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.

Austin Wayne Self readies for third Homestead start in season-finale

HOMESTEAD, Fla. – On the heels of another top-20 finish last weekend at ISM Raceway, Niece Motorsports driver Austin Wayne Self (@AustinWSelf) heads to Homestead-Miami (Fla.) Speedway, site of Friday night’s Ford EcoBoost 200, hopeful to earn his second top-10 finish of the season.

Noted as one of the most consistent drivers in the second-half of the Truck Series season, Self, driver of the No. 22 GO TEXAN | AM Technical Solutions Chevrolet Silverado, is determined to better his season-high ninth-place in this year’s season-finale.

“2018 went by pretty fast,” said Self. “It’s been a really fun season driving these Chevrolet Silverado’s for Niece Motorsports and while our finishes didn’t always showcase our actual performance, I know as a team we grew so much from the start of the season to Homestead this weekend.

“Especially during the summer stretch and into the fall, our trucks were pretty good, and we had a lot of solid, consistent finishes. We were able to get a top-10 finish at Las Vegas in September and really felt like we could have had a top-five at Talladega – if not for being caught up in a last lap crash.

“But, that’s all behind us and the only thing that matters is Homestead this weekend and I’m focused on going and getting the job done.”

The Austin, Texas native has two prior starts at the 1.5-mile speedway. After finishing 25th in his track debut in 2016, Self picked up the pace considerably last November and earned a respectable 17th-place finish driving for Martins Motorsports.

On Friday night, Self thinks he can deliver his second top-10 run of the season.

“Homestead is a blast,” added Self. “It’s a fast race track with plenty of room to race. It’s also one of those tracks that is really temperature sensitive. We’ll practice and qualify during the day, but run at night, so we have to make sure we’re doing our part to keep our No. 22 GO TEXAN | AM Technical Solutions Chevrolet Silverado adjusted accordingly.

“It’s a fast-paced race. Restarts will be pretty important and exciting at the same time. I just need to be smooth on the wheel and rely on my team for good pitstops and hope when push comes to shove, we’re competing for a top-10 when the checkered flag waves.”

After 22 races, Self sits 12th in the series’ standings. He carries an average finish of 16.7 entering Homestead.

Like last year, the Texas Department of Agriculture’s GO TEXAN program and AM Technical Solutions will also support Self in his 63rd career start.

Austin Wayne Self readies third Phoenix start in penultimate race of 2018

AVONDALE, Ariz. – 21 races down and two to go.

With the checkered flag of the 2018 NASCAR Camping World Truck Series season near, Niece Motorsports driver Austin Wayne Self (@AustinWSelf) heads to ISM Raceway (Phoenix) for Friday night’s Lucas Oil 150 looking for his second top-10 finish of the year.

Self, 22, will make his third start at Phoenix’s 1.0-mile oval and while his prior finishes haven’t been enthusiastic, the driver is hoping to change the statistics aboard his No. 22 GO TEXAN | AM Technical Solutions Chevrolet Silverado in the penultimate Truck Series race of the season.

“Even though we haven’t had the results we were hoping for in the past at Phoenix, I’m hoping we can change our luck with a strong finish on Friday night,” said Self. “It’s hard to believe that there are just two races left in the year – but I feel like they are two races that we can go out and compete well and end our year on a high note.”

Phoenix has undergone a facelift for Friday night’s race and even though Self’s previous track time in Avondale will be beneficial, the Austin, Texas native says the tone of the race will change significantly — especially knowing the location of the start-finish line.

“Over the years, this race has always been one of the more exiting races,” added Self. “It’s the last race in the Playoffs before the championship race and it’s always been a race where some of the smaller teams can shine because of the track’s layout.

“But with the start-finish line now being located near Turn 2 – near the dog leg, it just pegs that excitement level and should produce some incredible racing.”

Gutting out his 17th top-20 of the season last Friday night at Texas Motor Speedway, Self says even though his Niece Motorsports team hasn’t produced as many top-10 finishes as they’ve wanted so far, he’s proud of the consistency his team has shown.

