For the first time in over 20 years the ARCA Racing Series presented by Menards invades the Fairgrounds Speedway in Nashville, Tenn. The series last raced the five-eighths-mile short track in 1992 with David Green winning the 200 lap event.

Austin Wayne Self, driver of the No. 98 AM Technical Solutions Ford Fusion is coming off of a season-best finish of fourth at Mobile International Speedway last month. The finish bounced him up into third place in ARCA championship points after two races.

“I really like Fairgrounds Speedway. It’s a racetrack that you have to search for a line a lot,” Self said afer the test. “It’s super unique and reminds me a lot of the old racetrack in San Antonio. I think we will have a good AM Technical Solutions Ford Fusion to work with when we show up Saturday for the race.”

2014 ARCA Racing Series champion and team owner Mason Mitchell has transitioned to the owner’s role in 2015, and is looking forward to seeing Self’s progress in the car this weekend.

“It’s really an honor for the series to be going back to the Fairgrounds Speedway the track has a lot of history throughout the years,” Mitchell said. “Our test went well with Austin Wayne Self, but there’s a lot of unknowns going into a race track that we haven’t raced at.  I think the No. 98 team will be in the hunt at the end — we just have to save our equipment. The fans are going to be in for a great show.”

MMM is no stranger to short tracks on the ARCA Racing Series schedule. In 11 short track starts the 2014 championship team has earned four top-fives, eight top-tens and two pole positions. The team has an average finish of 8.4.

MMM has also elected to bring a familiar chassis to FGS Saturday evening, chassis 589. Most recently Mason Mitchell raced this chassis at Mobile — finishing 19th after a mechanical failure. Chassis 589 has five starts and has a best finish of second three times.

The Troop Aid 200 will be available live Saturday at arcaracing.com at 8 p.m. CT via a pay-per-view format. The action starts with the Southern Super Series and the Federated Car Care 100 presented by Crane Cams & Crosley Brands, beginning at 6 p.m.
