Justin Fontaine upbeat about Michigan ARCA debut

BROOKYLN, Mich. – Set for his fourth ARCA Racing Series presented by Menards start of the season, newcomer Justin Fontaine (@driverfontaine) heads to the Irish Hills of Michigan International Speedway (MIS) eyeing his first career top-10 finish in Friday afternoon’s Corrigan Oil 200.

With the support of AM Racing and their development team Win-Tron Racing, Fontaine heads north to the Great Lakes state looking to bounce back from a frustrating weekend at Pocono (Pa.) Raceway.

After practicing well during the series’ open test last Wednesday afternoon, Friday’s practice session saw Fontaine’s car suffer right-side damage – forcing the team to revert to a backup car for the race later in the day.

Through a never-give up attitude and the determination to finish the race, Fontaine climbed from his 33rd place starting position and gambled on fuel mileage.

Unfortunately, late in the General Tire #AnywhereIsPossible 200, the No. 33 ProMATIC Team didn’t get the caution flag they were hoping for and had to pit under green flag conditions and settle for a 21st place finish.

With Pocono in the rear-view mirror, Fontaine is looking out the windshield and ready to get back on track at Michigan’s fast two-mile oval.

“Pocono was a little frustrating, but we made the most of a tough situation,” said Fontaine. “Without a doubt, I gained valuable track time that will be paramount for my return to Pocono next month.”

Set to make another track debut on Friday afternoon, Fontaine has spent the last few days studying everything he can when it comes to Michigan International Speedway.

From chatting it up with friends, reviewing audio and video and even conferring with advisor Kevin Cywinski, Fontaine knows that he’ll be facing another challenge, but nothing that he can’t conquer.

“Pocono was a huge track, but Michigan is huge and insanely fast,” added Fontaine. “It looks like a fun place to race because there’s seems like a bunch of opportunity to pass. But, handling seems equally important. No doubt we plan to utilize the two-hour practice session on Thursday to the best of our ability and hope we have a good foundation for qualifying and the race on Friday.”

Knowing a tough field awaits the eighth race of the ARCA season, Fontaine says running competitive and the opportunity to finish inside the top-10 would feel like a victory.

“You never know what could happen in 100 laps,” Fontaine explained. “Really anything can happen. But, for our No. 33 team, we need to go out there, be competitive and clean and run all the laps. At the end of the day, if we’re able to finish inside the top-10, it will be a huge confidence booster for me and this team to take to Madison next weekend.”

Win-Tron Racing team Principal Kevin Cywinski says Fontaine’s outlook is the best medicine for him to recover from Pocono.

“Justin was the leader of the team last weekend at Pocono,” he said. “After the strong run at Elko, we had high hopes for Pocono. Things happened and we had to fight through some adversity. Justin didn’t get down or point fingers, instead he’s the cheerleader reminding the team we’re going to be just fine.”

“And He’s right, we will.”

Currently 20th in the series’ standings, Fontaine has a career best finish of 11th at Elko (Minn.) Speedway in June.

While sticking with a heavy ARCA schedule for now, Fontaine’s focus is expected to turn towards the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series where he’ll compete in a limited schedule this summer in an AM Racing entry.

The Corrigan Oil 200 (100 laps / 200 miles) is the eighth of 20 races on the 2017 ARCA Racing Series presented by Menards schedule. Practice begins Thurs., June 15 with a two-hour practice session planned from 1:00 p.m. – 3:00 p.m. General Tire pole qualifying is set for race day, Fri., June 16 at 1:40 p.m. The race is set to take the green flag later in the day shortly after 6:00 p.m. The event will be broadcasted live on FOX Sports 1 (FS1) at 6:00 p.m., while ARCARacing.com will stream live timing and scoring throughout the week’s activities.

Solid finishes keep Austin Wayne Self upbeat looking ahead

MOORESVILLE, N.C. – AM Racing driver Austin Wayne Self wasn’t sure what exactly to expect in his sophomore season of NASCAR Camping World Truck Series (NCWTS) competition, but solid runs have propelled the Austin, Tex. native forward and eager to get into the summer stretch.

