Austin Wayne Self, AM Racing ready to double down in Las Vegas

LAS VEGAS, Nev: With just five NASCAR Gander Outdoors Truck Series (NGOTS) races remaining in the 2019 season, every race is important for AM Racing and driver Austin Wayne Self.

As the series returns following a quick two-week break, Self and his Eddie Troconis led team head to Las Vegas (Nev.) Motor Speedway looking to roll the dice and deliver another top-five finish in Friday night’s World of Westgate 200.

Since delivering a sixth-place finish at Kentucky Speedway in July, AM Racing hasn’t finished outside the top-15. With one top-five, two top 10s and six top-15 finishes in-between, the Mooresville, N.C.-based team certainly has hit its stride during the summer stretch and shows no signs of slowing down.

“I always enjoy going to Las Vegas,” said Self. “It’s a track that embraces NASCAR racing and the fans are incredible. The race track is also a lot of fun. It’s a fast race track where drafting is critical, and handling is crucial.

“AM Racing has enjoyed a lot of success on the bigger tracks this summer and I’m eager to see if we can keep that momentum going on Friday night. “It’s going to be hot, but we expect that during fall in Las Vegas. If we can keep up with the track conditions going from day to night, we should have an opportunity to earn our fourth top-10 of the year.”

Self will make his sixth career start at the 1.5-mile speedway. After finishing ninth in the fall race last year, the Austin, Texas native returned to Sin City in March and delivered a strong top-15 finish.

With so much learned in the past year, Self isn’t counting out an opportunity to put his AM Racing team in Victory Lane if the circumstances work out.

“Winning is not out of our hands at AM Racing,” explained Self. “We have showcased that we have the speed in our trucks – we just need the race to play into our hands as far as strategy goes and we should have the chance to capitalize on it.

“We’ve seen where fuel mileage can be a late race factor and hopefully we’re in a position to take advantage of that. With Las Vegas being a cutoff race for the Playoffs, I think you’re going to see a chaotic race but for those of us not in the Playoffs, it’s a good chance for us to showcase our stuff.

“Should be a fun race for the fans.”

AM Racing team manager Kevin Cywinski says he is exceptionally proud of the results the team has shown lately.

“Austin, Eddie and the team have been doing a fantastic job,” offered Cywinski. “We have recovered from a couple of mishaps late in the spring and early in the summer and really have been focused on going out there and not leaving anything on the table.

“I think everyone has executed well and that has given the whole team a good morale not only at the track but at the race shop. Everyone is really upbeat about this last stretch of races and the opportunity to not only run well but perhaps win a race by the end of the season at Homestead.”

For the series’ return trip to the West Coast, alongside GO TEXAN, AM Technical Solutions will serve 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 Las Vegas (Nev.) Motor Speedway

Austin Wayne Self, AM Racing upbeat heading North of the Border

BOWMANVILLE, Ontario Canada: With an uptick in their summer performance in the NASCAR Gander Outdoors Truck Series (NGOTS), AM Racing driver Austin Wayne Self and his team head North of the Border for Sunday afternoon’s Chevrolet Silverado 250 looking to keep their recent momentum alive in the series’ lone road course race at the famed Canadian Tire Motorsport Park.

It being one of Self’s favorite events of the year, the Austin, Texas native is ready to turn left and right this weekend with an eye on his fourth top-10 finish of the year.

With the addition of crew chief Eddie Troconis to call the shots for Self, the two have steadily and methodically become contenders in the ultra-competitive NASCAR Gander Outdoors Truck Series. And although in the early stages of the post-season Playoffs, the Mooresville, N.C.-based team is ready to make their own noise with just six races remaining in 2019.

“I’ve been ready to go to Canada for a while,” offered Self. “It’s one of my favorite races of the year. I don’t really consider myself a road course driver, but I’ve quickly become accustomed to that form of racing and seem to have a knack for it.

