Race Notes: Talladega Superspeedway

The NASCAR Camping World Truck Series returns to Talladega Superspeedway for the 19th event of the season.  Talladega, known for its high banked 2.66 mile racing surface has delivered exciting – big pack restrictor plate racing to the NASCAR Truck series since the inaugural race in 2006.  AM Technical Solutions Team Notes:

Austin Wayne Self, a native of the great state of Texas, along with his AM Racing NASCAR truck team, plan to unveil their red, white and blue No.22 ‘Trump-Pence, Make American Great Again’ tribute truck at this weekend’s NASCAR Camping World Truck Series – Fred’s Pharmacy 250 powered by Coca-Cola event at Talladega Superspeedway on October 22.  The Talladega race date which falls three weeks before the United States presidential election of 2016, provides a timely stage to show support.

AWS Talladega Superspeedway Quote:

“I’m excited to make my first career Truck Series start at Talladega.  I’ve had some decent results over the past couple years in the ARCA Series so I’m coming in with some experience – knowing what to expect.  These plate races are so intense, you’re up on the wheel the entire race with no time to relax.  These trucks are so aero sensitive. With the high speeds and tight racing you’ve really got to be patient and not make any mistakes or it will cost you.” -Austin Wayne Self
