Chicagoland Speedway Race Notes:mis

Austin Wayne Self (AWS) drove his No.22 AM Technical Solutions – TechLine Manufacturing Toyota Tundra to a 17th place finish Friday night at Chicagoland Speedway.  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.”

Mooresville, NC (September 1, 2016) – AM Racing is teaming up with TechLine Manufacturing, an industrial support manufacturer for the 2016 and 2017 NASCAR Season . Joining other Industrial and Construction partners such as AM Technical Solution, JB Henderson and B&D Electric, TechLine Mfg is the latest company to take advantage of the ‘Commercial Representation’ business model offered by AM Racing.

TechLine Mfg, a company based out of Spanish Fort, Alabama, is one of the nation’s leading manufacturers of tubing and instrument support systems. With over 30 years in  industry, TechLine Mfg has prided themselves on Professionalism, Quality, Customer Service and Integrity.

“The value of AM Racing’s unique Business to Business Model is distinct and measureable,” says Richard Lacey, Executive Vice President of TechLine Mfg. “We are very excited about the new relationships and opportunities it affords our TechLine Mfg team and family of products.”

Our growing family of Industrial and Construction partners are constructing the leading edge technology facilities of tomorrow here in America, as well as abroad. These facilities and the industries they serve need high quality, innovative products and services to achieve ever increasing performance objectives.

More impressive is the patented assembly elements that substantially reduce installation time directly impacting cost and schedule. I expect this system will provide huge benefit to our Data Center clients as it is specifically designed to transition data and power cables from ladder tray to point of use.”

Through the remainder of the 2016 NASCAR Camping World Truck Series, TechLine Mfg will be an associate partner on the No. 22 AM Racing Toyota Tundra. In addition, TechLine Mfg is committed to as an associate partner for the entire 2017 NCWTS season.

Canadian Tire Motorsports Park Race Notes:

Austin Wayne Self, driver of the No.22 Go Texan/Bucee’s Toyota, started the action packed weekend off with an engine change following Final Practice on Saturday afternoon. Forced to start in the rear of the field for Sunday’s Silverado 250, the team took advantage of some extra practice during Qualifying.

AWS had one goal – keep the No. 22 Go Texan/Bucee’s Toyota out of trouble. Crew Chief Rick Ren made a good call on Lap 7 to keep the Rookie driver out, allowing him to gain valuable track position. Throughout the remainder of the race, Austin battled a strong field of trucks, but was able to remain in the Top 15 for most of the day, reaching as high as 2nd place at one point.

Just as the laps were winding down, and AWS was holding on to a solid Top 10 finish, a blown right rear tire caused the team to have to pit late in the running. Restarting 29th. Self fought to gain seventeen positions in two laps, moving him into 12th, before an on-track incident led to another blown tire, coming out of Turn 10 on the Final Lap. Despite the set back, Austin was able to maintain control of the No. 22 Toyota, with only three good tires and come home with another Top 15 finish.

Canadian Tire Motorsport Park Post Race Quote:

“I am really proud of my entire No. 22 AM Racing team. We continue to fight every week to get my Toyota Tundra handling the way it should be on track. We’ve had some decent finishes the past couple weeks, but we’re fighting against some bad luck. I think I would have been able to get the best finish of the year, if it wasn’t for the blown tire. We’ll continue to learn, and move on to Chicagoland in a couple weeks.” -Austin Wayne Self

Austin Wayne Self, driver of the No.22 AM Technical Solutions Toyota, finished 16th in Saturday’s Camping World Truck Series (NCWTS) campaign at Michigan International Speedway, giving the rookie driver his seventh top-20 finish of the season.

