AM Racing, Austin Wayne Self hope to roar in Talladega rumble

AM Racing, Austin Wayne Self hope to roar in Talladega rumble

TALLADEGA, Ala.: A prime opportunity is near for Austin Wayne Self and his AM Racing team and they intend to deliver.

Saturday marks the second and final superspeedway race of the 2020 NASCAR Gander RV & Outdoors Truck Series season and the chance for Self to earn his first top-10 finish of the season in Saturday afternoon’s Chevrolet Silverado 250.

In the series’ season-opener at Daytona (Fla.) International Speedway in February, Self was heading to the front in his No. 22 GO TEXAN | AM Technical Solutions Chevrolet Silverado, but the team was eliminated in a multi-truck accident that left the team with a sour finish.

Before the accident, Self had one of the fastest trucks on the track and with the direction of crew chief Eddie Troconis, there is little doubt in Self’s mind that once the green flag waves on Oct. 3, he’ll have a chance to finish what he started at Daytona.

“Even though we don’t always have the best of luck on the superspeedways, I always get excited about going to tracks like Daytona and Talladega,” said Self.

“It’s an opportunity for a smaller team like ours to have a presence on the bigger stage and compete for the win. Last year, the race had a surprise in Victory Lane with one of the smaller teams and that certainly is the motivation for our AM Racing team to go out on Saturday and keep that trend going.”

It was a superspeedway that Self earned his career-best NASCAR Gander RV & Outdoors Truck Series finish. In 2017, Self, finished second in the season-opener at Daytona.

Self still has flashbacks to that race more than three years ago and knows what it will take to be in a position to contend for his third career top-five finish.

“We had a strong truck that night,” Self recalled. “We had two trucks in the race with JJ Yeley as my teammate. We avoided the carnage in the race and both trucks were able to finish in the top-10.

“Coming to the checkered flag, there was a massive wreck on the backstretch and being at the right place at the right time allowed us to skate through the melee and finish second – and with the intensity level expected to be high on Saturday, it’s going to take a certain amount of luck and skill to aid us in getting a good finish.”

For the second time this season AIRBOX Air Purifier will serve as the primary marketing partner for Self’s No. 22 Chevrolet this weekend at Talladega.

AIRBOX Air Purifier enters the NASCAR arena on a mission to help make clean air pure and simple.

AIRBOX Air Purifier prides itself on having the absolute best commercial-grade air purifier on the market. It is categorically the best in every aspect, and it is built to last a lifetime.

True engineering controls solution based on a proven scientific technology to provide the desired indoor air quality you need. AIRBOX Air Purifier creates a Safe Air Plan to repopulate the business and create the safest possible environment for owners, employees, clients, students, visitors or just anyone who breathes air.

“In a time where everyone is looking to be a little healthier our partnership with AIRBOX Air Purifier is one that has a lot of potential,” said driver Austin Wayne Self.

AIRBOX Air Purifier is doing great work and is quickly becoming a spectacle in its industry and to have them on board for one of the popular races of the season makes sense. Hopefully, Saturday is a good race for us and we can shake the last few races where we’ve been fast – but had rotten luck.”

Even out of the Playoff picture, it’s still business as usual for the AM Racing team as Self expects the upward performance trend to continue to climb aboard his No. 22 GO TEXAN | AM Technical Solutions Chevrolet Silverado from now until Phoenix (Ariz.) Raceway in November.

“We’re a relatively small team, but sometimes David can beat the Goliath and at times we’ve been able to show that on track with our heart and passion of racing,” added Self. “We have a lot of people, including our partners who are devoted to our race team and focused on seeing our team succeed not only in 2020 but as we start to think ahead to 2021.”

In addition to primary partners AIRBOX Air Purifier and GO TEXAN, AM Technical Solutions, Don’t mess with Texas, CForce Bottling Company, Flying Circle, Kreuz Market and Prasek’s will serve as associate partners in the 19th race of the year.

In 102 NGROTS 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 18.8 during his five years of competition.

The Austin, Texas native is nestled 18th in the championship standings with five races remaining.

About AM Racing:

AM Racing is a NASCAR Gander Outdoors Truck Series (NGOTS) team owned by entrepreneur Tim Self.

Established in December 2015, AM Racing is headquartered in Mooresville, N.C. Operated by Self, a native of Austin, Texas, the team is prided on faith, honesty and intelligent performance

The team has named Austin Wayne Self as its driver for the 2019 season.

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.”

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 Canadian Tire Motorsport Park.

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 18th race of the year.

In 78 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 17.9 during his three years of competition.

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