Bristol Motor Speedway Race Quote:

“We’ve had a long break and it’s now time to get back to work.  I’m really looking forward to getting back in the seat and on the road with my AM Technical Solutions Toyota team.  We’ve made a lot of positive gains the last couple races.  I’m optimistic this trend will continue at Bristol.  The time off served us well.  The guys in the shop have done a great job all around. We’re definitely getting better.  This will be my first start at Bristol.  It’s a fast half mile with lots of opportunity for trouble.  The key for us this week will be patience – staying up on the wheel for 200-laps and making smart decisions.” said Austin “The No. 22 team will have a big challenge this week at Bristol, and the AMTS team will be providing our complete support. We are especially excited to see other Texas based companies supporting our Texan driver. Thank you to Yeti Coolers for the awesome gear!” says Dan Codi, CEO of AM Technical Solutions.
