Margins PAC fuels AM Racing, Austin Wayne Self ‘s return to Texas Motor Speedway

Margins PAC fuels AM Racing, Austin Wayne Self ‘s return to Texas Motor Speedway

FORT WORTH, Tex: Just three races to go.

The NASCAR Gander RV & Outdoors Truck Series is approaching the checkered flag in the 2020 season, but for Austin Wayne Self and his AM Racing team, there is still plenty of work to be done.

With Texas Motor Speedway, Martinsville (Va.) Speedway and the season-finale at Phoenix (Ariz.) Raceway all on the horizon, Self is focused on ending the year on a high note and putting his family-owned team in a good spot ahead of 2021.

Self carries his Statesville, N.C.-based team back to his home state of Texas after a solid top-20 last weekend at Kansas Speedway. While the team’s finish was hindered late in the race, the team is upbeat about their chances of earning a top-10 finish in Sunday’s SpeedyCash.com 400.

“It’s always important for us to go back to Texas and run well,” said Self. “This is a hometown race for me, and I always put a lot of pressure to run well. Luckily, I’ve had some success at Texas and hope we can continue that on Sunday.”

Self will make his ninth Truck Series start at the 1.5-mile speedway and has delivered seven top-20 finishes in the last eight races and has not finished worse than 22nd.

Noted as one of the better intermediate tracks for Self, he hopes to better his 14th place performance at the 1.5-mile intermediate track from this summer.

“Texas has been a solid racetrack for us,” added Self. “For whatever reason, we’ve always been able to produce solid finishes – but we are hunting a top-10 run on Sunday afternoon. That would be awesome for us.”

Sunday’s race will also mark the debut of a new sponsor for the AM Racing team.

Margins PAC will serve as the primary sponsor for Self and the AM Racing team in the 21st race of the season.

Margins PAC is formed as an independent general-purpose political action committee (PAC). Margins PAC’s primary purpose is to address various issues of public policy.

Margins PAC’s mission is to aggregate and give voice to those middle-ground voters via grassroots organization.

In coordination with Margins PAC, Self’s No. 22 Chevrolet Silverado will run a Trump Pence 2020 paint scheme ahead of the upcoming presidential election on Tues., Nov. 3.

“We are incredibly proud to be a part of this grand tradition and look forward to a long-lasting relationship with Austin Wayne Self and AM Racing starting this weekend at Texas Motor Speedway,” offered W T Skip Leake, Treasurer of Margins PAC.

“We are proud to become a NASCAR sponsor and wish the team the best of luck in Sunday’s race.”

Self added, “With the support of Margins PAC, I am excited to have Trump Pence 2020 on the truck this weekend. Texas is a special place for me and with the elections coming up soon, hopefully, this should motivate people to vote!

“As for our performance, I also feel that we have found something in our truck that we really like, and I think Texas would be a great place for us to shift our momentum around for the final three races of the year.”

Ryan Salmon will continue to lead the team as crew chief this weekend. He made his debut last weekend at Kansas.

In addition to primary sponsor  Margins PAC, GO TEXAN, AM Technical Solutions, Don’t Mess with Texas, AIRBOX Air Purifier, CForce Bottling Company, Flying Circle, Kreuz Market and Prasek’s will serve as associate sponsors in the 21st race of the year.

In 104 NGROTS races, Self, 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 18.8 during his five years of competition.

The Austin, Texas native is nestled 16th in the championship standings with three races remaining.

AM Racing, Austin Wayne Self hope for a big performance at Texas Motor Speedway

AM Racing, Austin Wayne Self hopes for a big performance at Texas Motor Speedway

FORT WORTH, Tex.: The NASCAR Gander RV & Outdoors Truck Series (NGROTS) will take center stage Saturday night at Texas Motor Speedway for the Vankor 250 and for driver Austin Wayne Self and his AM Racing team, any race in the Lone Star State is huge.

Nearly 210 miles south of Fort Worth’s Texas Motor Speedway sits the city of Austin and the hometown for the 24-year-old driver.

And while the coronavirus pandemic will keep his routinely influx of activity and guests from attending this weekend’s race, Self and his team are motivated to surge into the spotlight for their first top-10 finish of the year.