Self’s year started out in a huge way with a second-place finish in the season-opening NextEra Energy Resources 250 at Daytona (Fla.) International Speedway. Not only did the former ARCA Racing Series Rookie of the Year mount his best finish, but his team in their debut of two trucks left the 2.5-mile superspeedway with both trucks inside the top-10.

While their next outing at Martinsville Speedway on April 1 didn’t turn out as hoped, the team led by crew chief Bill Henderson and team consultant Rick Ren refused to let a setback stand in their way.

So, they made the two-hour trip back home and went to work.

And they worked hard.

Getting an opportunity to keep in the seat for his next planned race at Charlotte (N.C.) Motor Speedway, Self teamed up with Niece Motorsports where at Kansas Speedway he drove the team’s Chevrolet to a top-15 finish.

The following week in his AM Racing return, the 22-year-old qualified 18th and muscled his way to a respectable 12th place finish.

In his most recent race at Texas Motor Speedway, Self looked to his hometown track not only to make some noise but prove that the team’s Charlotte performance was no fluke on an intermediate track.

Armed with support from fellow Texans in his home state, Self qualified a career-best 15th, quickly bolted inside the top-10 and remained amongst the lead pack for the entire race, before a loose race truck got the most of the young driver on the last lap of race while battling for sixth.

Still, while Self’s night ended on the front stretch grass in the winstaronlinegaming.com 400, there wasn’t a grim face afterwards. His performance last Friday night could easily be dubbed as one of the best yet by the racer who says he now carries tons of momentum moving forward.

“We had such a great truck on Friday night,” recalled Self. “I sincerely appreciate all the hard work of the AM Racing team and all of the support from our marketing partners.  To have all of this support at what I consider to be my home track means a lot – but to run as well as we did meant even more.”

“I’m still learning – but I have learned a bunch and it paid off with a strong showing. We didn’t get the finish that we wanted, but it was still something that we could walk away from and be proud of. I can’t wait to get back on the track soon.”

Mixing it up with veterans Matt Crafton, Johnny Sauter and Timothy Peters, Self said he enjoyed racing in circles amongst the best of the best and hopes he is starting to earn their respect.

“We’ve worked hard to build AM Racing into a competitive operation,” Self said. “I felt privileged having the opportunity to race and compete with guys like Crafton and Sauter – but also duke it out with the younger guys like myself who are trying to make a name. We got a sniff of that at Charlotte but at Texas it was all out.”

“I am so pumped about getting back in a truck, I really am.”

Justin Fontaine looks for solid finish in Pocono Raceway ARCA debut

LONG POND, Pa. – Less than a week from competing on the smallest track on the ARCA Racing Series presented by Menards tour, AM Racing and their development team Win-Tron Racing set their sights with newcomer Justin Fontaine (@driverFontaine) for his Pocono Raceway debut in Friday’s General Tire #AnywhereIsPossible 200.

Returning to ARCA last weekend since suffering a mild compression fracture of his L1 vertebrae during a late-race accident in ARCA’s season-opening at Daytona International Speedway in February, Fontaine quickly burst back onto the scene appearing to not miss a beat.

After starting 12th in the Shore Lunch 250 at Elko, Fontaine minded his manners to a solid 11th place finish completing all but one lap in his Elko Speedway debut.

On Friday afternoon, Fontaine looks to break into the top-10 and continue to tally firm top-15 performances as he continues to adapt and learn.

“Elko went very well, all things considered,” said Fontaine. “We had a good day and night. I learned a lot about our No. 33 ProMATIC Toyota Camry throughout the day. I got a little too comfortable with my pace during the race and that’s how we found ourselves a lap down.”

“I learned from that though. It’s going to be a whole new ballgame this week at Pocono Raceway, but I’m ready for the next challenge and continue to build my ARCA resume.”