“We’ve had a lot of highlights this year with some strong performances – even if the finishes don’t always show it,” added Self. “I’d like to think if everything works out – we could add two more top-10s to our platter to close out the year. That’s our goal.

“My crew chief Arthur Haire and I really have been working well together over the past couple months and I think that shows in our consistency. I appreciate his hard work, and all of the Niece team and we’ll go into the final two races with a positive outlook and hope that mindset pays off with strong results on the track.”

After 21 races, Self sits 12th in the series’ standings. He carries an average finish of 16.6 entering Phoenix.

Like last year, the Texas Department of Agriculture’s GO TEXAN program and AM Technical Solutions will also support Self in his 62nd career start.

Austin Wayne Self ready to ‘Checkoff’ a strong run at Texas Motor Speedway

FORT WORTH, Texas – Anytime that NASCAR Camping World Truck Series (NCWTS) driver Austin Wayne Self (@AustinWSelf) comes home to compete at Texas Motor Speedway, it’s a big deal.

Much like the familiar phrase, “Everything is bigger in Texas” – Self, a native of Austin, Texas has high hopes for a big performance in Friday night’s JAG Metals 350.

The 22-year-old driver for Niece Motorsports will make his sixth start at the iconic 1.5-mile race track and hopes to deliver his first top-10 finish at the track, in the penultimate intermediate race of the season.

While aiming for his first top-10 finish at Texas, Self’s prior results have been firm, with three consecutive top-20 finishes, including a span of back-to-back top-15 finishes in 2017. The charismatic driver also hopes to improve on his 17th place run from the spring, one of 16 top-20 finishes this season.

“I always look forward to coming back to Texas,” said Self who sits 13th in the championship standings with three races remaining. “The race will be action packed, and I’m really upbeat about the strength of my Niece Motorsports team right now. Whether it’s a short track, a speedway or a superspeedway, we seem to have a lot of momentum, and that’s a good trait to have heading to one of my favorite places of the season.”

When Self comes to Texas, it’s more than just about him. It’s about his relationship with his Texas-based companies, including the United Sorghum Checkoff Program who will serve as the primary partner for Friday night’s race, elevating awareness of the benefits of American ethanol.

Self, a native of Austin, Texas, began his relationship with the Sorghum Checkoff and Texas Grain Sorghum Board last fall. Since then, the partnership has pinnacled to new levels and will continue throughout the 2019 season, building on the successful partnership between Self’s managing partner AM Racing and GO TEXAN.

Sorghum is the world’s fifth-most important grain crop and is grown on approximately 100 million acres worldwide, including approximately six million acres in the U.S. Currently, Texas and Kansas account for 80 percent of U.S. sorghum production.

The Sorghum Checkoff focuses on developing direct awareness of the benefits of using sorghum as a fuel and feedstock in the ethanol industry. This serves as the foundation of demand for the sorghum industry, as ethanol producers typically use about one-third  of the sorghum crop to produce clean-burning, high octane fuel.

“I’m proud of my relationship with the United Sorghum Checkoff Program, promoting the Sorghum: The Smart Choice™ brand,” added Self. “As we venture to provide a heathier environment, I’m proud to represent them in my home state and at Texas Motor Speedway.

“Sorghum is such a smart choice for ethanol, a clean-burning, high octane fuel with a strong connection to NASCAR. It’s our goal to educate everyone about its benefits and a strong effort on Friday night will help our mission.”

Tim Lust, United Sorghum Checkoff Program CEO, said the partnership with Self provides a platform to tell an important story about the value ethanol provides to the American consumer and rural communities.

“Promoting E15 is one of the most important things we can do for America’s farmers and agricultural interests,” he said. “NASCAR is a great platform as it enables us to reach the consumers making fuel purchase decisions while highlighting the fuel’s inherent value. NASCAR drivers have traveled 15 million miles on E15, so there is no better avenue for telling a pro-ethanol, pro-farmer story.”

