Austin Wayne Self Pre-Race Quotes:
On Phoenix Raceway: “Statistically, Phoenix Raceway hasn’t been one of my better race tracks when it comes to finishing well. We’ve had some really solid runs with our No. 22 AM Technical Solutions | GO TEXAN Chevrolet Silverado, but for one reason or another – we just haven’t been able to get the finishes I feel like we deserved.
“Hopefully, we’ll be able to change that on Friday night. We’ve had really fast Chevrolet Silverados over the last month or so and I’d love to capitalize on that Friday night and give our AM Racing team some momentum heading into the offseason.”
On 2022 Season: “There is no doubt that we had our highs and lows throughout the 2022 NASCAR Camping World Truck Series season, but I am proud of my AM Racing team for standing tall through it all and continuing to put fast trucks on the race track.
“We have big things planned for our team on the horizon and I can’t wait for 2023.”