To familiarize himself with Pocono’s Tricky Triangle, Fontaine was one of 30 drivers who elected to partake in an open test session at the 2.5-mile speedway Wednesday. While the session was stalled for most of the day by a damp race track, Fontaine did get to turn his first laps in Long Pond shortly before 2:00 p.m.

When the session concluded, Fontaine timed in 18th quickest.

“Wrapped up my test session at Pocono and it felt great,” said Fontaine, a development driver for AM Racing. “Pocono was nothing like I’ve ever experienced before, but it felt great to make some laps in our No. 33 ProMATIC / Techline Toyota Camry.”

“We picked up every time I turned a lap and we showed good consistency throughout the day. Looking forward to seeing what we can put together Friday.”

Part of Fontaine’s learning experience included checks and balances. Finding more speed sometimes means sifting out of your comfort zone and trying new lines. The Fletcher, N.C. native did that on Wednesday and rubbed the wall in the Tunnel Turn.

While the damage was minimal to his car, Fontaine said he learned from it.

“I’m glad I did it Wednesday rather than during qualifying or the race on Friday,” noted Fontaine on the right-side scrap. “I’m going to be doing a lot of studying before I get back on the track. I have a feeling when I come back to Pocono at the end of July, I’m going to feel a little more like a veteran.”

Win-Tron Racing team Principal Kevin Cywinski who attended the Pocono Raceway test says Fontaine achieved the goals set before him.

“Pocono isn’t a place you get comfortable with in just a lap or two,” added Cywinski. “But, by the end of the day – Justin seemed like he knew where he needed to be and was eager for more track time. We accomplished our goals for the test and now we feel confident going into Friday with the outlook that we can concentrate solely on race setup.”

“A top-10 finish without a doubt is achievable for Justin in his Pocono debut.”

While sticking with a heavy ARCA schedule for now, Fontaine’s focus is expected to turn towards the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series where he’ll compete in a limited schedule this summer in an AM Racing entry.

The General Tire #AnywhereIsPossible 200 (80 laps / 200 miles) is the eighth of 20 races on the 2017 ARCA Racing Series presented by Menards schedule. Practice begins Fri. June 9 with an hour and 25-minute practice session planned from 9:30 a.m. – 10:55 a.m. General Tire pole qualifying is set for later in the day at 2:00 p.m. The race is set to take the green flag later that day shortly after 5:30 p.m. The event will be broadcasted live on FOX Sports 1 (FS1), while ARCARacing.com will also stream live timing and scoring throughout the day’s activities.

Austin Wayne Self readies Texas Motor Speedway return

FORT WORTH, Tex. – Riding the momentum from two consecutive top-15 finishes in his most recent NASCAR Camping World Truck Series (NCWTS), AM Racing driver Austin Wayne Self seeks to keep the momentum train rolling in Friday night’s winstaronlinegaming.com 400 at Texas Motor Speedway.

Not only is Texas Motor Speedway considered Self’s hometown track, but the 1.5-mile speedway is the site of one of Self’s career-best finishes on an intermediate track last June.

“I can’t wait to get back on the track this week,” said Self, a native of Austin, Texas. “We’ve had a lot of good things happen with our AM Racing team over the last month or so and we really need to carry this momentum to Texas on Friday night.”

“It an important race for a lot of reasons, I consider Texas Motor Speedway to be my home track and I always strive to do better than I did last time. Not only for myself but also for the team and partners that we have on board.”

Armed with a similar truck that he raced at Charlotte (N.C.) Motor Speedway last month, Self says he hopes he can take with what he learned in his 12th-place finish and apply it at Texas.

“I have a couple starts in a truck at Texas, but this weekend will be a little different,” Self explained. “Texas has an adjusted layout and new asphalt. That has the tendency to make things a little interesting.”

“Thankfully, we have three practice sessions on Thursday to dial in our No. 22 Toyota Tundra and see what we can come up with for the race. As good as we ran at Charlotte, I would be disappointed with anything less than another top-15 finish.”

