Austin Wayne Self returns to Niece Motorsports at Iowa Speedway

NEWTON, IOWA – Officials from Niece Motorsports and AM Racing jointly confirmed today that Austin, Texas native Austin Wayne Self will return to the team and drive the No. 45 Toyota Tundra in Friday night’s M&M’s® 200 presented by Casey General Store at Iowa Speedway.

Self, 21, made his first NASCAR Camping World Truck Series (NCWTS) start with Niece Motorsports at Kansas Speedway in May where he qualified 21st before climbing to a respectable 15th place finish in the Toyota Tundra 250.

On the heels of back-to-back top-12 finishes at Charlotte (N.C.) Motor Speedway and Texas Motor Speedway respectively, Self hopes momentum propels him towards his second top-10 finish of the year on Friday night.

“I’m really excited about the opportunity to drive for Niece Motorsports again,” said Self who will make his fifth Truck Series start of the season. “We had some really good chemistry in our first race together at Kansas and I look forward to building off that at Iowa Speedway this weekend.”

In addition to one NCWTS start at Iowa Speedway last year in his rookie season at AM Racing, the 2014 ARCA SCOTT Rookie of the Year also has two starts in the developmental ARCA Racing Series presented by Menards with a track-best of sixth in July 2015.

In addition to Niece Equipment serving as the primary marketing partner at Iowa, AM Racing partner B&D Industries will serve as a major associate partner for the 200-lap race.

B&D Industries Inc. offers specialized expertise in electrical, plumbing, technologies, and HVAC systems, including construction, operation, maintenance and repair services.

After serving clients for over 60 years, B&D is more than just a company – they are a service business. B&D’s vision is to differentiate themselves so significantly through excellent service delivery and exceptional customer experience that they are able to change the industry – one project and one relationship at a time.

With Iowa not on AM Racing’s initial schedule, Self is thankful for another opportunity to race, especially at a race track he thoroughly enjoys.

“Iowa Speedway is a lot of fun and the fan base is incredible,” added Self, a 25-time NCWTS competitor. “We had a solid 16th place finish there in the truck last year and I’ve always been fast in an ARCA car. It’s a unique short track where speed and finesse is important.”

“Without a doubt, I think we can go to Iowa on Friday and contend for not only a top-15 finish, but maybe the cards will fall where we can contend for a top-10 finish.”

Niece Motorsports, which is owned by Marine Corps veteran Al Niece will compete in a partial schedule during the 2017 season, with plans of running full time moving into 2018 and beyond.

“Niece Motorsports is very excited to have Austin back with us at Iowa,” said team principal Al Niece. “He did an amazing job at Kansas. His on-track performances this year have been impressive and we look forward to seeing that continue under the lights on Friday night.”

Further information on Self’s upcoming NCWTS schedule at AM Racing is forthcoming.

 

The M&M’s® 200 presented by Casey General Store (200 laps / 175 miles) is the 11th of 23 NASCAR Camping World Truck Series races on the 2017 schedule. Practice begins on Fri., June 23 from 9:00 a.m. – 10:25 a.m. A final practice session is set for 11:15 a.m. – 12:15 p.m. Qualifying is set for later in the day beginning at 5:05 p.m. The truck field will take the green flag shortly after 7:30 p.m. with live coverage on FOX Sports 1 (FS1), the Motor Racing Network (Radio) and SiriusXM NASCAR Radio (Satellite Radio, Channel 90).

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.

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).

Austin Wayne Self propels to solid finish under Kansas Speedway lights

KANSAS CITY, Kan. – Competing in his first NASCAR Camping World Truck Series (NCWTS) race since Daytona (Fla.) International Speedway in February, Austin Wayne Self piloted the No. 45 Niece Equipment / Precision Air Technology Chevrolet to a solid finish in Friday night’s Toyota Tundra 250 at Kansas Speedway.

During practice on Thursday, Self and crew chief Cody Efaw spent the session getting accustomed to each other while continuing to work on the handling of their race truck in preparation for the fourth race of the 2017 season.

Picking up the pace considerably in qualifying, Self turned in the 21st quickest lap and immediately put his Niece Motorsports truck inside the top-20 during the early stages of the 167-lap race.

The team’s endless effort to keep up with their handling of their truck with the track’s changing conditions proved to be beneficial for Self as he hovered inside the top-20 for much of the race.

Making the most of the free pass on Friday night, Self found himself climbing inside the top-15 late and despite losing a lap to the leaders in the closing run, the 21-year-old was able to keep his competition at bay to finish 15th, a personal best at the 1.5-mile track in trucks.

