NASCAR Camping World Truck Series (NCWTS)
Charlotte (N.C.) Motor Speedway / N.C. Education Lottery 200
Box Score Report
Race No. 5 of 23
Laps: 134 / 134
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.
“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.”
- 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.
