Self on Racing at Charlotte: “Charlotte was a race that I felt slipped out of our hands last year,” said Self.  “We had a good truck and I felt I drove one of my best races on a mile-and-a-half, but we came up a little short of a top-10 finish.

“This week, I’m heading back there confident in our truck and my ability, and I think it’s going to be another solid weekend for our Niece Motorsports team.

“Niece Motorsports is bringing some good race trucks to the track.  Momentum is a huge part of success in racing, and that’s something we’ve been able to put together over the last month or so.  My communication with Cody (Efaw) is strong and I think we’re showing that with our on-track product.”

Self at Charlotte: Self will make his third NASCAR Camping World Truck Series start at Charlotte Motor Speedway on Friday night.  He looks to better his current-best finish at the 1.5-mile track; a 12th-place effort last season.

Recapping Kansas: Self and the No. 22 Don’t mess with Texas team battled hard all race long, overcoming handling issues and long green flag runs to earn a 13th-place finish under the lights at Kansas Speedway.

“We worked hard trying to get the truck where we wanted it,” said Self.  “We never gave up and we managed to take home a 13th-place finish.  I’m looking forward to getting back on track on Friday at Charlotte.”