Self, 22, will make his third career NCWTS start at Texas Motor Speedway with a track best of 13th after starting 18th last June. Earlier this year Self scored his career-best finish in trucks with a runner-up showing in the season-opening NextEra Energy Resources 250 at Daytona (Fla.) International Speedway in Feb.

The winstaronlinegaming.com 400k (167 laps / 250.5 miles) is the seventh of 23 NASCAR Camping World Truck Series races on the 2017 schedule. Practice begins on June 8 from 3:00 p.m. – 3:55 p.m., a second practice session has been etched from 5:00 p.m. – 5:55 p.m. with a final practice session is set for 7:00 p.m. – 7:55 p.m. Qualifying is set for race day, Fri., June 9 beginning at 4:35 p.m. The 32-truck field will take the green flag shortly after 7:00 p.m. with live coverage on FOX Sports 1 (FS1), the Motor Racing Network (Radio) and SiriusXM NASCAR Radio (Satellite Radio, Channel 90). All times are local (Central).

Don’t Mess With Texas® Expands Relationship with AM Racing

MOORESVILLE, N.C., May 25, 2017 — On the heels of a strong finish this past Friday night in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series (NCWTS) at Charlotte (N.C.) Motor Speedway, officials from AM Racing proudly announced today their relationship with Don’t mess with Texas has expanded for the remainder of the 2017 season.

The Don’t mess with Texas campaign is part of the Texas Department of Transportation’s (TxDOT) litter prevention program, which includes Don’t mess with Texas, Adopt-a-Highway, and a grassroots partnership with Keep Texas Beautiful.  For more than 30 years, Don’t mess with Texas has made tremendous progress educating Texans about the impact of littering on the state’s economy, environment and physical landscape.

“Community outreach is an important component of the Don’t mess with Texas campaign,” said Brenda Flores-Dollar, program administrator for TxDOT’s Don’t mess with Texas campaign. “The continuing partnership with AM Racing enables us to further raise awareness about the effort to reduce litter in Texas and educate a wider audience on how they can help.”

With the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series invading Texas Motor Speedway for its first of two trips to the 1.5-mile track, Don’t mess with Texas will be predominately displayed on the hood of the No. 22 Toyota Tundra driven by Austin, Tex. native Austin Wayne Self on June 9.

“I’m very proud to continue my relationship with TxDOT and the Don’t mess with Texas campaign,” said Austin Wayne Self. “, the Don’t mess with Texas initiative is successfully reducing litter in my home state and is working to keep it vibrant and clean. I’m looking forward to seeing our race team continue to spread the message about its importance not only at Texas Motor Speedway in a few weeks, but all yearlong.”

Powered with an infrastructure that boasts Texas-based marketing partnerships at AM Racing, team principal Tim Self says the continuation of their relationship with the Don’t mess with Texas campaign is a mutual benefit.

“We’ve always been advocates for the Don’t mess with Texas campaign, even before our partnership at AM Racing last year,” said Tim Self, a successful entrepreneur from the Austin area. “However, because of our partnership, we’ve been able to work closely with our other Texas-based partners who also not only believe in their mission, but are eager to stand with us and help make Texas cleaner than it’s ever been. It’s a partnership that we’re proud to have, but equally honored to represent.”

Last year, Austin Wayne Self, as part of his ongoing partnership with TxDOT, was featured in a statewide television commercial produced by Fox Sports Southwest featuring the Don’t mess with Texas Trash & Treasure Hunt community cleanup awareness program.

Self, 22, will make his third career NCWTS start at Texas Motor Speedway in the running of the Rattlesnake 400 on June 9. The race will be broadcasted live on FOX Sports 1 (FS1), the Motor Racing Network (MRN) and SiriusXM Satellite Radio Channel 90 beginning at 8:00 p.m. (CST). Self’s best finish at the Fort Worth track is 13th in June 2016.

ARCA and NASCAR driver Justin Fontaine cleared to return to competition

MOORESVILLE, N.C. – Officials from AM Racing and their development team Win-Tron Racing jointly announced today that ARCA Racing Series presented by Menards and NASCAR Camping World Truck Series (NCWTS) driver Justin Fontaine (@driverFontaine) has been medically cleared to return to competition, effective immediately.

