Austin Wayne Self Quote: “I had an absolute blast out there with our No. 22 GO TEXAN | AM Technical Solutions Chevrolet Silverado. The track continued to change throughout the race – but luckily we adapted as best as we could and we still had a fast truck.

“I was bound and determined to bring the guys and our partners home a top-10 and that’s exactly what we accomplished. This is a great confidence booster for our team to head into the short break as we prepare for Richmond in a couple of weeks.”

It’s Dirt Baby: This weekend at Bristol Motor Speedway marks the historic NASCAR Camping World Truck Series race on dirt. The Pinty’s Dirt Truck Race is the first of two dirt Truck Series races in 2021.

Driver Austin Wayne Self has previous experience on dirt in the ARCA Menards Series and the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series.

He participated in three races at the famed Eldora Speedway in 2016, 2018 and 2019 respectively. He earned a best finish of ninth in his dirt debut in 2016 after starting 28th.

The Format: Saturday night’s field will consist of 40 trucks.

35 trucks will earn a spot based on their points earned in the qualifying races (qualifying race finish points + passing points). Four additional provisional spots will be awarded to the top four trucks in 2021 Truck Series owners’ points who have not already earned a spot in the race.

The final provisional will go to the most recent past champion. If one does not exist, it will go to the next highest truck in Truck Series owner points.

Austin Wayne Self Truck Series Bristol Motor Speedway Stats: While Austin Texas native Austin Wayne Self does not have any starts on the Bristol dirt, he does have five starts on the traditional oval.

From 2016 to 2020, Self has competed in five races on the 0.533-mile concrete oval, delivering a track-best of 13th in 2018.

Atlanta Motor Speedway | FR8 Auctions 200 Race Recap: On the heels of a season-best 14th place finish at Las Vegas (Nev.) Motor Speedway in early March, the AM Racing team had high hopes for the FR8 Auctions 200.

After starting 12th, Self was able to maintain a presence throughout the top-20 during most of the race. Unfortunately, a late-race speeding penalty hindered the team’s ability to recover after running out of laps.

Self did, however, hustle from the back to a respectable 23rd place finish.

To The Point(s): Entering Bristol, Self sits 14th in the championship standings.

Just 40 points separate Self from fifth in the championship standings currently held by Stewart Friesen with 18 races remaining this season.

Career Rundown: Since 2016, Self has competed in 111 NASCAR Camping World Truck Series races, delivering two top-five and nine top-10 finishes. He finished a career-best 12th in the championship standings in 2018.

Austin Wayne Self Pre-Race Quotes:

On Bristol (Tenn.) Motor Speedway Dirt: “I’m energetic about running the Dirt Track this weekend at Bristol. I love racing on the dirt and overall have been pretty decent at it. The credit goes to my AM Racing team for bringing me a truck I can wheel.

“It is going to be important to utilize practice to the best of our ability, see what happens in the heat race and then just maintain our pace during the race to make sure we are in contention for a good finish when the checkered flag is thrown.”

On Atlanta (Ga.) Motor Speedway Finish: “It certainly wasn’t the finish we were hoping for. We started out decent, but the lack of grip seemed to have hindered us throughout the race.

“The late-race speeding penalty didn’t help either. We made some gains in the final run to the finish, so I’m thankful we salvaged a somewhat decent day when it could have been a lot worse.”

On 2021 Season After Four Races: “We have worked really hard at AM Racing during the opening stint to the season. We have been very solid. Our trucks have been fast, but the series is extremely competitive this season.

“We just need to stay focused and come to the track worried about the performance of our No. 22 GO TEXAN | AM Technical Solutions Chevrolet and everything else will work out.

“We are looking forward to the upcoming break after Bristol to regroup and then press the attack at Richmond in April.”

Austin Wayne Self Pre-Race Quotes:

On Atlanta (Ga.) Motor Speedway: “Atlanta hasn’t been the kindest to me over the years, but I’m hoping the momentum we are carrying will pay dividends this weekend.

“Track position and handling especially on newer tires are going to make such a difference at Atlanta this weekend because of the tire wear. I just hope we are in a position to take advantage of that if we get a late race caution.

“The goal at Atlanta is to leave there with another solid finish and make sure we are in a good spot for the highly anticipated Bristol dirt race.”

On Las Vegas (Nev.) Motor Speedway Finish: “I can’t thank everyone on this AM Racing team for all their hard work. We had a good No. 22 AIRBOX Air Purifier Chevrolet throughout much of the race.

“We were strong on restarts but just came a little short of a top-10 finish. I’m really happy with the performance of our team to start the year and can’t wait for Atlanta.”

On 2021 Season After Three Races: “I’m really proud of my AM Racing team. I know it has only been three races so far in 2021, but I think we have shown that we have it what it takes to be contenders this season.

“We showed speed in our trucks at Daytona, on the Road Course of Daytona and even at Las Vegas. It’s going to be crucial for us to continue to showcase our ability this weekend at Atlanta.”
