Jennifer Anderson victorious in Better Half Dash

 MOORESVILLE, N.C. – Looking more like a seasoned veteran than a care-free rookie competitor, Jennifer Anderson stormed into Victory Lane this past Friday night at Charlotte (N.C.) Motor Speedway in the seventh-annual Better Half Dash.

 

The 25-lap Bandolero charity event among the better halves of NASCAR personalities saw Anderson prevail thanks to an impressive late-race restart over Tammy Rice and Kate Tomaino.

 

The girlfriend of AM Racing driver Austin Wayne Self then passed race leader Paige Keselowski, wife of Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series driver Brad Keselowski on Lap 17 of the popular event and never relinquished.

 

“It was hard (to win) but it was a lot of fun,” said Anderson, who is also the sister of Truck Series driver Jordan Anderson. “It was awesome to have the Hermie and Elliott Sadler Foundation on our car. This is for them. The race was tough. It didn’t come easy.

 

“It has been really fun getting to know all these ladies throughout the past month and a half. It means a lot to win at the same place my brother Jordan (Anderson) has won.”

 

Earlier in the week, Anderson qualified her car on the outside pole, immediately putting her into the pool of pre-race favorites, but her inaugural inexperience in the Better Half Dash would not have been possible without the charitable and encouraging support of AM Technical Solutions, Mark and Linda Henderson, Hermie Sadler, Troy Beall, Knight Fire Protection and the many generous online donators.

 

“I can’t thank everyone enough for allowing me to participate and ultimately win the Better Half Dash,” sounded Anderson. “This was an unbelievably fun and humbling experience and I’m thankful that everything worked out where we were able to raise awareness and money for the Hermie and Elliott Sadler Charitable Foundation.”

 

AM Team principal Tim Self explained how instrumental Anderson’s victory was in seeing members of the AM Racing team unite.

 

“Jennifer did an amazing job and it was a memorable experience celebrating in Victory Lane,” said Self. “Even though it was a charity race, the unity of our team during a short race like the Better Half Dash gives us the motivation to keep pressing forward in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series knowing that the joy and feelings of winning is something we strive for not only for our team, but all of our partners that make it possible.”

 

The Better Half Dash events have now raised more than $300,000 annually for charities.

Jennifer Anderson set to carry AM Racing banner in Better Half Dash

CONCORD, N.C. – Even with an off week in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series (NCWTS), it hasn’t been all work and no play for some members of the AM Racing team.

Before heading to Texas for a weekend of appearances at the State Fair of Texas, veteran driver Austin Wayne Self (@AustinWSelf) will return to Charlotte (N.C.) Motor Speedway to play driver coach and spotter to girlfriend Jennifer Anderson in Friday afternoon’s (Oct. 6) Better Half Dash race hosted by the Motor Racing Outreach (MRO) set to begin at 5:00 p.m.

Anderson is no stranger to speed at the race track. In addition to working alongside Self during Truck Series races, she keeps a close eye on her brother, Jordan Anderson – who also competes full-time in the Truck Series.

Anderson is set to roll off second in Friday afternoon’s 25-lap race after being bounced off the pole by Paige Keselowski, wife of Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series driver Brad Keselowski during qualifications Monday at Charlotte’s quarter-mile track uniting pit road and the frontstretch of the track’s 1.5-mile configuration.

Her quick lap however won’t guarantee her the outside pole for Friday’s race. Fans can decide which Better Half Dash drivers gets to pick their starting spot by donating money to drivers’ causes at go2mro.com/betterhalfdash/drivers.php.

While Anderson will have the support of AM Technical Solutions for the race, she’ll be hosting the Hermie and Elliott Sadler Foundation on her No. 44 machine.

The Hermie and Elliott Sadler Charitable Foundation is dedicated to raising autism awareness and promoting research for a cure, while also supporting initiatives that improve educational opportunities for children and their families.

“I am extremely thankful that MRO has given me the opportunity to compete in this year’s Better Half Dash,” said Anderson. “So far, we’ve been very fast, so it’s all down to the race now.

“I am really honored to be representing the Hermie and Elliott Sadler Foundation on my car. We have until Thursday at midnight to make donations, so please if you can, donate anything.

“I’ve talked to my coach and spotter Austin and our strategy is simple. Take the lead and never look back. Hopefully, we can do just that for a great cause!”

Following the race, Self heads to Texas early Saturday where he’ll join partner at the GO TEXAN pavilion.

At the pavilion, Self will meet with attendees, sign autographs, take pictures, and draw for tickets to the JAG Metals 350 at Texas Motor Speedway on Nov. 3.