Fontaine, 19, suffered a mild compression fracture of his L1 vertebrae during a late-race accident in ARCA’s season-opening Lucas Oil Complete Engine Treatment 200 driven by General Tire at Daytona (Fla.) International Speedway on Feb. 18. He was released from Halifax Medical Center in Daytona Beach, Fla. the following afternoon.

With his clearance, Fontaine will return to ARCA and compete in Saturday’s Shore Lunch 250 at Elko (Minn.) Speedway aboard the No. 33 ProMATIC Automation Toyota Camry.

Fontaine, a native of Asheville, N.C. participated in a private test at Motor Mile (Va.) Speedway this past Friday, where the driver went through a grueling test session getting him re-acclimated behind the wheel – but more importantly making sure that Fontaine himself was comfortable and competitive.

After meeting with management and consulting with series’ officials, the decision was made for Fontaine to return this weekend.

“We had a really good testing session at Motor Mile,” said Fontaine. “I’ve kept a low profile and focused on myself and my recovery and I feel really good. The AM and Win-Tron guys really put a lot of time and effort into making sure I was comfortable behind the wheel, but equally putting me through different situations to make sure I was where I needed to be.“

“Daytona’s accident was a disappointment, but I realized it could have been much worse. I’m just thankful to my team, colleagues and my friends and family who went out of their to stay in touch during my recovery. I can’t wait to get back on the track Saturday and have a good finish.”

Fontaine will make his second career ARCA start but eyes a top-10 finish in his return to give him a boost he’d welcome ahead of a busy summer schedule.

“I’ve heard a lot about Elko, so I’m eager to get there and experience it for myself,” added Fontaine who was credited with a 13th place finish at Daytona. “The guys feel like we’ll have a good piece. The No. 33 team had a good short track car at Toledo Speedway a couple weeks ago – just some bad luck in the race.”

“If we can go out there on Saturday and qualify respectably and finish inside the top-10, I’d be thrilled for myself and ProMATIC Automation. It certainly would be something to build on heading to the upcoming races.”

Win-Tron Racing team principal Kevin Cywinski who attended the Motor Mile test says Fontaine quickly got up to speed and achieved the goals sought of him.

“You could tell right off the bat Justin was excited to be back behind the wheel of an ARCA car and it showed with his speed and finesse during the test,” offered Cywinski. “He gave us the feedback we were looking for and looked comfortable behind the wheel.”

“He’s keen on showing that the Daytona setback was just a fork in the road and he has what it takes not only to be competitive – but contend for wins too. Like Justin said, a top-10 finish is exactly what we need to get him back in a routine.”

While sticking with a heavy ARCA schedule for now, Fontaine’s focus is expected to turn towards the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series where he’ll compete in a limited schedule this summer in an AM Racing entry.

The Shore Lunch 250 (250 laps / 94 miles) is the sixth of 20 races on the 2017 ARCA Racing Series presented by Menards schedule. Practice begins Sat., June 3 with an hour and a half practice session planned from 1:30 p.m. – 3:00 p.m. General Tire pole qualifying is set for later in the day at 5:00 p.m. The race is set to take the green flag later that night shortly after 8:00 p.m. The event will be broadcasted live on MAVTV, while ARCARacing.com will also stream live timing and scoring throughout the day’s activities.

Austin Wayne Self, No. 22 AccuTech / Snap Track / Don’t Mess With Texas Toyota Tundra

NASCAR Camping World Truck Series (NCWTS) 

Charlotte (N.C.) Motor Speedway / N.C. Education Lottery 200

Box Score Report  

Race No. 5 of 23

 

Stats:

Started: 19th

Finished: 12th

Laps: 134 / 134

Status: Running

 

Quick Recap:

AM Racing driver Austin Wayne Self rallied from a speeding penalty and late-race contact with another competitor to finish a strong 12th in Friday night’s N.C. Education Lottery 200 at Charlotte (N.C.) Motor Speedway in the No. 22 AccuTech / Snap Track / Don’t Mess With Texas Toyota Tundra.

