Austin Wayne Self and team ready to play in the dirt at Eldora Speedway

ROSSBURG, Ohio – Veteran NASCAR Camping World Truck Series (NCWTS) driver Austin Wayne Self (@AustinWSelf) doesn’t know what his second trip to Eldora Speedway will bring. However, the Niece Motorsports driver is keen on having a lot of fun in Wednesday night’s Eldora Dirt Derby.

 

Self will make his second Truck Series start at the famed Ohio dirt race track in this week’s highly anticipated race and hopes to return to the top-10 after finishing ninth in his Eldora debut in 2016.

 

And on the heels of yet another solid top-15 performance in his No. 22 GO TEXAN | AM Technical Solutions Chevrolet Silverado last Thursday night at Kentucky Speedway, the Austin, Texas native is hopeful that Eldora brings his fourth career top-10 run.

 

“I’m so ready for Eldora,” said Self who enters Eldora 14th in the championship standings. “It’s an important race, but it’s also one of the races we’ll have the most fun at too. It’s such a blast to be on the edge out of control while doing everything you can to get to the front.

 

“My debut at Eldora went better than I expected, and I hope I can utilize what I learn on Tuesday and Wednesday and bring home a good finish for our Niece Motorsports team.”

 

Posting his seventh top-17 finish or fifth top-15 finish in the last seven consecutive races, Self believes his team is on the cusp of a breakthrough where they’ll emerge from outside the teens and into the top-10 where they can become a threat as the heart of the Truck Series season surges forward.

 

“I’m really proud of my Niece Motorsports team,” added Self. “We’ve had to overcome some setbacks and some adversity over the last two months or so – but we’ve been diligently working to become a better race team and I think we’re just about there.

 

“Make no mistake about it, we want to be racing inside the top-10 each week and we’re gaining ground on that. We just need to keep taking steps forward and good things will come to our GO TEXAN team.”

 

For the first time this season, Niece Motorsports will field three Truck Series entries at Eldora Speedway with newcomer Max McLaughlin set to make his entrance into Trucks behind the wheel of the No. 38 Chevrolet Silverado on Wednesday night.

 

“I’m excited for Max,” added Self. “I’ve had some time to spend with him in the shop and he’s a great guy. “The Truck Series competition is no cakewalk, but his dirt experience should pay some dividends to him. I’m looking forward to the opportunity to not only race with him, but Justin (Fontaine, teammate) and hope we can bring strong finishes home for all three Niece Motorsports trucks.”

 

After 12 races, Self sits 14th in the series’ standings. He carries an average finish of 17.3 entering Eldora.

 

Like last year, the Texas Department of Agriculture’s GO TEXAN program and AM Technical Solutions will also support Self in his 53rd career start.

 

GO TEXAN represents Texas agri-business on state, national and international levels by building recognition with the GO TEXAN mark.

 

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 throughout the world.

 

Don’t mess with Texas, CForce Bottling Company, Flying Circle and Kreuz Market will serve as associate partners in the 13th race of the year.

 

In 52 NCWTS races, the 2015 ARCA Racing Series rookie of the year has one top-five (second at Daytona 2017) and three top-10 finishes. The Texan maintains an average finish of 18.5 during his three years of competition.

Austin Wayne Self keen on another solid weekend at Kentucky Speedway

SPARTA, Ky. – After a weekend off, allowing Austin Wayne Self (@AustinWSelf) and his Niece Motorsports team to charge their batteries, the group heads to Kentucky Speedway determined to score their first top-10 of the year in Thursday night’s Buckle Up In Your Truck 225.

 

Matching a season-high 13th place run at Chicagoland Speedway two weeks ago, Self and his No. 22 GO TEXAN Chevrolet team plan to use that momentum to their advantage for their second straight mile-and-a-half intermediate track.

 

“I’m ready to go,” said Self who sits 14th in the championship standings. “The break was nice to allow us to catch up a little bit and spend some time with family and friends, but it will be nice to get back in the saddle at Kentucky Speedway.”

 

The 22-year-old Self has four combined starts at the Northern Kentucky race track between the ARCA Racing Series and NASCAR Camping World Truck Series. While Self has been a fan of the high-speed and finesse of intermediate racing, he’s never been able to secure the finishes he’s hoped for at Kentucky.