Additionally, AM Racing’s No. 22 GO TEXAN truck will be on display for the entire Texas State Fair allowing go-getters an up close and personal view of Self’s 3,400-pound machine.

 

His appearance schedule at the pavilion this weekend is as follows:

 

Saturday, October 7:

  • 11:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m.
  • 3:00 p.m. – 6:00 p.m.

Austin Wayne Self to attend Texas State Fair with partner GO TEXAN

AUSTIN, Texas – While juggling a busy NASCAR Camping World Truck Series (NCWTS) schedule, Austin, Texas native Austin Wayne Self (@AustinWSelf) will carve time to attend the highly popular State Fair of Texas set to launch on September 29 and run through October 22 at the Fair Park in Dallas.

Before competing in Saturday night’s Las Vegas 350 at Las Vegas (Nev.) Motor Speedway, the Texan will detour to his home state where he’ll attend a VIP event this Thursday, Sept. 28 to officially kick off the three-week festival.

“I’m very excited to come back home and attend the State Fair of Texas,” said Self who recorded a career-best second place NASCAR finish at Daytona International Speedway earlier this season.

“The atmosphere, events, rides, games, food and all really do a good job at  showcasing the pride that Texans have at this fair and I’m looking forward to spending some time there over the next couple of weeks.”

In addition to attending the VIP event this week, Self will return to the State Fair of Texas for two additional weekends making appearances at the GO TEXAN pavilion.

GO TEXAN represents Texas agri-business on state, national and international levels by building recognition with the GO TEXAN mark.

Along with its signature mark in the shape of Texas, GO TEXAN celebrates, promotes and supports the business savvy and plainspoken grit Texas agriculture is known throughout the world.

Whether it’s grown, sewn or served on a plate, more than 26 million Texans shop, travel and dine out in full support of Texas business and agriculture.

One of the featured partners with GO TEXAN is Texas Grain Sorghum.

In the United States, and other countries across the globe, sorghum grain is primarily used for livestock feed and ethanol production, but is becoming popular in the consumer food industry and other emerging markets.

Traditionally, nearly one-third of the U.S. sorghum crop is used for renewable fuel production. In fact, sorghum produces the same amount of ethanol per bushel as comparable feedstocks while using up to one-third less water.

With ethanol drawing a more hefty presence in NASCAR, the partnership is a win-win for all parties involved.

At the pavilion, Self will meet with attendees, sign autographs, take pictures, and draw for tickets to the JAG Metals 350 at Texas Motor Speedway on Nov. 3.

Additionally, AM Racing’s No. 22 GO TEXAN truck will be on display for the entire Texas State Fair allowing go-getters an up close and personal view of Self’s 3,400-pound machine.

 

His appearance schedule at the pavilion is as follows:

 

Saturday, October 7:

  • 11:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m.
  • 3:00 p.m. – 6:00 p.m.

Sunday, October 8:

  • 10:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m.

Friday, October 20:

  • 4:00 p.m. – 7:00 p.m.

Saturday, October 21:

  • 10:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m.
  • 2:00 p.m. – 5:00 p.m.

Sunday, October 22:

  • 10:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m.

 

GO TEXAN has been a tremendous partner at AM Racing and I’m honored that they have asked me to spend some time with the fair attendees over the next couple of weeks,” added Self. “I’m looking forward to bringing a little bit of the NASCAR world to the pavilion and its going to be a great time!”

Canadian Tire Motorsport Park / Canada 250  Box Score Report

Austin Wayne Self, No. 22 Don’t mess with Texas / We are One American Family Toyota

NASCAR Camping World Truck Series

Canadian Tire Motorsport Park / Canada 25

Box Score Report

Race No. 15 of 23

 

Stats:

Started: 20th

Finished: Ninth

Laps: 64 / 64

Status: Running

 

Quick Recap:

In his AM Racing return, Austin, Texas native Austin Wayne Self impressed in his No. 22 Don’t’ mess with Texas / We are One American Family Toyota Tundra with a ninth-place finish north of the border at Canadian Tire Motorsport Park.

On the heels of a top-10 finish in his ARCA Racing Series presented by Menards return on a road course last weekend at Road America (Wisc.), the Texan had hoped to take the momentum of a strong ARCA run and capitalize on it in his 10 NASCAR Camping World Truck Series (NCWTS) start of the year.

Not only did Self capitalize on his performance, but the finish propels the likeable Self into the off-weekend with a solid outlook on the rest of the NCWTS season.

After starting 20th, Self hovered inside the top-20 to end Stage 1 in 19th.

