“We haven’t even turned the page to the 2018 season yet, but I’m overjoyed to have the opportunity to once again compete for a championship and represent some great marketing partners.”

Austin Wayne Self sets sights on strong superspeedway return with Niece Motorsports

TALLADEGA, Ala. – Ever since Austin Wayne Self (@AustinWSelf) earned a career-best second place finish in February’s NextEra Energy Resources 250 at Daytona (Fla.) International Speedway, he has been patiently waiting for the return of Saturday afternoon’s fred’s 250 powered by Coca-Cola for an opportunity to make restrictor plate magic eventuate again.

 

At Daytona, Self found himself a victim in an array of multi-truck accidents which made his AM Racing prepared Toyota Tundra look more like something out of Bristol Motor Speedway’s rough and tumble half-mile oval than a smooth and breathtaking superspeedway oval.

 

Even with an array of damage, Self nestled his way through a crazy final lap to come within inches of earning his first career NASCAR Camping World Truck Series victory. Even though the Austin, Texas native had to settle for second when it was all said and done, Self has been waiting for the chance to do it again.

 

“I’ve become a fan of restrictor plate racing,” said Self. “It’s a great opportunity for us – working on an admirable budget to have the capabilities of running with some of the top fleet organizations of the sport.”

 

“We did what we had to do at Daytona. We avoided the chaos for the most part and put ourselves in position when it counted. We need to do the same at Talladega this week.”

 

For the 19th race of the Truck Series season, Self will reunite with NIECE Motorsports and drive the No. 45 Snap Track Toyota in his second career NCWTS start at the 2.66-mile superspeedway.

 

Self has drove for the newly founded Truck Series team in two occasions this season earlier in the year at Kansas Speedway and Iowa Speedway respectively. In their debut, the team negotiated a hard fought and respected 15th place finish.

 

With an identical truck to his Daytona vehicle, Self is determined to bring NIECE Motorsports to the front and deliver their first top-10 finish.

 

“I’m appreciative for the chance to work with Cody (Efaw) and the whole crew from NIECE Motorsports again,” offered Self. “I felt in the two races we ran together, we showed a lot of promise and ability.”

 

“Talladega is going to be completely different to a place like Kansas or Iowa, but I think we easily know what we want to do. For us, it’s just a matter of getting through the madness you come to expect with plate racing and hope for the best.”

Of course, Self enters Talladega already on the heels of being a part of a winning team.

 

Last Friday afternoon at Charlotte (N.C.) Motor Speedway, Self’s girlfriend Jennifer Anderson won the Better Half Dash charity race on the quarter-mile of the track’s 1.5-mile surface.

 

Self as her spotter guided Anderson through a series of late-race restarts which ultimately allowed her to swipe the lead from Paige Keselowski, wife of NASCAR Monster Energy Cup Series driver Brad Keselowski for the trophy and champagne celebration.

 

She also collected a $10,000 check which she donated to the Hermie and Elliott Sadler Charitable Foundation.

 

“Jennifer did an amazing job in the Better Half Dash,” offered Self. “She was incredibly smooth and fast with her finesse and I think she really surprised a lot of people. Her brother (Jordan) and I race every week in the Truck Series, but it was an incredible feeling to be on the same side of the fence cheering on someone we care a lot about. She carried the AM Racing banner and did it well!”

 

“Now, it’s my turn to win,” Self said with a chuckle.”

 

In addition to Snap Track, B&D Industries Inc., Superior Essex, Accu-Tech, AM Technical Solutions and Don’t Mess with Texas will serve as an associate marketing partner for Self’s 36th career NCWTS race.

 

In 13 races this season driving for AM Racing, Martins Motorsports and Niece Motorsports, Self earned a career-best second place performance in the season-opening NextEra Energy Resources 250 at Daytona (Fla.) International Speedway and earned an additional top-10 at Canadian Tire Motorsport Park, both finishes driving for AM Racing. Overall, Self has earned one top-five, two top-10, seven top-15 and 10 top-20 finishes respectively.

 

The fred’s 250 powered by Coca-Cola (94 laps / 250.04 miles) is the 19th of 23 NASCAR Camping World Truck Series races on the 2017 schedule. Practice begins on Fri., Oct. 13 from 12:00 a.m. – 12:55 a.m., with a final practice session is set for 2:00 p.m. – 2:55 p.m. Qualifying is set for race day, Oct. 14 beginning at 10:30 a.m. The 32-truck field will take the green flag shortly after 1:00 p.m. with live coverage on FOX, the Motor Racing Network (Radio) and SiriusXM NASCAR Radio (Satellite Radio, Channel 90). All times are Eastern (ET).

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.

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.
