MOORESVILLE, N.C. – NASCAR Camping World Truck Series team AM Racing and ARCA Racing Series championship winning team Win-Tron Racing have joined forces for the remainder of the 2016 season and for the full 2017 season.
The newly formed partnership leverages the cost efficiencies associated with shared assets and resources while exploiting the knowledge and experience of its two principle members, Kevin Cywinski and Tim Self. The joint effort will deliver cost efficient quality racing programs to selected drivers in both the Truck Series and the ARCA Racing Series.
“Kevin has a proven track record in the racing business as evidenced by his multiple wins and Championships,” said AM Racing owner Tim Self. “I bring efficient business processes and cost models along with a sales and marketing component that coalesces the Driver/Team/Sponsorship/Activation Model and delivers the best value for all partners.”
As the owner of Central Texas Speedway located in Kyle, Texas, Self has been involved in the motorsports industry for over fifteen years. Since 2013, Tim Self has acquired a, now successful, three-eighths-mile asphalt track and started a new NASCAR Camping World Truck Series team with his son, Austin Wayne Self, as the driver.
“Tim’s experience in business administration is outstanding albeit apparent, but his ability to build high value partnerships and bring new partners to the table is very exciting,” said Win-Tron Racing owner Kevin Cywinski. “The foundation and team he has assembled in 2016 for their first, seven months is incredible, given that they started this season from scratch in December. Just look at all of the great brands they have been able to bring onboard. We are going to do some really great things together, both on and off the track, before the season is over.”
The co-branded operation will be based out of Win-Tron’s existing facility in Mooresville, N.C., in the motorsports complex. In addition to providing full time racing programs, the consolidated entity will provide race teams support services such as Logistics, Transporation, Set Up and Pull Down.
Win-Tron is currently assembling a two car program for the 2017 ARCA Racing Series season. The No. 32 Toyota will have one full-time driver and the No. 33 Toyota will multiple developmental drivers behind the wheel. In addition, AM Racing will field the No. 22 Toyota Tundra full-time in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series, with a second truck that will run a partial season.
