Phoenix International Raceway Post Race Quote:pir1

“It was a tough night out there.  We didn’t really have the best starting position – had to really battle the truck during qualifying.  The handling got much better once green flag dropped.  I had a little trouble getting into the corners early on but overall it was a huge improvement from qualifying. But that was all short lived – had some problems with tire damage from early incident with 02 truck that wasn’t really noticeable until 5 or 6 laps into that long green flag run.  It really hurt our chances and caused us to go couple laps down.  It was frustrating but the guys worked really hard for that finish.”

Texas Motor Speedway Race Notes:

Austin Wayne Self (AWS) and his No.22 AM Technical Solutions Toyota Tundra finished 22nd in Friday’s Striping Technology 350 at Texas Motor Speedway. Friday’s Texas homecoming was AWS’s 20th event of the season and marked his return to the driver’s seat after forgoing last week’s race in Martinsville where Justin Fontaine made his NCWTS debut piloting AM Racing’s No.22 machine.

With only two races remaining in the 2016 NCWTS season AWS shifts his attention to the final stretch.  The series moves further west for Friday night’s race at Phoenix before concluding at Homestead Miami Speedway on November 18.

Texas Motor Speedway Post Race Quote:

“It wasn’t the homecoming finish we wanted but overall another good day for our AM Technical Solutions team.  I would have loved to be up front but we just couldn’t get the truck where it needed to be until late in the race.  We fought a loose truck early on but once we got things right the truck was solid during those long green flag runs.  I’m really thankful for everyone sticking in there today.  We’re leaving with a clean truck and headed to Phoenix.” -Austin Wayne Selftms00