However, AM Racing crew chief Bill Henderson was eager to burst Self and his No. 22 team into the spotlight by the end of Stage 2, when Self took fifth and gained some crucial stage points.

Making his final pit stop at the end of Stage 2, Self restarted deep in the field, but steadily worked his way forward on fresher tires and a lot of determination.

With eight laps to go, Self had maneuvered himself back to eighth and over the course of the final laps, the 21-year-old wrestled his way back inside the top-10 and claimed ninth when the checkered flag waved.

Self has 32 career NASCAR Camping World Truck Series starts to his credit. He holds a career-best finish of second at Daytona International Speedway in Feb. 2017 driving for AM Racing. Self’s career-best qualifying effort occurred at his hometown track of Texas Motor Speedway in June 2017 where he qualified 15th before finishing 12th.

 

Driver Quote:

“I’m really proud of the effort our AM Racing showed and delivered at Canadian Tire Motorsport Park. We had a good truck even though we didn’t have the best qualifying effort.

 

“We utilized some strategy and took advantage of being at the right place at the right time to find ourselves in a good stage 2 position and we’re able to make the most of rallying through the field after the final round of pit stops.

 

“I can’t thank my guys enough, along with Don’t mess with Texas and all of our marketing partners at AM Racing. It was important for us to do what we could to spread the message of love and support to those affected by Hurricane Harvey. I promise we won’t forget about them and we’ll be doing our best to help for the weeks and months to come.”

 

Event Notes:

 

  • Austin Wayne Self finished ninth in the Canada 250 at Canadian Tire Motorsport Park in his second NASCAR Camping World Truck Series race at the iconic 2.459-mile road course. Last September, the Texan finished 15th after starting 22nd.

 

  • Self-made his 10th NASCAR Camping World Truck Series start of the year but fifth of the season with Mooresville, N.C.-based AM Racing. This is the same team that Self earned a career-best second place finish in the season-opening NextEra Energy Resources 250 at Daytona (Fla.) International Speedway in February.

 

  • Austin Cindric won the Canada 250 followed by Kaz Grala (second), Noah Gragson (third), Justin Hayley, (fourth) and Ryan Truex (fifth).

 

Next Race: Chicago 225 at Chicagoland Speedway on Fri., Sept. 14.

Austin Wayne Self carries momentum North of the Border to Canada

BOWMANVILLE, Ontario – Fresh off a top-10 finish in his ARCA Racing Series presented by Menards return this past weekend at Road America (Wisc.), sophomore NASCAR Camping World Truck Series (NCWTS) driver Austin Wayne Self (@austinwself) heads to Canadian Tire Motorsport Park looking for his second top-10 finish of the season in Sunday’s Canada 250.

To help prepare the Austin, Texas native for Sunday’s race, AM Racing through their development partner Win-Tron Racing put Self back in ARCA competition for the first time since February 2016.

Not missing a beat, Self practiced well, started outside the top-10 (based off practice speeds), but quickly raced into the top-10 and remained a factor throughout the 25-lap Road America 100. Self, in fact even recovered from being spun by another competitor in the final 10 laps of the race to earn a sixth-place finish.

Carrying the momentum for his first ARCA top-10 finish in nearly two years, Self is craving more as he heads back to Canada’s 2.459-mile, 10-turn road course.

“I’m excited to be back in Canada and get some more road racing experience under my belt,” said Self who returns to the AM Racing colors this weekend. “We had a really good run at Road America. If we had another lap or two, I feel like we would have been able to get a top-five, but we’ll take sixth and move ahead to this weekend’s race.

“I’m in a groove now where I’m just excited to turn left and right. Road America is a technical track and Canadian Tire offers some of that too. Canada is a fast track with some sweeping corners and even a little elevation change. It gives you the thrill and spill that you’re looking for. Hopefully, it’s a good race for our AM Racing team.”

It’s just not a big weekend for Self who has been traveling North of the Border as week as a tourist, but he’ll celebrate the marriage of his aunt Connie who is getting married at the track on Saturday to James Ohman.

“I gotta say it’s pretty neat to have members of my family at the race track this weekend to not only watch me race, but be involved in a family wedding too,” offered Self. “I’m happy for my aunt Connie and my uncle James. We have a big surprise for them this weekend and can’t wait to share.”

Still, with enjoying the blessings of laughter and love with the marriage of his family this weekend in Canada, Self admits that his heart is been breaking for his friends and family back home in Texas who are still feeling the effects of Hurricane Harvey who slammed into the state dropping record inches of rain which has cause massive and catastrophic flooding.