After qualifying 19th, Self ran as high as 10th before being slipping back to 16th inside the final 15 laps of the race. When the caution waved with seven laps to go, crew chief Bill Henderson brought the Austin, Tex. native down pit road for tires, a touch of fuel and a slight chassis adjustment to combat a loose No. 22 AM Racing Toyota.

Rocketing from 16th, with three laps to go, Self utilized the draft and even some side-drafting over the final four and a half miles to edge Austin Cindric for a 12th place finish, a career-best effort on an intermediate track bettering a 13th place run at Texas Motor Speedway last year.

Friday night’s result was the second consecutive top-15 finish for Self after finishing 15th last weekend at Kansas Speedway for Niece Motorsports.

 

Driver Quote:

“It was a good night for our No. 22 AccuTech / Snap Track / Don’t Mess With Texas Toyota. We kept adjusting the truck throughout the day, from qualifying to the race and had a pretty good truck during the race. We worked hard to muscle our way from 19th and contended for a top-10 finish before sliding back to 16th late in the game.”

“When the caution came out, we took advantage of the opportunity to pit and it paid off. Really stoked to get a good finish for AccuTech in their debut in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series and carry some momentum to some of our upcoming races.”

“I also wanted to say I’m glad Regan Smith is alright. It was just hard racing and tight quarters. I didn’t mean to get into him. I hate that happened, but just glad he is OK.”

 

Event Notes:

  • Austin Wayne Self finished 12th in the N.C. Education Lottery 200, his second career NASCAR Camping World Truck Series start at the 1.5-mile oval. The effort betters his 21st place finish at Charlotte last May.

 

  • In three NASCAR Camping World Truck Series races this season, Austin Wayne Self has collected one top-five and three top-15 finishes, including a career-best second at Daytona (Fla.) International Speedway in February.

 

  • Kyle Busch won the 15th annual N.C. Education Lottery 200 followed by Johnny Sauter (second), Christopher Bell (third), Ryan Truex (fourth) and Timothy Peters (fifth).

 

Next Race: Bar Harbor 200 at Dover (Del.) International Speedway on Fri., June 2.

Tyler Dippel set for ARCA Racing Series return at Toledo Speedway

TOLEDO, Ohio  – In an effort to strengthen his asphalt stock car program, officials from AM Racing’s development team Win-Tron Racing announced in a partnership with Rette Jones Racing (RJR) that NASCAR Next alumnus Tyler Dippel will compete in Sunday’s ARCA Racing Series presented by Menards race at Toledo Speedway.

Making his first ARCA start since 2015, Dippel, a full-time NASCAR K&N Pro Series competitor will drive the No. 33 TYCAR Trenchless Technologies / D and A Concrete Contractor Toyota in the Menards 200 presented by Federated Car Care for his fourth series start.

“This is a cool opportunity for me to take advantage of the weekend off in K&N and return to the ARCA Racing Series at Toledo,” said Dippel. “I appreciate the hard work of AM Racing, Win-Tron Racing and Rette Jones Racing for going to extreme measures to put this program together quickly. I’ve never been to Toledo in an ARCA car, but I’m anxious to get things going.”

Two years ago, Dippel, a native of Wallkill, NY made three ARCA starts for Lira Motorsports providing a career-best finish of fourth at Salem (Ind.) Speedway. With a top-five already on his resume in his most recent race, Dippel is hopeful to pick up where he left off.

“It’s been a while since I’ve been in ARCA, but the cars were a lot of fun to drive,” recalled Dippel. “I raced on two dirt tracks and a short track. We had some momentum with a strong top-five at Salem but then we decided to turn our concentration to K&N. I’m looking forward to seeing what Toledo is all about and hoping for the best on Sunday.”

Dippel’s ARCA return will be overlooked by his K&N East owner Mark Rette, a fixture in the ARCA Racing Series for the past decade. In 2009, Rette led Justin Lofton to the ARCA Racing Series championship for Eddie Sharp Racing.

