Box Score Report

Race No. 5 of 23

 

Stats:

Started: 19th

Finished: 12th

Laps: 134 / 134

Status: Running

 

Quick Recap:

AM Racing driver Austin Wayne Self rallied from a speeding penalty and late-race contact with another competitor to finish a strong 12th in Friday night’s N.C. Education Lottery 200 at Charlotte (N.C.) Motor Speedway in the No. 22 AccuTech / Snap Track / Don’t Mess With Texas Toyota Tundra.

After qualifying 19th, Self ran as high as 10th before being slipping back to 16th inside the final 15 laps of the race. When the caution waved with seven laps to go, crew chief Bill Henderson brought the Austin, Tex. native down pit road for tires, a touch of fuel and a slight chassis adjustment to combat a loose No. 22 AM Racing Toyota.

Rocketing from 16th, with three laps to go, Self utilized the draft and even some side-drafting over the final four and a half miles to edge Austin Cindric for a 12th place finish, a career-best effort on an intermediate track bettering a 13th place run at Texas Motor Speedway last year.

Friday night’s result was the second consecutive top-15 finish for Self after finishing 15th last weekend at Kansas Speedway for Niece Motorsports.

 

Driver Quote:

“It was a good night for our No. 22 AccuTech / Snap Track / Don’t Mess With Texas Toyota. We kept adjusting the truck throughout the day, from qualifying to the race and had a pretty good truck during the race. We worked hard to muscle our way from 19th and contended for a top-10 finish before sliding back to 16th late in the game.”

“When the caution came out, we took advantage of the opportunity to pit and it paid off. Really stoked to get a good finish for AccuTech in their debut in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series and carry some momentum to some of our upcoming races.”

“I also wanted to say I’m glad Regan Smith is alright. It was just hard racing and tight quarters. I didn’t mean to get into him. I hate that happened, but just glad he is OK.”

 

Event Notes:

 

  • Austin Wayne Self finished 12th in the N.C. Education Lottery 200, his second career NASCAR Camping World Truck Series start at the 1.5-mile oval. The effort betters his 21st place finish at Charlotte last May.

 

  • In three NASCAR Camping World Truck Series races this season, Austin Wayne Self has collected one top-five and three top-15 finishes, including a career-best second at Daytona (Fla.) International Speedway in February.

 

  • Kyle Busch won the 15th annual N.C. Education Lottery 200 followed by Johnny Sauter (second), Christopher Bell (third), Ryan Truex (fourth) and Timothy Peters (fifth).

 

Next Race: Bar Harbor 200 at Dover (Del.) International Speedway on Fri., June 2.

Austin Wayne Self looks for solid finish in Charlotte return

MOOORESVILLE, N.C. – On the heels of a superb top-15 finish this past weekend at Kansas Speedway, NASCAR Camping World Truck Series (NCWTS) sophomore driver Austin Wayne Self (@AustinWSelf) returns to his AM Racing team looking for another solid performance in Friday night’s N.C. Education Lottery 200 at Charlotte (N.C.) Motor Speedway.

Last Friday night, Self made his second NCWTS start of the season driving the No. 45 Niece Motorsports Chevrolet Silverado where the Austin, Tex. native steadily progressed through the 167-lap race and maneuvered a noteworthy 15th place performance.

This week, he’ll return to his home base AM Racing alongside new marketing partner Accu-Tech with hopes of earning his second top-10 finish of the season in the heart of NASCAR country.

“I’m really looking forward to Friday night’s race at Charlotte Motor Speedway with AM Racing,” said Self. “Even though I was driving for a different team, I’m really pumped right now after Kansas.”

“We have a new marketing partner on-board with Accu-Tech and I really want to have a good showing for them and build some momentum for our upcoming races.”

Accu-Tech is a nationwide distributor servicing the voice/data, security, audio/video, and wireless markets through its 35 stocking locations. With its unique approach to the industry and ongoing dedication to grow with its customers, Accu-Tech has been the contractor’s choice for the past 30 years.