“Going to Texas Motor Speedway is always huge for me,” said Self. “I’m incredibly disappointed that the ongoing pandemic is keeping a lot of our partners, family and friends from being at the track with us this weekend, but for me – I’m using that as an opportunity to go out there and showcase our team and partners on our hometown turf.”

Self will make his eighth Truck Series start at the 1.5-mile speedway and has delivered six top-20 finishes in the last seven races and hasn’t finished worse than 22nd.

Noted as one of the best intermediate race tracks for Self, he hopes the first of two trips to TMS this year yields his eighth career top-10 Truck Series finish.

“Texas has been a solid race track for us,” added Self. “For whatever reason, we’ve always been able to produce solid finishes – but we are hunting a top-10 run on Saturday night. That would be awesome for us.

“We have been making strides the last couple of races despite the bump at Pocono – but I honestly feel like we can go to Texas and Eddie (Troconis, crew chief) can keep adjusting on our No. 22 GO TEXAN | AM Technical Solutions Chevrolet throughout the early stage and two that puts us in a good position to capitalize on track position during the third and final stage.”

With temperatures expected to soar into the upper 90s this weekend at Texas, Self also knows staying hydrated will be instrumental in tackling the 167-lap race.

“We have plenty of CForce (premium artesian water) this weekend to keep me hydrated,” Self mentioned. “Usually when we come for the June race, it’s hot. It will be hotter than June this weekend though. Thankfully, I’ve taken the steps to prepare my body for the heat earlier this week.

“I don’t think it will be as bad this weekend since we don’t have practice or qualifying, but it will still be warm for the race – even as the sun sets – but I think the humidity will still be a factor.

“The heat should provide some good racing though. The track will be slick and that normally puts on a good show. Can’t wait to get down there and make it happen.”

Earlier this week, AM Racing announced a new partner for the remainder of the 2020 NGROTS season, starting this weekend.

Prasek’s is the latest Texas-based company to support AM Racing and their Austin, Texas native driver Austin Wayne Self through its existing relationship with GO TEXAN.

Famous for their craft jerky, sausage and smokehouse products, Prasek’s offers so much more. They are a bakery, specialty meat market, restaurant, convenience store, gift shop and ice cream parlor.

Prasek’s has a huge line of wines, specialty foods, outdoor fire pits and grills, hunting gear, deer stands, fishing gear, Yeti products, Costa sunglasses and gear and a full line of Frio products.

“I’m glad to be at my home track of Texas, especially with the support of our new partner Prasek’s,” said Self. “Everyone at AM Racing is thrilled to welcome another new partner from the state of Texas as we continue to expand our diverse partnership lineup that are Texas-based companies.

“I hope that we’re able to give Prasek’s and all of our partners a good showing.”

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

In 91 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 21st in the championship standings with 16 races remaining.

Austin Wayne Self saddles up for Texas Motor Speedway return

FORT WORTH, Tex. – With spring break in the rearview mirror, Austin Wayne Self (@AustinWSelf) and his AM Racing team head to Texas Motor Speedway looking for their second top-10 finish together in Friday night’s SpeedyCash.com 400.

Self will make his seventh NASCAR Gander Outdoors Truck Series (NGOTS) start at the 1.5-mile track but eyes his first top-10 at his hometown track.

In his previous six starts, Self has maneuvered a best finish of 12th in 2017 – but has also finished inside the top-20 five times.

Eager to get back to the race track, Self hopes the standalone Texas race brings the opportunity to earn his sixth career top-10 Gander Outdoors Truck Series finish.

“Super excited to get back to Texas Motor Speedway,” said Self. “We’ve been working hard on our Texas truck the last few weeks. Texas means so much to me being the track I grew up watching races and also have the support United Sorghum Checkoff Program along with GO TEXAN.

“Always a big week when we show up in the home state.”

For the ninth NASCAR Gander Outdoors Truck Series (NGOTS) race of the year and second time this season, AM Racing will carry the brand of the United Sorghum Checkoff Program, while also commemorating GO TEXAN and their 20th-year celebration.

