ThorSport Racing announced Wednesday it has signed Myatt Snider to drive the No. 13 Liberty Tax Ford F-150 in the 2018 Camping World Truck Series.
“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,” Snider said in a media release. “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.”
Even though he’s only 23 years old, Snider has a lengthy racing resume. He comes to ThorSport having previously raced in NASCAR’s Whelen All-American Series, the CARS Late Model Stock Car Tour, the ARCA Racing Series and part-time previously in the Camping World Truck Series.
The Charlotte, North Carolina native has amassed two wins, 13 top-five, 26 top-10 finishes and three pole positions across those series, including winning his debut race in the ARCA series at Toledo (Ohio) speedway in 2016.
ThorSport recently changed from a long-time affiliation with Toyota to Ford for all four of its trucks.
“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,” Snider said. “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.”
ThorSport Racing GM David Pepper said of Snider: “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 makes his ThorSport debut on February 16 in the Truck Series’ season-opening NextEra Energy Resources 250 at Daytona International Speedway.
