AM Racing, Austin Wayne Self ready to roll the dice again at Las Vegas Motor Speedway

AM Racing, Austin Wayne Self ready to roll the dice again at Las Vegas Motor Speedway

LAS VEGAS, Nev: A perfect time.

The NASCAR Gander RV & Outdoors Truck Series returns to Las Vegas (Nev.) Motor Speedway for Friday night’s World of Westgate 200 and the 17th race of the season is exactly what Austin Wayne Self and the AM Racing needed.

Las Vegas is a place known for taking chances and with the team hungry for a top-10 finish in Truck Series competition, the opportunity to roll the dice in Sin City this weekend is definitely on the table.

Speed hasn’t been a problem for the AM Racing team over the last eight weeks, unfortunately, two races in particular at World Wide Technology Raceway and last week at Bristol (Tenn.) Motor Speedway saw missed opportunities for the operation as Self was involved in incidents, not of his making.

Bouncing back is important in sports and NASCAR is no different.

Knowing that crew chief Eddie Troconis is bringing Self a competitive truck and a chance to earn a top-10 finish – Self plans to make his move and hope it’s a blackjack type of feeling.

“I’m looking forward to Las Vegas this weekend,” said Self. “It’s one of the stops on the schedule that I know that we should be competitive and have an opportunity to put our AM Racing near the front.”

Self will make his eighth career start at the 1.5-mile speedway track. In his previous seven starts, he hasn’t finished worse than 21st which ironically came in his track debut in 2016.

To bookend the Las Vegas race this year, JB Henderson Construction is returning as the primary partner this weekend.

Established in 1959, JB Henderson performs general and mechanical contracting and is dedicated to serving their customers and employees through collaborative construction focused on safety, solutions, and skill.

“It is great to have JB Henderson Construction back on board this weekend at Las Vegas,” added Self. “They stepped up their commitment to our team this year and we’ve been able to represent them in a larger role which has been a big boost for our team.”

This weekend, Self returns to Las Vegas on the heels of back-to-back 17th place finishes last fall and this past February.

17th won’t cut it as far as Self is concerned. He hopes to rekindle the strength of their fall effort in 2018 where the team finished ninth after starting 25th.

“Las Vegas is a fun place to race,” he added. “The track has a lot of character and is very sensitive to weather. With no practice or qualifying, I know we’ll have to make some tweaks on our truck at the end of the first stage, especially as the track transition from day to night.

“We just need to make sure we can get our truck handling through the bumps and accelerating the way we want through exiting the turns and onto the straightaways.”

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 JB Henderson Construction and GO TEXAN, AM Technical Solutions, AIRBOX Air Purifier, Don’t mess with Texas, CForce Bottling Company, Flying Circle, Kreuz Market and Prasek’s will serve as associate partners in the 18th race of the year.

In 101 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 18.7 during his five years of competition.

The Austin, Texas native is nestled 17th in the championship standings with six races remaining.

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

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 19th race of the year.

In 79 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 17.8 during his three years of competition.

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