Running the ARCA race on Friday evening will be a big help in getting familiar with the layout of Watkins Glen and hopefully we can carry the momentum of the ARCA race to the Truck race on Saturday afternoon. I also want to thank The Safe Air Zone and Janitronics for jumping on board this weekend at Watkins Glen. Hopefully, it’s a strong weekend start to finish.” On Knoxville Raceway: “That was unfortunate. We had such a fast No. 22 GO TEXAN | AM Technical Solutions Chevrolet Silverado, but the bottom lane really became king there in Stage 3 and it became just a matter of bumper trucks on the restarts and we found ourselves on the wrong end very late in the race. It’s a shame. Ryan (Salomon, crew chief) and everyone brought me a great truck and Brett (Moffitt) was doing great too before he had his issues. I’m proud of the effort by this AM Racing team even if we don’t have the results to show for it. On to Watkins Glen and our last shot at a Hail Mary to make the Playoffs.” On 2021 Season: “This is it as far as the Playoffs are concerned. We will do what we can to put ourselves in a position to either contend for the win or even throw a Hail Mary to pull an upset. It is not going to be easy, but we won’t be going down without a fight. Even if we don’t make the Playoffs though, it’s been a strong season for the AM Racing team and we have a lot more to accomplish and prove before Phoenix in November.” Race Information: The United Rentals 176 (72 laps | 176.4 miles) is the 15th of 22 NASCAR Camping World Truck Series races on the 2021 schedule.

Motor Speedway Dirt Finish: “I had an absolute blast at Bristol with our No. 22 GO TEXAN | AM Technical Solutions Chevrolet Silverado. The track continued to change throughout the race – but luckily we adapted as best as we could and we still had a fast truck. I was bound and determined to bring the guys and our partners home a top-10 and that’s exactly what we accomplished. It was a great confidence booster for our team.” On 2021 Season After Five Races: “Honestly, I think we have proven a lot as a race team in 2021 but there is still more work to be done. Our trucks have been fast, but the series is extremely competitive this season. We just need to stay focused and come to the track worried about the performance of our No. 22 GO TEXAN | AM Technical Solutions Chevrolet and hope everything else will work out for itself.” Race Information: The ToyotaCare 250 (250 laps | 187.5 miles) is the sixth of 22 NASCAR Camping World Truck Series races on the 2021 schedule.

  19. Chase Briscoe – No. 04 Tex a Con Cut Stone/Huffy Ford F-150 Review - Pinty’s Dirt Truck Race at Bristol Motor Speedway No. 04 Tex a Con Cut Stone/Huffy News and Notes · Top 5 for Briscoe on Bristol Dirt: Chase Briscoe comes home with a 5th place finish for Roper Racing at the Pinty’s Dirt Truck Race at Bristol Motor Speedway. · Drive to the Front: Briscoe started 33rd in the race after the Heat races were cancelled due to weather. Briscoe used his dirt racing experience and picked his way through the field where he ran in the top 10 for the majority of the race. · Return at Richmond: Cory Roper will be back behind the wheel of the Roper Racing Ford when the Series returns on Apr 17th at Richmond. From the Driver’s Seat Chase Briscoe: “I had a lot of fun and had a really good Tex a con/Huffy Ford. It definitely felt like we were really good at the beginning of the race and able to come through the field pretty quickly. As the track went away, we just weren’t as good as the top 3. It was cool to get the Roper Racing guys a top 5 in our first start, they did a great job of preparing a fast truck from the beginning. Hopefully, we can do it again soon.” From the Pit Box Shane Whitbeck: “We had to start toward the back after the qualifying races were rained out. Chase did a great job of managing traffic and the changing track conditions to get to the front. We fought forward drive most of the day. We seemed to lose the forward drive we had in practice. We leveled off once we reached 4th place and stayed there the rest of the race. Still a great points day getting us back into the top 20. Huge thank you to Tex a Con, Huffy, and Carquest for making it possible.” Briscoe’s 2021 Camping World Truck Series Stats Starts Wins Top 5 Top 10 Poles Laps Led Avg. Start Avg.

Unfortunately, a late race speeding penalty hindered the team’s ability to recover after running out of laps. Self did, however, hustle from the back to a respectable 23rd place finish. Austin Wayne Self Pre-Race Quotes: On Bristol (Tenn.) Motor Speedway Dirt: “I’m energetic about running the Dirt Track this weekend at Bristol. I love racing on the dirt and overall have been pretty decent at it. The credit goes to my AM Racing team for bringing me a truck I can wheel. It is going to be important to utilize practice to the best of our ability, see what happens in the heat race and then just maintain our pace during the race to make sure we are in contention for a good finish when the checkered flag is thrown.” On Atlanta (Ga.) Motor Speedway Finish: “It certainly wasn’t the finish we were hoping for. We started out decent, but the lack of grip seemed to have hindered us throughout the race. The late-race speeding penalty didn’t help either. We made some gains in the final run to the finish, so I’m thankful we salvaged a somewhat decent day when it could have been a lot worse.” On 2021 Season After Four Races: “We have worked really hard at AM Racing during the opening stint to the season. We have been very solid. Our trucks have been fast, but the series is extremely competitive this season. We just need to stay focused and come to the track worried about the performance of our No. 22 GO TEXAN | AM Technical Solutions Chevrolet and everything else will work out. We are looking forward to the upcoming break after Bristol to regroup and then press the attack at Richmond in April.” To The Point(s): Entering Bristol, Self sits 14th in the championship standings. Just 40 points separate Self from fifth in the championship standings currently held by Stewart Friesen with 18 races remaining this season. AM Racing also secures 17th in the NCWTS owner standings.
