Self’s Chicago finish was his third consecutive top-20 finish of the season. After starting 25th, AWS was able to maintain a solid effort keeping his Tundra on the lead lap as the front runners set a blistering pace around Chicago’s 1.5 mile paved surface. After riding mid-pack throughout most of the race AWS propelled his way towards the front, racing his way into the 13th position inside the final 10-laps. Racing for position with two laps to go AWS was pushed up the track and out of the groove by the 71-truck. Losing several positions in the final laps AWS crossed the stripe at the checkered flag in the 17th position. Chicagoland Speedway Post Race Quote:“We didn’t get the finish we deserved today but a lot of credit goes out to my crew for getting us in position late in the race. We struggled early but made a big swing in the pits on that third stop and the truck came to life. We were just outside the top-ten when we got pushed out of the groove. I did everything I could from keeping it off the wall. I’m just happy we kept it off the wall and brought the truck home in one piece.” -Austin Wayne Self Last Race: American Ethanol 225 at Chicagoland SpeedwayNext Race:Next up on the NCWTS schedule is race No. 17 of 23 - The UNOH 175 from New Hampshire Motor Speedway on Saturday, September 24th at 1:00 P.M.
