A Look Back: On May 13, Self finished fifth at the half-mile Spokane County Raceway for his second consecutive top-five of the season.

A Look Ahead: Self continues his season in the No. 9 Sunrise Ford Fusion when the K&N Pro Series West visits San Bernardino, CA, at Orange Show Speedway. Self has one previous start at the quarter-mile oval in a NASCAR Whelen All American Series Late Model when he finished second place in 2011.

Self on Orange Show: “Orange Show is a very unique place. It’s tiny, being only a quarter mile. Definitely a track where you have to be on your toes, be ready for some aggressive racing, and be hyper-focused on hitting the correct line and not making any mistakes, otherwise you’re likely going to lose a lot of positions. We got some testing time there a few weeks ago which was really helpful as far as learning the track, and getting more acclimated with the team and car. I’m hoping we can use what we learned to be competitive and fight with the cars that have been running in the top-three all year.”
