A Look Back: Self fought in the top-three for the majority of the night before a flat left-rear tire forced him to pit road with 20 laps remaining at Lucas Oil Raceway. Though the No. 25 Sinclair Oil crew was able to make a quick tire swap and get Self back on track, the race ran caution-free until the finish which saw Self cross the line in eighth position, two laps down.

A Look Ahead: The ARCA Menards series travels to Kentucky Speedway this weekend for the tours first intermediate-track race of 2020, and first race at the 1.5-mile D-shaped oval since 2017. The race replaces the originally scheduled event at Charlotte Motor Speedway. Self has one previous start at Kentucky Speedway in the NASCAR Xfinity series in 2015.

Self on Kentucky: “I’m very excited to be getting back to an intermediate track. It’s no secret that enjoy the 1.5-mile tracks, and Kentucky is especially unique. It’s a very challenging track with probably the slickest surface of any of the intermediates. We’ll be racing in the middle of the afternoon, so that’ll only add to that challenge. Regardless, I think I’ll be applying a lot of what I learned there in the Xfinity car a few years ago to try and have a solid run.