 

“I’ve always enjoyed racing at Kentucky even though my finishes don’t show that,” explained Self who holds a track best finish of 11th in ARCA competition in 2015.

 

“Kentucky is a very weather sensitive track and even though it’s been repaved a couple years ago, I’ve heard the track is still getting rougher. The rougher the track is, the better racing it can produce, but it also creates a challenge for us when it comes to handling.

 

“We’ll work through that though. It’s a one-day show, so we need to make sure we have our No. 22 GO TEXAN | AM Technical Solutions Chevrolet Silverado dialed in as best as we can and then turn our concentration towards the race. It’s another event where we practice and qualify during the day and then race at night – so keeping up with the changes will be critical.”

 

At Chicagoland, the teams went through a similar pattern where they practiced and qualified during the day – then raced for 150 laps at night. Self’s truck was solid from the moment they unloaded until they took the checkered flag – but the Austin, Texas native says the team isn’t completely satisfied yet.

 

“Our effort at Chicagoland was something to be proud of for sure,” added Self. “The Niece Motorsports team has really been thrashing to make sure our trucks are as competitive as possible, and I think Chicagoland was a small victory for us. We carried the speed from practice to qualifying and then worked on it for the race.

 

“But, we just want a little more.

 

“Hopefully we can keep going in that right direction and have an opportunity for a top-10 finish on Thursday night, I feel like we certainly deserve it.”

 

At the halfway point of the season, Self says he’s thankful for the commitment from his Niece Motorsports teams in the first 11 races of 2018 – but offers there’s still plenty left to be accomplished.

 

“We’ve had some good runs and a lot of speed, but we want some better finishes to show off all of that,” added Self. “We have six top-17 finishes in the last seven races and that’s something to build on.

 

“I feel like our team is very capable of running in the top-10, we just need to keep working hard and hope a little luck comes our way too. I’m looking forward to the second half.”

 

After 11 races, Self sits 14th in the series’ standings. He carries an average finish of 17.6 entering Kentucky.

 

Like last year, the Texas Department of Agriculture’s GO TEXAN program and AM Technical Solutions will also support Self in his 52nd career start.

Austin Wayne Self readies for third Chicagoland Truck Series start

JOLIET, Ill. – Recording his fifth top-20 finish in the last six NASCAR Camping World Truck Series races, Austin Wayne Self (@AustinWSelf) and his Niece Motorsports team trek to Chicagoland Speedway, eyeing their first top-10 finish of the year in Friday night’s Overton’s 225.

 

Chicagoland Speedway is the final stop of a four-consecutive race stretch for the Truck Series, and while Self and his No. 22 GO TEXAN | AM Technical Solutions Chevrolet Silverado have shown raw speed at Texas, Iowa and Gateway respectively, the team is confident Self’s prior experience in the Windy City will pay dividends in the 11th race of the year.

 

“It’s different to go to Chicagoland at the end of June instead of mid-September, but maybe that’s a good thing for our Niece Motorsports team,” said Austin, Texas native Austin Wayne Self.

 

“Our Niece Motorsports team has worked really hard to get our No. 22 GO TEXAN | AM Technical Solutions Chevrolet Silverado pointed in the right direction and I feel very confident in our abilities – not only for Chicagoland but for the rest of the summer.

 

“We’ve been able to persevere through obstacles and still deliver solid finishes for our No. 22 Niece Motorsports team. Our passion for success is the energy we need to keep charging ahead and focused on getting the best finish not only for our team, but for all our marketing partners too.”

 

Unlike Gateway last weekend, Chicagoland is a scene of familiarity for the 22-year-old driver.

 

The Texan has two prior starts at the 1.5-mile race track, recording top 20 finishes in both events. Additionally, Self has two prior ARCA starts at the Joliet, Ill. facility in 2014 and 2015, respectively.

 

Four starts combined, Self is poised about his ability to earn his fourth career Truck Series top-10 Friday night.

 

“The Truck Series isn’t a cakewalk right now, the competition is incredibly tough,” added Self. “But, I think our Niece Motorsports team has made significant progress over the last couple of months, that we’re inching closer to the front with every given race.

