In Truck return, AM Racing to boost Texas-based campaign and recovery at Martinsville Speedway

MARTINSVILLE, Va. – In their NASCAR Camping World Truck Series (NCWTS) return, AM Racing has a mission to bring awareness to the state of Texas and their ongoing campaigns in Saturday afternoon’s Alpha Energy Solutions 250 at Martinsville (Va.) Speedway.

With the heart and passion of AM Racing built around their founding origin of the Lone Star State, the team will take a no foolin’ approach to push insight about not only their ongoing Texas-based campaign, but recovery too.

On the hood of the team’s No. 22 Toyota Tundra will sport the GO TEXAN logo.

GO TEXAN 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 throughout the world.

Whether it’s grown, sewn or served on a plate, more than 26 million Texans shop, travel and dine out in full support of Texas business and agriculture.

“I am a proud Texan and I’m proud to show it this weekend at Martinsville Speedway,” said Austin Wayne Self, a native of Austin, Tex. “The GO TEXAN program represents an opportunity for companies and corporations of all kinds to fall under one banner. Every time I take a trip home, I always try to shop or eat at places that boast about being Texan proud.”

“The GO TEXAN campaign is something unique and deserves to have as much attention as possible.”

On the quarter panels of their truck, AM Racing has donated the space to bring awareness to the STAR Fund.

The State of Texas Agriculture Relief Fund was created solely with monetary donations from private individuals and companies, including Farm Credit, Valero and McCoy’s Building Supply. STAR Fund money may be used to assist farmers and ranchers in rebuilding fences, restoring operations and paying for other agricultural disaster relief.

“As a Texan, we often depend on our farmers and ranchers,” said AM Racing team principal Tim Self. “Martinsville is an opportunity for AM Racing to show our support and bring further attentiveness to those agriculture producers in the Panhandle of Texas who have been recently affected by wildfires.”

“Every dollar counts as the fires have devastated many farming and ranching operations and caused massive loss of livestock and feed sources and as proud Texans we’re going to do our part to inform people of the STAR Fund and its purpose.”

Texas Agriculture Commissioner Sid Miller expressed his gratitude to AM Racing for their efforts this weekend.

“We are so grateful to AM Racing and Austin Wayne Self for their promotion of the STAR Fund,” Commissioner Sid Miller said. “They’ve been the greatest partners to our marketing program and this is just another example of how dedicated AM Racing is to promoting Texas to a broader audience.”

As for Martinsville this weekend, Self looks to better his 15th place performance at the famous 0.526-mile paperclip from last April, especially on the heels of the 21-year-old’s career-best second place showing at Daytona International Speedway in February.

“I’m looking forward to going back to Martinsville this weekend,” added Austin Wayne Self. “Daytona was a great blessing for me and our AM Racing team and even though we didn’t go to Atlanta, our AM Racing team has worked tirelessly to make sure we can be as competitive as possible for 200 laps on Saturday afternoon.”

The Alpha Energy Solutions 250 (250 laps / 131.5 miles) is the third of 23 NASCAR Camping World Truck Series races on the 2017 schedule. Practice begins on Fri., Mar. 31 from 1:00 p.m. – 1:55 p.m. A final practice session is set for 3:00 p.m. – 3:55 p.m. Qualifying is set for race day, Sat., Apr. 1 beginning at 3:00 p.m. The 32-truck field will take the green flag shortly after 3:00 p.m. with live coverage on FOX, the Motor Racing Network (Radio) and SiriusXM NASCAR Radio (Satellite Radio, Channel 90).

Statement From AM Racing Regarding Atlanta Motor Speedway

HAMPTON, Ga. – The following is a statement from AM Racing team principal Tim Self on the team’s decision not to participate in Saturday afternoon’s Active Pest Control 200 NASCAR Camping World Truck Series (NCWTS) race at Atlanta (Ga.) Motor Speedway:

“AM Racing is dedicated to building a longstanding platform that will allow to be around for years to come. With that vision comes sacrifices. Collectively, we have decided to forgo our entry in Saturday afternoon’s race and focus on upcoming races.

“In addition to expanding and updating our current fleet, we’re building new trucks, while also strengthening our relationships with our new and existing marketing partners to set a core foundation for AM Racing’s future. We’ll be back at Martinsville next month and look forward to not only the rest of the season, but picking up where we left off at Daytona.”

