Pre-race quotes from Austin Wayne Self:

On the dirt track at Bristol Motor Speedway: “I enjoy competing on dirt. I have been racing my modified dirt for the past few months to help me better prepare for the race on Saturday night.

“Hopefully we can duplicate or improve on our performance from last March and get our best result of the season.”

In the 2022 Season: “We had a great first three races of the 2022 Truck Series season, but we were unlucky in the last two races at COTA and Martinsville. Our team is much better than our final results and we need to bounce back if we want to have any chance of making the playoffs this summer.

“We will work hard and the Bristol Dirt Track race may be the best medicine to reinvigorate our season.”
