After starting the race 23rd, Self quickly negotiated his No. 22 AM Technical Solutions | GO TEXAN Chevrolet Silverado RST through traffic to quickly move into the top-20.

Austin Wayne Self Pre-Race Quotes: On Texas Motor Speedway: “It always feels good to go back home to Texas Motor Speedway. We’ll be surrounded by a lot of support and that always feels comforting after the last batch of races we’ve had. “Hopefully, Texas can be the race that we turn the corner and get our season back on track. We really need to start making some serious progress forward if we’re even going to find ourselves anywhere near in contention to make the Playoffs. It’s likely going to take a Hail Mary at this point, but we’re up for going outside the box to change around our strategy and deliver a good finish at one of my favorite race tracks.” On 2022 Season: “We had a great first three races to the 2022 Truck Series season but have suffered bad luck in the last five races at COTA, Martinsville, the Bristol Dirt, Darlington and a so-so run at Kansas. The frustration level has certainly pegged but we are trying not to get down as a team because we realize we are bringing fast race trucks to the track. We will continue to fight to put our season back on the right path and hope it will mean that we have paid our dues for the rest of the year when it comes to bad luck.” The SpeedyCash.com 220 (147 laps | 220.5 miles) is the ninth of 23 NASCAR Camping World Truck Series races on the 2022 schedule.
