Self on Racing at Phoenix: “Even though we haven’t had the results we were hoping for in the past at Phoenix, I’m hoping we can change our luck with a strong finish on Friday night,” said Self. “It’s hard to believe that there are just two races left in the year – but I feel like they are two races that we can go out and compete well and end our year on a high note.
“My crew chief Arthur Haire and I really have been working well together over the past couple months and I think that shows in our consistency. I appreciate his hard work, and all of the Niece team and we’ll go into the final two races with a positive outlook and hope that mindset pays off with strong results on the track.”
Self at Phoenix: Friday night’s race at ISM Raceway will mark Self’s third NASCAR Camping World Truck Series (NCWTS) start at the one-mile oval.
Recapping Texas: Self and the No. 22 team battled hard all night at Texas Motor Speedway to earn a 16th-place finish.
“That was not the finish we were expecting, but I was happy to see everyone from Sorghum come support me and the No. 22 team. We had a crazy night with that tire compound. We thought maybe we could make the truck better throughout the race but struggled a little bit and then ended up a half-lap short on fuel.
“Despite our ups and downs, I’m thankful for the Texans fans and everyone who came to support us, and we’ll get focused on the last two races of 2018.”
