MOORESVILLE, N.C. – AM Racing has announced the formation of a NASCAR Camping World Truck Series team.
Led by owner Tim Self, AM Racing will field the No. 22 Toyota in the Camping World Truck Series for the full 2016 campaign beginning at Daytona Int’l Speedway in February. Self is the father of Austin Wayne Self, who finished second in the 2015 ARCA Racing Series standings.
“This is an extremely interesting and exciting project for us and all of our partners,” said Self. “We will be working hard to establish AM Racing as a leader in the NASCAR Truck Series and add an energizing dynamic to the brands of our partners. I have a vision of how I want to build this race program and all of the pieces are coming together pretty quick. We will be well prepared for the season when we show up in Daytona. We are committed to one full time truck already and expect to announce a second one in the near future.”
AM Racing will field Toyota Tundras in the 2016 season having partnered with Toyota Racing Development (TRD). The team has also entered into an agreement with championship winning Triad Racing Technologies as their engine supplier.
“We are grateful to have Toyota as our principal racing technology partner,” added Self. “Direct access to Triad Racing Technologies and Toyota Racing Development products and services sharply ramps our performance curve. Integration of AMTS Engineering and project tools into our program model will hopefully give us a performance advantage both on and off the race track.”
Self, a successful entrepreneur, founded AM Technical Solutions in 1994 to provide Engineering and other Technical Services to advanced technology Industries including Semiconductor and Life Sciences. Mr. Self’s technology industry experience spans 25 years, and he has extensive expertise in process systems and project management. He has published a number of articles on the design and installation of process systems and has held memberships in the Institute of Environmental Sciences, the International Society of Pharmaceutical Engineers and the American Society of Mechanical Engineers. Tim has a Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering from Purdue University and owns Central Texas Speedway in Kyle, Texas.
“We have developed highly efficient project delivery models from many years of experience and expect to bring effective operational Solutions to the racing industry,” said Self.
AM Racing will be making a driver and sponsor announcements in the very near future.