After 20 races, Self sits 13th in the series’ standings. He carries an average finish of 16.6 entering Texas.

GO TEXAN, Don’t mess with Texas, CForce Bottling Company, Flying Circle and Kreuz Market will serve as associate partners in the 21st race of the year.

In 60 NCWTS races, the 2015 ARCA Racing Series Rookie of the Year has one top-five (second at Daytona 2017) and four top-10 finishes. The Texan maintains an average finish of 18.1 during his three years of competition.

Austin Wayne Self celebrates one-year anniversary with new partner at Kansas Speedway

KANSAS CITY, Kan. – Fresh off a strong top-15 finish this past weekend at Dover (Del.) International Speedway, Niece Motorsports driver Austin Wayne Self (@AustinWSelf) heads west to Kansas Speedway looking for his first top-10 finish of the season.

 

Friday night’s 37 Kind Days 250 at Kansas celebrates the one-year anniversary of Self’s, a native of Austin, Texas, first time piloting a Niece Motorsports truck.

 

The sixth race of the year also signifies the debut of a new partner aboard the team’s No. 22 Chevrolet Silverado for the second night race of the year.

 

CForce Bottling Company founded in 2015, by Gena and American martial artist, actor, film producer and screenwriter Chuck Norris, will serve as a major partner at Kansas Speedway.

 

CForce natural artesian water is bottled at the source. The Lone Wolf Spring, which supplies CForce’s pristine water, was discovered on the Norris family ranch in Navastoa, Tex. – adding another partner with Texas ties to Self’s team.

 

The water is over 23,000 years old, dating back to the last ice age. The water filters through volcanic rock and is then deposited into a deep sustainable aquifer. Through an engineered delivery system, the water travels directly from the source to the bottling plant, so that it remains untouched until it is opened.

 

“I’m very excited and proud to have this relationship with CForce Bottling Company,” said Self. “The Norris’s are amazing people and I’m glad to branch their product into the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series at Niece Motorsports.

 

“CForce tastes great and most of all, it keeps me plenty hydrated before and after a race. We had a good weekend at Dover and I’m hoping we can keep that momentum up at Kansas on Friday night.”

 

Speaking of Kansas, the 22-year-old will make his third NCWTS start at the 1.5-mile speedway, and hopes to better a 15th-place finish earned with Niece Motorsports last Spring. In addition to the Truck Series, Self has two additional starts in an ARCA car from 2014-2015.

 

“I’ve always enjoyed Kansas,” sounded Self. “It’s a fast mile-and-a-half track where handling is key and speed is essential. The trucks like to dance a lot on the intermediate tracks, especially in the draft – but we’ve done a good job working on our speedway program this year and I’m encouraged from our speed at Las Vegas – that we’ll be equally competitive under the lights.

 

“The biggest thing we’ll have to combat on Friday is weather. We’ll practice and qualify during the day, but take the checkered flag at night. Luckily, Cody (Efaw), my crew chief is very knowledgeable when it comes to track transition and he should be able to keep our No. 22 Don’t’ mess with Texas | CForce Chevrolet tuned up with the track, which hopefully brings us a good finish.”

 

Like last year, the Don’t mess with Texas campaign and AM Technical Solutions will also support Self in his 46th career start.

 

The Don’t mess with Texas campaign is part of the Texas Department of Transportation’s (TxDOT) litter prevention program, which includes Don’t mess with Texas, Adopt-a-Highway, and a grassroots partnership with Keep Texas Beautiful.

 

For more than 30 years, Don’t mess with Texas has made tremendous progress educating Texans about the impact of littering on the state’s economy, environment and physical landscape.

 

In 45 NCWTS races, the 2015 ARCA Racing Series rookie of the year has one top-five (second at Daytona 2017) and three top-10 finishes. The Texan maintains an average finish of 18.6 during his three years of competition.

