Austin Wayne Self Pre-Race Quotes:
On Las Vegas Motor Speedway: “I’m looking forward to Friday night’s race. We had a good start to the season with a strong top-15 finish at Daytona and we are returning to the track that brought our most recent top-10 finish as a team.
“I’ve always liked Las Vegas and the racing it provides. We are confident that we will be able to unload on Friday and have a strong practice and qualifying session that will allow us to contend for our first top-10 finish of the season with our No. 22 AM Technical Solutions | JB Henderson Construction Chevrolet Silverado RST.”
On Daytona International Speedway: “We had a strong showing in our first race of the 2022 NASCAR Camping World Truck Series season. I’m proud of everyone on this AM Racing team. Ryan (Salomon, crew chief) did a great job building this brand-new truck. It was fast in single-truck runs and in the draft.
“I would have liked to have started the year off with a top-10 finish, but we’ll take this and focus forward on Las Vegas.”
On 2022 Season Outlook: “I really think we impressed a lot of people with our consistency last year. We were very solid and ended the year with the most top-10 finishes in our team’s history. Our success was because of the hard work of everyone on this AM Racing team.
“Even though we didn’t end the 2021 season on a high note, our team was extremely motivated to get back to the shop and start working on 2022. Without question, I think we can not only keep up the consistency but collect even more top-10 finishes in 2022.”
