Austin Wayne Self Pre-Race Quotes:

On Pocono Raceway: “I am eager for a little redemption this weekend at Pocono Raceway. We didn’t have a good race at Nashville, and I only ran five laps here in a truck last year because of a crash.

“I’ve always enjoyed racing at Pocono because it’s such a unique race track which provides the opportunity for strategies and some good racing. We need to get ourselves back on track with a top-10 finish on Saturday afternoon and I think with a little luck we can do that with our No. 22 GO TEXAN | AM Technical Solutions Chevrolet Silverado.”

 On Nashville Superspeedway: “It was not the night we were looking for. We struggled with the handling of our No. 22 GO TEXAN | At Home Concert Experience Chevrolet Silverado throughout the day and night and never could get a comfortable balance.

“We’ll learn from this and be better. Hopefully, we have a major rebound at Pocono.”

On 2021 Season: “We are right there on the cusp of making the Truck Series Playoffs. It’s going to take a lot of work, but we still have a shot.

“We’ve been very solid to the start of 2021. We were a little off last weekend at Nashville, but we are determined to bounce back and produce some strong results in this crucial summer stretch.”

The Statesville, N.C.-based team will sport the signage of GO TEXAN and AM Technical Solutions on the No. 22 Chevrolet Silverado for the 12th NASCAR Camping World Truck Series (NCWTS) race of the season.

GO TEXAN is a widely recognized brand. It represents a diverse collection of people, products and services that are genuinely Texan.  Whether it’s grown, sewn or served on a plate, more than 26 million Texans shop, travel and dine out in full support of Texas business and agriculture.

Headquartered in Austin, TX, AM Technical Solutions (AMTS) was founded in 1994.

AM Technical Solutions is a Global Architecture, Engineering & Construction firm specializing in the high-tech markets. AMTS has managed over $20B of global capital projects for over 170 different customers in 24 countries and across five continents.

Welcome Aboard: This weekend at Nashville, AM Racing welcomes the At Home Concert Experience powered by Soldiers for Faith.

Amidst the uniquely challenging environment created by the lockdowns, the At Home Concert Experience (ahcx) was founded by Kelly McAndrew, founder of Soldiers For Faith Ministries, and Chad Mattson, lead singer and founding member of the Christian band Unspoken.

Not immune from today’s environment, musicians have been very directly affected through the canceling of concerts and closing of other performance venues where their special gifts have been muted and their livelihoods virtually shut down.

The audience has also been impacted as we are unable to gather in person for Christian fellowship and worship.

In discussing the difficulties faced by our fellow Christians and the rest of the world and inspired by Hebrews 10:24-25, the concept of creating a virtual concert series of Christian artists was created.

The spirit of this passage led them to the concept of an intimate, highly personalized, and interactive Christian concert experience — the At Home Concert Experience.

Career Year: Just past the halfway point of the 2021 NASCAR Camping World Truck Series, Austin Wayne Self and AM Racing are enjoying a banner year.

11 races into the season, the team hasn’t finished worse than 23rd and maintains an average finish of 15.9 entering the Rackley Roofing 200.

Self’s current 13th place fitting in the championship standings is the highest he’s been this deep into the year. He is mirroring his 2018 Truck Series season where he finished a career-best 12th in the championship standings maintaining an average finishing position of 17.0.

How Did She Do? Last week before Austin Wayne Self competed at Texas Motor Speedway, his wife Jennifer Self competed in the return of the Better Half Dash as a virtual event in collaboration with iRacing.

The Better Half iRacing Dash features the women of NASCAR, highlighting their contributions to the sport and allowing them to raise money for charity.

Partaking in the virtual Texas Motor Speedway and competing in a Legends Car, Self contended for a top-five finish in her No. 22 AIRBOX Air Purifier car but a late race incident relegated her to a sixth-place result.

Self, the sister of fellow Truck Series driver Jordan Anderson was the 2017 winner of the seventh-annual Better Half Dash in a 25-lap Bandolero real life event on October 6 at Charlotte (N.C.) Motor Speedway.

Austin Wayne Self Pre-Race Quotes:

On Kansas Speedway: “I’ve turned a lot of laps at Kansas Speedway and I’m ready to turn some more on Saturday night. I’m really excited about going back to Kansas knowing how strong our Truck was at Las Vegas last month.

“Ryan (Salomon, crew chief) has worked extremely hard to bring the best truck he can to the race track without the benefit of practice or qualifying and I think our No. 22 AIRBOX Air Purifier Chevrolet Silverado will be able to contend for a top-10 finish on Saturday night.”

On Richmond Raceway: “For whatever reason, we just could not get our No. 22 GO TEXAN | AM Technical Solutions Chevrolet Silverado to come to life as we needed it too.

“We struggled all day with the balance and then handling and even though we made gains – we ran out of laps to contend for a top-15 finish.”

On 2021 Season After Six Races: “Honestly, I think we have proven a lot as a race team in 2021 but there is still more work to be done.

“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 AIRBOX Air Purifier Chevrolet and hope everything else will work out for itself.”

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.”

Austin Wayne Self Pre-Race Quotes:

On Daytona (Fla.) international Speedway Road Course: “I am actually pretty pumped to go the Daytona Road Course this weekend. Our AM Racing team had some pretty good luck there year. “I don’t know what it is but I seem to really enjoy competing at these road courses in the Truck Series.

“We finished 11th there last year, anything less than that will be a disappointment for sure.”

On Daytona (Fla.) international Speedway Finish: “I’m proud of the effort from Ryan (Salomon, crew chief) and the entire AM Racing team. They built me a fast and competitive truck and when push came to shove on the last lap we literally got shoved out of the way.

“That was a bummer because we recovered pretty well from a hiccup earlier in the race. Everyone knew we were there though and that’s something for us to be proud of looking ahead.”

On 2021 Truck Series Outlook: “I think it’s going to be a season to remember for the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series. The schedule went through a shakeup which should produce some surprises and I’m optimistic that we can accel through the diverse schedule and contend for one of the Playoff spots.”
