AM Racing is an American professional stock car racing team that currently competes in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series. The team, owned by the Self family of Central Texas, fielded Toyota Tundras full-time for Austin Wayne Self. Operations of the team's No. 22 truck were taken over by Win-Tron Racing in August 2016, though Tim Self retained his ownership stake in the truck.

Truck No. 22 history

In December 2015, it was announced that AM Racing would enter one truck in the Camping World Truck Series field, the No. 22 Toyota Tundra full-time for Austin Wayne Self. The team's first race was the season opener at Daytona, where Self qualified the truck 19th and finished in that same position, one lap down. In the second race at Atlanta, Self qualified twentieth and finished sixteenth. Self failed to qualify for the third race at Martinsville, but raced with the No. 44 after Tommy Joe Martins crashed his only truck in qualifying and had no backup. Self had variable runs throughout the first half of the season until he broke through for his first top ten, a ninth at the Aspen Dental Eldora Dirt Derby.

The team's operations were taken over by Win-Tron Racing after twelve races. The Self family retained ownership stake in the team.

After the merger with Win-Tron, performance remained nearly the same, with Austin Wayne Self turning in runs from the teens to twenties. At Martinsville, the team replaced Self with Justin Fontaine, who would be making his Truck debut. Fontaine qualified on owner points in 29th and moved up three places during the race to finish 26th. Self then took over the truck for the Striping Technology 350, finishing 22nd. For the Phoenix race, Self was again swapped out, this time for the son of NASCAR on NBC broadcaster Marty Snider, Myatt Snider. Snider qualified 19th and finshed 17th. Self closed out the season at Homestead-Miami Speedway, finishing 25th. The No. 22 truck finshed 22nd in owner points in its debut season.

For the 2017 season, AM Racing announced a partnership with Joe Gibbs Racing for engine power. On February 10, 2017, it was announced that J. J. Yeley would drive the No. 22 Legrand Tundra at the season opener at Daytona, while Self would drive the No. 32 truck.

Truck No. 32 history

AM Racing added this second truck to field in 2017, being Self while Yeley is in the No. 22. Self would finish his career best finish, 2nd, after avoiding the last crash.