“Eddie and the AM Racing guys have worked hard on this road course truck over the last month or so and I’m eager to get back to Canada and see what we can put together.”

Knowing that Sunday’s race is usually packed full of excitement and even drama, Self isn’t hiding away from the fact that strategy could play hugely into the race and set the potential for the ultimate David vs. Goliath scenario that could propel Self to his first career NASCAR Gander Outdoors Truck Series victory.

“You just don’t know what to expect when it comes to Canadian Tire Motorsport Park,” Self explained. “The action is always fierce, and the race very well could play out to a fuel mileage race. There’s a good group of trucks that are touting for that championship spotlight, but there are some pretty good teams not in the Playoffs that are trying to make their own statement and I feel like we’re one of those teams.

“Just have to keep our No. 22 GO TEXAN | AM Technical Solutions Chevrolet on-track and see what the checkered flag will bring.”

To aid in Self’s return to CTMP, the 23-year-old has been trying to familiarize with road course racing again with participation in road course schools and even non-stock car road course events.

In three prior starts at the Bowmanville, Ontario road course, Self has earned a track-best ninth in 2017, while qualifying a career-best 18th last August.

“Anything helps,” Self added. “If you get yourself tuned into road course mode, it just helps makes the transition seamless for our No. 22 GO TEXAN | AM Technical Solutions Chevrolet team.”

Austin Wayne Self; AM Racing ride momentum to Thunder Valley

BRISTOL, Tenn: Capturing a strong and season-high fifth-place finish this past weekend at Michigan International Speedway, Austin Wayne Self (@AustinWSelf) and his AM Racing team hope to carry the momentum and deliver another strong performance in Thursday night’s UNOH 200 at Bristol (Tenn.) Motor Speedway.

The recent upswing in performance of the Mooresville, N.C.-based team, including two top-six finishes in the last four races is certainly turning heads but for Austin, Texas native Self, he knows their recent performance is hopefully a taste of what’s to come.

“Things are really good at AM Racing right now,” said Self who earned his second career top-five finish at Michigan. “The AM Racing guys have worked hard all year long and we’re being rewarded now with some strong finishes. We’re not done though. We want to keep going and keep getting better.”

Self credits his crew chief Eddie Troconis for his motivation and his determination to succeed with the hopes of making AM Racing winners before the end of the season.

“I know we’re at the beginning of the Playoffs, but we can win,” offered Self. “We are getting there. With our finishes at Kentucky and Michigan and our performances at Pocono and Eldora, I think we’ve risen our team a notch.

“We can’t be too complacent though. We have to keep working hard and not settle for what we’re doing. Yes, we are running good and I’m comfortable with the trucks, but we have to get better.

“As long as we keep taking steps in the right direction, we’re going to end our season on a high note.”

The 23-year-old will make his fourth career start at Bristol Motor Speedway and looks to improve on his 13th place finish at the 0.533-mile short track from last August.

“I love Bristol,” Self said with a smile. “It’s short track racing at its finest. It’s a fast place where things happen in a hurry, so you have to be on your toes.

“Momentum is key at Bristol and track position is critical too. We just need to unload strong and keep fine-tuning our No. 22 GO TEXAN | AM Technical Solutions Chevrolet Silverado and see if we can’t get ourselves another top-10 finish on Thursday night.”

Texas Department of Agriculture’s GO TEXAN program will support Self in his 78th career Truck Series start.

Austin Wayne Self, AM Racing ready to roar in the Motor City

BROOKLYN, Michigan: Fresh off a solid top-15 finish in the NASCAR Gander Outdoors Truck Series (NGOTS) race this past Thursday night at Eldora Speedway, Austin Wayne Self (@AustinWSelf) and his AM Racing team return to pavement racing for Saturday afternoon’s Corrigan Oil 200 at Michigan International Speedway.

Self and his Mooresville, N.C.-based team are upbeat about motoring to the Motor City aiming to deliver their third top-10 finish together this season just outside of Detroit.

