Myatt Snider Completes ThorSport’s 2018 Truck Series Lineup

By David Morgan, NASCAR Editor

ThorSport Racing has completed their four-truck lineup in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series as they announced the addition of Myatt Snider to drive their No. 13 entry, joining teammates Matt Crafton, Ben Rhodes, and Grant Enfinger for the 2018 campaign.

Snider, who raced part-time for Kyle Busch Motorsports last season, scored one top-five finish, three top-10 finishes, and led 26 laps in his eight starts, with his best finish of third coming at Talladega last October. He also ran one Truck Series race for KBM in 2015.

The 23-year old has also raced in the ARCA Racing Series, bringing home one win (Toledo – 2016), three top-five finishes, six top-10 finishes, and 68 laps led in 10 starts between 2016 and 2017.

“To be a part of a team with a winning pedigree like Duke and Rhonda [Thorson] have built over the years is an absolute blessing,” said Snider. “After getting to know the organization over the past month, I’m even more excited to get to Daytona, and to join Thorsport in 2018. I’m really looking forward to working with my new teammates, as there is a lot of knowledge to tap into going into my rookie season. Switching to a new manufacturer, it seems things have come full-circle, with Ford being a part of some of the biggest highlights in my racing career, including my ARCA win at Toledo.”

David Pepper, general manager at ThorSport, echoed Snider’s sentiments, expressing his excitement at bringing the young gun on board to complete their stable.

“He is an exceptional young man and talented driver,” Pepper said. “With him, I feel we’ve really rounded out our four-truck lineup and this, to me, is the strongest driver lineup we’ve ever had. We’re going to be very competitive this season, starting with Daytona.”

The 2018 Truck Series season will kick off in a little more than a week at Daytona International Speedway with the running of the NextEra Energy Resources 250 on Friday, February 16.