 

“Chicagoland is like Kentucky Speedway or Kansas Speedway. You really need to have a truck that can wrestle the bumps and carry the speed through the corners onto the straightaways.

 

“Handling is going to be key Friday night, especially shifting from day to night. That is something we’re used too, so we should be fine.

 

“Our intermediate track program this year has been very solid, and I don’t expect anything less this weekend at Chicagoland. It will be nice to get another strong finish heading into an off week – then setting ourselves up for a fun stretch in July and August.”

 

After 10 races, Self sits 14th in the series’ standings. He carries an average finish of 18.1 entering Chicagoland.

 

Like last year, the Texas Department of Agriculture’s GO TEXAN program and AM Technical Solutions will also support Self in his 51st career start.

 

GO TEXAN represents Texas agri-business on state, national and international levels by building recognition with the GO TEXAN mark.

 

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 throughout the world.

 

Don’t mess with Texas, CForce Bottling Company, Flying Circle and Kreuz Market will serve as associate partners in the 11th race of the year.

 

In 50 NCWTS races, the 2015 ARCA Racing Series rookie of the year has one top-five (second at Daytona 2017) and three top-10 finishes. The Texan maintains an average finish of 18.7 during his three years of competition.

Austin Wayne Self seeking redemption in Gateway return

MADISON, Ill. – Charging to a top-15 finish this past weekend at Iowa Speedway, Austin Wayne Self and his Niece Motorsports team head to Gateway (Ill.) Motorsports Park hoping to turn up the heat and deliver a strong performance in Saturday night’s Villa Lighting delivers the Eaton 200.

 

Scoring his fourth top-20 finish in the last five NASCAR Camping World Truck Series (NCWTS) races, Self sees Saturday night’s race at Gateway as the perfect opportunity to maneuver his first top-10 run of the year in the No. 22 GO TEXAN | AM Technical Solutions Chevrolet Silverado.

 

“We’re closing on the end of this four-race stretch, and I really want to go out on a high mark this weekend at Gateway and next weekend at Chicagoland,” said Self, a native of Austin, Texas.

 

“The guys on our No. 22 Niece Motorsports team have worked diligently to put competitive race trucks on the track each week, and I want to show them my appreciation with a top-10 run that we all know we’re capable of.

 

“We’ve shown that we’ve had speed but for one reason or another, we’ve haven’t had the luck or breaks to put us inside the top-10 when that checkered flag waves. We showcased our capabilities again at Iowa, but came up a little short. This weekend at Gateway, I’m hoping everything (finally) comes together.”

 

This weekend at Gateway, the Truck Series will endure three practice sessions on Friday afternoon, with the intent to give the teams ample time to dial in their machines. For Self, he sees the extra practice session as a perfect opportunity to simulate what his truck will do in race conditions.

 

“That final practice session on Friday afternoon is close to when we’ll be racing on Saturday night, so we’ll plan to use most of that time to our advantage,” mentioned Self. “It’s going to be another hot weekend, and I think Gateway will be one of those extremely temperature sensitive tracks.

 

“That extra 55-minutes could also help us from a handling standpoint and inch us closer, not only for our race day setup, but a qualifying setup too. I learned here a couple years ago at Gateway that track position is so important – so we’ll keep that in mind too.

 

“One thing is for sure, we’re going to make it a fun weekend too.”

 

In the 22-year-old’s lone Truck Series start at the 1.25-mile oval, he finished 28th after being involved in an accident 42 laps from the finish.

 

“I learned a lot that night, but I believe I’m a better race car driver than I was in 2016. I’ve been fortunate enough to be around good people who believe in me and give me the equipment to do my job and prove that I’m a better driver.

 

“When it comes to Gateway, I feel like it’s a place that I’m owed some redemption. I hope that redemption comes with our GO TEXAN | AM Technical Solutions Chevrolet.”

 

After nine races, Self sits 13th in the series’ standings. He carries an average finish of 18.3 entering Gateway.

 

Like last year, the Texas Department of Agriculture’s GO TEXAN program and AM Technical Solutions will also support Self in his 50th career start.