After starting 24th, AWS paced himself early – tucking into the lead draft at the onset of the 100-lap event on Michigan’s 2-mile surface.  Riding most of the race comfortably inside the top-20, Self, began his ascent towards the front by the midway point cracking the top-10 inside the final 20-laps.  Moving up to eighth and eyeing a career best finish, Self-restarted from the fourth row on the final restart of the race.  After a long caution, Self would get a strong jump, entering turns one and two clean, Self would race hard down the backstretch until getting washed up the race track in turn three with less than five laps remaining.  Keeping his Tundra off the outside wall, Self would regain his composure despite losing valuable track position and finishing 16th.

Michigan International Speedway Post Race Quote:

“We had a strong Toyota all day long and were there at the end.  I just lost the nose of the truck going into turn 3 on that final restart – costing us a solid finish.  It was a disappointing finish despite a really solid day.”    -Austin Wayne Self

    MIS track surface receives prep prior to NASCAR Weekend:

    Michigan International Speedway is doing some extra preparation to its track surface before the return of NASCAR action this weekend. The speedway has been utilizing a “tire dragger” – which is dragged along the surface to help apply extra rubber. It’s the same device used by Kentucky Speedway after its repave and Bristol after it “polished” the lower racing groove.

After starting 26th in his debut Bristol race the 20-year old Texan struggled to find balance during the weather delayed 200-lap event.  Working the preferred bottom grove of the race track, Self was unable to find the speed needed to pressure the front running trucks. Riding in the mid-pack the team pitted twice for fuel and air pressure adjustments hoping to give Self the advantage needed.  Settling for 21st, Self and his team prepare next for Michigan.

Bristol Motor Speedway Post Race Quote:

 

“Man we struggled here this week.  I just couldn’t get my AM Technical Solutions Toyota Tundra handling the way I needed it to.  I really liked the bottom groove, especially with the new surface and grip.  Unfortunately we just couldn’t get the speed we needed to move up.  I want to thank my guys for continuing to work hard.  We’ll go back to the shop this week and get ready for Michigan.

AM Racing and Win-Tron Racing Join Forces

joining forcesMooresville, NC (August 10, 2016) – NASCAR Camping World Truck Series (NCWTS) team AM Racing and ARCA Championship team, Win-Tron Racing, have joined forces for the remainder of the 2016 and for the full 2017 racing seasons.

 

The newly formed partnership leverages the cost efficiencies associated with shared assets and resources while exploiting the knowledge and experience of its two principle members, Kevin Cywinski and Tim Self. The joint effort will deliver cost efficient quality racing programs to selected drivers in both the NCWTS and the ARCA Series.

 

“Kevin has a proven track record in the racing business as evidenced by his multiple wins and Championships,” commented Tim Self, AM Racing team owner. “I bring efficient business processes and cost models along with a sales and marketing component that coalesces the Driver/Team/Sponsorship/Activation Model and delivers the best value for all partners.”

 

As the owner of Central Texas Speedway located in Kyle, Texas, Self has been involved in the motorsports industry for over fifteen years. Since 2013, Tim Self has acquired a, now successful, 3/8 mile asphalt track and started a new up and coming NASCAR CWTS team, with driver, Austin Wayne Self.

 

“Tim’s experience in business administration is outstanding albeit apparent, but his ability to build high value partnerships and bring new partners to the table is very exciting,” said Win-Tron Racing owner, Kevin Cywinski. “The foundation and team he has assembled in 2016 for their first, seven months is incredible, given that they started this season from scratch in December. Just look at all of the great brands they have been able to bring onboard. We are going to do some really great things together, both on and off the track, before the season is over.”

 

The co-branded operation will be based out of Win-Tron’s existing facility in Mooresville, NC, in the motorsports complex. In addition to providing full time racing programs, the consolidated entity will provide race teams support services such as Logistics, Transporation, Set Up and Pull Down.

 

Win-Tron is currently assembling a two car program for the 2017 ARCA Series, The No. 32 Toyota will have one full-time driver and the No. 33 Toyota will multiple developmental drivers behind the wheel. In addition, AM Racing will field the No. 22 Toyota Tundra full-time, with a second truck that will run a partial season.
