MOORESVILLE, N.C. – Austin Wayne Self will join Niece Motorsports to contest the full NASCAR Camping World Truck Series schedule next year.

“I am very humbled and thankful for this opportunity to drive for Niece Motorsports for 2018,” said Self, who scored a career-best second-place finish Truck Series opener at Daytona Int’l Speedway in February.

Self ran nearly the full NASCAR Camping World Truck Series schedule in 2016, mostly for a team fielded by his father, Tim Self. This year he has competed in 15 events, including three races aboard the Niece Motorsports No. 45.

“I’ve been fortunate to run several races for the organization this season and I’m fired up to think what we accomplish in 23 races next season.”


Marketing partners and a crew chief for Self will be named at a later date.

“I’m incredibly proud of what our team has accomplished this season,” said team owner Al Niece.  “We have assembled a great team and accomplished a lot this year.

“At the beginning of the year we set out to run a few races, and ended up going to the track almost every weekend.  We are thrilled to have Austin join the fold next year at Niece Motorsports and I look forward to seeing what we can accomplish.”