Accu-Tech and their manufacturer partners are available for project planning and system design to provide a cost-effective solution while maintaining the highest level of performance.

To help prepare for Accu-Tech’s NCWTS debut, Self was one of several drivers who participated in a test session at Charlotte earlier this month. Spending the afternoon balancing their setup, Self and his team led by veteran crew chief Bill Henderson believe their notes will pay off Friday night.

“We spent a lot of the day and night working back and forth on the setup,” said Self. “Our race will be starting shortly before the sun sets, so keeping up with the track’s changing conditions is what we focused on.”

“We really learned a lot though and the guys have been working extremely hard in the shop since then too. I feel as though our conservative approach to the test will allow us to hammer down for the race.”

Self, 21, has 24 career NASCAR Camping World Truck Series starts with a career-best second place finish at Daytona (Fla.) International Speedway in Feb. 2017. An 18th place qualifying effort at Texas Motor Speedway is his best time trials effort to date.

The N.C. Education Lottery 200 (134 laps / 201 miles) is the fifth of 23 NASCAR Camping World Truck Series races on the 2017 schedule. Practice begins on Thurs., May 18 from 5:00 p.m. – 5:55 p.m. A final practice session is set for 7:00 p.m. – 7:55 p.m. Qualifying is set for race day, Fri., May 19 beginning at 4:45 p.m. The 32-truck field will take the green flag shortly after 8:30 p.m. with live coverage on FOX Sports 1 (FS1), the Motor Racing Network (Radio) and SiriusXM NASCAR Radio (Satellite Radio, Channel 90).

Austin Wayne Self propels to solid finish under Kansas Speedway lights

KANSAS CITY, Kan. – Competing in his first NASCAR Camping World Truck Series (NCWTS) race since Daytona (Fla.) International Speedway in February, Austin Wayne Self piloted the No. 45 Niece Equipment / Precision Air Technology Chevrolet to a solid finish in Friday night’s Toyota Tundra 250 at Kansas Speedway.

During practice on Thursday, Self and crew chief Cody Efaw spent the session getting accustomed to each other while continuing to work on the handling of their race truck in preparation for the fourth race of the 2017 season.

Picking up the pace considerably in qualifying, Self turned in the 21st quickest lap and immediately put his Niece Motorsports truck inside the top-20 during the early stages of the 167-lap race.

The team’s endless effort to keep up with their handling of their truck with the track’s changing conditions proved to be beneficial for Self as he hovered inside the top-20 for much of the race.

Making the most of the free pass on Friday night, Self found himself climbing inside the top-15 late and despite losing a lap to the leaders in the closing run, the 21-year-old was able to keep his competition at bay to finish 15th, a personal best at the 1.5-mile track in trucks.

“I’m really appreciative of the opportunity with Niece Motorsports,” said Self, a native of Austin, Tex. “We really had a good and productive race. We kept making adjustments on the truck and the changes allowed me to turn some really competitive laps to work our way forward. This is some good momentum for Niece Motorsports and myself heading to Charlotte.”

“I hope there may be another opportunity to work with Niece Motorsports down the road. I certainly enjoyed it. I want to thank Cody (Efaw) and everyone on the 45 crew and of course Niece Equipment and Precision Air Technology for the opportunity to race.”

Next up for the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series is a stop at Charlotte (N.C.) Motor Speedway for the running of the N.C. Education Lottery 200 on Friday night, May 19.

Austin Wayne Self, who led the AM Racing team to their career-best finish in the series with a runner-up performance in the season-opening NextEra Energy Resources 250 at Daytona (Fla.) International Speedway in Feb., is proud to represent a new partner.

 

“I’d like nothing more than to welcome Accu-Tech to AM Racing by give them a good finish next weekend at Charlotte Motor Speedway,” said Self who will make his second start at the 1.5-mile track on May 19. “I appreciate their commitment to not only working alongside the great folks at Snap Track, but their eagerness to explore and thrive with our AM Racing team.”
