(Mooresville, N.C. October 14, 2015-) 2014 Scott Rookie of The Year Austin Wayne Self will complete his second full season in the ARCA Racing Series presented by Menards Friday evening in the S’loonshine 98.9 at the Kansas Speedway.
Self has shown steadily improvement in 2015, including capturing first career ARCA win in June at the famous Winchester Speedway.
Self, driver of the No. 98 AM Technical Solutions Chevrolet for Mason Mitchell Motorsports (MMM) enters the finale sitting third in ARCA championship points. The Austin, Texas native sits 60 points behind second place Josh Williams, with a solid performance the 19-year-old could finish as high as second in points.
“We’ve had a lot of ups and downs in 2015,” Self stated. “We had a lot of bad luck after Winchester that set us back in the points a little bit. I would love nothing more than to finish the season in victory lane for AMTS, Pirate Energy and MMM. They have all stuck with me all season long and they all deserve another trip to victory lane.”
“I really enjoy racing at Kansas, it’s my favorite 1.5 mile track that we race at. Last year I was battling for the lead and unfortunately we got caught up in an incident.”
Self will have plenty of fans cheering him on Friday evening. He will have over 30 representatives from AMTS in attendance for the final race of the 2015 season.
“We are excited about the race at Kansas Speedway and are hopeful to seeing the AM Technical Solutions car being in Victory Lane,” Tim Glasson SVP of Corporate Development for AMTS stated.
“We have several business associates coming to the race for a networking event and are looking for a great showing. We are proud to sponsor Austin and are excited about what the future holds for him.”
