Austin Wayne Self Pre-Race Quotes:
On Bristol Motor Speedway: “I always enjoy going to Bristol Motor Speedway. It’s a very fast short track with tight racing and a lot of fenders banging.
“I’d love nothing more than go to Bristol this week and capture our best track finish there and give us some momentum towards the rest of the season.
“Bristol is a concrete track so your setup and feel is going to be different compared to other short tracks like Richmond or Lucas Oil Indianapolis Raceway Park.
“We just have to stay ahead of the track changes and hopefully we will have a good balance on our No. 22 AM Technical Solutions | GO TEXAN Chevrolet Silverado RST and we can contend for a top-10 finish or better this weekend.”
On 2022 Season: “I think the AM Racing team has shown incredible strength at times during the 2022 NASCAR Camping World Truck Series season. We started off the year with some solid results but went through a difficult stretch.
“Recently, I feel like we have picked up where we were at the beginning of the season and I think over the final six races of the year we can continue to showcase the speed in our trucks and deliver some finishes that will turn heads.”
