A Look Back: Last time out, Self drove the No. 9 branded with Sinclair Oil Corporation colors to an eighth-place finish at Colorado National Speedway. Self ran in the top-five the whole night, until contact with another driver saw him spin with less than 30 laps to go. Self restarted the race 15th, and managed to pull off the top-ten finish in the last 10 laps.

A Look Ahead: Self now moves on to the sole road-course event on his 2017 schedule this weekend at the 1.99-mile, 12-turn Sonoma Raceway. The last time Self competed at Sonoma was in 2013, when he led the most laps, and finished third.

Self on Sonoma: “I can’t wait to get back to Sonoma! It’s always been one of my favorite tracks, and used to be the race I looked forward to the most on the K&N West schedule. I haven’t had the chance to actually road race myself much the last few years, but I’ve stayed very involved with it through coaching competitors in the Trans Am series. I’m hoping I can get the feel for road racing back quickly, and use some of the things I work on with my clients to help this weekend..”
