Fielding the No. 13 Liberty Tax Ford F-150 for ThorSport Racing, Myatt Snider will round out a quartet of entries vying for victory as the 2018 NASCAR Camping World Truck Series season kicks off at Daytona International Speedway.
Previously competing in NASCAR’s Whelen All-American Series, CARS Late Model Stock Car Tour, ARCA Racing Series and part-time in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series, the 23-year-old Charlotte, North Carolina-native has accumulated two wins, 13 top-five and 26 top-10 finishes and three pole awards, including winning his debut race in the ARCA Racing Series at Toledo Speedway in 2016.
“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,” exclaimed an excited 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 Racing, echoed Myatt’s excitement saying, “He is an exceptional young man and talented driver. 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.”
Snider and ThorSport Racing’s NCWTS teams take the green flag for the NextEra Energy Resources 250 Friday, Feb. 16, broadcasting live at 7:30 p.m. ET on FOX Sports 1 (FS1) and the Motor Racing Network (MRN) from Daytona Beach, Florida.
