Mooresville, NC – Starting with the ARCA/CRA Super Series SpeedFest at Watermelon Capital Speedway this month and ending with a Pro Late Model Race at Central Texas Speedway in November, Self will be running a full 20 race ARCA Season with as many Super Late Model and Pro Late Model Races as he can manage. As of now Austin Wayne Self has 35 races booked for 2015.
“We had a bunch of fun running our 1st Super Late Model Race with DLP Motorsports at Southern National at the end of last season and think we just might have a competitive SLM program. We will race as many of the ARCA/CRA Super Series races as our schedule allows and will run the Pro Late Model at all the SLM companion races. Six races at Central Texas Speedway will make up the balance of our Pro Late Model races. We are all business with the ARCA series and it is our primary focus, though these Late Model races give us the chance to have a little more fun and gain valuable seat time. Terry and Colt James along with Matt Maynard will make up our 100% Texan crew. David Pletcher and DLP Motorsports of Mooresville, NC will be providing the race cars.” – Austin Wayne Self
|“Really excited to work with Austin some this year. He has come a long way in the 5 years I have known him. We had a good first showing at southern national at the end of last season. Hopefully that can carry over to this year and give Austin a shot to win some of these races.” –Late Model Crew Chief, Colt James
Austin Wayne Self’s priority ride this year is the 98 car out of Mason Mitchell Motorsports and the ARCA Series is his #1 focus. “I can’t wait to run in the ARCA series this season, I feel like we did a lot of learning last year and it’s going to pay off ten fold this year!”– Austin Wayne Self
“Im ecstatic to have Austin driving for “MMM” this upcoming season. Austin has a lot of ability and more confidence than ever stepping into this position. As Austin plans to compete in other races other than ARCA, that will make him that much better behind the wheel. There is no replacement for ‘Seat Time'”. –Owner of Mason Mitchell Motorsports, Mason Mitchell
After winning Rookie of the Year for the 2014 ARCA Racing Series and finishing 6th in championship points Austin feels ready and prepared to tackle the loaded schedule in 2015.
“The late model races give me another opportunity to continue learning, gain seat time, and of course win. Late model racing is a different kind of racing it’s where I started so it’s where I come from, I can race without the pressure of points which gives our team a great advantage. I can try out strategies that are a little risky and race hard without worrying about the points repercussions, it makes me a better driver and makes us a fiercely competitive team.”- Austin Wayne Self
If it proves that the team has the juice to run up front, AWS will also add the 2015 Snowball Derby to his schedule making it a stacked year of all out racing. The AWS Racing effort will kickoff at the ARCA/CRA Speedfest Jan 24th and 25th. “I am ready to get back in the car and behind the wheel, it’s definitely time to start this season!” –Austin Wayne Self
