AM Racing, Austin Wayne Self ready to tame Monster Mile

DOVER, Del: Bouncing back in spectacular fashion from their late-race mishap at Michigan with a season-high 11th place run last Sunday at the Daytona (Fla.) International Speedway Road Course, Austin Wayne Self and his AM Racing team head to Dover (Del.) International Speedway determined to deliver a top-10 finish in Friday afternoon’s KDI Office Technology 200.

Switching gears from road racing to short track racing, Friday’s  200-lap slugfest is the first of five consecutive races with the track length under 1.5-miles and taking the series’ through the end of their first race of the Playoffs next month at Bristol (Tenn.) Motor Speedway.

While looking for a Playoff spot by virtue of a victory in the NASCAR Gander RV & Outdoors Truck Series (NGROTS), Self and his Eddie Troconis-led team have been showcasing speed over the past six weeks which undoubtedly puts them as a sleeper should the carpet unravel, the dots connect and luck on their side over the next four races.

“I’m really proud of this AM Racing team,” said Self. “While Michigan was a bummer with our finish, our performance was something to be proud of. Last weekend at Daytona we were able to showcase that whether big track, small track or road course – we have speed in our No. 22 GO TEXAN | AM Technical Solutions Chevrolet Silverados and it has our team upbeat about this next stretch of races.”

Self returns to Dover where he has three previous starts in the NASCAR Gander RV & Outdoors Truck Series, including a track-best of 15th in 2018.

“Dover is a cool race track with a lot of banking but it’s a place where I feel like you have to be aggressive in order to have a good finish,” said Self.”

“Track position is important at a place like Dover and while we’ll be likely starting mid-pack again based on the formula, it will be important for us to use the start and restarts to our advantage to get as many positions as we can. Sometimes, the race take a long green-flag look to it and others it’s a caution-fest, so you have to be prepared for anything.

“I’ve never been to Dover without practice or qualifying, so we’re going to start with our basics and what we learned last year there and hope we can build off that for the rest of the race.”

Of course, the goal is to try and put the Statesville, N.C.-based AM Racing team in Victory Lane before the Playoffs launch at Bristol, but the Austin, Tex. native says if his team doesn’t make a Playoff berth this year – he expects the 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 we’re making big strides 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 13th race of the year.

In 96 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 18.5 during his five years of competition.

The Austin, Texas native is nestled 17th in the championship standings with 11 races remaining.

Austin Wayne Self focused on Dover International Speedway return

DOVER, Del. – With the NASCAR Gander Outdoors Truck Series back from a spring break sabbatical, Austin Wayne Self (@AustinWSelf), driver of the No. 22 GO TEXAN | AM Technical Solutions Chevrolet Silverado heads to Dover (Del.) International Speedway eyeing his second top-10 finish of the season in Friday afternoon’s JEGS 200.

Self, 22 returns to the “Monster Mile” set to make his third career Gander Outdoors Truck Series start at the famed one-mile oval but more importantly hopes to better his 15th place finish he earned last year.

“Glad to get back to racing and to drive our No. 22 GO TEXAN | AM Technical Solutions Chevrolet Silverado Friday afternoon at Dover,” said Self.

“I love Dover. It’s a cool race track with a lot of banking but it’s a place where I feel like you have to be aggressive in order to have a good finish.

“I’m looking forward to working with my crew chief Eddie (Troconis) and see if we can put ourselves in contention for our second top-10 run of the year.”

Being a nearly five-week hiatus from Texas Motor Speedway to Dover, Self says his AM Racing team has been able to work hard in the race shop prepping trucks ahead of the grueling summer stretch – but the Austin, Texas native says the downtime has allowed his Mooresville, N.C-based team to play catchup with the intent to enhance their on-track product.

“We’ve been busy,” Self said. “When you have four races to start the year almost back-to-back, it didn’t allow us a lot of time to work on our trucks to get better. The “spring break” did that for us.

I feel like we’ve gotten caught up and I’m really excited to roll out some of these trucks to see what we can do.”

Despite missing two races, Self sits 18th in the series standings and while facing a deficit, Self believes he has the team and equipment to allow him to fight back into the top-15 in the championship standings.

“There’s still a long ways to go in the season and our team has a lot to be proud of,” offered Self. “We’ve shown that we have speed and that we have the capabilities of running inside the top-10 on a regular basis, we just have to keep plugging away and we’ll produce the finishes I know we’re capable of.”

The Texas Department of Agriculture’s GO TEXAN program and AM Technical Solutions will support Self in his 67th career start.

GO TEXAN, celebrating its 20th Birthday this year, represents Texas agri-business on state, national and international levels by building recognition with the GO TEXAN mark.

Along with its signature mark in the shape of Texas, GO TEXAN celebrates, promotes and supports the business savvy and plainspoken grit Texas agriculture is known for throughout the world.

Don’t mess with Texas, Abbie Gregg Inc., CForce Bottling Company, Flying Circle and Kreuz Market will serve as associate partners in the sixth race of the year.

In 66 NGOTS races, the 2015 ARCA Menards Series Rookie of the Year has one top-five (second at Daytona 2017) and five top-10 finishes. The Texan maintains an average finish of 18.2 during his three years of competition.

Transmission Failure Ends Austin Wayne Self’s Dover Chances Early

Austin, TX (May 14, 2016) – For the second consecutive week of NASCAR Camping World Truck Series competition, Austin Wayne Self was plagued by unforeseen circumstances outside his control.Dover1

 

Down on luck, Self’s Dover chances came to an abrupt end after losing his transmission 43-laps into the JACOB Companies 200 at Dover International Speedway.

 

Friday’s early exit resulted into a season-low 32nd place finish for the No.22 AM Technical Solutions Toyota team. This has been especially disappointing considering Self and his new team started the season with three consecutive top-20 finishes.

 

“We just seem to have bad luck the last couple of weeks,’ said Self.  I hate for my guys and the entire AM Technical Solutions team. I know these sort of things are part of racing and every team goes through this at some point but it still doesn’t make it any easier.  I guess we’ll go home and get ready for Charlotte next weekend. Hopefully things will turn around!”

 

DoverThe AM Technical Solutions team will hit the reset button for next week’s North Carolina Education Lottery 200 at Charlotte Motor Speedway.

Monster Mile Awaits Austin Wayne Self

Austin, TX (May 9, 2016) – After a disappointing outcome in last week’s NASCAR Camping World Truck Series (NCWTS) event at Kansas Speedway, Austin Wayne Self is determined to rebound when the series invades the often tricky Dover International Speedway for the Dover 200 on Friday, May 13martinsville11

Dover, known as the “Monster Mile”, has a longstanding reputation for fierce side-by-side racing often delivering catastrophic results for drivers looking to tame the demanding one-mile concrete oval.

Self, who completed a successful test last month at Dover, is cautiously optimistic.

“We had a great test (Dover) a couple weeks back and I think we learned a lot which we’ll apply to our Toyota Tundra this weekend,” said Self.  “Dover can be tricky. It’s going to be a constant battle for position each and every lap.  It’s one of those tracks that can come up and bite you at any time if you’re not smart about it.  I just gotta keep my focus, run a smart race – complete all 200-laps.”

Self, driver of the No.22 AM Technical Solutions-Black’s Barbeque Toyota, will make his fifth series start of the ’16 truck campaign.  The Austin, Texas native currently occupies the 18th spot in the NCWTS driver standings and sits fourth in the Sunoco Rookie of the Year chase.

“Our young team continues to battle tough each and every week.  I’m proud of our guys and their never quite attitude.  We definitely didn’t get the results we wanted last week but we’re ready to get back at it at Dover.”