In the opening NCWTS race of the season at Daytona (Fla.) International Speedway on Feb. 24, the Mooresville, N.C. team scored second and ninth place finishes respectively with drivers Austin Wayne Self and J.J. Yeley. The results were personal bests for each driver at Daytona, while Self earned a career-best finish in 23 career Truck Series races.

“I’m very proud of what our team accomplished at Daytona,” added Self. “It was a huge undertaking to extend our program from one truck to two, but we did it well. It would not have possible without the support of AM Racing partners and Joe Gibbs Engines. Our Daytona efforts is a prime example of our reason to adjust our schedule for the year with the mindset of improving the overall AM Racing spectrum.”

Austin Wayne Self earns career-best second Truck Series finish at Daytona

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. – AM Racing driver Austin Wayne Self had to play the strategy game during Friday night’s NextEra Energy Resources 250 at Daytona (Fla.) International Speedway.

The strategy paid off to near perfection as Self was able to negotiate past a wild last lap backstretch melee to earn a second-place finish to kick off his 2017 NASCAR Camping World Truck Series (NCWTS) season.

In practice Thursday, Self, 20, focused solely on single-truck runs given AM Racing’s newly introduced 32 team did not have owner points to fall back on as did their 22 Team

That focus paid off with Self qualifying 22nd on Friday afternoon.

Just two laps into the race, a 17-truck accident occurred entering Turn 1 causing some front-end damage to Self’s No. 32 Don’t Mess with Texas Toyota Tundra.

Quick work instructed by crew chief Bill Henderson sent the Texan back into the race on the lead lap.

For the remaining two stages, Self kept his truck out of trouble and on the lead lap knowing if he didn’t suffer any further damage he would be a contender during the third 60-lap stage shootout.

Throughout the final stage, Self kept his sights on the leaders, while hovering between 10th and 13th.

When a caution waived less than five laps from the finish, it set the tone for a chaotic finish.

Restarting 12th on a green, white, checker, Self charged up the middle with a run to seventh before moving to the bottom going into turn 1 for a final push to the checkered flag.

When trucks began spinning and flying through the air on the backstretch, the Austin, Texas native stayed on the gas, drove his truck to the bottom and cleared the carnage to emerge to a second-place finish when the field was frozen under caution.

Along with Self’s career-best run, AM Racing Teammate J.J. Yeley scored his personal Truck Series best at the 2.5-mile superspeedway with a ninth place run in the No. 22 Legrand / Superior Essex Toyota.

The effort was Self’s first top-five finish and second career top-10 in 23 races. Self also bested his Daytona performance from last February at the “World Center of Racing” where he finished 19th.

“What an unbelievable night for our AM Racing team,” said Self. “For putting this team together three weeks ago, a second-place finish in Daytona says a lot about our Program. I can’t thank Bill (Henderson, Crew Chief) enough, our guys on the AM Racing Team and of course our AM Racing partners, especially AM Technical Solutions and B&D Industries Inc. Thanks to Toyota and the Born in Texas Toyota Tundra. Big gratitude to Mark Cronquist and the Joe Gibbs Engine Shop.

“We’ll look for some more of these types of runs this season.”

Team principal Tim Self said he was extremely appreciative and humbled by the performance of his two teams Friday night.

“Great Team effort!,” said Tim Self.” Kevin Cywinski (Director of Competition) and the entire shop came together and worked their butts off the last two weeks getting two ARCA teams and two Truck teams to Daytona on back to back weekends. I’m just grateful to be part of this team.”

“I was proud to see both work very well together during the race and on that last lap, both drivers did their best with all the chaos and we came away with a top-five and top-10 finish. Other than a win, it doesn’t get much better than that. It may have not been the win, but it sure feels like one.”

For the season-opener, Self drew additional support for the race from Don’t Mess with Texas, Go Texan and their partners Hardcore Carnivore and Big Red. Techline, Snaptrack and JB Henderson Construction as associate

Next up for the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series is a double-header with the XFINITY Series at Atlanta Motor Speedway for the running of the Active Pest Control 200 on Sat., Mar. 4.

JJ Yeley Readies NASCAR Camping World Truck Series Return at Daytona

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. – Set to run a one-race deal with AM Racing in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series season-opener at Daytona (Fla.) International Speedway, JJ Yeley is amped about the opportunity to compete in Friday night’s NextEra Energy Resources 250 for the first time since 2010.

