Austin Wayne Self Pre-Race Quotes:
On Richmond Raceway: “I always look forward to competing at Richmond. It has relatively been a good track for us and I believe we can continue that pace on Saturday night.
“Richmond has shown that it can be a strategy track, so you must be aware – especially if you have a late race caution. Tires can be a huge difference and passing is premium.
“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.”
