Self on Racing at Michigan: “I’ve always enjoyed racing at Michigan,” said Self. “It’s a big track where speed is at a premium. Handling is just as critical with a good motor. The track was repaved several years ago, and the preferred lines are slowing widening out.
“You can use the straightaway speeds to get yourself in a position to make that pass. It can be sketchy on restarts – but that makes it exciting for the fans. For us, it’s like a mini-restrictor plate race and that will provide excitement and drama from the drop of the green flag to the checkered flag.”
Self at Michigan: Self has two NASCAR Camping World Truck Series (NCWTS) starts at Michigan International Speedway to his credit. His best finish of 15th came last season.
In addition to his two NCWTS starts at the track, Self also has two ARCA Racing Series starts at Michigan International Speedway, both of which resulted in top-10 finishes. His best finish of 3rd came in 2015.
Recapping Pocono: Self and the No. 22 team earned an 18th-place finish at Pocono Raceway.
“I’m happy to bring home the truck in one piece, even though we struggled trying to get the speed we wanted out of our No. 22 Chevrolet Silverado.
“However, we will build on this and move forward and vow to be stronger at Michigan.”