Thanks to support from Legrand and Superior Essex, the Phoenix, Ariz. native will drive AM Racing’s flagship entry, the No 22 Toyota Camry for his 23rd career start and second at the “World Center of Racing.”

“I’m really thankful for this chance to run at Daytona again,” said Yeley who will also compete in Saturday’s NASCAR XFINITY Series race for TriStar Motorsports. “Running in both the XFINITY and Truck Series this weekend is a good opportunity for me to get into a rhythm. The truck should be plenty fast, so I’m anxious to see what we can do in 100 laps.”

Knowing a good finish could ultimately lead for more races for Yeley in the Truck Series, the two-time USAC Sprint Car champion is focused, but also knows the unpredictableness that comes along with superspeedway racing.

“The races at Daytona and Talladega are great equalizers, which sometimes produce some great stories and we’re hoping to be one of those great stories Friday night,” Yeley said. “I enjoy this type of racing and AM Racing had some solid results on the superspeedways last year, so I’m hoping with my experience we can up the notch a little bit and see if we can’t come out of the box swinging.”

Unlike last year, AM Racing won’t be a solo team at Daytona. The team announced on Tuesday that Austin Wayne Self, the 2015 ARCA Racing Series Rookie of the Year will compete in a second truck as a teammate to Yeley in the No. 32 AM Racing Toyota Tundra.

When it comes to superspeedway racing, the assurance of a teammate could be the difference of finishing at the front or bringing up the rear.

“Austin has plenty of experience on a superspeedway between ARCA and Trucks, so I’m very comfortable working with him during practice, qualifying and the race,” added Yeley. “We both have jobs to do, but we’re focused on doing a good job together in the interest of the race team. With the addition of Joe Gibbs Racing engines, we just might have that extra boost to be the race’s biggest sleepers. We’ll see.”

Driving for a still relatively new team in Truck Series competition, Yeley will have experience on top of the box with crew chief Rick Ren calling the shots. Despite 28 career wins as a crew chief in Trucks, the veteran has never won at Daytona. That’s a statistic Yeley hopes to change Friday night.

From a team side, AM Racing team principal Tim Self says he has confidence in both of his drivers’ abilities at Daytona.

“Daytona is unpredictable, but we have two very capable drivers,” said Self. “As a team, we feel very confident in the trucks we’re bringing to the track. We’ll just see how our cards are stacked in qualifying and then just exercise some patience in the race to make sure we’re hopefully around in the end when it matters most.”

Overall, Yeley, 40, has a combined 23 starts at the 2.5-mile superspeedway across NASCAR’s top-three national divisions with two XFINITY Series poles, one top-five and four top-10s. Yeley’s best finish at Daytona is fourth in the 2006 XFINITY Series opener after starting on the pole driving for Joe Gibbs Racing.

JJ Yeley Readies NASCAR Camping World Truck Series Return at Daytona

Austin Wayne Self to Drive Second AM Racing Truck at Daytona

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. – Surrounded by plenty of support, officials from AM Racing confirmed today that 20-year-old Austin Wayne Self will drive the team’s newest entry, the No. 32 Toyota Tundra in Friday night’s NextEra Energy Resources 250 at Daytona (Fla.) International Speedway.

“I can’t wait to get back to Daytona this week,” said Self. “The guys at the shop in North Carolina have really been working hard to put two competitive trucks together and I’m looking forward to seeing what we can do on the track later this week.”

Aiding Self’s efforts this week is longtime partner AM Technical Solutions.

Austin-based AM Technical Solutions (AMTS) is a leading construction management, project management and facility solutions firm for high-tech markets. AMTS provides diverse integrated solutions across a facilities life cycle to include new cleanroom construction, integrated construction management, total quality programs, capital asset solutions and cleanroom certification and testing.

In addition to AMTS, Self’s No. 32 Toyota Tundra will have major partnership support from B&D Industries Inc.,

Based in Albuquerque, N.M., B&D Industries Inc. was founded in 1955 offers specialized expertise in electrical, plumbing, technologies and HVAC systems, including construction, operation, maintenance and repair services.

“The ongoing support from AM Technical Solutions means a lot, but I’m equally proud to represent our newest partner B&D Industries. Daytona is such an important race, not only because it’s the first race in the season, but because it’s one of our biggest races of the year. We had a decent showing last year, so I’m hoping we can go out there on Friday night, put ourselves in a good spot and have a good finish. Everyone deserves it.”