Austin Wayne Self set to tackle Monster Mile with new partner

DOVER, Del. – After a six-week break from NASCAR Camping World Truck Series (NCWTS) competition, Austin Wayne Self (@AustinWSelf) and his Niece Motorsports team head to Dover International Speedway, eyeing their first top-10 finish of the season.

 

It’s been a busy-six-week hiatus for Self and his Statesville, N.C.-based team.

 

From preparing for the next three-week stretch, to announcing a new partnership, and even a strict exercise regiment in place for Self – the team feels on top of its game for Friday afternoon’s JEGS 200.

 

“It feels good to be getting back in the saddle,” says Self. “Since Martinsville, it’s been game-on in the shop with Cody (Efaw, crew chief) and the team diligently preparing our race trucks, and I’ve been working with T.J. Bell on a new workout program. Things are good.”

 

Self’s new workout routine should pay dividends in his second trip to Dover.

 

With the one-mile concrete oval notoriously earning its nickname as the “Monster Mile”, the Austin, Texas native remembers how physically demanding the track is – easily living up to its label.

 

“I remember how much wheel input it takes to race at Dover,” recalled Self. “It’s a very demanding race track, where you literally have to get up on the wheel and race. No doubt my workouts over the past month have me in better shape, and I’m hoping that will show behind the wheel.

 

“My first trip to Dover didn’t turn out as planned. We qualified okay, made some gains during the race and then experienced a mechanical failure. I honestly feel we’ll be better this second time around.”

 

For the fifth Truck Series race of the season, Self and Niece Motorsports will have the support of Flying Circle. Announced earlier this month, the Boerne, Texas based company will fly their colors aboard the team’s No. 22 Don’t mess with Texas Chevrolet.

 

As a trusted supplier of military specialty and travel bags to the U.S. Armed Forces for 30 years, Flying Circle’s mission is to provide service members and their families with dependable, functional, and versatile luggage.  The company is known within the military community for their commitment to offering quality products at a fair value and excellent customer service.

 

“Dover is the opening race for our new partnership with Flying Circle and we hope to give them a great debut at the Monster Mile,” sounded Self.

 

“I am a proud Texan and the addition of Flying Circle to our organization is a great opportunity for them to expand their horizons and connect with a fan base that is passionate about those who serve in the military. This partnership is a win-win.”

 

Flying Circle principal Jimmy Chittim says they are thrilled about joining Niece Motorsports and building a relationship with the 22-year-old Self.

 

“We are really excited about our partnership with Niece Motorsports and Austin,” he said. “We know that our customers love Truck racing and we love Truck racing, so it’s awesome we get to be a part of the action.”

 

Like last year, the Don’t mess with Texas campaign and AM Technical Solutions will also support Self in his 45th career start.

 

The Don’t mess with Texas campaign is part of the Texas Department of Transportation’s (TxDOT) litter prevention program, which includes Don’t mess with Texas, Adopt-a-Highway, and a grassroots partnership with Keep Texas Beautiful.

 

For more than 30 years, Don’t mess with Texas has made tremendous progress educating Texans about the impact of littering on the state’s economy, environment and physical landscape.

 

In 44 NCWTS races, the 2015 ARCA Racing Series rookie of the year has one top-five (second at Daytona 2017) and three top-10 finishes. The Texan maintains an average finish of 19.0 during his three years of competition.

Austin Wayne Self Speaks at Texas Grain Sorghum Producers Board Meeting

 

STATESVILLE, N.C. (Jan. 31, 2018) – Austin Wayne Self made a trip back home to Texas earlier this week to speak at the Texas Grain Sorghum Producers Board M

“I was very honored to be able to get to speak at the sorghum meeting Monday in Texas,” said Self.

 

“I was really excited sharing with everyone my goals for the upcoming year and how sorghum has such an impact on the NASCAR community.  I was very proud to have sorghum on the truck at Texas this past November and am hoping to do more with them in the future.”

