Austin Wayne Self Pre-Race Quotes:
On Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course: “I am glad to be back behind the wheel of the No. 20 AM Technical Solutions | GO TEXAN Chevrolet Silverado RST this weekend at Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course. The last month has been very busy for me and while I hated not being able to race, I am thankful for the priceless time I spent with my wife and daughter.
“I am, however, focused on getting back behind the wheel this weekend and duplicating Max’s awesome finish from Nashville Superspeedway in our No. 22 AM Technical Solutions | GO TEXAN Chevrolet Silverado RST.”
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.
“I think the past two races, however, we have showcased that AM Racing has competitive equipment and we have what it takes to run inside the top-five and top-10 consistently. We just need the breaks to fall our way.
“Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course though is another chance for our team to prove what we have to work with and I do not plan to let them down.”