Sorghum is the world’s fifth-most important grain crop and is grown on approximately 100 million acres worldwide, including approximately six million acres in the U.S. Currently, Texas and Kansas account for 80 percent of U.S. sorghum production.

The Sorghum Checkoff focuses on developing direct awareness of the benefits of using sorghum as a fuel and feedstock in the ethanol industry and urges consumers to choose E15 at the pumps. Ethanol serves as the foundation of demand for the sorghum industry, as ethanol producers typically use about one-third of the sorghum crop to produce clean-burning, high octane fuel.

The Sorghum Checkoff program was introduced to AM Racing through GO TEXAN who is celebrating its third year of partnership with the team and serving as the primary partner on AM Racing’s truck for a majority of the 2019 season.

“The Sorghum Checkoff program has been fantastic and I’m looking forward to having them back on the truck this weekend,” added Self. “They always embrace their experience at the race track and I’d like to reward them for their continued support with our best finish of the season.”

The 23-year-old Self also hopes his final visit to the Lone Star state this season will provide the chance to get his AM Racing track back on track after a two-race slide at Kansas and Charlotte respectively.

“Texas is the perfect place to get our year back on track,” Self added. “Texas is so fun to race. The new Turn 1 and 2 is almost like a road course corner, where you can overdrive it easy. It makes for some really good racing and makes you think about your passing opportunities. It’s going to be a good show on Friday night, and I can’t wait to get there.”

The United Sorghum Checkoff Program and Texas Department of Agriculture’s GO TEXAN program will support Self in his 70th 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.

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

In 69 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 18.3 during his three years of competition.

The Austin, Texas native is nestled 17th in the championship standings with 15 races remaining.

The team has named Austin Wayne Self as its driver for the 2019 season.

AM Racing brings partners front and center for upcoming Texas Truck Series race

MOORESVILLE, N.C. – Off to a solid start in the NASCAR Gander Outdoors Truck Series (NGOTS) this season, AM Racing has shifted much of their concentration during the recent off weeks to the fifth race of the season at Texas Motor Speedway on Fri., Mar. 29.

Alongside his full-time team with connected roots deep within the Texas landscape, Austin, Texas native Austin Wayne Self will see his No. 22 Chevrolet carry primary support from the United Sorghum Checkoff Program, while also commemorating GO TEXAN and their 20th year celebration.

The Sorghum Checkoff returns to the team after supporting Self during the last three NGOTS races at the 1.5-mile speedway elevating awareness of the benefits of American ethanol.

Sorghum is the world’s fifth-most important grain crop and is grown on approximately 100 million acres worldwide, including approximately six million acres in the U.S. Currently, Texas and Kansas account for 80 percent of U.S. sorghum production.

The Sorghum Checkoff focuses on developing direct awareness of the benefits of using sorghum as a fuel and feedstock in the ethanol industry. This serves as the foundation of demand for the sorghum industry, as ethanol producers typically use about one-third of the sorghum crop to produce clean-burning, high octane fuel.

The Sorghum Checkoff program was introduced to AM Racing through GO TEXAN who is celebrating its third year of partnership with the team and serving as the primary partner on Self’s truck for a majority of the 2019 season.

AM Racing partners Flying Circle and CForce are also proud GO TEXAN products.

GO TEXAN was established in 1999 to promote Texas agriculture products under one easily recognized trademark- an iconic brand in the shape of Texas.  Fast forward 20 years and TDA’s award-winning campaign continues to thrive as a powerful marketing catalyst; envied by competitors yet admired and respected on a worldwide stage.

This year, AM Racing has started a rocker panel program where GO TEXAN members can ride alongside the famous mark with their own branded logo being featured on the truck.

Joining Self, Texas entrepreneur and team owner Tim Self and the remainder of the AM Racing team is Ag Commissioner Sid Miller.

Since taking office, Miller and his staff have visited every continent on the globe to promote Texas products. His historic visit to China led the way to opening the Chinese market to Texas beef for the first time in decades. With his relentless efforts Miller is putting Texas producers on the world stage.

On Mar. 29, he will attend the NASCAR Gander Outdoors Truck Series race to support Self and the team alongside Sorghum Checkoff Renewables Director John Duff.