 

In the ethanol industry, the United Sorghum Checkoff Program is focusing on developing direct awareness of the benefits of using sorghum as a fuel and feedstock.

 

Renewable fuel, which includes ethanol, serves as the foundation of demand for the sorghum industry.  Ethanol producers typically use about one-third (approximately 120 million bushels) of the sorghum crop to produce clean-burning, high octane fuel.

 

The Sorghum Checkoff’s renewables program is focused on expanding and developing opportunities for sorghum growers within the renewables space through a combination of research and market development.

 

Last year, sorghum was planted across about 1.9 million acres in Texas with millions of bushels harvested.  Texas was second in the top-five sorghum-producing states in 2016.

 

Self, a native of Austin, Tex. partnered with the Texas Grain Sorghum Board and the United Sorghum Checkoff Program last fall at his home track of Texas Motor Speedway.

 

“Being able to have the Sorghum guys at Texas this past November was great,” added Self.

 

“Everyone got to see and touch the truck as well as sit on the pit box on pit road during the race. I look forward to having Sorghum back at the race track here soon.”

 

Self will kick off the 2018 NCWTS season at Daytona International Speedway on Fri. February 16 with the NextEra Energy Resources 250 at 7:30 p.m. ET live on FOX Sports 1 (FS1).

Reflecting on 2017 Truck Series season only has Austin Wayne Self antsy for 2018

MOORESVILLE, N.C. – Just days after racking in another solid NASCAR Camping World Truck Series (NCWTS) performance at Homestead-Miami (Fla.) Speedway to close his second season of competition, Austin Wayne Self (@AustinWSelf) has spent the last few days reflecting on a year filled with plenty of accomplishments and motivation.

 

The Austin, Texas native opened the year with a career-best runner-up performance at Daytona (Fla.) Speedway driving for AM Racing. Self was driving the team’s second truck as the Mooresville, N.C. organization debuted a second-truck for the event and tallied two top-10 efforts in the NextEra Energy Resources 250.

 

Despite the strong start to the year, Self’s schedule remained fluid for much of the opening races of the year until the personable driver partnered with Niece Motorsports and Martins Motorsports in a collaborative effort with Faith Motorsports to complete in a majority of the 2017 schedule.

 

From his debut at Kansas Speedway with Niece which kicked off with a solid top-15 performance to a 17th place result in the Ford EcoBoost 200 at Homestead with Martins Motorsports, the Texan showcased his talent and proved that that his sophomore season was no slump.

 

The 21-year-old would go on to race in four more races for AM Racing which ended with a ninth-place effort on the road course at Canadian Tire Motorsport Park in Bowmanville, Ontario.

 

In all, the former ARCA Racing Series presented by Menards Rookie of the Year tallied one top-five, two top-10, eight top-15 and 13 top-20 finishes overall. Despite missing five races from February to Nov., Self still placed 15th overall in the championship standings.

 

Whether it was his family-owned team or racing with two new organizations determined to enhance their on-track performance product, Self proved that he was worthy to be in the seat and continued to develop his craft.

 

“We certainly have a lot to be thankful for this season,” said Self. “To open our year up with a second-place finish at Daytona – almost a win. That’s pretty incredible. I was proud of that.

 

“We skipped a couple races and came back to Kansas with Niece and I think I proved to others that no matter what truck I’m in – I leave nothing on the table and work hard to develop the best finish possible week in and week out.”

 

Other highlights in the year included a 12th place result at Charlotte (N.C.) Motor Speedway and the same at Texas Motor Speedway.

 

On his home turf, Self saw the opportunity for at the time would have been his second top-10 finish of the season end in smoke and crunch after tangling with another truck on the last lap.

 

Still, despite the outcome, Self says it was one of the more pivotal races in 2017.

 

“When I look back at the spring Texas, our truck was bad to the bone. We’re very fortunate enough to have a truck that is backed with a lot of help from Texas-based partners and supporters and we were giving them a show.

