 laps of the race to earn a sixth-place finish. Carrying the momentum for his first ARCA top-10 finish in nearly two years, Self is craving more as he heads back to Canada’s 2.459-mile, 10-turn road course. “I’m excited to be back in Canada and get some more road racing experience under my belt,” said Self who returns to the AM Racing colors this weekend. “We had a really good run at Road America. If we had another lap or two, I feel like we would have been able to get a top-five, but we’ll take sixth and move ahead to this weekend’s race. “I’m in a groove now where I’m just excited to turn left and right. Road America is a technical track and Canadian Tire offers some of that too. Canada is a fast track with some sweeping corners and even a little elevation change. It gives you the thrill and spill that you’re looking for. Hopefully, it’s a good race for our AM Racing team.” It’s just not a big weekend for Self who has been traveling North of the Border as week as a tourist, but he’ll celebrate the marriage of his aunt Connie who is getting married at the track on Saturday to James Ohman. “I gotta say it’s pretty neat to have members of my family at the race track this weekend to not only watch me race, but be involved in a family wedding too,” offered Self. “I’m happy for my aunt Connie and my uncle James. We have a big surprise for them this weekend and can’t wait to share.” Still, with enjoying the blessings of laughter and love with the marriage of his family this weekend in Canada, Self admits that his heart is been breaking for his friends and family back home in Texas who are still feeling the effects of Hurricane Harvey who slammed into the state dropping record inches of rain which has cause massive and catastrophic flooding. “Austin wasn’t a direct hit, but there were several cities around it that were hit with the unthinkable,” said Self. “I keep seeing all the pictures and videos of the destruction and it just hits you on a really emotional level. Texas is full of great people whose lives will forever be changed because of this event. Over the next couple of weeks, we’ll do our best to show our support and offer assistance.” To lead the way in standing strong with his home state, Self’s truck will carry “Texas Flood: We are One American Family!” a reminder that what we are witnessing in Texas is what being a true American is all about. Americans across the United States have come to the rescue and aid of people they don’t even know to help make a difference. Self hopes the signage on his truck will remind others to continue their selfless and thoughtful acts not only in the weeks, but months and potentially years to come. In one prior start in Bowmanville, Self qualified 22nd and finished a respectable 15th. In addition to AM Technical Solutions, Self will have additional marketing partnership support from Don’t mess with Texas, Accu-Tech, Snap-Track, AM Technical Solutions, Superior Essex and Legrand for his 10th race of the season and 32nd of his NCWTS career. The Canada 250 (64 laps / 157.37 miles) is the 14th of 23 NASCAR Camping World Truck Series races on the 2017 schedule.

  18. Austin Wayne Self excited for ARCA return in Road America debut ELKHART LAKE, Wisc. – Revving up for back-to-back road courses, Austin Wayne Self will make a return to the ARCA Racing Series presented by Menards to compete in Sunday afternoon’s Road America 100 driving for AM Racing and their development partner Win-Tron Racing. Noted as a huge fan of road courses, Self will drive the No. 33 Don’t mess with Texas Toyota Camry at Road America’s 4.048 course and look for his first top-10 finish in ARCA competition since August 2015. “I’m really grateful for this opportunity to drive for Win-Tron Racing and carry the Don’t mess with Texas colors this weekend at Road America,” said Self. “I love competing in ARCA. It’s a great series with a lot of competition and talent. It’s going to be a fun weekend.” AM Racing and Self are utilizing the ARCA road race to prepare the Austin, Texas native for his return to Canadian Tire Motorsport Park where he’ll compete in the Canada 250 on Sept. 3 in the No. 22 Toyota Tundra. “For me, road racing is about rhythm,” Self explained. “While road course racing can sometimes be a challenge, it’s a challenge I embrace. With all the components that go into road course racing, I feel that getting yourself into a routine where you’re comfortable with the throttle, elevation, shifting and technique – I feel like it will put me in a better position to be competitive in Canada next weekend.” Self, 21, will make his first ARCA start since the season-opening race at Daytona International Speedway in Feb. 2016. In 46 career ARCA starts, Self has one win (Winchester 2015), 13 top-five and 30 top-10 finishes. He also finished a career best second in the championship standings in 2015. On road courses in ARCA, the Austin, Texas native has three starts with two top-10 finishes, including a career-high seventh at the New Jersey Motorsports Park road course also in 2015. Despite never maneuvering Road America’s 14-turn course, Self is keeping his expectations realistic for Sunday’s race. “I would be thrilled to have a top-10 finish,” said Self who will make his first ARCA start since Daytona 2016. “A lot of the same guys on this No. 33 ARCA team work on my truck, so it would a great boost for them to have a good finish at Road America and see if we can carry it to Canadian Tire next weekend.” Tyler Dippel will return to the driving duties at the DuQuoin State Fairgrounds on Sept. 4, while AM Racing development driver Justin Fontaine will return at Salem (Ind.) Speedway on Sept. 9 to complete the 2017 ARCA Racing Series season. The Road America 100 (25 laps / 101.25 miles) is the 15th of 20 races on the 2017 ARCA Racing Series presented by Menards schedule. Practice begins Sat., Aug. 26 with a forty-five-minute session planned from 8:50 a.m. – 9:35 a.m. Final practice has been etched in from 11:05 a.m. – 11:50 a.m. General Tire pole qualifying is set for later in the day at 5:10 p.m. The race is set to take the green flag the next day, Sun., Aug. 27 shortly after 12:00 p.m. The event will be tape-delayed on MAVTV, while ARCARacing.com will stream live timing and scoring throughout the weekend’s activities.