“Austin wasn’t a direct hit, but there were several cities around it that were hit with the unthinkable,” said Self. “I keep seeing all the pictures and videos of the destruction and it just hits you on a really emotional level. Texas is full of great people whose lives will forever be changed because of this event. Over the next couple of weeks, we’ll do our best to show our support and offer assistance.”

To lead the way in standing strong with his home state, Self’s truck will carry “Texas Flood: We are One American Family!” a reminder that what we are witnessing in Texas is what being a true American is all about.  Americans across the United States have come to the rescue and aid of people they don’t even know to help make a difference.

Self hopes the signage on his truck will remind others to continue their selfless and thoughtful acts not only in the weeks, but months and potentially years to come.

In one prior start in Bowmanville, Self qualified 22nd and finished a respectable 15th.

In addition to AM Technical Solutions, Self will have additional marketing partnership support from Don’t mess with Texas, Accu-Tech, Snap-Track, AM Technical Solutions, Superior Essex and Legrand for his 10th race of the season and 32nd of his NCWTS career.

The Canada 250 (64 laps / 157.37 miles) is the 14th of 23 NASCAR Camping World Truck Series races on the 2017 schedule. Practice begins on Sat., Sept. 2 from 9:30 a.m. – 10:25 a.m., with a final practice session is set for 11:35 a.m. – 12:55 p.m. Qualifying is set for later in the day beginning at 5:45 p.m. The 32-truck field will take the green flag the following day, Sun., Sept. 3 shortly after 2:30 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, No. 22 AccuTech / Snap Track / Don’t Mess With Texas Toyota Tundra

NASCAR Camping World Truck Series (NCWTS)

Charlotte (N.C.) Motor Speedway / N.C. Education Lottery 200  

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.

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).

Over their 33-year history with industrial projects, Techline Manufacturing has become aware that there is a growing need for a limited width cable tray system for industrial outdoor applications that assembles with ease and fully protects the cables.

 

With input and support from today’s leading contractors, engineers, and cable manufacturers, Techline Manufacturing is pleased to present its newest product line, Snap Track. Snap Track is the first cable tray system to use patented push pin technology that snaps into place eliminating the need for as many nuts and bolts during installation and reducing labor costs for their customers.

 

“We’re very proud of our new relationship with Accu-Tech,” said AM Racing team Principal Tim Self. “In today’s marketing, business-to-business partnerships are key to success not only on the track, but off the track as well.”

 

“We have some very exciting programs and incentives lined up for the immediate future and look forward to utilizing our NASCAR program to not only strengthen our relationships – but open the door for additional partners to succeed in the enterprise model too.”

 

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.”

 

To prepare for the fifth race of the 2017 season, AM Racing was one of over 20 NCWTS teams that participated in an open-test at Charlotte on May 2.

 

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).

AM Racing; Austin Wayne Self partner with RBI Austin

MOORESVILLE, N.C. – NASCAR Camping World Truck Series (NCWTS) driver Austin Wayne Self announced through his AM Racing team that he has partnered with Reviving Baseball in Inner Cities (RBI) Austin, an inner-city youth group as an advocate for the remainder of the 2017 season.

RBI Austin exists to engage and develop inner-city Austin youth athletically, academically and spiritually, empowering them to lead the transformation of their communities.

Self, a native of Austin, Tex. attended an RBI function last month and immediately decided he wanted to partner with RBI Austin not only as an advocate, but as a contributor too.

RBI Austin targets youth and families from Austin’s inner-city communities. RBI Austin currently serves boys and girls ages 4-12, boys from the ages of 13 – 18 and girls 13 – 15. In 2016, RBI Austin served and mentored 853 kids.

“This is something I’m very excited about being a part of,” said Austin Wayne Self, driver of the No. 22 AM Racing Toyota Tundra. “While continuing to do my duty on the race track in our Toyota Tundra, I wanted to find something from my hometown that I not only can be a part of, but continue to give back not only in 2017 but for years to come.”

“I can’t wait to get back down to Austin and spend some time with the kids. We focus on baseball, but it’s an awesome feeling for me when they ask about NASCAR and what we do at AM Racing too.”

All RBI programs are run by local organizations including Boys & Girls Clubs, MLB and Minor League Baseball Clubs, faith-based organizations, community-based organizations, independent baseball / softball organizations, and grassroots organizations. RBI Austin is under the umbrella of local nonprofit, The For the City Network.

Matt Price, Founder and Director for RBI Austin says having a local celebrity like Austin Wayne Self is important in the growth and values of the non-profit organization.

