POWER OF TEXAS TEAMWORK ON DISPLAY IN NEW PARTNERSHIP BETWEEN AM RACING AND GO TEXAN

AUSTIN, Texas (Jan. 28, 2016) –  The power of Texas teamwork is on display again as AM Racing has partnered with The Texas Department of Agriculture for the 2016 NASCAR Camping World Truck Series season, the team announced on Thursday.

AWS12AM Racing and driver Austin Wayne Self will promote the Texas Department of Agriculture’s GO TEXAN campaign. AM Racing is a Texas-based company and Self, 19, a Rookie of the Year candidate who finished second in ARCA Series competition in ’15, is an Austin native who exemplifies what pride in the Lone Star State is all about.

“I’m excited and thankful to have The Texas Department of Agriculture’s GO TEXAN campaign on board our No. 22 Toyota Tundra this season, and know they’ll be a valuable member of the AM Racing family,” Self said. “I’m a big supporter of Texas-made products and believe strong teamwork drives success, and that’s what GO TEXAN represents. I look forward to working with them in 2016.”

The GO TEXAN campaign, with its signature logo in the shape of Texas, is designed to encourage consumers around the world, including brand-loyal NASCAR fans, to seek and purchase Texas-made products. GO TEXAN membership shines a marketing spotlight on businesses based in the Lone Star State by affording them exclusive branding and networking opportunities with other member companies.

“We’re so excited for our GO TEXAN program to partner with AM Racing to spread the word about Texas agriculture and the many wonderful products that are made right here in the Lone Star State,” Agriculture Commissioner Sid Miller said. “GO TEXAN and AM Racing both have roots that run deep in Texas, so it was a natural fit for GO TEXAN to hop on board with AM Racing to promote the best of Texas and the many businesses that call our great state home. Texans have an incredible sense of pride for our state and our heritage, and I’m excited for NASCAR and AM Racing fans all across the country to discover why they should GO TEXAN.”

The GO TEXAN initiative began in 1999 with a focus on Texas agricultural products. The program later expanded to include shrimp and Texas wine, and now features Texas-made products of all kinds.

AM Racing makes its foray into NCWTS competition this season with strong early support from a rapidly-expanding family of Texas-based partners, including AM Technical Solutions, Louie Mueller Barbecue, Texas Tea and the Don’t mess with Texas litter-prevention awareness campaign.

Look for the iconic GO TEXAN logo at the track and during televised coverage of NCWTS events this season on FS1.

AM TECHNICAL SOLUTIONS AND FAMILY OF TEXAS PARTNERS TO SUPPORT AUSTIN WAYNE SELF IN NCWTS

Austin Wayne Self roars into his rookie season in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series in 2016 with strong support from a circle of Texas-based companies led by AM Technical Solutions, who announced their return as a primary sponsor for Self.

Austin-based AM Technical Solutions (AMTS), a leading construction management, project management and facility solutions firm for high-tech markets, has been a primary partner of Texas native Self’s for five seasons, including his Rookie of the Year campaign in the ARCA Racing Series in 2014 and his runner-up finish in the ARCA championship points standings (including a win at Winchester) last season.

AWS“We’re excited to continue our support of Austin as he competes in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series in 2016,” said Kelly McAndrew, Chairman of AM Technical Solutions. “Austin’s work ethic and dedication to his racing career are a perfect fit with our company values. We’ve witnessed his continued improvement and success as a driver, and he’s become part of the AMTS family. We believe our partnership with Austin in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series will provide a great platform for additional brand exposure for AMTS, especially as Austin battles for Rookie of the Year status in the No. 22 Toyota Tundra. We can’t wait to get started.”

AMTS provides diverse integrated solutions across a facilities life cycle to include new cleanroom construction, integrated construction management, total quality programs, capital asset solutions, and cleanroom certification and testing.

“I’m proud to have AM Technical Solutions on board with me again this season in the NCWTS,” Self said. “I’m thankful for the amazing support they continue to provide. They are a key reason I’ve been able to pursue my dream of racing in the upper levels of NASCAR. Our team and I are committed to doing everything it takes to make AMTS, and all of our fans and partners in the great state of Texas, proud this season.”

Don’t mess with Texas, the Texas Department of Transportation’s acclaimed longtime litter-prevention campaign, will again be supporting Self this season. The campaign will maintain branding presence on Self’s truck and fire suit, and the iconic red, white and blue Don’t mess with Texas trash can will be at the track with the AM Racing team.

“I’m a big believer in litter-prevention, and Don’t mess with Texas has done an incredible job of raising awareness about the cost of littering and importance of keeping the great state of Texas clean,” said Self.

Other partners that will return to support Self this season are Texas Tea, Texas Made, AVIS Rental Car, Hoosier Scale, Ultra One Clean, Beanitos Chips, and ACE Asphalt.