 

“I was able to climb from the back and maintain a comfortable spot inside the top-10 until I spun on the last lap going for another position.

 

“I was pretty bummed afterwards, but my team rallied behind me and they told me they would rather me wreck a truck while going for seventh than bring home a truck hovering in 25th. I never forgot that and it was pretty much game on from there.”

 

With another solid effort to bring down the curtain to his sophomore season, Self says he’s eager to start work on next season – which was previously announced he’ll run for Niece Motorsports’ No. 22 Chevrolet truck for his junior year of competition.

“I’m ready to go,” Self added. “You know, I’m very fortunate. I have a lot of great partners that have allowed me to thrive this season and they’re all coming back next year.

 

“Without the support of Don’t mess with Texas, GO TEXAN, AM Technical Solutions and B&D Industries Inc. – there would be no Austin Wayne Self on the race track. We’re working hard on some awesome things both on and off the track next year and it’s hard to believe that Daytona will be here in less than 90 days.”

Additional marketing partnership(s) at Niece Motorsports for Self are forthcoming.

In 18 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 earned one top-five, two top-10, eight top-15 and 13 top-20 finishes respectively en route to a 15th place finish in the championship standings.

Austin Wayne Self seeks phenomenal finish at Phoenix Raceway

AVONDALE, Ariz. – With the penultimate NASCAR Camping World Truck Series (NCWTS) race on deck this weekend at Phoenix (Ariz.) Rac
eway, Austin Wayne Self (@AustinWSelf) steers west with his Martins Motorsports team hoping for a phenomenal finish in Friday night’s Lucas Oil 150.

 

The Austin, Texas native returns to Martins Motorsports on the heels of a solid top-15 finish this past weekend at Texas Motor Speedway with Niece Motorsports, but the Texan hopes he’s able to carry that momentum in his 17th race of the season.

 

“Texas was a good boost for me,” said Self who locked his 12th top-20 finish of the season. “Everyone worked hard and it paid off with a solid finish. But, I’m excited to be back with the Martins Motorsports gang and getting another shot at Phoenix.”

 

Friday night’s race will be Self’s second start at the 1.0-mile race track where last year he qualified 29th but methodically worked his way forward to post a respectable 22nd place effort in a collaboration event with Bolen Motorsports.

 

This weekend however, Self believes anything less than a top-20 finish is a disappointment for himself and his Mooresville, N.C.-based team.

 

“Phoenix took a little to get used to but I felt like I adapted well as the race wore on,” added Self, driver of the No. 44 Don’t’ Mess with Texas Chevrolet. “It’s classic short track racing with some massive speed in the corners, especially Turns 3 and 4.

 

“These Martins Motorsports guys have really shined this season, especially when it comes to short tracks. I really thought we were going to have a good showing at Martinsville Speedway two weeks ago, but our day ended short with engine failure.

 

“Heading to Phoenix though, I think we can pick up the pieces and rebound in a fashionable way that carries us to the season finale next weekend at Homestead-Miami Speedway.

 

For Friday night’s race, Self is thrilled to welcome B&D Industries Inc., as a major associate marketing partner for the 22nd race of the season.

 

Based in Albuquerque, N.M., B&D Industries Inc. was founded in 1955 and offers specialized expertise in electrical, plumbing, technologies and HVAC systems, including construction, operation, maintenance and repair services.

“B&D has been a great supporter of mine and I appreciate them stepping up to the plate. It sure would be nice to reward them with my third top-10 finish of the season Friday night.”

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 39th 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 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, eight top-15 and 12 top-20 finishes respectively.

 

The Lucas Oil 150 (150 laps / 150 miles) is the 22nd of 23 NASCAR Camping World Truck Series races on the 2017 schedule. Practice begins on Fri., Nov. 10 from 9:00 a.m. – 10:50 a.m. Qualifying is set for later in the day beginning at 3:30 p.m. The 32-truck field will take the green flag shortly after 6:30 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 Mountain (MT).
