Austin Wayne Self, AM Racing hope to shine at Homestead-Miami Speedway

HOMESTEAD, Fla.: Collecting another solid finish this past weekend at ISM (Ariz.) Raceway, veteran NASCAR Gander Outdoors Truck Series driver Austin Wayne Self and his AM Racing team trek to Homestead-Miami (Fla.) Speedway for Friday night’s season-finale hoping to end the season like they started with a top-10 finish in the Ford EcoBoost 200.

Under the leadership of veteran crew chief Eddie Troconis, the AM Racing team has stepped up to the plate this season to be contenders throughout the schedule at a variety of different race tracks.

While their goal remains clear to end the season with their fourth top-10 finish, the Mooresville, N.C.-based team will also use the final 134 laps of the year to get ahead for the upcoming 2020 NGOTS season.

“We are focused on going to Homestead and making the best of it,” said Self who sits 14th in the championship standings. “We have worked hard as a team to put the most competitive trucks on the race track possible. Start to finish, we’ve made significant gains, but we still have more work to do.

“We’re not fighting for a championship and I’ll certainly be respectful of the competition, but I plan to go out and race hard for my team and our partners.

“Homestead is a fun race track because of its multiple grooves. No matter what happens though, I think we would all agree that the 2019 season has been a successful one and we can march ahead with a brighter outlook towards 2020.”

Self, 23, will make his fourth start at Homestead-Miami Speedway on Friday night, and while the track provides multiple lanes to race, the Austin, Tex. native says keeping up with the handling of their No. 22 GO TEXAN | AM Technical Solutions Chevrolet Silverado is vital to keeping themselves on the lead lap and in contention.

“You never know how the race is going to go,” added Self. “You can either have a lot of long green flag runs or a lot of short turns. Just depends on a lot of circumstances. We’ll work hard during practice to make sure the truck is best suited for both options.

“I believe the fastest way around Homestead on Friday night will be rim-riding the wall, but you have to be so cautious in a truck because you can easily be sucked into the wall and ruin your night. We’ll have some chances in the first two stages to get our truck balanced right for the last stage. No matter what though, it should be a fun night of racing in November.”

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

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 will continue its primary role with AM Racing this weekend at Homestead-Miami (Fla.) International Speedway.

Austin Wayne Self, AM Racing taking strong presence to ISM Raceway

AVONDALE, Ariz.: With just two NASCAR Gander Outdoors Truck Series (NGOTS) races left this season, veteran Austin Wayne Self (@AustinWSelf) and his AM Racing team take their recent string of strong on-track performances out west to ISM (Ariz.) Raceway for Friday night’s Lucas Oil 150.

In the series’ most recent race at Martinsville (Va.) Speedway, Self contended for another top-10 finish and appeared poised to deliver his career-best outing at the famed .526-mile short track aboard his No. 22 GO TEXAN | AM Technical Solutions Chevrolet Silverado, but contact from another competitor on the last lap thwarted Self’s superb effort.

While the 19th-place finish wasn’t an indicator of the team’s performance in the final short track race of the season, the Austin, Texas native invades ISM Raceway upbeat about the constant on-track presence of his Mooresville, N.C.-based team led by crew chief Eddie Troconis.

“I can’t believe the 2019 season is almost over with,” said Self. “There aren’t words to describe how proud I am of the guys on this AM Racing team. Martinsville Speedway surely isn’t one of my strongest tracks, but Eddie (Troconis, crew chief) gave me a great No. 22 GO TEXAN | AM Technical Solutions Chevrolet Silverado and we were able to fight hard for a top-10 finish – before we had it taken away from us coming out of Turn 4 on the last lap.

“I guess that’s racing – but on the other hand, look how far we’ve come this season as a team. We’re making significant gains from top to bottom and without question I feel like we can continue our presence in the top-10 this weekend in Phoenix and hopefully next weekend at Homestead-Miami Speedway too.”

For Phoenix, the 23-year-old driver will make his fourth start at the 1.0-mile track. Last fall, he delivered his personal track best effort of 19th after starting 22nd. Fast forward 12 months later, Self says anything outside the top-10 will be a disappointment.

“Phoenix can be a challenging track, but I enjoy racing at it,” he said. “It’s relatively flat, so you have to work hard on the balance to get the truck to roll through the center so you can carry the speed on exit and onto the straightaways.

“With the new layout, it also presents the opportunity for chaos. I think you’ll see a lot of side-by-side racing while the chance to make passes three and maybe even four-wide. There’s a lot on the table when it comes to the next to last race of the season. Everyone’s on different agendas.

“I also have some extra encouragement to perform well at this race as the Phoenix Metro is home to AM Technical Solutions’ architectural and engineering group as well as the base of operation for many of their core services people who will be attending the race with us.  It’s important to me to represent them well at this race.

“For AM Racing and I, we want to continue to show that we are getting more consistent and have no plans to slow down. I think what we have learned in 2019 will make us a Playoff worthy team in 2020. Phoenix could be good practice for that. We’ll see.”

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

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 will continue its primary role with AM Racing this weekend at Martinsville Speedway.

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, CForce Bottling Company, Flying Circle and Kreuz Market will serve as associate partners in the 22nd race of the year.

In 82 NGOTS 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 three years of competition.

The Austin, Texas native is nestled 14th in the championship standings with two races remaining.
