Myatt M. Snider[1] (born December 30, 1994) is an American professional stock car racing driver. He is the son of NASCAR on NBC pit reporter Marty Snider. He competes full-time in the NASCAR Xfinity Series, driving the No. 2 Chevrolet Camaro for Richard Childress Racing. Snider is colloquially known as Sauce Boi, a moniker he picked up in 2018 based on his Louisiana Hot Sauce sponsorship.[2]

Racing career[edit]

ARCA Menards Series[edit]

Driving the No. 22 Cunningham Motorsports car on a part-time basis, Snider won his first start in the ARCA Racing Series, leading 35 laps en route to victory at Toledo Speedway in 2016.[3] He also captured the pole at Michigan International Speedway and recorded two other top-five finishes in nine starts.[4] In 2019, Snider joined with Venturini Motorsports for a one-off deal at Michigan.[5]

Gander Outdoors Truck Series[edit]

Snider made his NASCAR national series debut in 2016, driving the No. 22 truck for AM Racing.[6] He started 19th and finished on the lead lap in 17th.[7] On December 23, 2016, it was announced that Snider would pilot the No. 51 Kyle Busch Motorsports truck for eight races in the 2017 season, including the season-opening NextEra Energy Resources 250 at Daytona International Speedway.[8] Snider moved to ThorSport Racing to drive the team's No. 13 truck to drive full-time in 2018, replacing Cody Coughlin.[9][10] He finished ninth in points and won Truck Series Rookie of the Year.[11]

In 2019, Snider moved to ThorSport's No. 27 to drive part-time that year.[12] Later in the season, he replaced Johnny Sauter in the team's No. 13 for the CarShield 200 at World Wide Technology Raceway at Gateway after Sauter was suspended.[13]

Whelen Euro Series[edit]

On April 9, 2019, Snider announced he would compete full-time in the NASCAR Whelen Euro Series Elite 2 Division, driving the No. 48 Ford Mustang for Racing Engineering.[14] Snider was originally spurred on by a chance to join fellow American Bobby Labonte's team, but that initial opportunity did not work out.[15]

Xfinity Series[edit]

On November 21, 2019, it was announced that Snider would drive select races for Richard Childress Racing in the NASCAR Xfinity Series in 2020, starting with the season opener at Daytona.[16] His 2020 schedule was increased to 20 races in January when he joined RSS Racing on a limited basis.[17]

In his series debut at Daytona, he won the pole and led 23 laps in the opening stage, but was involved in a crash shortly before the end of the second stage.[18][19] After running the first eight races, Snider committed to a full-time 2020 schedule, contesting all but three races for RSS; he ran the Pocono Raceway, Martinsville Speedway, and Phoenix Raceway rounds with RCR.[20]

Other racing[edit]

In March 2019, Snider competed in the Michelin Pilot Challenge sports car race at Sebring International Raceway, driving a Ford for Multimatic Motorsports alongside ThorSport Racing teammates Matt Crafton, Grant Enfinger, and Ben Rhodes.[21]

Personal life[edit]

Myatt is the son of NBC pit reporter Marty Snider, he also currently attends UNC Charlotte.[22] He intends to gain a pilot's license down the road.[2]
