Austin Wayne Self Quote: “I’m super proud of this AM Racing team. We had such a strong and fast No. 22 GO TEXAN | AM Technical Solutions Chevrolet Silverado all night long. We got off on strategy a little bit hoping to save a set of tires for the end of the race.

“Luckily, that caution came out and we came from the back of the lead lap group and got back to the top-10 but ran out of laps to finish better than ninth. Still, this finish is exactly what we were looking for.

“I had a lot of fun and I’m proud of Ryan (Salomon, crew chief) and all the AM Racing guys. Excited to go to Phoenix and end the year with a chance to chase another top-10 finish.”

Austin Wayne Self and AM Racing ride Texas momentum to Martinsville Speedway

Austin Wayne Self and AM Racing ride Texas momentum to Martinsville

MARTINSVILLE, Va.: The penultimate race of the 2020 NASCAR Gander RV & Outdoors Truck Series season is on deck.

With just two races remaining this year, the NASCAR Gander RV & Outdoors Truck Series is approaching the checkered flag, but for Austin Wayne Self and his AM Racing team, there is still plenty of work to be done.

And with momentum on their side from a terrific seventh-place finish in last Sunday’s SpeedyCash.com 400 at Texas Motor Speedway, the AM Racing team is using momentum to propel them into Martinsville (Va.) Speedway before gearing up for the season finale at Phoenix (Ariz.) Raceway on Nov. 6.

Feeling rejuvenated after Texas, Self is focused on continuing the strong pace in Friday night’s NASCAR Hall of Fame 200.

“Texas was a really good race for us from start to finish,” said Self. “We kept adjusting on our truck and it responded well which allowed us to be in a position to capitalize during the green-white-checkered finish.

“It wasn’t a win, but the finish felt like one and lifted the spirits of everyone on the team. Hopefully, we can go to Martinsville and enjoy more of the same.”

The 24-year-old returns to the 0.526-mile track poised to make his sixth start and seek his first top-10 finish. In his previous five 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 close to 40 trucks on the track, it becomes very crowded and even physical. Much like any short track, track position is critical so my crew chief Ryan (Salomon) and I will spend some time in race setup mode and see where we’re at.”

Salomon will continue to lead the team as crew chief this weekend. He made his debut two races ago at Kansas Speedway and has already led the team to their first top-10 of 2020.

“I feel like things are going really well with Ryan,” commented Self. “It’s never easy to swap crew chiefs during a season but Ryan has slid into the team nicely and I feel the chemistry is very solid. He’s been able to take the feedback I give them and he’s been able to make our No. 22 GO TEXAN | AM Technical Solutions Chevrolet Silverado better for the finish.

“I look forward to seeing what we can do over the next two races.”

Even out of the Playoff picture, it’s still business as usual for the AM Racing team as Self expects the upward performance trend to continue to climb aboard his No. 22 GO TEXAN | AM Technical Solutions Chevrolet Silverado from now until Phoenix (Ariz.) Raceway in November.

“We’re a relatively small team, but sometimes David can beat the Goliath and at times we’ve been able to show that on track with our heart and passion of racing,” added Self. “We have a lot of people, including our partners who are devoted to our race team and focused on seeing our team succeed not only in 2020 but as we start to think ahead to 2021.”

In addition to primary partner GO TEXAN, AM Technical Solutions, Don’t mess with Texas, AIRBOX Air Purifier, CForce Bottling Company, Flying Circle, Kreuz Market and Prasek’s will serve as associate partners in the 22nd race of the year.

In 105 NGROTS races, Self, the 2014 ARCA Menards Series Rookie of the Year, has two top-fives (second at Daytona 2017, fifth at Michigan 2019) and eight top-10 finishes. The Texan maintains an average finish of 18.7 during his five years of competition.

The Austin, Texas native is nestled 16th in the championship standings with two races remaining.

Margins PAC fuels AM Racing, Austin Wayne Self ‘s return to Texas Motor Speedway

Margins PAC fuels AM Racing, Austin Wayne Self ‘s return to Texas Motor Speedway

FORT WORTH, Tex: Just three races to go.

The NASCAR Gander RV & Outdoors Truck Series is approaching the checkered flag in the 2020 season, but for Austin Wayne Self and his AM Racing team, there is still plenty of work to be done.

With Texas Motor Speedway, Martinsville (Va.) Speedway and the season-finale at Phoenix (Ariz.) Raceway all on the horizon, Self is focused on ending the year on a high note and putting his family-owned team in a good spot ahead of 2021.

Self carries his Statesville, N.C.-based team back to his home state of Texas after a solid top-20 last weekend at Kansas Speedway. While the team’s finish was hindered late in the race, the team is upbeat about their chances of earning a top-10 finish in Sunday’s SpeedyCash.com 400.