Self has drawn additional support for the race from Don’t Mess with Texas, Go Texan and their partners Hardcore Carnivore and Big Red. Techline, Snaptrack and JB Henderson Construction comprise the remainder of the lineup.

Looking for his second career top-10 finish on Friday night, Self knows finding himself in the right spot at the right time is crucial to superspeedway success, but the former ARCA Racing Series Rookie of the Year is also hoping to work close with new teammate JJ Yeley who will drive the team’s flagship No. 22 Toyota Tundra Friday night.

“JJ is pretty good at superspeedway racing and I know he can teach me a thing or two,” Self explained. “I plan to talk to him a lot during practice on Thursday and see if we can’t deploy a strategy that will be effective for the both of us. When it comes down to the race, we just have to see how it goes. If we can find ourselves together, we know what the goal is. Hopefully, we can make it a reality.”

AM Racing team principal Tim Self says he’s proud to see his young team thrive and enter two trucks for Friday night’s highly-anticipated race.

“Last year at Daytona was a huge accomplishment for AM Racing by successfully qualifying for the race,” explained Self. “This year, with a lot of hard work and dedication, we’re proud to bringing two trucks down to Daytona with two capable drivers. Both of our drivers do an excellent job representing our partners and we’ll leave it in their hands to do what they know is best for Friday night.”

Bill Henderson will crew chief Self’s efforts this weekend at Daytona. The 2017 NCWTS season-opener also marks the debut of Joe Gibbs Racing engines for AM Racing who made the engine switch during the offseason.

Prior to joining the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series in 2016, Self, competed for two season in the ARCA Racing Series where he earned one win (Winchester 2015), finished second in the championship standings and won the S&S Volvo Most Laps Completed award.

The NextEra Energy Resources 250 (100 laps / 250 miles) is the first of 23 NASCAR Camping World Truck Series on the 2017 schedule. Practice begins on Thurs, Feb. 23 from 2:00 p.m. – 2:55 p.m. A final practice session is set for 4:00 p.m. – 4:55 p.m. Qualifying is set for race day, Fri., Feb. 24 beginning at 4:30 p.m. The 32-truck field will take the green flag shortly after 7:30 p.m. with live coverage on FOX Sports 1, the Motor Racing Network (Radio) and SiriusXM NASCAR Radio (Satellite Radio, Channel 90).

Justin Fontaine Upbeat About ARCA Debut At Daytona

MOORESVILLE, N.C. – ARCA Racing Series presented by Menards rookie Justin Fontaine (@driverFontaine) will tell you that it was extremely hard to wipe the smile off his face following preseason testing last month with his Win-Tron Racing team at Daytona (Fla.) International Speedway.

Five weeks later, Fontaine is smiling again, upbeat about returning to the “World Center of Racing” for his ARCA debut in Saturday afternoon’s Lucas Oil Complete Engine Treatment 200 driven by General Tire.

For his superspeedway debut, Fontaine will drive the No. 33 ProMATIC Automation Toyota Camry for Win-Tron Racing, part of a two-car operation for the Mooresville, N.C.-based team with teammate Gus Dean.

“There aren’t words to describe how excited I am about going to Daytona this week,” said Fontaine. “I’ve been ready for race week since after the test. We had a good test session and the car had a lot of speed. I know I still have plenty to learn, but I know that I have a really good team around me and that’s important, especially at a place like Daytona.”

Speaking of the test, Fontaine, a veteran of Late Models turned in the 13th quickest lap overall in a two-day session that saw 63 drivers turn at least one lap around the 2.5-mile superspeedway.

“We spent time in single car runs with the team easing me into the draft,” recalled Fontaine. “We know that the draft is going to be super crucial this week with qualifying and the race, so I’ll be working close with Gus (Dean) and the other competitors and hope we can post a good lap in practice that put us with a good group for qualifying.

“When it comes down to the race, we’ll take it from there. I’ve watched a lot of You Tube over the last two weeks going back and watching the old ARCA races from Daytona. I’ve seen mistakes and what works and what doesn’t, I don’t plan to forget what I watched.”

For his ARCA debut, the Fletcher, N.C. native will be surrounded by veterans. Whether it’s in the garage with crew chief Bill Henderson, guidance from above from spotter Richard Coleman or in the hauler with team principals Kevin Cywinski and Tim Self, Fontaine knows he’s in good hands.

