Austin Wayne Self quotes before the race:
At the Kansas Speedway: “I’ve had a lot of experience in Kansas, probably the most of any 1.5 mile track we drive in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series. I think that has significant value as we approach this weekend’s race.
“We’re bringing our Atlanta truck and he was very quick there and I’m confident he can do the same thing on Saturday night and put our team back on the map. We really need a good run and I think Kansas can provide a welcome cure for our AM Racing team.”
In the 2022 season: “We had great first three races of the 2022 Truck Series season but were unlucky in the last four races at COTA, Martinsville, Bristol Dirt and even Darlington last weekend. The level of frustration has certainly gone down but we’re trying not to go under as a team because we realize we’re putting fast race trucks out on the track.
“We will continue to fight to get our season back on track and hope that by doing so we have paid our debt of bad luck for the rest of the year.”
