Austin Wayne Self, AM Racing hope to shine at Homestead-Miami Speedway

HOMESTEAD, Fla.: Collecting another solid finish this past weekend at ISM (Ariz.) Raceway, veteran NASCAR Gander Outdoors Truck Series driver Austin Wayne Self and his AM Racing team trek to Homestead-Miami (Fla.) Speedway for Friday night’s season-finale hoping to end the season like they started with a top-10 finish in the Ford EcoBoost 200.

Under the leadership of veteran crew chief Eddie Troconis, the AM Racing team has stepped up to the plate this season to be contenders throughout the schedule at a variety of different race tracks.

While their goal remains clear to end the season with their fourth top-10 finish, the Mooresville, N.C.-based team will also use the final 134 laps of the year to get ahead for the upcoming 2020 NGOTS season.

“We are focused on going to Homestead and making the best of it,” said Self who sits 14th in the championship standings. “We have worked hard as a team to put the most competitive trucks on the race track possible. Start to finish, we’ve made significant gains, but we still have more work to do.

“We’re not fighting for a championship and I’ll certainly be respectful of the competition, but I plan to go out and race hard for my team and our partners.

“Homestead is a fun race track because of its multiple grooves. No matter what happens though, I think we would all agree that the 2019 season has been a successful one and we can march ahead with a brighter outlook towards 2020.”

Self, 23, will make his fourth start at Homestead-Miami Speedway on Friday night, and while the track provides multiple lanes to race, the Austin, Tex. native says keeping up with the handling of their No. 22 GO TEXAN | AM Technical Solutions Chevrolet Silverado is vital to keeping themselves on the lead lap and in contention.

“You never know how the race is going to go,” added Self. “You can either have a lot of long green flag runs or a lot of short turns. Just depends on a lot of circumstances. We’ll work hard during practice to make sure the truck is best suited for both options.

“I believe the fastest way around Homestead on Friday night will be rim-riding the wall, but you have to be so cautious in a truck because you can easily be sucked into the wall and ruin your night. We’ll have some chances in the first two stages to get our truck balanced right for the last stage. No matter what though, it should be a fun night of racing in November.”

For the series’ second trip to Florida this season, AM Technical Solutions will serve alongside GO TEXAN as a major associate partner for Friday night’s race.

GO TEXAN, celebrating its 20th Birthday this year, represents Texas agri-business on state, national and international levels by building recognition with the GO TEXAN mark will continue its primary role with AM Racing this weekend at Homestead-Miami (Fla.) International Speedway.

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 for throughout the world.

Don’t mess with Texas, CForce Bottling Company, Flying Circle, Kreuz Market and United Sorghum Checkoff Program will serve as associate partners in the 23rd race of the year.

In 83 NGOTS races, the 2014 ARCA Menards Series Rookie of the Year has two top-fives (second at Daytona 2017, fifth at Michigan 2019) and seven top-10 finishes. The Texan maintains an average finish of 18.0 during his three years of competition.

The Austin, Texas native is nestled 14th in the championship standings with one race remaining.

Austin Wayne Self, AM Racing head to Martinsville prepared and ready for homestretch

MARTINSVILLE, Va.: Following a brief one-week break from competition, AM Racing and driver Austin Wayne Self (@AustinWSelf) trek to Martinsville (Va.) Speedway for Saturday’s NASCAR Hall of Fame 200 determined to continue to showcase the team’s ongoing strength.

In the most recent event at Talladega (Ala.) Superspeedway on Oct. 12, Self once again showed speed from his No. 22 GO TEXAN | AM Technical Solutions Chevrolet Silverado and not only contended for stage points but had an opportunity to put his AM Racing team in Victory Lane.

The race fans agreed too. In a Motor Racing Network online poll, Self was voted at 63 percent to win the race.

Unfortunately, the team never made it to the checkered flag as they became victim to a mechanical failure. With the diagnosis complete, the Mooresville, N.C.-based team heads to the famed-Virginia short track ready to finish what they started at the 2.66-mile superspeedway and deliver Self another top-10 Gander Truck Series finish this year.

“Talladega was tough to swallow because we had so much speed,” Self said. “The mechanical failure wasn’t anyone’s fault, just one of those racing deals.