“I’m really appreciative of the opportunity with Niece Motorsports,” said Self, a native of Austin, Tex. “We really had a good and productive race. We kept making adjustments on the truck and the changes allowed me to turn some really competitive laps to work our way forward. This is some good momentum for Niece Motorsports and myself heading to Charlotte.”

“I hope there may be another opportunity to work with Niece Motorsports down the road. I certainly enjoyed it. I want to thank Cody (Efaw) and everyone on the 45 crew and of course Niece Equipment and Precision Air Technology for the opportunity to race.”

Next up for the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series is a stop at Charlotte (N.C.) Motor Speedway for the running of the N.C. Education Lottery 200 on Friday night, May 19.

Austin Wayne Self, who led the AM Racing team to their career-best finish in the series with a runner-up performance in the season-opening NextEra Energy Resources 250 at Daytona (Fla.) International Speedway in Feb., is proud to represent a new partner.

AM Racing; Austin Wayne Self partner with RBI Austin

MOORESVILLE, N.C. – NASCAR Camping World Truck Series (NCWTS) driver Austin Wayne Self announced through his AM Racing team that he has partnered with Reviving Baseball in Inner Cities (RBI) Austin, an inner-city youth group as an advocate for the remainder of the 2017 season.

RBI Austin exists to engage and develop inner-city Austin youth athletically, academically and spiritually, empowering them to lead the transformation of their communities.

Self, a native of Austin, Tex. attended an RBI function last month and immediately decided he wanted to partner with RBI Austin not only as an advocate, but as a contributor too.

RBI Austin targets youth and families from Austin’s inner-city communities. RBI Austin currently serves boys and girls ages 4-12, boys from the ages of 13 – 18 and girls 13 – 15. In 2016, RBI Austin served and mentored 853 kids.

“This is something I’m very excited about being a part of,” said Austin Wayne Self, driver of the No. 22 AM Racing Toyota Tundra. “While continuing to do my duty on the race track in our Toyota Tundra, I wanted to find something from my hometown that I not only can be a part of, but continue to give back not only in 2017 but for years to come.”

“I can’t wait to get back down to Austin and spend some time with the kids. We focus on baseball, but it’s an awesome feeling for me when they ask about NASCAR and what we do at AM Racing too.”

All RBI programs are run by local organizations including Boys & Girls Clubs, MLB and Minor League Baseball Clubs, faith-based organizations, community-based organizations, independent baseball / softball organizations, and grassroots organizations. RBI Austin is under the umbrella of local nonprofit, The For the City Network.

Matt Price, Founder and Director for RBI Austin says having a local celebrity like Austin Wayne Self is important in the growth and values of the non-profit organization.

“RBI Austin is thrilled to partner with Austin Self and AM Racing to engage and develop inner-city youth athletically, academically, and spiritually,” Price said. “Every child needs a strong community of support to thrive, and we’re grateful that Austin has chosen to give his time and efforts to help promote the value and importance of mentors in our inner-city communities. “

“We look forward to Austin being a role model and advocate for inner-city kids in Austin and beyond.”

To intertwine the two worlds, AM Racing and RBI Austin will work close together throughout the season with the intent to bring RBI Austin members to a race track – where they’ll be able to explore another world of professional sports – while also bringing further attentiveness to RBI Austin’s mission.

Self, 21, says being a role model is a chance for him to give back for all the blessings he’s received not only in life, but seeing his dream blossom into fruition as a race car driver.

“It doesn’t matter how old you are or how much time you spend with someone – if you make the effort, the fulfilling is irreplaceable. I’ve been called a mentor and even a hero being a race car driver and that’s real cool and all, but if you’re not getting out there and truly making a difference – then none of that matters. I’m proud to be a role model in several ways and look forward to the challenges and blessings that being a part of RBI Austin will bring.”

Crissa Youngblood, a RBI Austin mentor nearly echoed Self’s sentiment.

“I think someone should become a mentor because kids wants somebody in their life,” she said. “You can be their answer, but it will also bless you a lot.”

Austin Wayne Self earns career-best second Truck Series finish at Daytona

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. – AM Racing driver Austin Wayne Self had to play the strategy game during Friday night’s NextEra Energy Resources 250 at Daytona (Fla.) International Speedway.

The strategy paid off to near perfection as Self was able to negotiate past a wild last lap backstretch melee to earn a second-place finish to kick off his 2017 NASCAR Camping World Truck Series (NCWTS) season.