  19. Austin Wayne Self aims to keep momentum rolling in Thunder Valley BRISTOL, Tenn. – Off to a strong start in his partnership with Martins Motorsports, Austin Wayne Self heads to Bristol (Tenn.) Motor Speedway looking to keep the momentum train rolling in Wednesday night’s UNOH 200. Courtesy of AM Racing PR After finishing 16th at Pocono (Pa.) Raceway aboard the No. 44 Don’t mess with Texas Chevrolet, the team took a weekend off and returned to Michigan International Speedway where the team qualified inside the top-20 and propelled to a solid 15th place finish in the LTi Printing 200. Now, the team heads to “Thunder Valley” where accomplishing another top-15 finish could be challenging, but a task that Self and his Mooresville, N.C-based team are ready to conquer. “Man, I’m so pumped to go to Bristol,” said Self who will make his ninth NASCAR Camping World Truck Series start of the season. “It’s a track that I think every driver looks at and circles on the calendar. Bristol is a fast place with a lot of speed and finesse but it’s a place that is incredibly fun to race at because of its tight quarters. We feel confident we can have a good finish with our No. 44 Don’t mess with Texas Chevrolet.” The Austin, Texas native will make his second trip to the 0.533-mile historic short track Wednesday night. Last summer, Self qualified 26th and finished 21st. This year, knowing a little more on how to tackle the “World’s Fastest Half Mile,” Self believes he can finish inside the top-20. “You know this week’s race is going to be interesting. Not only do the stages break up the race, but the track is going to put down the PJ1 TrackBite which is a substance utilized to create grip. We got a taste of that last year, but I think you’ll see it have a different affect this year, because everyone’s learned so much more about it. That will be a good thing and it should produce a good show for the fans on Wednesday night.” Of course, Self flashes back to his 2015 ARCA Racing Series win at Winchester Speedway, a track with similar characteristics to Bristol. “Man, it’s always nice to think back to Winchester,” added Self. “Yeah, the tracks are very similar, but Wednesday night’s race is going to be very stout when it comes to the competition so a finish inside the top-20 would feel like a win for sure.” In addition to AM Technical Solutions, Don’t mess with Texas will serve as an associate marketing partner for Self’s 31st 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. The UNOH 200 (200 laps / 100 miles) is the 14th of 23 NASCAR Camping World Truck Series races on the 2017 schedule. Practice begins on Wed., Aug. 16 from 9:00 a.m. – 9:55 a.m., with a final practice session is set for 11:00 a.m. – 11:55 a.m. Qualifying is set for later in the day beginning at 4:35 p.m. The 32-truck field will take the green flag shortly after 8:30 p.m. with live coverage on FOX Sports 1 (FS1), the Motor Racing Network (Radio) and SiriusXM NASCAR Radio (Satellite Radio, Channel 90).