Grooming young natural talent is nothing new to Rette, but he’s looking forward to having a presence back in ARCA this weekend with Dippel at a track he’s been successful in the past and with a driver he knows is eager to get up on the wheel.

“Running this weekend at Toledo is bound to help our K&N program,” said Rette who co-owns Rette Jones Racing with fellow ARCA and NASCAR driver Terry Jones. “We’re looking to get as much seat time for Tyler as possible on asphalt. The partnership with Kevin (Cywinski) of Win-Tron Racing makes sense and hopefully we can have two strong finishes with Tyler and Gus (Dean, No. 32 Toyota).”

Dippel’s K&N Pro Series East marketing partners D and A Concrete Contractor and TYCAR Trenchless Technologies will adorn his No. 33 Toyota Camry for Sunday’s fifth race of the season.

After five races on the NASCAR K&N Pro Series East tour, Dippel has earned a season-best finish of fifth at Greenville-Pickens (S.C.) Speedway in April and currently ranks 10th in the championship standings.

Austin Wayne Self looks for solid finish in Charlotte return

MOOORESVILLE, N.C. – On the heels of a superb top-15 finish this past weekend at Kansas Speedway, NASCAR Camping World Truck Series (NCWTS) sophomore driver Austin Wayne Self (@AustinWSelf) returns to his AM Racing team looking for another solid performance in Friday night’s N.C. Education Lottery 200 at Charlotte (N.C.) Motor Speedway.

Last Friday night, Self made his second NCWTS start of the season driving the No. 45 Niece Motorsports Chevrolet Silverado where the Austin, Tex. native steadily progressed through the 167-lap race and maneuvered a noteworthy 15th place performance.

This week, he’ll return to his home base AM Racing alongside new marketing partner Accu-Tech with hopes of earning his second top-10 finish of the season in the heart of NASCAR country.

“I’m really looking forward to Friday night’s race at Charlotte Motor Speedway with AM Racing,” said Self. “Even though I was driving for a different team, I’m really pumped right now after Kansas.”

“We have a new marketing partner on-board with Accu-Tech and I really want to have a good showing for them and build some momentum for our upcoming races.”

Accu-Tech is a nationwide distributor servicing the voice/data, security, audio/video, and wireless markets through its 35 stocking locations. With its unique approach to the industry and ongoing dedication to grow with its customers, Accu-Tech has been the contractor’s choice for the past 30 years.

Accu-Tech and their manufacturer partners are available for project planning and system design to provide a cost-effective solution while maintaining the highest level of performance.

To help prepare for Accu-Tech’s NCWTS debut, Self was one of several drivers who participated in a test session at Charlotte earlier this month. Spending the afternoon balancing their setup, Self and his team led by veteran crew chief Bill Henderson believe their notes will pay off Friday night.

“We spent a lot of the day and night working back and forth on the setup,” said Self. “Our race will be starting shortly before the sun sets, so keeping up with the track’s changing conditions is what we focused on.”

“We really learned a lot though and the guys have been working extremely hard in the shop since then too. I feel as though our conservative approach to the test will allow us to hammer down for the race.”

Self, 21, has 24 career NASCAR Camping World Truck Series starts with a career-best second place finish at Daytona (Fla.) International Speedway in Feb. 2017. An 18th place qualifying effort at Texas Motor Speedway is his best time trials effort to date.

The N.C. Education Lottery 200 (134 laps / 201 miles) is the fifth of 23 NASCAR Camping World Truck Series races on the 2017 schedule. Practice begins on Thurs., May 18 from 5:00 p.m. – 5:55 p.m. A final practice session is set for 7:00 p.m. – 7:55 p.m. Qualifying is set for race day, Fri., May 19 beginning at 4:45 p.m. The 32-truck field will take the green flag shortly after 8:30 p.m. with live coverage on FOX Sports 1 (FS1), the Motor Racing Network (Radio) and SiriusXM NASCAR Radio (Satellite Radio, Channel 90).
