Austin Wayne Self Pre-Race Quotes:
On Talladega Superspeedway: “I always look forward to the superspeedway races with my AM Racing team. They have been working hard on this No. 22 AM Technical Solutions | GO TEXAN Chevrolet Silverado RST for months hoping it will be fast enough to make us a viable threat for the race.
“I don’t know if we will get the opportunity to qualify or not on Friday with the unpredictability of the weather. Wherever we start though, it will be our focus to get us to the front, stay out of trouble and find us being in contention when it matters most.”
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 three races of the year we can continue to showcase the speed in our trucks and deliver some finishes that will turn heads.”