In practice Thursday, Self, 20, focused solely on single-truck runs given AM Racing’s newly introduced 32 team did not have owner points to fall back on as did their 22 Team

That focus paid off with Self qualifying 22nd on Friday afternoon.

Just two laps into the race, a 17-truck accident occurred entering Turn 1 causing some front-end damage to Self’s No. 32 Don’t Mess with Texas Toyota Tundra.

Quick work instructed by crew chief Bill Henderson sent the Texan back into the race on the lead lap.

For the remaining two stages, Self kept his truck out of trouble and on the lead lap knowing if he didn’t suffer any further damage he would be a contender during the third 60-lap stage shootout.

Throughout the final stage, Self kept his sights on the leaders, while hovering between 10th and 13th.

When a caution waived less than five laps from the finish, it set the tone for a chaotic finish.

Restarting 12th on a green, white, checker, Self charged up the middle with a run to seventh before moving to the bottom going into turn 1 for a final push to the checkered flag.

When trucks began spinning and flying through the air on the backstretch, the Austin, Texas native stayed on the gas, drove his truck to the bottom and cleared the carnage to emerge to a second-place finish when the field was frozen under caution.

Along with Self’s career-best run, AM Racing Teammate J.J. Yeley scored his personal Truck Series best at the 2.5-mile superspeedway with a ninth place run in the No. 22 Legrand / Superior Essex Toyota.

The effort was Self’s first top-five finish and second career top-10 in 23 races. Self also bested his Daytona performance from last February at the “World Center of Racing” where he finished 19th.

“What an unbelievable night for our AM Racing team,” said Self. “For putting this team together three weeks ago, a second-place finish in Daytona says a lot about our Program. I can’t thank Bill (Henderson, Crew Chief) enough, our guys on the AM Racing Team and of course our AM Racing partners, especially AM Technical Solutions and B&D Industries Inc. Thanks to Toyota and the Born in Texas Toyota Tundra. Big gratitude to Mark Cronquist and the Joe Gibbs Engine Shop.

“We’ll look for some more of these types of runs this season.”

Team principal Tim Self said he was extremely appreciative and humbled by the performance of his two teams Friday night.

“Great Team effort!,” said Tim Self.” Kevin Cywinski (Director of Competition) and the entire shop came together and worked their butts off the last two weeks getting two ARCA teams and two Truck teams to Daytona on back to back weekends. I’m just grateful to be part of this team.”

“I was proud to see both work very well together during the race and on that last lap, both drivers did their best with all the chaos and we came away with a top-five and top-10 finish. Other than a win, it doesn’t get much better than that. It may have not been the win, but it sure feels like one.”

For the season-opener, Self drew additional support for the race from Don’t Mess with Texas, Go Texan and their partners Hardcore Carnivore and Big Red. Techline, Snaptrack and JB Henderson Construction as associate

Next up for the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series is a double-header with the XFINITY Series at Atlanta Motor Speedway for the running of the Active Pest Control 200 on Sat., Mar. 4.

Austin Wayne Self to Drive Second AM Racing Truck at Daytona

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. – Surrounded by plenty of support, officials from AM Racing confirmed today that 20-year-old Austin Wayne Self will drive the team’s newest entry, the No. 32 Toyota Tundra in Friday night’s NextEra Energy Resources 250 at Daytona (Fla.) International Speedway.

“I can’t wait to get back to Daytona this week,” said Self. “The guys at the shop in North Carolina have really been working hard to put two competitive trucks together and I’m looking forward to seeing what we can do on the track later this week.”

Aiding Self’s efforts this week is longtime partner AM Technical Solutions.

Austin-based AM Technical Solutions (AMTS) is a leading construction management, project management and facility solutions firm for high-tech markets. AMTS provides diverse integrated solutions across a facilities life cycle to include new cleanroom construction, integrated construction management, total quality programs, capital asset solutions and cleanroom certification and testing.

In addition to AMTS, Self’s No. 32 Toyota Tundra will have major partnership support from B&D Industries Inc.,

Based in Albuquerque, N.M., B&D Industries Inc. was founded in 1955 offers specialized expertise in electrical, plumbing, technologies and HVAC systems, including construction, operation, maintenance and repair services.

“The ongoing support from AM Technical Solutions means a lot, but I’m equally proud to represent our newest partner B&D Industries. Daytona is such an important race, not only because it’s the first race in the season, but because it’s one of our biggest races of the year. We had a decent showing last year, so I’m hoping we can go out there on Friday night, put ourselves in a good spot and have a good finish. Everyone deserves it.”

Self has drawn additional support for the race from Don’t Mess with Texas, Go Texan and their partners Hardcore Carnivore and Big Red. Techline, Snaptrack and JB Henderson Construction comprise the remainder of the lineup.

