Austin Wayne Self Quote: “I cannot thank the AM Racing team enough for bringing me a fast No. 22 GO TEXAN | AM Technical Solutions Chevrolet. We were right there fighting for a top-10 finish and got spun there late in Stage 3 and really had to hustle to get back to the top-15.

“A fast truck allowed us to do that. If we had a handful more of laps, I feel like we could have gotten inside the top-10. We’ll take this finish in stride and head to Las Vegas and roll the dice and hope it lands on a strong top-10 finish.”

Austin Wayne Self Pre-Race Quotes:

On Bristol Motor Speedway: “I love Bristol. We don’t have the results to show that I love Bristol, but hopefully we can change that on Thursday night. It will be an aggressive race – especially being a cutoff event for the Playoffs.

“I don’t plan to put myself in a position that may jeopardize a Playoff driver, but Bristol is a tight, fast short track. Things happen in a hurry, and we are hunting goals of our own at AM Racing.

“We had a top-10 finish on the dirt in March and I’d love to bring home a top-10 finish on the concrete with our No. 22 GO TEXAN | AM Technical Solutions Chevrolet Silverado.”

On 2021 Season: “It’s hard to believe that the year is starting to wrap up. We only have five races left on the schedule and I definitely want to make the best of all of them.

“There are some good tracks left for our AM Racing over the next two months or so and I think there is definitely an opportunity to score more top-10s and hopefully even a top-five before we close the books on the 2021 season at Phoenix in November.”

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.”

AM Racing, Austin Wayne Self hunt for top-10 finish at Bristol Motor Speedway

AM Racing, Austin Wayne Self hunt for top-10 finish at Bristol Motor Speedway

BRISTOL, Tenn: 16 races down, seven to go.

On the heels of a strong performance last Thursday night at Richmond (Va.) Raceway in the ToyotaCare 250, Austin Wayne Self and his AM Racing team head to Bristol (Tenn.) Motor Speedway for another Thursday night showdown in the UNOH 200 presented by Ohio Logistics.

And with the NASCAR Gander RV & Outdoors Truck Series set to open their Playoffs in Thunder Valley, Self won’t have an opportunity to go for a championship title, but he does plan to make some noise of his own over the final two months of the season.

“I always look forward to Bristol, because it’s such a cool place to race,” said Self.

“Right now, I think our AM Racing team has some good momentum and even if we don’t have the all the finishes to show for it lately, we’ve had some really fast No. 22 GO TEXAN | AM Technical Solutions Chevrolet Silverados and I hope we can continue to showcase that at Bristol.”

Self, 24, has four previous Truck Series starts at Bristol with back-to-back top-15 finishes in 2018 and 2019 respectively and is determined to up the ante in the UNOH 200 this year.

Hunting for their first top-10 finish of the season, Self says it’s their mission to execute that goal and Bristol is certainly a place where the goal can be accomplished.

“We’re hunting a top-10 finish this week, we want to get ourselves there,” added Self. “I think we can do it.

“The last two years – we’ve had rather good results at Bristol – all things considered. You can’t hide at Bristol. But I feel like I’ve become a better driver there with experience and track time.

“Certainly not having practice or qualifying can be a little of a hindrance, but it is the same boat for everyone, so we just have to take the challenge in stride. Bristol is one of those tracks where momentum and focus are key – while just making sure you have the grip in the truck to be able to capitalize on key passing moments.

“Staying out of trouble too is huge at Bristol. As we get closer and closer to the end of the season, the intensity ramps up and the stakes are high and that sometimes leads to a lot of action and Bristol is known to be a place where the action can hot and heavy.”

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 partners GO TEXAN and AM Technical Solutions, AIRBOX Air Purifier, Don’t mess with Texas, CForce Bottling Company, Flying Circle, Kreuz Market and Prasek’s will serve as associate partners in the 17th race of the year.

In 100 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 18.6 during his five years of competition.

The Austin, Texas native is nestled 17th in the championship standings with seven races remaining.
