Austin Wayne Self, the driver of the No. 22 Chevrolet Silverado, will once again be competing in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series (Truck Series) this year. Self is supported by AM Racing out of Statesville, N.C., and our company will continue to serve as a sponsor.
The 2022 Truck Series season marks Self’s seventh year on tour. Self is coming off a successful 2021 campaign that saw him earn a career-high four top-10 finishes. While he is still considered a young gun on the NASCAR circuit, Self carries a long list of racing accomplishments under his belt. He will look to find even greater success this season.

The NextEra Energy 250 will be the first of 23 scheduled racing events this season. The season wraps up in November with the conclusion of the Truck Series Playoffs in Avondale, Arizona.
