AUSTIN – Agriculture Commissioner Sid Miller today announced the Texas Department of Agriculture (TDA) and its GO TEXAN program have joined forces with AM Racing for the 2016 Camping World Truck Series season. As a GO TEXAN member, AM Racing and NASCAR driver Austin Wayne Self will promote the GO TEXAN program and the best of Texas.

“We’re so excited for our GO TEXAN program to partner with AM Racing to spread the word about Texas agriculture and the many wonderful products that are made right here in the Lone Star State,” Commissioner Miller said. “GO TEXAN and AM Racing both have roots that run deep in Texas, so it was a natural fit for GO TEXAN to hop on board with AM Racing to promote the best of Texas and the many businesses that call our great state home. Texans have an incredible sense of pride for our state and our heritage, and I’m excited for NASCAR and AM Racing fans all across the country to discover why they should GO TEXAN.”

GO TEXAN launched in 1999 and promotes the products, culture and communities that call Texas home. Through GO TEXAN, TDA promotes the best of Texas-grown and Texas-made goods to consumers around the world. As a GO TEXAN member, AM Racing will display the GO TEXAN mark on its trucks and race gear. Through the partnership with AM Racing, GO TEXAN will reach loyal NASCAR fans who are looking for the best of Texas and to explore Texas agriculture.

AM Racing is a Texas-based company, owned by Texans and featuring a native-Texan driver. 2016 marks Self’s rookie year in the NASCAR Camping World Series. Self will be driving a Toyota Tundra with the 2016 body style that looks just like the ones made right here in San Antonio.

“I’m excited and thankful to have the Texas Department of Agriculture’s GO TEXAN campaign on board our No. 22 Toyota Tundra this season and know they’ll be a valuable member of the AM Racing family,” Self said. “I’m a big supporter of Texas-made products and believe strong teamwork drives success, and that’s what GO TEXAN represents. I look forward to working with them in 2016.”

The GO TEXAN mark will be displayed at the track and during televised coverage of the 2016 NASCAR Camping World Truck Series on FOX Sports 1. To learn more about GO TEXAN and find Texas-made goods near you, visit gotexan.org, and to learn more about AM Racing and Self, visit www.AWSRacing.com.