With Texas being one of the top producers of Sorghum, the Texas Department of Agriculture and the Sorghum Checkoff have a deep-rooted relationship.

“I always look forward to going back home and competing at Texas Motor Speedway,” said Self. “It’s one of my favorite tracks on the circuit, plus I have the opportunity to spend a lot of time with family, friends and our partners.

“My relationship with GO TEXAN and the Sorghum Checkoff is very important to me. Their mission is not only something I believe in – but makes me even prouder to be a Texan. We’ve had a lot of success together and continue to build our partnership with the Sorghum Checkoff, so I’m looking forward to a strong result.

“To have Ag Commissioner Sid Miller join us for the race is a huge plus for us,” added Self. “He is a very busy individual, but he is familiar with what we’re trying to do with AM Racing and wants to show his support. I’d like nothing more than bring home a strong finish for not only him, but all of our Texas partners.”

Friday’s Texas homecoming was AWS’s 20th event of the season and marked his return to the driver’s seat after forgoing last week’s race in Martinsville where Justin Fontaine made his NCWTS debut piloting AM Racing’s No.22 machine.

With only two races remaining in the 2016 NCWTS season AWS shifts his attention to the final stretch.  The series moves further west for Friday night’s race at Phoenix before concluding at Homestead Miami Speedway on November 18.

Texas Motor Speedway Post Race Quote:

“It wasn’t the homecoming finish we wanted but overall another good day for our AM Technical Solutions team.  I would have loved to be up front but we just couldn’t get the truck where it needed to be until late in the race.  We fought a loose truck early on but once we got things right the truck was solid during those long green flag runs.  I’m really thankful for everyone sticking in there today.  We’re leaving with a clean truck and headed to Phoenix.” -Austin Wayne Selftms00

AWS Texas Motor Speedway Quote:

“This is a big week for the entire team.  There’s nothing quite like racing in front of your hometown fans.  We’ve had such tremendous support all year long – and so much of that support comes from right here in my backyard.  I’m humbled – nothing would be more satisfying than turning in a great performance Friday night.  We had a solid run here (Texas) earlier in the year. I’m excited and ready to get back behind the wheel.”

No.22 AM Go Texan/Bucee’s Toyota Tundra

Hometown: Austin, Texas

Age: 20

RESULTS: NASCAR Camping World Truck Series Canadian Tire Motorsport Park – Chevrolet Silverado 250

 

 

AWS Canada Results:

Started: 22nd

Finished: 15th

Laps: 66 of 66

Driver Point Standings: 15th

Canadian Tire Motorsports Park Race Notes:

Austin Wayne Self, driver of the No.22 Go Texan/Bucee’s Toyota, started the action packed weekend off with an engine change following Final Practice on Saturday afternoon. Forced to start in the rear of the field for Sunday’s Silverado 250, the team took advantage of some extra practice during Qualifying.

AWS had one goal – keep the No. 22 Go Texan/Bucee’s Toyota out of trouble. Crew Chief Rick Ren made a good call on Lap 7 to keep the Rookie driver out, allowing him to gain valuable track position. Throughout the remainder of the race, Austin battled a strong field of trucks, but was able to remain in the Top 15 for most of the day, reaching as high as 2nd place at one point.

Just as the laps were winding down, and AWS was holding on to a solid Top 10 finish, a blown right rear tire caused the team to have to pit late in the running. Restarting 29th. Self fought to gain seventeen positions in two laps, moving him into 12th, before an on-track incident led to another blown tire, coming out of Turn 10 on the Final Lap. Despite the set back, Austin was able to maintain control of the No. 22 Toyota, with only three good tires and come home with another Top 15 finish.

Canadian Tire Motorsport Park Post Race Quote:

“I am really proud of my entire No. 22 AM Racing team. We continue to fight every week to get my Toyota Tundra handling the way it should be on track. We’ve had some decent finishes the past couple weeks, but we’re fighting against some bad luck. I think I would have been able to get the best finish of the year, if it wasn’t for the blown tire. We’ll continue to learn, and move on to Chicagoland in a couple weeks.” -Austin Wayne Self
