Austin Wayne Self; AM Racing hope teamwork effort rewards jackpot performance at Las Vegas

LAS VEGAS, Nev. – Teamwork, dedication and determination collided over the weekend for AM Racing to prepare the NASCAR Gander Outdoors Truck Series (NGOTS) team for Friday night’s Strat 200 at Las Vegas (Nev.) Motor Speedway.

While contending for a solid top-15 finish this past Saturday afternoon at Atlanta (Ga.) Motor Speedway, the Mooresville, N.C.-based team found themselves a victim in a late race incident. The damage to the team’s No. 22 GO TEXAN | JB Henderson Construction Company Chevrolet Silverado sent the Eddie Troconis-led team pedaling hard back to the team’s shop in North Carolina to prepare another race truck to utilize for competition in the third Truck Series race of the season.

After nearly 36 hours of teamwork, focus, and diligence, the team was able to build a new Chevrolet Silverado for Self to compete with in his fifth race at the 1.5-mile speedway.

“I can’t begin to tell you how proud I am of the guys on this AM Racing team,” said Self. “We struggled during the Atlanta race with our handling, but Eddie worked hard, and we got a lot better.

“Unfortunately, we were moving to the front when we got swept up in a crash on a late race restart.

“The truck was damaged pretty good, so the guys rushed back to the shop after the race and spent all day Sunday and Monday morning putting another truck together for this weekend. That meant a lot to me. Nobody complained. We all got in there and helped one another and hopefully our hard work will be rewarded in the race on Friday night.”

Self, 22, returns to Las Vegas after earning a ninth-place finish last September. Overall, the Austin, Texas native hasn’t finished worse than 21st in his four prior starts. He carries an average finish of 16.5 since 2016.

“I like racing at Las Vegas,” added Self. “Last March, the Truck Series race was crazy as the draft really came into effect and it provided a very entertaining race for the fans but a mentally exhausting race for the drivers. At times, it felt a lot like we were racing at Daytona or Talladega.

“I think you will see the same type of racing this weekend. It’s a very fast track and the temperatures will be cool so that will provide good racing. We need to bounce back after our Atlanta finish and get ourselves in a good spot to earn some more stage points and make a dent in the standings before taking our first break of the year.

“Speed matters a lot at Vegas, but you need to handle too, especially over the bumps. Eddie is really smart when it comes to setup and I think our No. 22 GO TEXAN | JB Henderson Construction Company Chevrolet Silverado will be competitive from practice to the race. No matter what happens on Friday though, I’m proud of my guys and their commitment to get us to the race track.”

Kevin Cywinski, team manager for AM Racing says the morale around the shop hasn’t changed despite the long hours over the last few days.

“If you are looking for the true definition of teamwork, AM Racing was the place to be the last couple of days,” he said. “Eddie’s leadership and our guys’ commitment to get a truck built for Las Vegas shows their passion for not only racing – but their faith in Austin as a race car driver.

“Our goal is a top-10 finish on Friday night and if we can accomplish that, it will feel like a victory.”

The Texas Department of Agriculture’s GO TEXAN program and JB Henderson Construction will support Self in his 66th career start.

Austin Wayne Self; AM Racing carry Daytona momentum to Atlanta

HAMPTON, Ga. – Two years ago, veteran NASCAR Gander Outdoors Truck Series (NGOTS) driver Austin Wayne Self (@AustinWSelf) found himself in a similar position leaving Daytona with a good finish to start the season.

But, one circumstance is majorly different heading to Atlanta (Ga.) Motor Speedway, site of Saturday afternoon’s Atlanta 200, Self will be a competitor in the event. In 2017, Self finished a career-best second at the 2.5-mile superspeedway, but did not attempt Atlanta, wiping out the team’s hopes of a competing for a championship.

However, the mindset is completely different 24 months later where the AM Racing team led by crew chief Eddie Troconis treks to Atlanta on the heels of a solid ninth-place finish to open the season.

With some momentum on their side, the team is eager to impress in the opening races of 2019.

“It felt so good for our team to have such a strong run at Daytona,” said Self. “I feel like we impressed a lot of people. I don’t think many expected us to make it to the final round of qualifying. We kept the speed and performance up through the first two stages of the race and then survived the chaos at the end to get us a top-10 finish.

Saturday afternoon’s double-header will be the second race where Self and Troconis have worked together but the Austin, Texas native says that the chemistry with his new crew chief hasn’t even hit its peak.

“Eddie’s energy, focus, and leadership really contributed to our success at Daytona last weekend,” added Self. “He was eager to listen to what I was saying about our No. 22 GO TEXAN | AM Technical Solutions Chevrolet Silverado and made the adjustments I needed to improve our speed on the track.

“I know that there’s a vast difference between Daytona and Atlanta, but that trust between each other is quickly building and I think it will only continue to get stronger the longer the season goes. I honestly feel like we can win a race or two this year, that’s how pumped I am right now.”

Self, 22, will make his third start at Atlanta’s 1.54-mile track and looks to better his top-15 performance last year. In his track debut in 2016, he finished 16th.

“My record isn’t that bad at Atlanta,” noted Self. “It’s a track where patience is your best friend. Tires go away in a hurry and you have to manage that. The stage breaks help, but you have the chance to get yourself a lap down during the third stage if you don’t manage yourself.

“We have high hopes that we can backup what we did in qualifying at Daytona and put ourselves in a good position for the race. If we can’t put ourselves in a good spot to win, collecting as many points as possible is our top priority.”

Troconis says he’s proud of the commitment by Self and sees Daytona as only the preview of what’s to come for AM Racing.

“I’m proud of our team,” he said. “We came out of the box with a new group of guys but a very dedicated bunch. I’m looking forward to the year. Austin gave us everything he could behind the wheel, and we survived the race as best as we could.

“Austin has proven to be a steady and firm driver on the intermediate tracks in the past and I hope with the improvements we’ve made to the truck, it will allow him to pick up a bunch of spots and earn another top-10 finish to carry us into Las Vegas.”