“What I’m really proud of though is that our AM Racing team has been able to showcase speed at a variety of race tracks this season from superspeedways to short tracks and even the intermediate tracks and that bolds well for the rest of the 2019 season too.”

The 23-year-old returns to the 0.555-mile track poised to make his fifth start and seek his first top-10 finish. In his previous four efforts, Self delivered a respectable 15th place finish in his track debut in 2016.

“For being a short track, Martinsville is very technical,” added Self. “When it comes to that place, sometimes you have to go slower to go faster. You need to have the momentum at the right time and be able to accelerate off the corners to be able to carry the speed down the straightaways before you get back to the corner.

“When you put 32 other trucks on the track, it becomes very crowded and even physical. Much like any short track, track position is critical so my crew chief Eddie (Troconis) and I will spend some time in race setup mode and see where we’re at.

“This race is shorter than the spring, so you have to get to work when the green flag drops. For us, it’s about going out there to keep showcasing ourselves as contenders and doing a good job for all of our partners who allow us to race every week.

“The end of the season is on the horizon and I want to bring home some good finishes at Martinsville, Phoenix and Homestead – so we can focus solely on 2020.”

With just three races left in 2019, Self said that his team has already started to look forward to next season – knowing what did work and what didn’t work for this year gives us an opportunity to elevate our team to that next level.

“I felt like we made some significant gains this year, but there’s still work to be done before the end of the year,” added Self. “We’ll see how Martinsville goes and then get at it for Phoenix. These three races will go quickly but then again Daytona will be here before we know it too. I feel like there are good things ahead for AM Racing.”

For the series’ second trip to Martinsville this season, AM Technical Solutions will serve alongside GO TEXAN as a major associate partner for Saturday afternoon’s race.

GO TEXAN, celebrating its 20th Birthday this year, represents Texas agri-business on state, national and international levels by building recognition with the GO TEXAN mark will continue its primary role with AM Racing this weekend at Martinsville Speedway.

Austin Wayne Self, AM Racing look to put on a show in Talladega rumble

TALLADEGA, Ala.: After a two-week break, AM Racing’s Austin Wayne Self (@AustinWSelf) saddles back into action this weekend at Talladega (Ala.) Superspeedway eyeing his second top-five finish of the year in Saturday afternoon’s Sugarlands Shine 250.

For the Austin, Texas native and his team, it’s not just about producing another solid result in their No. 22 GO TEXAN | AM Technical Solutions Chevrolet Silverado, but it’s the chance to revamp the storylines in the NASCAR Gander Outdoors Truck Series Playoffs and take the team to Victory Lane at one of the series’ most unpredictable races.

“I’ve been ready for Talladega Superspeedway for a while now,” said Austin Wayne Self. “Eddie (Troconis) and the guys on the AM Racing team have been working hard on our superspeedway truck getting it ready for battle.

“I love these superspeedway races. I feel like I’m a pretty good drafter and I’ve been able to come from the back to the front on a number of occasions and put our AM Racing team in the thick of the battle when it counted most. Maybe, we can finally seal the deal on Saturday afternoon.”

Superspeedway racing produced the career-best outing for Self and his Mooresville, N.C.-based team. In 2017, Self finished second in the Truck Series season-opener at Daytona (Fla.) International Speedway, cleverly mastering through a wild last lap accident on the backstretch.

Self knows that similar circumstances could transpire in the second and final superspeedway race of the season, but he says his AM Racing team can’t be worried about getting caught up in the “Big One.”

“You try to put a strategy together and it winds up backfiring,” added Self. “For us, we’re not racing for a championship, but we’re racing to put our partners and team in the winner’s circle. I’m going to race respectfully this weekend, but if there’s an opportunity to put ourselves in a position to win the race, I’m going for it.

“There’s not too many races left in the season, so every lap is important. We’ve had a lot to be proud of at AM Racing, especially over the summer and we need to make sure we continue to make those gains over these next four races to ramp up for the 2020 season.”

The 23-year-old Self will make his fourth Truck Series start at the 2.66-mile superspeedway. In his previous three efforts, he earned a track-best of 12th last October and hasn’t finished worse than 18th. He has completed 282 of the 283 laps since 2016.

