Self on Racing at Kentucky: “I’ve always enjoyed racing at Kentucky, even though my finishes don’t show that,” said Self.

“Kentucky is a very weather sensitive track and even though it’s been repaved a couple years ago, I’ve heard the track is still getting rougher.  The rougher the track is, the better racing it can produce, but it also creates a challenge for us when it comes to handling.

“We’ll work through that though.  It’s a one-day show, so we need to make sure we have our No. 22 GO TEXAN | AM Technical Solutions Chevrolet Silverado dialed in as best as we can and then turn our concentration towards the race.

“It’s another event where we practice and qualify during the day and then race at night – so keeping up with the changes will be critical.”

Self at Kentucky: Self will make his third NASCAR Camping World Truck Series (NCWTS) start at Kentucky Speedway this Thursday.  Self’s best finish at the track is 22nd, which came in 2017.

Self also has two ARCA Racing Series starts at Kentucky Speedway, with his best finish of 11th coming in 2015.

Recapping Chicagoland: Self and the No. 22 team battled the handling and heat at Chicagoland Speedway, but ultimately came home with a 13th-place finish.

“We struggled a little bit with the truck, especially with the tightness in the center. However, we are working hard to get our No. 22 GO TEXAN | AM Technical Solutions Chevrolet where we want it to be.

“I’m still very pleased with our 13th-place finish and can’t thank my Niece Motorsports team enough for all their hard work.”