And if all that input isn’t enough, Fontaine’s cousin, Chris Fontaine, a NASCAR Camping World Truck Series driver and often considered a superspeedway ace has also offered support.

“I’m thankful to have all the support around me that I do,” Fontaine said. “With all their advice, I hope it means good things during the race for our No. 33 ProMATIC Automation Toyota Camry.”

Fontaine joins Win-Tron Racing, the driver development partner of AM Racing for several races on the ARCA Racing Series tour in 2017 starting with the Feb. 19 Lucas Oil Complete Engine Treatment 200 driven by General Tire.

Tim Self, team principal at AM Racing attended the ARCA test to watch Fontaine make his first laps at Daytona and is confident of good things in the series’ season-opener.

“Like I said at the test, I’m proud of Justin,” said Self. “He learned a lot at Daytona during the test and without a doubt that confidence will help this weekend. Kevin (Cywinski) and I have worked together to make sure we put the personnel around Justin that he’ll be comfortable with and that he can trust.

JJ Yeley joins AM Racing for Daytona Truck Series opener

MOORESVILLE, N.C. – Officials from AM Racing (@AMRacingNASCAR) announced today that NASCAR veteran driver JJ Yeley will pilot the team’s No. 22 Toyota Tundra for the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series (NCWTS) season-opening NextEra Energy Resources 250 at Daytona (Fla.) International Speedway on Friday night, February 24th.

Yeley, a native of Phoenix, Ariz. will make his 23rd career NCWTS start and first since last March’s race at Atlanta (Ga.) Motor Speedway. In Yeley’s previous 22 starts, the two-time USAC Sprint Car champion has one start at the “World Center of Racing” in 2010 resulting in 10th place finish.

The partnership for now is a one-race agreement with industry veteran Rick Ren serving as crew chief.

Yeley’s efforts will be backed by Legrand and Superior Essex.

“I am looking forward to being behind the wheel of the No. 22 Superior Essex Toyota for the season opener at Daytona International Speedway in the Camping World Truck Series,” said Yeley. “It’s a great opportunity that Tim Self, AM Racing, Legrand and Superior Essex put together, and I’m glad to be a part of it. I can’t wait to get out on the track and drive the Toyota Tundra to the front.”

Legrand is a leader in network infrastructure solutions, with products designed to support data centers,  commercial buildings or audio / video applications, connectivity products that meet industry standards and rack cabinets that can be manufactured globally.

Superior Essex is a leading manufacturer and supplier of communications cable and accessory products serving the communications industry and related distribution markets for over 80 years. Headquartered in Atlanta, Gal, Superior Essex specializes in magnet wire manufacturing and distribution.

“This is a great opportunity for AM Racing,” said AM Racing team principal Tim Self. “The team has built JJ a very strong truck for competition with the hope that we can contend for the win at Daytona in a few weeks. JJ has a niche for the draft and we feel that he can not only put our team and partners in the spotlight, but also give us a good assessment of our truck program overall.”

Overall, Yeley, 40, has a combined 23 starts at the 2.5-mile superspeedway across NASCAR’s top-three national divisions with two XFINITY Series poles, one top-five and four top-10s. Yeley’s best finish at Daytona is fourth in the 2006 XFINITY Series opener after starting on the pole driving for Joe Gibbs Racing.

Last week, the Mooresville, North Carolina-based team announced they have switched engine manufacturers for the 2017 season. Joe Gibbs Racing engines will power the team’s Toyota Tundras this season starting with the 100-lap race at Daytona.

Details of AM Racing’s second driver and marketing partnership(s) lineup for Daytona is forthcoming.

My father was a foreign student, born and raised in a small village in Kenya. Universities and states, including Illinois, are taking part in a divestment campaign to pressure the Sudanese government to stop the killings. And right here in the UCC, we’re hearing from God about what it means to be a welcoming church that holds on to our Christian witness. Because in the faces of those young veterans who come back from Iraq and Afghanistan, I see my grandfather, who signed up after Pearl Harbor, marched in Patton’s Army, and was rewarded by a grateful nation with the chance to go to college on the GI Bill. I realize that I am not the likeliest candidate for this office. The enduring faith of over a billion people is so much bigger than the narrow hatred of a few.
