A Look Back: On May 24th, Self exited the race early and eventually was credit with a 21st place finish at Charlotte Motor Speedway after a right-rear shock mount broke, accompanied with a flat tire. Self suffered an accident in qualifying earlier that day forcing his Sinclair Oil team to a backup car for the race.

A Look Ahead: This Friday, Self will visit the two-mile Michigan International Speedway in Brooklyn, Michigan, for the first time in his career. The event will also be Self’s first time competing on a two-mile track.

Self on Michigan: “I think more than anything I’m just excited to have a chance at redemption. Charlotte was tough to swallow, because the day was ruined due to an error that was completely on me. We had a great racecar, I just got greedy and made a mistake before we ever even got to take the green flag for the race. It was embarrassing to be honest, and it hurts when one of my 10 starts feels wasted like that. We’ve got that same car here at Michigan this week, and with how fast it was in practice at Charlotte, I have a lot of optimism bringing it here. I’m excited for another new track, and one that’s really fast, and wide. I’m hoping we can rebound and put the Sinclair Oil/U.S. Turf Equipment Toyota back up front where it started out the year.”