“RBI Austin is thrilled to partner with Austin Self and AM Racing to engage and develop inner-city youth athletically, academically, and spiritually,” Price said. “Every child needs a strong community of support to thrive, and we’re grateful that Austin has chosen to give his time and efforts to help promote the value and importance of mentors in our inner-city communities. “

“We look forward to Austin being a role model and advocate for inner-city kids in Austin and beyond.”

To intertwine the two worlds, AM Racing and RBI Austin will work close together throughout the season with the intent to bring RBI Austin members to a race track – where they’ll be able to explore another world of professional sports – while also bringing further attentiveness to RBI Austin’s mission.

Self, 21, says being a role model is a chance for him to give back for all the blessings he’s received not only in life, but seeing his dream blossom into fruition as a race car driver.

“It doesn’t matter how old you are or how much time you spend with someone – if you make the effort, the fulfilling is irreplaceable. I’ve been called a mentor and even a hero being a race car driver and that’s real cool and all, but if you’re not getting out there and truly making a difference – then none of that matters. I’m proud to be a role model in several ways and look forward to the challenges and blessings that being a part of RBI Austin will bring.”

Crissa Youngblood, a RBI Austin mentor nearly echoed Self’s sentiment.

“I think someone should become a mentor because kids wants somebody in their life,” she said. “You can be their answer, but it will also bless you a lot.”

Austin Wayne Self earns career-best second Truck Series finish at Daytona

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. – AM Racing driver Austin Wayne Self had to play the strategy game during Friday night’s NextEra Energy Resources 250 at Daytona (Fla.) International Speedway.

The strategy paid off to near perfection as Self was able to negotiate past a wild last lap backstretch melee to earn a second-place finish to kick off his 2017 NASCAR Camping World Truck Series (NCWTS) season.

In practice Thursday, Self, 20, focused solely on single-truck runs given AM Racing’s newly introduced 32 team did not have owner points to fall back on as did their 22 Team

That focus paid off with Self qualifying 22nd on Friday afternoon.

Just two laps into the race, a 17-truck accident occurred entering Turn 1 causing some front-end damage to Self’s No. 32 Don’t Mess with Texas Toyota Tundra.

Quick work instructed by crew chief Bill Henderson sent the Texan back into the race on the lead lap.

For the remaining two stages, Self kept his truck out of trouble and on the lead lap knowing if he didn’t suffer any further damage he would be a contender during the third 60-lap stage shootout.

Throughout the final stage, Self kept his sights on the leaders, while hovering between 10th and 13th.

When a caution waived less than five laps from the finish, it set the tone for a chaotic finish.

Restarting 12th on a green, white, checker, Self charged up the middle with a run to seventh before moving to the bottom going into turn 1 for a final push to the checkered flag.

When trucks began spinning and flying through the air on the backstretch, the Austin, Texas native stayed on the gas, drove his truck to the bottom and cleared the carnage to emerge to a second-place finish when the field was frozen under caution.

Along with Self’s career-best run, AM Racing Teammate J.J. Yeley scored his personal Truck Series best at the 2.5-mile superspeedway with a ninth place run in the No. 22 Legrand / Superior Essex Toyota.

The effort was Self’s first top-five finish and second career top-10 in 23 races. Self also bested his Daytona performance from last February at the “World Center of Racing” where he finished 19th.

“What an unbelievable night for our AM Racing team,” said Self. “For putting this team together three weeks ago, a second-place finish in Daytona says a lot about our Program. I can’t thank Bill (Henderson, Crew Chief) enough, our guys on the AM Racing Team and of course our AM Racing partners, especially AM Technical Solutions and B&D Industries Inc. Thanks to Toyota and the Born in Texas Toyota Tundra. Big gratitude to Mark Cronquist and the Joe Gibbs Engine Shop.

“We’ll look for some more of these types of runs this season.”

Team principal Tim Self said he was extremely appreciative and humbled by the performance of his two teams Friday night.

“Great Team effort!,” said Tim Self.” Kevin Cywinski (Director of Competition) and the entire shop came together and worked their butts off the last two weeks getting two ARCA teams and two Truck teams to Daytona on back to back weekends. I’m just grateful to be part of this team.”

“I was proud to see both work very well together during the race and on that last lap, both drivers did their best with all the chaos and we came away with a top-five and top-10 finish. Other than a win, it doesn’t get much better than that. It may have not been the win, but it sure feels like one.”

For the season-opener, Self drew additional support for the race from Don’t Mess with Texas, Go Texan and their partners Hardcore Carnivore and Big Red. Techline, Snaptrack and JB Henderson Construction as associate

Next up for the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series is a double-header with the XFINITY Series at Atlanta Motor Speedway for the running of the Active Pest Control 200 on Sat., Mar. 4.