Looking for his second career top-10 finish on Friday night, Self knows finding himself in the right spot at the right time is crucial to superspeedway success, but the former ARCA Racing Series Rookie of the Year is also hoping to work close with new teammate JJ Yeley who will drive the team’s flagship No. 22 Toyota Tundra Friday night.

“JJ is pretty good at superspeedway racing and I know he can teach me a thing or two,” Self explained. “I plan to talk to him a lot during practice on Thursday and see if we can’t deploy a strategy that will be effective for the both of us. When it comes down to the race, we just have to see how it goes. If we can find ourselves together, we know what the goal is. Hopefully, we can make it a reality.”

AM Racing team principal Tim Self says he’s proud to see his young team thrive and enter two trucks for Friday night’s highly-anticipated race.

“Last year at Daytona was a huge accomplishment for AM Racing by successfully qualifying for the race,” explained Self. “This year, with a lot of hard work and dedication, we’re proud to bringing two trucks down to Daytona with two capable drivers. Both of our drivers do an excellent job representing our partners and we’ll leave it in their hands to do what they know is best for Friday night.”

Bill Henderson will crew chief Self’s efforts this weekend at Daytona. The 2017 NCWTS season-opener also marks the debut of Joe Gibbs Racing engines for AM Racing who made the engine switch during the offseason.

Prior to joining the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series in 2016, Self, competed for two season in the ARCA Racing Series where he earned one win (Winchester 2015), finished second in the championship standings and won the S&S Volvo Most Laps Completed award.

The NextEra Energy Resources 250 (100 laps / 250 miles) is the first of 23 NASCAR Camping World Truck Series on the 2017 schedule. Practice begins on Thurs, Feb. 23 from 2:00 p.m. – 2:55 p.m. A final practice session is set for 4:00 p.m. – 4:55 p.m. Qualifying is set for race day, Fri., Feb. 24 beginning at 4:30 p.m. The 32-truck field will take the green flag shortly after 7:30 p.m. with live coverage on FOX Sports 1, the Motor Racing Network (Radio) and SiriusXM NASCAR Radio (Satellite Radio, Channel 90).

NASCAR driver Austin Wayne Self to attend 2017 Presidential Inaugural Ball

MOORESVILLE, N.C. – While members of his AM Racing team are readily preparing for the 2017 NASCAR Camping World Truck Series (NCWTS) season, driver Austin Wayne Self joined by AM Racing president Tim Self will attend Thursday night’s Black Tie & Boots Presidential Inaugural Ball at the Gaylord National Harbor in Maryland.

Self’s No. 22 ‘Trump-Pence Make America Great Again’ Toyota Tundra that competed in last October’s fred’s 250 at Talladega (Ala.) Superspeedway will also be on display for event attendees.

Designated as a V.I.P. for the black-tie affair, Self will sign autographs from 10:30 p.m. – 11:30 p.m. at the National Harbor Sports Bar as part of his entertainment responsibilities on Jan. 19.

20-year-old Self participated in his first presidential election this past November and has been vocal about showing his support for president-elect Donald Trump and vice president Mike Pence.

“I’m very humbled to have the opportunity to represent AM Racing at Thursday night’s Black Tie & Boots Presidential Inaugural Ball,” said driver Austin Wayne Self. “We were proud of our commitment to show support to the Republican party at Talladega with a strong top-15 finish.

“While I’m excited to have our Talladega truck on display, I said last October that politics has never been really that important to me until recently, but now more than ever we need change. President elect Donald Trump and his values are in line with my beliefs. I’m a big supporter of his business background and believe his experience is what our country has been waiting for. I’m excited to continue to show my support with those closest to me as we welcome a new president into office.”

The state of Texas, home of both Self and his primary partner AM Technical Solutions, has a strong reputation for its longstanding support of the Republican Party. For team principal and owner Tim Self, he is proud to be a part of a historical event.

“Our mission with the ‘Trump-Pence Make America Great Again’ truck was to make a small difference,” said AM Racing owner Tim Self. “I felt we did that and more. Now, we’re proud to stand beside our new president and his staff and rebuild our country on a foundation of Godly values.

“Thursday night will be a remarkable night for our AM Racing team and I couldn’t be more proud.”

News of AM Racing’s Trump-Pence presidential support garnished high marks in their home state of Texas. As a proud partner of the Texas Departure of Agriculture’s GO TEXAS agri-business program, the second-year NASCAR team received kudos from the commissioner of Agriculture, among other supporters.