“Michigan is a pretty cool race track,” said Self. “It’s a fast place with wide lanes and provides plenty of opportunities to pass – like a superspeedway.

“As fast as Michigan is though, it’s also a momentum track and you need to have that momentum in the draft to make that pass, especially on the straightaways.”

Self will make his fourth start at the 2.0-mile and is eager to build on his track-best finish of 11th last August. His worst truck finish in the Irish Hills is 16th in his track debut in 2016.

Additionally, the Austin, Texas native has two ARCA Menards Series starts at Michigan with two top-10 finishes and a ARCA track best of third in 2015.

Self chalks up his solid finishes at Michigan to balanced race cars and confidence behind the wheel.

“You have to be on your game at Michigan,” added Self. “One slip and you can lose a lot of time. Sometimes, it feels like every lap is a qualifying run. If you get into the pack, you find yourself battling back and forth for position thanks to the benefits of momentum and the draft.

“That provides good racing and ramps up the intensity level too. We’re bringing one of our best trucks to the track, so hopefully, we can have a good finish.”

The Corrigan Oil 200 marks the final race of the regular season and while the odds are stacked against the team to be apart of the Playoffs, Self says his team doesn’t plan to change their approach from the regular season to the Playoffs.

“I have a lot of respect for the competitors in the Playoffs and I will race them with respect, but we still need to make our noise too,” added Self. “We have a great race team with talented people and a great group of marketing partners.

“If we’re in a position to contend for the win or a good finish, Playoffs or not, we’re going for it. The Playoffs are about the championship contenders, but we definitely want to use these upcoming races to make our own noise too.”

Texas Department of Agriculture’s GO TEXAN program will support Self in his 77th career Truck Series start.

Austin Wayne Self and team ready to dig deep in the Eldora dirt

ROSSBURG, Ohio: The wait is finally over for NASCAR Gander Outdoors Truck Series (NGOTS) veteran Austin Wayne Self (@AustinWSelf).

The series treks from one of the biggest tracks on the schedule to Tony Stewart’s Eldora Speedway for Thursday night’s Eldora Dirt Derby and the opportunity for Self and his AM Racing team to deliver their third top-10 finish together this season.

Surprisingly, without much dirt experience, the annual dirt race has become a favorite for the Austin, Texas native.

From the aggressive practice sessions to the qualifying races and the thunderous applause when the engines are fired – the two-day spectacle is an experience that Self embraces and doesn’t take for granted.

“I’ve been waiting for this week all year,” said Self. “I love Eldora Speedway and getting to race on dirt. I’ve always had good runs at this place, and I feel it’s all about driving here, way different than anything we do all year.

“I would say this is one of the biggest NASCAR races of the year and it’s a pretty awesome experience to be a part of it.”

Self, 23, will make his third start at Eldora and after finishing inside the top-10 in his track debut in 2016, the Texan is ready to bounce back from an 18th place finish last year and collect his second top-10 in the last three races.

“Eldora can be a very physical race,” mentioned Self. “Especially on race day. But it’s important to keep your cool and manage your tires so you have something to work with at the end of the race. You never know what to expect as far as cautions are concerned, so putting ourselves in good position track wise I think is going to be key.

“It’s going to be a fun couple of days and I can’t wait to get there.”

Self and his Eddie Troconis head to the Buckeye State on the heels of a respectable top-15 Truck Series finish at Pocono (Pa.) Raceway, a weekend where Self ran double-duty and made his second ARCA Menards Series start of the season, earning a sixth-place finish in last Friday’s FORTS USA 150 at the 2.5-mile triangle.

Texas Department of Agriculture’s GO TEXAN program will support Self in his 76th career Truck Series 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 15th race of the year.

In 75 NGOTS races, the 2014 ARCA Menards Series Rookie of the Year has one top-five (second at Daytona 2017) and six top-10 finishes. The Texan maintains an average finish of 18.1 during his three years of competition.

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