Snider was raised in High Point, NC, where at the age of 10 he was introduced to racing by his cousin and occasional Sprint Cup Series driver Jay Hedgcock. He remembers spending time with Hedgcock, Jeff Burton, Kyle Petty and Phil Parsons during his summers. "I would hang out in the garage, hand them wrenches and generally just get in the way," Snider said. "I remember hanging around from the time I was 10 to the time I was about fifteen years old. I would follow those guys around to all the races I could – I think that's when I really fell in love with racing."