Austin Wayne Self ready for Iowa Speedway return

NEWTON, Iowa – With another solid finish in the books last weekend at Texas Motor Speedway, Austin Wayne Self and his Niece Motorsports team are determined to keep their momentum charging forward heading into Saturday night’s M&M’s 200 presented by Casey’s General Store at Iowa Speedway.

 

Showcasing the speed and authority in his No. 22 Go Texan | AM Technical Solutions Chevrolet Silverado at Texas, Self saw a plausible top-10 finish diminish after another truck got loose while racing Self, cutting down a tire and sending the veteran NASCAR Camping World Truck Series driver to pit road.

 

Having to play-catchup from there, Self returned to the track to solider onto a 17th-place finish. Still annoyed with the Texas result, short track racing returns at the opportune time for the Austin, Texas driver.

 

“Even though we didn’t get the finish we wanted at Texas, I’m really proud of this Niece Motorsports team,” said Self. “We’re riding the strength of our performances, and not necessarily our finishes lately, because we’ve had speed in our trucks – just have encountered some bad luck.

 

“Now, it’s time for that luck to change this weekend at Iowa.”

 

Self will make his third start at the 0.875-mile short track this weekend. Last season in his second start of the year for Niece Motorsports, Self qualified 17th, but finished 23rd. In his Iowa Truck Series debut in 2016, he qualified 22nd, but raced to a competitive 16th-place finish.

 

While a 16th-place result was satisfactory for Self and his team two years ago, anything less than a top-10 performance this weekend would be disappointing.

 

“I really feel that we have the trucks capable of running inside the top-10,” noted Self. “Cody (Efaw, crew chief) and myself have raised our communication up a notch and I think everyone’s been able to see that over the past couple of races.

 

“We had the opportunity to work together during the Iowa race last year. While the finish wasn’t what we hoped, I think we have a good balance of what to expect this week. The benefit of working together last year is that Cody knows what I need in our No. 22 Go Texan | AM Technical Solutions Chevrolet Silverado to go fast.

 

“Even though the weather will change the setup in our truck throughout the day, we just need to stay balanced and focused, and I think qualifying and the race will fall into our hands. I can’t wait to get to Iowa.”

 

In addition to two NCWTS races at Iowa, the 22-year-old Self has two ARCA Racing Series presented by Menards starts at Iowa Speedway, with a best finish of sixth after starting ninth during the 2015 season.

 

After eight races, Self sits 14th in the series’ standings. He carries an average finish of 18.8 entering Iowa.

 

Like last year, the Texas Department of Agriculture’s Go Texan program and AM Technical Solutions will also support Self in his 49th career start.

Austin Wayne Self hopeful for big performance in Lone Star State

FORT WORTH, Texas – When it comes to Texas Motor Speedway, there isn’t a bigger race on the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series (NCWTS) schedule for veteran Austin Wayne Self (@AustinWSelf).

 

The driver of the No. 22 Go Texan | AM Technical Solutions Chevrolet Silverado is a native of Austin, Texas so the opportunity to race at home isn’t just a right, it’s a privilege.

 

Motivated after a two-week break from NCWTS competition, Self and his Niece Motorsports team trek to the fast 1.5-mile speedway looking for their first top-10 of 2018 in Friday night’s Rattlesnake 400.

 

Self returns to Texas eyeing redemption, after a top-10 finish was thwarted just a few laps from the finish a year ago. A cautiously-aggressive approach to the race paid off for the 22-year-old driver, finding himself shining under the lights in front of a hometown crowd.

 

While the night ended in the infield grass, crashed, Self is optimistic he can return to Texas with his Niece Motorsports team and simulate a similar performance in the eighth Truck Series race of the season.

 

“I always enjoy coming back to Texas,” said Self. “It’s my hometown track, so there’s always pressure to perform. It’s pressure that I don’t mind though. There’s a lot of people who have sacrificed a lot to give me a chance to race and competing at Texas is one of those opportunities to show them how grateful I am.”

 

With an assortment of Texas-based sponsors adorning his No. 22 Chevrolet Silverado, Self knows that running near the front, under the lights, in particular offers that shining opportunity to showcase them in a bigger platform in front of proud Texans.

