AM Racing, which fields the No. 22 Chevrolet Silverado for Austin Wayne Self, will skip this weekend’s NASCAR Camping World Truck Series DoorDash 250 at Sonoma Raceway.

According to a statement from the team, the decision has been made, “Out of an abundance of caution,” as Self and his wife Jennifer are expecting the arrival of their first child this week.

Here is the complete statement from AM Racing:

“AM Racing has elected not to participate in Saturday’s DoorDash 50 at Sonoma Raceway as driver Austin Wayne Self and wife Jennifer are expecting the arrival of their first child later this week. Out of an abundance of caution, the team has elected to forgo the NASCRA Camping World Truck Series race, so Austin can make his family top priority.”

Self, 26, has not missed a NASCAR Camping World Truck Series event since the fifth race of the 2019 season.

Through 11 races this season, the driver of the No. 22 truck sits 19th in the NCWTS championship standings and he has recorded two top-10 finishes. Self has a career-best finish of second, which he achieved in the season-opening event at Daytona International Speedway back in 2017.