“Talladega is a bit wider than Daytona, so traditionally it can provide a better race,” sounded Self. “You can go from the back to the front quicker, but the stages are pretty short on Saturday, so we just need to see how the race plays out and make sure we find our (drafting) partners so we can be ready to pounce during Stage 3.”

For the series’ long stop in Alabama, AM Technical Solutions will serve alongside GO TEXAN as a major associate partner for Saturday afternoon’s race.

GO TEXAN, celebrating its 20th Birthday this year, represents Texas agri-business on state, national and international levels by building recognition with the GO TEXAN mark will continue its primary role with AM Racing this weekend at Talladega (Ala.) Superspeedway.

Don’t mess with Texas, CForce Bottling Company, Flying Circle and Kreuz Market will serve as associate partners in the 20th race of the year.

In 80 NGOTS races, the 2014 ARCA Menards Series Rookie of the Year has two top-fives (second at Daytona 2017, fifth at Michigan 2019) and seven top-10 finishes. The Texan maintains an average finish of 17.8 during his three years of competition.

The Austin, Texas native is nestled 14th in the championship standings with four races remaining.

Austin Wayne Self Quote: “We struggled with the balance of our No. 22 GO TEXAN | AM Technical Solutions Chevrolet Silverado throughout the race. We made some gains during the race to get the grip we needed to move forward, but just didn’t quite have enough to propel us into the top-15 by the end of the race.

Austin Wayne Self, AM Racing ready to double down in Las Vegas

LAS VEGAS, Nev: With just five NASCAR Gander Outdoors Truck Series (NGOTS) races remaining in the 2019 season, every race is important for AM Racing and driver Austin Wayne Self.

As the series returns following a quick two-week break, Self and his Eddie Troconis led team head to Las Vegas (Nev.) Motor Speedway looking to roll the dice and deliver another top-five finish in Friday night’s World of Westgate 200.

Since delivering a sixth-place finish at Kentucky Speedway in July, AM Racing hasn’t finished outside the top-15. With one top-five, two top 10s and six top-15 finishes in-between, the Mooresville, N.C.-based team certainly has hit its stride during the summer stretch and shows no signs of slowing down.

“I always enjoy going to Las Vegas,” said Self. “It’s a track that embraces NASCAR racing and the fans are incredible. The race track is also a lot of fun. It’s a fast race track where drafting is critical, and handling is crucial.

“AM Racing has enjoyed a lot of success on the bigger tracks this summer and I’m eager to see if we can keep that momentum going on Friday night. “It’s going to be hot, but we expect that during fall in Las Vegas. If we can keep up with the track conditions going from day to night, we should have an opportunity to earn our fourth top-10 of the year.”

Self will make his sixth career start at the 1.5-mile speedway. After finishing ninth in the fall race last year, the Austin, Texas native returned to Sin City in March and delivered a strong top-15 finish.

With so much learned in the past year, Self isn’t counting out an opportunity to put his AM Racing team in Victory Lane if the circumstances work out.

“Winning is not out of our hands at AM Racing,” explained Self. “We have showcased that we have the speed in our trucks – we just need the race to play into our hands as far as strategy goes and we should have the chance to capitalize on it.

“We’ve seen where fuel mileage can be a late race factor and hopefully we’re in a position to take advantage of that. With Las Vegas being a cutoff race for the Playoffs, I think you’re going to see a chaotic race but for those of us not in the Playoffs, it’s a good chance for us to showcase our stuff.

“Should be a fun race for the fans.”

AM Racing team manager Kevin Cywinski says he is exceptionally proud of the results the team has shown lately.

“Austin, Eddie and the team have been doing a fantastic job,” offered Cywinski. “We have recovered from a couple of mishaps late in the spring and early in the summer and really have been focused on going out there and not leaving anything on the table.

“I think everyone has executed well and that has given the whole team a good morale not only at the track but at the race shop. Everyone is really upbeat about this last stretch of races and the opportunity to not only run well but perhaps win a race by the end of the season at Homestead.”

For the series’ return trip to the West Coast, alongside GO TEXAN, AM Technical Solutions will serve as a major associate partner for Friday night’s race.