 

“It’s amazing to see all the support at the track,” added Self. “Whether it’s in the grandstands, in the garage, in the infield or even on pit road, Texas always seems to go by pretty fast. We have a lot of guests. From family to friends, sponsors and more – it’s a race that brings our Niece Motorsports team closer together and that’s what NASCAR racing is all about.”

 

While the series’ most recent race at Charlotte Motor Speedway last month didn’t turn out as planned, Self says the confidence in his race truck, with the guidance and support of crew chief Cody Efaw, has never been stronger.

 

“Charlotte was a tough weekend for us,” recalled Self. “We had a tire failure in the first practice and we destroyed the truck. The Niece Motorsports team worked hard to get the backup truck out and we were making headway through the field before getting caught up in a mess near the finish.

 

“While the finish was tough, I was super encouraged by the performance. Texas is another mile-and-a-half, and I know that our team is capable of backing up what we started at Charlotte.”

 

For the first time this season, the teams in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series garage will endure extreme heat. With temperatures expected to reach 100 degrees on race day, Self says he’s ready to endure the heat.

 

“It’s going to be hot all week in Texas,” Self added. “It’s going to be hot during practice on Thursday and it looks to be even hotter on Friday during qualifying and the race. I can’t remember the last time it’s been this hot at the race track.

 

“It’s always warm at Texas and at certain places on the schedule, but this week it’s going to be hot. It’s going to make the track real slick and I think you can expect the heat to take a little bit of a toll on us drivers. We just must stay hydrated and stay cool when we can.

 

“It’s a night race at Texas. We’ll start the race during the day – but end under the lights. That’s going to be good because the temperature should go down. Although, I don’t think it will by much. We’re just going to have to let it play out and see what happens. We’re going to give it our all, I promise you that.”

 

Like last year, the Texas Department of Agriculture’s Go Texan program and AM Technical Solutions will also support Self in his 48th career start.

 

GO TEXAN represents Texas agri-business on state, national and international levels by building recognition with the GO TEXAN mark.

 

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 throughout the world.

 

Don’t mess with Texas, CForce Bottling Company, Flying Circle and Kreuz Markets will serve as associate partners in the eighth race of the year.

 

In 47 NCWTS races, the 2015 ARCA Racing Series rookie of the year has one top-five (second at Daytona 2017) and three top-10 finishes. The Texan maintains an average finish of 18.6 during his three years of competition.

Austin Wayne Self poised for strong run at Charlotte Motor Speedway

CONCORD, N.C. – On the heels of his best finish of the season, Austin Wayne Self (@AustinWSelf) and his Niece Motorsports team ride the momentum to the Queen City looking for their first top-10 finish of the season in Friday night’s North Carolina Education Lottery 200.

 

After finishing 15th at Dover International Speedway two weeks ago, the Austin, Texas native, with crew chief Cody Efaw, persevered in this past Friday night’s 37 Kind Days 250 to earn a 13th place finish. It was the team’s second consecutive top-15 finish under Efaw’s leadership.

 

With the No. 22 Don’t mess with Texas | AM Technical Solutions Chevrolet Silverado picking up the pace, Self, 22, returns to Charlotte on a mission.

 

“Charlotte was a race that I felt slipped out of our hands last year,” Self explained. “We had a good truck and I felt I drove one of my best races on a mile-and-a-half, but we came up a little short of a top-10 finish.

 

“This week, I’m heading back there confident in our truck and my ability, and I think it’s going to be another solid weekend for our Niece Motorsports team.”

 

Moving up four positions in the championship standings after maneuvering his fifth top-20 finish last weekend, Self believes that his team’s energy is contagious, and they will only continue to climb as the heart of the season approaches.

 

“Niece Motorsports is bringing some good race trucks to the track,” added Self. “Momentum is a huge part of success in racing, and that’s something we’ve been able to put together over the last month or so. My communication with Cody (Efaw) is strong and I think we’re showing that with our on-track product.”

 

To some, it’s not a surprise to see the chemistry working between Self and Efaw.

 

The two hardcore racers worked together for four races in 2017 – where their connection was seen almost immediately. Self says since Efaw took the reins at Martinsville Speedway in March, it feels like they’ve haven’t missed a beat.

