AM Racing set to return to NASCAR Camping World Truck Series in 2021

STATESVILLE, N.C.: AM Racing confirmed today they will return to the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series (NCWTS) this season with Austin Wayne Self as the driver of the team’s No. 22 Chevrolet Silverado beginning with the season-opening NextEra Energy Resources 250 at Daytona (Fla.) International Speedway on Feb. 12, 2021.

The team will continue to be housed out of its 30,000 square foot facility in Statesville located off Interstate 40 East.

Ahead of the team’s fifth season of Truck Series competition, Ryan Salomon will return as crew chief for the 2021 season.

Salomon joined the team last fall in the 20th race of the season and contributed to Self earning two top-10 finishes in two of the final four races in 2020.

“I’m excited about the 2021 season,” said Self. “It’s been a very productive offseason for our group and with some huge momentum at the end of last season, I think everyone is looking forward to getting the new year going and seeing what kind of results we can deliver.”

The 2014 ARCA Menards Series Rookie of the Year also had a busy offseason personally.

In December, Self married longtime girlfriend Jennifer Anderson, sister of fellow NASCAR Camping World Truck Series driver Jordan Anderson.

During the winter, AM Racing also absorbed Win-Tron Racing, the ARCA Menards Series team owned by AM Racing general manager Kevin Cywinski. Combining the two entities has always been part of a long-term development strategy.

“There is a lot of good things happening at AM Racing,” offered Cywinski. “With the changes we made during the offseason personnel-wise, as well as solidifying our infrastructure, we believe that the upcoming season will be our best yet.

“AM Racing looks forward to Daytona in both the ARCA Menards Series and NASCAR Camping World Truck Series with Howie DiSavino III and Austin Wayne Self.”

AM Racing also announced that marketing partners GO TEXAN, AM Technical Solutions, Don’t mess with Texas, AIRBOX Air Purifier, CForce Bottling Company, Flying Circle, and Kreuz Market will continue their relationship with the team this season.

GO TEXAN and AM Technical Solutions will support Self’s sixth NASCAR Camping World Truck Series race at Daytona, the site of his runner-up performance at the “World Center of Racing” in 2017.

“I’m appreciative of the opportunity to continue to lead AM Racing as crew chief with Austin Wayne Self,” sounded Salomon. “I think we surprised a few people with our performances at the end of the year and that has only given us the motivation and desire to make sure we continue that in 2021.”

AM Racing, Austin Wayne Self ready for Daytona

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla.: The offseason is over, and the start of the 2020 NASCAR Gander RV & Outdoors Truck Series season is here.

For driver Austin Wayne Self and his AM Racing team, the duo heads to Daytona (Fla.) International Speedway this week looking to start the new season off on the right foot and collect back-to-back top-10 finishes at the “World Center of Racing.”

“The offseason went pretty quick, but I’m ready to get back to the track and get after it,” said Self.

“It’s a been a busy couple months with the big shop move and working hard to better our program for the season. A good finish at Daytona on Friday night would be a great reward for everyone’s efforts.”

The Austin, Texas native will make his fifth start at the 2.5-mile superspeedway on Friday night and statistically speaking, it’s the home of his career-best finish in Truck Series competition.

In 2017, Self-guided his truck through a massive last-lap accident that propelled him to finish second. Two years later, he returned to the top-10 with a solid ninth-place result last February.

This weekend though, Self believes he has a truck that could win the race.

“Our superspeedway program was very strong last year,” added Self. “Of course, a lot of things have to go your way to get to the checkered flag, but a fast truck certainly helps. My crew chief Eddie (Troconis) has a niche for this type of racing and he works super hard to make sure we have what it takes when it comes to superspeedway racing.

“I enjoy the intensity and strategy of this type of racing and I think I’ve been able to show that over the years. Daytona has been accustomed to producing first-time winners in the past and I’d like to add my name to that list.”

For the series’ first of two trips to Florida this season, AM Technical Solutions will serve alongside GO TEXAN as a major associate partner for Friday night’s race.

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

In 84 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 18.0 during his four years of competition.
