AM Racing, Austin Wayne Self ready for Daytona

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla.: The offseason is over, and the start of the 2020 NASCAR Gander RV & Outdoors Truck Series season is here.

For driver Austin Wayne Self and his AM Racing team, the duo heads to Daytona (Fla.) International Speedway this week looking to start the new season off on the right foot and collect back-to-back top-10 finishes at the “World Center of Racing.”

“The offseason went pretty quick, but I’m ready to get back to the track and get after it,” said Self.

“It’s a been a busy couple months with the big shop move and working hard to better our program for the season. A good finish at Daytona on Friday night would be a great reward for everyone’s efforts.”

The Austin, Texas native will make his fifth start at the 2.5-mile superspeedway on Friday night and statistically speaking, it’s the home of his career-best finish in Truck Series competition.

In 2017, Self-guided his truck through a massive last-lap accident that propelled him to finish second. Two years later, he returned to the top-10 with a solid ninth-place result last February.

This weekend though, Self believes he has a truck that could win the race.

“Our superspeedway program was very strong last year,” added Self. “Of course, a lot of things have to go your way to get to the checkered flag, but a fast truck certainly helps. My crew chief Eddie (Troconis) has a niche for this type of racing and he works super hard to make sure we have what it takes when it comes to superspeedway racing.

“I enjoy the intensity and strategy of this type of racing and I think I’ve been able to show that over the years. Daytona has been accustomed to producing first-time winners in the past and I’d like to add my name to that list.”

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

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

In 84 NGROTS 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 four years of competition.

CForce to quench AM Racing’s thirst again in 2020

STATESVILLE, N.C.: Officials from AM Racing proudly announced today that CForce Bottling Company and its CForce premium artesian water will once again quench the thirst of the NASCAR Gander RV & Outdoors Truck Series team for the 2020 season.

CForce Bottling Company founded in 2015 by Gena and American martial artist, actor, film producer and screenwriter Chuck Norris will return to the No. 22 Chevrolet Silverado in an associate partnership role for the entire 23-race schedule beginning with the season-opener at Daytona (Fla.) International Speedway next month.

CForce premium artesian water is naturally filtered through ancient, 23,000-year-old, volcanic rock and is then deposited into a deep, sustainable aquifer.

As a force of nature, the water erupts from the ground and is already pure, smooth and naturally high in pH. A state-of-the-art bottling facility was constructed on the property in 2016 to bottle CForce premium artesian water at its source.

The Navasota, Texas-based company joined the team early in 2018 and has steadily increased their involvement each season.

“The partnership with Austin (Wayne Self) is one of our favorite things in the year,” offered Tyler Norris, Vice President of Marketing for CForce Bottling Company. “He’s an incredible driver and an even greater ambassador for our product.”

“CForce water is proud of our partnership with AM Racing and we look forward to watching Austin’s 2020 season unfold.”

For Self, a native of Austin, Texas, CForce Bottling Company is another Texas-based company that his family-owned team has been able to retain for the upcoming Truck Series season.

The 23-year-old driver says it means something to represent a marketing partner from your home state.

“I love CForce water,” said Self. “And I’m not just saying that because they are a partner with our race team. Their water is refreshing and keeps me hydrated in and outside of our No. 22 AM Racing Chevrolet Silverado.

“I truly have enjoyed our partnership with CForce water and showcasing such a cool product on social media throughout the year. Can’t wait to do even more in 2020!”

The green flag for the 2020 NGROTS season begins at the “World Center of Racing” at Daytona International Speedway on Fri., Feb 14, 2020 for the NextEra Energy Resources 250 live on FOX Sports 1, the Motor Racing Network and SiriusXM Satellite Radio NASCAR Channel 90.

STATESVILLE, N.C.: Continuing to see partnerships renewed ahead of the 2020 NASCAR Gander RV & Outdoors Truck Series season, AM Racing announced today that Kreuz Market will also return with the organization this season.

Kreuz Market located in the Barbecue Capital of Texas offers some of the best-smoked sausage and craft meats. Served on butcher paper and eaten in a rustic cafeteria typesetting the same way since there opening in 1900.

About Kreuz Market:

When Charles Kreuz Sr. opened a grocery store in 1900, he started smoking meats and sausage in brick barbecue pits and selling it to his customers on butcher paper. That’s how they did it in the old country at German meat-markets and that’s how we do it today. New barbecue joints are popping up all the time—some with ribs drowned in sauce, others with new fangled commercial smokers.

You won’t find that stuff at Kreuz. We do it the old-fashioned way because here in the home of Texas barbecue, we know that original way is still the best way.
