AM Racing, Austin Wayne Self look to Kentucky for rebound

AM Racing, Austin Wayne Self look to Kentucky for rebound

SPARTA, Ky: With the Holiday off-weekend behind them, AM Racing and driver Austin Wayne Self (@AustinWSelf) are ready to get back down to business in Saturday night’s Buckle Up Your Truck 225 at Kentucky Speedway.

The Statesville, N.C.-based team is hoping that the seventh race of the season is a good opportunity to bounce back from a tough showing at Pocono (Pa.) Raceway two weeks ago when Self was collected in two separate incidents in the opening laps of the event.

Shaking off the tough luck at the “Tricky Triangle” – Self leans on Kentucky’s 1.5-mile speedway as an opportunity to get team back on track for a busy month of racing ahead.

“It was hard to have that off week because, after Pocono, I think everyone on this AM Racing team was ready to go back to the track ad bounce back immediately,” said Self.

“But the break allowed us to catch our breath, settle down and refocus for one of the races that I always look forward to.”

Self has four prior Truck Series starts at the Sparta located track and earned a track-best sixth-place finish last July.

He also has two prior ARCA Menards Series starts from 2014 – 2015, yielding two top-12 finishes.

All things considered; Kentucky is one of those races circled on the AM Racing calendar in the shop as an opportunity to build on last year’s finish.

“It was a chaotic race last July, but we earned that finish,” offered Self. “We worked hard, Eddie (Troconis, crew chief) made some great adjustments on our No. 22 GO TEXAN | AM Technical Solutions Chevrolet Silverado and I think the notes that we have from last year can be even more beneficial this weekend.”

With NASCAR still limiting the series’ time at the race track, the Truck Series won’t have any practice or qualifying before hitting the track and while that pivotal track time can be essential, Self believes it could set the tone for an exciting race.

“Kentucky is really fast with sweeping corners,” he added. “You really need to get your truck handling well over the bumps and get the launch off the corners to carry the speed on the straightaways to make a pass.

“With no practice or qualifying, I think most teams will rely on their setup from last July which worked fairly good for us during the race. With qualifying being thrown out the window, I think you’re going to have some fast trucks stacked throughout the field which should make the race more exciting but will keep us drivers up on our toes too.”

Traditionally, the garage and pit road area at Kentucky is flooded with family members and close relatives who have come to cheer on Self and the AM Racing team. However, with the garage access currently restricted and no fans expected in attendance, Self knows those members who still support his team this season just virtually.

“It’s a bummer that we don’t have fans back in the stands and can have people in the garage, but I understand the reasoning,” he said. “I know I have a lot of family who will be cheering us on Saturday night from in front of their televisions or radios. Hopefully, we can have a finish like we did last year and take that momentum to Texas next week!”

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

In 90 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 22nd in the championship standings with 17 races remaining.

As for Kentucky, Self says he is confident in the truck his AM Racing team led by crew chief Bill Henderson is bringing to the track and he hopes to deliver his fourth top-15 finish of the year aboard an AM Racing prepared truck.

Kentucky Proves to be Unkind to Austin Wayne Self

AUSTIN, TEXAS (July 8, 2016) – Austin Wayne Self’s string of bad luck continued after finishing a disappointing 27th in Thursday night’s NASCAR Camping World Truck Series (NCWTS) Buckle Up In Your Truck 225 from Kentucky Speedway.

AWSelfSelf, making his first career NCWTS start at Kentucky Speedway, had a strong Toyota yet was unable to complete the scheduled 150-lap event, after a fierce three-wide battle on lap-45 ended with the air being taken off the nose of Self’s truck, getting him loose and into the outside wall.  At the time, the twenty-year old Self, who started from the twenty-third position, was battling the No.98 of Rico Abreu for the 17th spot.

After sustaining right front-side damage to his No.22 AM Technical Solutions Toyota, Self would pit for repairs.  Hopeful, the crew jumped into action to access the damage all while attempting to keep Self on the lead lap.  As Self exited pit road with intentions to return, it became obvious the damage sustained during the accident was more than just cosmetic.  Under caution and circling the 1.5 mile newly repaved Kentucky track Self severed an oil line causing the rookie driver to bring his Toyota behind the wall for more attention.

After losing 31-laps making repairs Self was able to re-fire the engine and return to action hoping to salvage as much as possible.   Limping his crippled Toyota around the track Self would eventually succumb to transmission failure while in the 27th position.

“I am disappointed with our finish tonight at Kentucky Speedway. We got into an accident on lap 45 where we severed an oil line. My entire AM Racing team worked really hard to get us back out there and gain some positions on the track.”

“We had a solid run going there, picked up 8 positions. I hate that we weren’t able to run the whole race and bring the AM Technical Solutions Toyota home with a good finish tonight.”

SelfDespite the lackluster finish the AM Racing team walked away with their heads held high – knowing their efforts will soon pay dividends.

“These guys don’t evet quit.  When things went bad they kicked into another gear and got me back out on the track when all seemed lost.  Everyone takes a lot of pride in what we do.  We had a great truck tonight – but our night just got spoiled due to hard racing and some bad luck.”

The AM Racing team will re-gather over the next week before returning to NCWTS competition for dirt action at Eldora Speedway in the Aspen Dental Eldora Dirt Derby on Wednesday, July 20.

Post Kentucky Race Report

AWS_OnTrack(Mooresville, NC, September 28, 2015–) Every lap counts in racing and Austin Wayne Self proved that theory to be true Saturday afternoon in the Crosley Brands 150 at the Kentucky Speedway.

Self, driver of the AM Technical Solutions No. 98 for Mason Mitchell Motorsports (MMM) gained seven positions during the course of the final 50 laps to finish 11th at the conclusion of the 100 laps.

Those positions proved to be vital as Self was able to move into third place in ARCA championship standings with one race remaining in the 2015 ARCA season. Self trails second place driver Josh Williams by 60 points heading into the finale at the Kansas Speedway on October 16th.

“We battled a tight condition all weekend long,” Self stated. “Our car was good for five to ten laps and then it was quite a handful. The MMM crew made great changes during the race and it helped the cars handling a lot.”

“We have a great opportunity to end up second in points at Kansas.” It’s going to take a complete team effort, I know everyone on this MMM team will provide me with the best opportunity to end up in victory lane.”

AWS_PreRace“I really want to end the season on a positive note for AM Technical Solutions, Pirate Energy and everyone on this MMM team. Kansas is my favorite mile and a half track that we race on. I am looking forward to finishing the season on a positive note.

The Crosley 150 at the Kentucky Speedway was postponed until Saturday afternoon due to a consistent rain Friday evening.

Self has one win in the 2015 season at the Winchester Speedway in June. The second year driver will look to avenge a late race crash at the Kansas Speedway in 2014 while battling for the race lead late.

The ARCA Racing Series has raced at the Kansas Speedway since the track opened in 2001. The October 16th event will mark the Series 15th race at the 1.5 mile track.

The 2015 ARCA finale will take place on October 16th at the Kansas Speedway for the Kansas 98.9. Fans will be able to watch the final event of the 2015 season on Fox Sports 1 beginning at 8:30 p.m. EST. ARCA will also provide live timing and scoring for all on-track activity presented by AM Technical Solutions and Pirate Energy.