  20. Austin Wayne Self looks for another solid finish at Michigan International Speedway BROOKLYN, Mich. – On the heels of a solid 16th place performance in their most recent race at Pocono (Pa.) Raceway, NASCAR Camping World Truck Series (NCWTS) sophomore driver Austin Wayne Self-will pilot Martin Motorsports’ No. 44 Don’t Mess With Texas Chevrolet in Saturday afternoon’s LTi Printing 200 at Michigan International Speedway. In Self’s seventh race of the season, the Austin, Tex. native qualified his No. 44 Chevrolet at a solid 21st and utilized the 60-lap race to maneuver his truck through the field to earn his fifth top-20 finish of 2017. As the series returns to action after a week off, Self heads for the 2.0-mile oval of Michigan International Speedway hoping he can continue to have a successful run in the truck operated by Martins Motorsports in collaboration with Faith Motorsports. “We had a very solid outing at Pocono and I’m looking forward to Michigan this weekend,” said Self. “We put the Pocono race together pretty quick and to see the team come of the box with some solid results was a gratifying moment for everyone.” “Hopefully, we can continue that at Michigan this weekend.” Self will make his second Truck Series start at the Brooklyn, Mich.-based track, but also carries experience in the Irish Hills with success in the ARCA Racing Series presented by Menards. Last August, Self qualified his AM Racing Toyota 24th, but methodically moved through the field and took 16th when the checkered flag flew. This year, Self is hoping for similar success again. “Michigan is a blast, especially with the trucks,” offered Self. “The track is so fast, especially with the smooth surface. I know that the race will go by quickly, but it will be important for us to stay on the lead lap and utilize the draft to our advantage.” “If we can have another good run on Saturday afternoon, it would be a great morale boost for this team as we head to Bristol next week for the Wednesday night race. I’m just thankful to be driving this No. 44 Don’t Mess With Texas Chevrolet.” In addition to AM Technical Solutions, Don’t mess with Texas will serve as an associate marketing partner for Self’s 30th 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. The LTi Printing 200 (100 laps / 200 miles) is the 13th of 23 NASCAR Camping World Truck Series races on the 2017 schedule.

  21. AM Racing Post-Race Recap - Austin Wayne Self, No. 22 Airflotek / Snap Track Toyota Tundra NASCAR Camping World Truck Series (NCWTS) - Kentucky Speedway / Buckle Up In Your Truck 225 Box Score Report Race No. 10 of 23 Stats: Started: 32nd Finished: 22nd Laps: 130 / 150 Status: Running Quick Recap: In his sixth NASCAR Camping World Truck Series (NCWTS) start of the season and fourth for AM Racing, driver Austin Wayne Self rallied from a broken fuel pump cable to earn a 22nd place finish in a late night at Kentucky Speedway this past Thursday night. After practicing well Wednesday, qualifying for the series was ultimately canceled as Mother Nature settled in around the 1.5-mile speedway throughout the evening on Thursday night, also pushing back the start of the race. Finally, under dry and cooler conditions, Self roared from his 32nd place starting position and comfortably set inside the top-25 before the conclusion of Stage 1 when a mechanical failure set the team to the garage. A quick diagnosis and the Mooresville, N.C.-based team found the fuel pump cable stopped functioning. After it was replaced, Self re-fired the engine on his No. 22 Airflotek / Snap Track Toyota Tundra and returned to the race 19 laps down. Electing to utilize the race as a test session, Self avoided further troubles during the remainder of the Buckle Up In Your Truck 225 and capitalized on attrition to finish 22nd, his track best at Kentucky Speedway in two races. Driver Quote: “Thursday night had the potential to be another big night for our AM Racing team. We really wanted to have a good showing for Airflotek, Snap Track and all of our supporters at Kentucky Speedway. Unfortunately, the fuel pump cable broke. That’s not something that happens very often, but the guys did a great job to diagnosis the issue and fix it quickly and we were still able to get back on track and compete for a majority of the race." “We knew that our potential for a good finish was out the window, but the opportunity to gain experience and try some things with our truck was still possible. Our finish wasn’t an indicator of our performance and I can’t wait to get back to another mile-and-half track soon, because I think we’ll impress again.” Event Notes: Austin Wayne Self finished 22nd in the Buckle Up In Your Truck 225 at Kentucky Speedway, his second career NASCAR Camping World Truck Series start at the 1.5-mile oval. The effort betters his 27th place finish in Sparta last July. In six NASCAR Camping World Truck Series races this season, Austin Wayne Self has collected one top-five and four top-15 finishes, including a career-best second at Daytona (Fla.) International Speedway in February. Christopher Bell won the seventh annual Buckle Up In Your Truck 225 followed by Brandon Jones (second), Justin Haley (third), Austin Cindric (fourth) and Noah Gragson (fifth). Next Race: Aspen Dental Dirt Derby at Eldora Speedway on Weds., July 19. To learn more information on AM Racing please visit amracingteam.com.

