“Las Vegas was a good result for the AM Racing team and I’m hoping we can continue to mount more strong finishes as the season is nearing a close.”

Austin Wayne Self Pre-Race Quotes:

On World Wide Technology Raceway: “We had such a fast No. 22 GO TEXAN | AM Technical Solutions Chevrolet, last year but got turned by another competitor and ruined our race.

On Watkins Glen: “It was a decent effort from our AM Racing team. It was definitely a chaotic race start to finish, but we made some gains throughout the race but unfortunately didn’t have the strategy at the end to propel us back into the top-10.

“It’s a bummer that we didn’t make the Playoffs, but I’m still very proud of the effort of this AM Racing team. We still have plenty to prove and accomplish before the end of the season in November.”