“It’s always important for us to go back to Texas and run well,” said Self. “This is a hometown race for me, and I always put a lot of pressure to run well. Luckily, I’ve had some success at Texas and hope we can continue that on Sunday.”

Self will make his ninth Truck Series start at the 1.5-mile speedway and has delivered seven top-20 finishes in the last eight races and has not finished worse than 22nd.

Noted as one of the better intermediate tracks for Self, he hopes to better his 14th place performance at the 1.5-mile intermediate track from this summer.

“Texas has been a solid racetrack for us,” added Self. “For whatever reason, we’ve always been able to produce solid finishes – but we are hunting a top-10 run on Sunday afternoon. That would be awesome for us.”

Sunday’s race will also mark the debut of a new sponsor for the AM Racing team.

Margins PAC will serve as the primary sponsor for Self and the AM Racing team in the 21st race of the season.

Margins PAC is formed as an independent general-purpose political action committee (PAC). Margins PAC’s primary purpose is to address various issues of public policy.

Margins PAC’s mission is to aggregate and give voice to those middle-ground voters via grassroots organization.

In coordination with Margins PAC, Self’s No. 22 Chevrolet Silverado will run a Trump Pence 2020 paint scheme ahead of the upcoming presidential election on Tues., Nov. 3.

“We are incredibly proud to be a part of this grand tradition and look forward to a long-lasting relationship with Austin Wayne Self and AM Racing starting this weekend at Texas Motor Speedway,” offered W T Skip Leake, Treasurer of Margins PAC.

“We are proud to become a NASCAR sponsor and wish the team the best of luck in Sunday’s race.”

Self added, “With the support of Margins PAC, I am excited to have Trump Pence 2020 on the truck this weekend. Texas is a special place for me and with the elections coming up soon, hopefully, this should motivate people to vote!

“As for our performance, I also feel that we have found something in our truck that we really like, and I think Texas would be a great place for us to shift our momentum around for the final three races of the year.”

Ryan Salmon will continue to lead the team as crew chief this weekend. He made his debut last weekend at Kansas.

In addition to primary sponsor  Margins PAC, GO TEXAN, AM Technical Solutions, Don’t Mess with Texas, AIRBOX Air Purifier, CForce Bottling Company, Flying Circle, Kreuz Market and Prasek’s will serve as associate sponsors in the 21st race of the year.

In 104 NGROTS races, Self, 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 18.8 during his five years of competition.

The Austin, Texas native is nestled 16th in the championship standings with three races remaining.

“I’m really looking forward to getting back to Kentucky and running on the new surface,” said Self.  “Although this will be my first time at Kentucky in the Truck Series, I’ve run quite a few laps there in ARCA. It’s always been a fast track with a lot of character. It   will be interesting to see how the new surface changes things up – I’m expecting a fast track with tons of grip.”

Nearing the official half-way point to the NCWTS season, Self and his No. 22  AM Technical Solutions Toyota team, are dedicated to improving on and off the track during their freshman year season  of Truck    racing.

 

“It’s a long season – we’ve had our share of up and down moments, but our team continues to make strides in the right direction. This team continues to do whatever it takes to put a strong Toyota under me each and every week.”

 

Austin Wayne  Self currently occupies the 19th spot in the overall driver point standings .  After 9  of 23 NCWTS events, Self carries a 23.0 average starting position to go along with a 20.6 average finishing spot.

Austin Wayne Self Collected at Gateway Finishes 28th

AUSTIN, TEXAS (June 27, 2016) – Austin Wayne Self had a less than desirable outing this past weekend as the 20-year old driver was taken out of competition early in a late race accident resulting in a disappointing 28th place finish in Saturday night’s NASCAR Camping World Truck Series Drivin’ for Linemen 200 at Gateway Motorsports Park.Gateway1

Self, driving the No.22 AM Technical Solutions Toyota, started 26th and appeared to be headed for another top-20 finish until lap-120 when the truck driven by Jordan Anderson clipped the back of Self’s truck, turning him up the race track and hard into the outside wall.   As Self’s truck rolled down the track, Jennifer Jo Cobb drove in at speed, violently slamming into the side of Self’s disabled truck.

“Obviously a very disappointing night and one torn up truck,” said Self.  “It’s really too bad our race had to end like that.  He (Anderson) got into me from the back and that’s all it took – I was along for the ride after that.”

Self gives credit to NASCAR for providing safety policies and procedures.

“That was a pretty wicked hit.  You’ve gotta tip your hat to NASCAR, they’ve done a great job keeping us drivers safe inside these trucks.”

The NASCAR Camping Word Truck Series will break for the Fourth of July weekend before returning to action in the Buckle Up in Your Truck 225 at Kentucky Speedway on Thursday, July 7.