  22. Solid finishes keep Austin Wayne Self upbeat looking ahead MOORESVILLE, N.C. – AM Racing driver Austin Wayne Self wasn’t sure what exactly to expect in his sophomore season of NASCAR Camping World Truck Series (NCWTS) competition, but solid runs have propelled the Austin, Tex. native forward and eager to get into the summer stretch. Courtesy of AM Racing PR Self’s year started out in a huge way with a second-place finish in the season-opening NextEra Energy Resources 250 at Daytona (Fla.) International Speedway. Not only did the former ARCA Racing Series Rookie of the Year mount his best finish, but his team in their debut of two trucks left the 2.5-mile superspeedway with both trucks inside the top-10. While their next outing at Martinsville Speedway on April 1 didn’t turn out as hoped, the team led by crew chief Bill Henderson and team consultant Rick Ren refused to let a setback stand in their way. So, they made the two-hour trip back home and went to work. And they worked hard. Getting an opportunity to keep in the seat for his next planned race at Charlotte (N.C.) Motor Speedway, Self teamed up with Niece Motorsports where at Kansas Speedway he drove the team’s Chevrolet to a top-15 finish. The following week in his AM Racing return, the 22-year-old qualified 18th and muscled his way to a respectable 12th place finish. In his most recent race at Texas Motor Speedway, Self looked to his hometown track not only to make some noise but prove that the team’s Charlotte performance was no fluke on an intermediate track. Armed with support from fellow Texans in his home state, Self qualified a career-best 15th, quickly bolted inside the top-10 and remained amongst the lead pack for the entire race, before a loose race truck got the most of the young driver on the last lap of race while battling for sixth. Still, while Self’s night ended on the front stretch grass in the winstaronlinegaming.com 400, there wasn’t a grim face afterwards. His performance last Friday night could easily be dubbed as one of the best yet by the racer who says he now carries tons of momentum moving forward. “We had such a great truck on Friday night,” recalled Self. “I sincerely appreciate all the hard work of the AM Racing team and all of the support from our marketing partners. To have all of this support at what I consider to be my home track means a lot – but to run as well as we did meant even more. I’m still learning – but I have learned a bunch and it paid off with a strong showing. We didn’t get the finish that we wanted, but it was still something that we could walk away from and be proud of. I can’t wait to get back on the track soon.” Mixing it up with veterans Matt Crafton, Johnny Sauter and Timothy Peters, Self said he enjoyed racing in circles amongst the best of the best and hopes he is starting to earn their respect. “We’ve worked hard to build AM Racing into a competitive operation,” Self said. “I felt privileged having the opportunity to race and compete with guys like Crafton and Sauter – but also duke it out with the younger guys like myself who are trying to make a name. We got a sniff of that at Charlotte but at Texas it was all out.” “I am so pumped about getting back in a truck, I really am.” To learn more information on AM Racing please visit amracingteam.com.

