“I’m really excited about being able to join a championship winning team, this is a great opportunity. I like the feel at the MMM shop. The morale at the shop is different than any other team, everyone works hard and gives it one hundred percent because everyone there wants it, and wants to win. I had a really strong 2014 season but I feel more confident in our 2015 effort, I feel like we can focus on winning races and a championship. This is a game changing opportunity and I’m just ready to get down to Daytona and start racing again.”- Austin Wayne Self
This is Austin Wayne Self’s year. The green flag is out and Self has already taken the reins. In December Austin moved his life from the heart of Texas to Race City USA and became a full time resident in the state of North Carolina. This level of commitment shows just how bad Austin Wayne Self wants to pursue the ARCA racing championship in 2015. Self has dedicated his days to long shop hours and race studies. This is what it takes to be a champion and Self is on the road, fighting for his dreams.
“Coming off such a great 2014, with Austin and his team winning the ARCA Rookie of the Year Award, our entire company is really excited for the next season to start up. We’re very proud to be a part of that success, and to know that we’re supporting a driver and program that values hard work and strong values.”
“Austin’s move to MMM, whose previous driver won the 2014 ARCA Championship, just puts us in an even better position to reach our 2015 goals and compete for a championship. We look forward to continuing to be actively involved because we value the brand exposure and differentiation this sponsorship imparts,” says Kelly McAndrew, CEO of AM Technical Solutions.
Making the move to MMM was filled with optimism and desire. The lessons Self learned in 2014 will contribute to his run for a championship in 2015. Earning the rookie of the year title was just the start, it sparked the flame that will light the fire and there’s no turning back.
“I am really excited to welcome Austin Wayne Self to MMM for the 2015 ARCA Racing Season. I have nothing but confidence in Austin’s ability to win races and compete for the championship. He showed great promise during his 2014 Rookie campaign. This program was started last year to be a driver development team and I am proud to say this is the next step for our team becoming the premier driver development program in the ARCA Racing Series.” – Mason Mitchell of MMM