 

“Cody is a born racer,” explained Self. “He gets it and the way I’m able to describe what our truck is doing, he’s able to complete the sentence before I finish it. That’s pretty stout. He takes his job very seriously and Charlotte is an important race to him, being a home game for him and the Niece Motorsports team.

 

“A top-10 finish is going to mean everything before we take a two-week break before heading to Texas Motor Speedway in June.”

 

Like last year, the Don’t mess with Texas campaign and AM Technical Solutions will also support Self in his 47th career start.

 

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.

 

Go Texan, CForce Bottling Company, Flying Circle and Kreuz Markets will serve as associate partners in the seventh race of the year.

 

In 46 NCWTS races, the 2015 ARCA Racing Series rookie of the year has one top-five (second at Daytona 2017) and three top-10 finishes. The Texan maintains an average finish of 18.6 during his three years of competition.

Austin Wayne Self seeks first top-10 of 2018 at Martinsville Speedway

MARTINSVILLE, Va. – With three straight top-20 finish in the books to open the 2018 NASCAR Camping World Truck Series (NCWTS) season, Austin Wayne Self and his Niece Motorsports team had to Martinsville (Va.) Speedway looking for their first top-10 of the year in Saturday afternoon’s Alpha Energy Resources 250.

Returning to the famed paperclip short track, the Austin, Texas native, has two prior starts at Martinsville, including a strong 15th-place showing in the spring of 2016.

Rejuvenated after a two-week break, Self is ready to get back down to business in the first short track race of the year.

“Martinsville is one of those places you either love or hate,” said Self who sits 18th in Truck Series points. “It’s not an easy place to navigate. You must hit your marks every single lap. Truth has usually been told though, if you keep your nose clean you’re going to find yourself in a good position to have a good finish.

“That’s our goal for Saturday afternoon.”

Knowing that track position is crucial at a place like Martinsville, Self expects he and crew chief Joey Cohen to have an emphasis on qualifying, something Self admits he’s struggled at in the past at Martinsville.

“I haven’t been the greatest qualifier at Martinsville, but that’s something I’m looking to change this weekend,” Self chuckled. “We have three practice sessions on Friday and I think that will help a bunch. If we can get ourselves in a good race pace trim, we can turn some of our attention towards qualifying. With the weather looking iffy this weekend – it’s important to know how balanced our truck will be with different setups.”

Announced last week, Kreuz Market will support the No. 22 Chevrolet in the fourth race of the season.

With its landmark servings offering sausage and BBQ, without sauce or forks, in a sprawling, rustic cafeteria-like setting, Kreuz Market is set to embark on its journey into NASCAR with Self, a Texas-based driver.

In addition to its laid-back country-like atmosphere, Kreuz Market also smokes and ships Texas barbecue brisket, ribs, sausage and pork, which Niece Motorsports will receive throughout the year to serve up at the track as the team’s pre-race meal.

“I am thrilled to be partnered with another proud Texas company,” added Self. “I’m excited to have a taste of home each weekend at the track, and there’s no doubt we’ll have some of the best eating of anyone in the garage thanks to Kreuz Market.”

Kreuz Market is equally excited to enter their first foray into NASCAR with Self.

“We are excited to join Austin Wayne Self and the NASCAR Don’t mess with Texas truck series team. It means a lot to all of us at Kreuz to join a team that has such strong Texas pride,” said Weston Black, catering manager for Kreuz Market.

“We are looking forward to sharing our original Kreuz Market barbecue with the team and spreading the message that anyone in the US can buy our authentic Texas Barbecue and have it shipped right to their doorstep year-round.”

Like last year, the Don’t mess with Texas campaign and AM Technical Solutions will also support Self in his 44th career start.

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.

About Kreuz Market:

When Charles Kreuz Sr. opened a grocery store in 1900, he started smoking meats and sausage in brick barbecue pits and selling it to his customers on butcher paper. That’s how they did it in the old country at German meat-markets and that’s how Kreuz does it today. New barbecue joints are popping up all the time—some with ribs drowned in sauce, others with new fangled commercial smokers.

You won’t find that stuff at Kreuz. They do it the old-fashioned way because there in the home of Texas barbecue, they know that the original way is still the best way.