  23. Austin Wayne Self readies Texas Motor Speedway return FORT WORTH, Tex. – Riding the momentum from two consecutive top-15 finishes in his most recent NASCAR Camping World Truck Series (NCWTS), AM Racing driver Austin Wayne Self seeks to keep the momentum train rolling in Friday night’s winstaronlinegaming.com 400 at Texas Motor Speedway. Courtesy of AM Racing PR Not only is Texas Motor Speedway considered Self’s hometown track, but the 1.5-mile speedway is the site of one of Self’s career-best finishes on an intermediate track last June. “I can’t wait to get back on the track this week,” said Self, a native of Austin, Texas. “We’ve had a lot of good things happen with our AM Racing team over the last month or so and we really need to carry this momentum to Texas on Friday night. It an important race for a lot of reasons, I consider Texas Motor Speedway to be my home track and I always strive to do better than I did last time. Not only for myself but also for the team and partners that we have on board.” Armed with a similar truck that he raced at Charlotte (N.C.) Motor Speedway last month, Self says he hopes he can take with what he learned in his 12th-place finish and apply it at Texas. “I have a couple starts in a truck at Texas, but this weekend will be a little different,” Self explained. “Texas has an adjusted layout and new asphalt. That has the tendency to make things a little interesting. Thankfully, we have three practice sessions on Thursday to dial in our No. 22 Toyota Tundra and see what we can come up with for the race. As good as we ran at Charlotte, I would be disappointed with anything less than another top-15 finish.” Self, 22, will make his third career NCWTS start at Texas Motor Speedway with a track best of 13th after starting 18th last June. Earlier this year Self scored his career-best finish in trucks with a runner-up showing in the season-opening NextEra Energy Resources 250 at Daytona (Fla.) International Speedway in Feb.

  24. Austin Wayne Self to drive for MBM at Charlotte Motor Speedway CONCORD, N.C. – On the heels of a 12th place finish last Friday night in the N.C. Education Lottery 200 at Charlotte (N.C.)

Courtesy of AM Racing PR “I’m looking forward to the opportunity to drive for MBM Motorsports Saturday at Charlotte,” said Self. “I appreciate the phone call from car owner Carl Long asking me to come and compete.

  25. Austin Wayne Self, No. 22 AccuTech / Snap Track / Don’t Mess With Texas Toyota Tundra report Charlotte (N.C.) Motor Speedway / N.C. Education Lottery 200 - Race No. 5 of 23 Stats: Started: 19th Finished: 12th Laps: 134 / 134 Status: Running ​Courtesy of AM Racing PR Quick Recap: AM Racing driver Austin Wayne Self rallied from a speeding penalty and late-race contact with another competitor to finish a strong 12th in Friday night’s N.C. Education Lottery 200 at Charlotte (N.C.) Motor Speedway in the No. 22 AccuTech / Snap Track / Don’t Mess With Texas Toyota Tundra. After qualifying 19th, Self ran as high as 10th before being slipping back to 16th inside the final 15 laps of the race. When the caution waved with seven laps to go, crew chief Bill Henderson brought the Austin, Tex. native down pit road for tires, a touch of fuel and a slight chassis adjustment to combat a loose No. 22 AM Racing Toyota. Rocketing from 16th, with three laps to go, Self utilized the draft and even some side-drafting over the final four and a half miles to edge Austin Cindric for a 12th place finish, a career-best effort on an intermediate track bettering a 13th place run at Texas Motor Speedway last year. Friday night’s result was the second consecutive top-15 finish for Self after finishing 15th last weekend at Kansas Speedway for Niece Motorsports. Driver Quote: “It was a good night for our No. 22 AccuTech / Snap Track / Don’t Mess With Texas Toyota. We kept adjusting the truck throughout the day, from qualifying to the race and had a pretty good truck during the race. We worked hard to muscle our way from 19th and contended for a top-10 finish before sliding back to 16th late in the game.” “When the caution came out, we took advantage of the opportunity to pit and it paid off. Really stoked to get a good finish for AccuTech in their debut in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series and carry some momentum to some of our upcoming races.” “I also wanted to say I’m glad Regan Smith is alright. It was just hard racing and tight quarters. I didn’t mean to get into him. I hate that happened, but just glad he is OK.” Event Notes: Austin Wayne Self finished 12th in the N.C. Education Lottery 200, his second career NASCAR Camping World Truck Series start at the 1.5-mile oval. The effort betters his 21st place finish at Charlotte last May. In three NASCAR Camping World Truck Series races this season, Austin Wayne Self has collected one top-five and three top-15 finishes, including a career-best second at Daytona (Fla.) International Speedway in February. Kyle Busch won the 15th annual N.C. Education Lottery 200 followed by Johnny Sauter (second), Christopher Bell (third), Ryan Truex (fourth) and Timothy Peters (fifth). Next Race: Bar Harbor 200 at Dover (Del.)
