2018 NASCAR Gander RV & Outdoors Truck Series Rookie of the Year, Myatt Snider has expanded his 2020 NXS schedule to add races with RSS Racing.

Snider will split his seat time this season between the No. 21 TaxSlayer Chevrolet Camaro for Richard Childress Racing (RCR) and the No. 93 Superior Essex Chevrolet Camaro for RSS Racing.

“It’s hard to put into words how exciting this year is going to be,” noted Snider. “Going back and forth between the two teams is bound to keep me busy, but the opportunity to work with both organizations is going to be a huge learning experience. It’s a great way to run my first Xfinity Series season, and I can’t wait to kick it off at Daytona with RCR and Fontana with RSS Racing.”

Superior Essex will join RSS Racing through a business-to-business partnership with Myatt Snider Racing. With it’s focus on growing his experience as he continues to rise through the ranks of NASCAR.

“Having a driver of Myatt’s caliber and talent in our stable this year is awesome,” emphasized Kevin Starland, RSS Racing’s Competition Director. “We feel this will be a great opportunity to show how our entire RSS organization can perform.”

“We also think this will be a great connection point between us and RCR for the whole season, competing with ECR Engines under the hood. We’re thrilled to have Myatt join the team, and honestly wish he was competing with us full time. We’re very much looking forward to our first race with Myatt at Fontana.”

expansion of Snider’s schedule to include races with both RCR and RSS Racing
will give him additional seat time to develop his skills, enabling both teams
to be competitive this season.

Snider is
schedule to run all five NXS road course races where his NASCAR Whelen Euro
experience from 2019 will be beneficial.

“One of the highlights on my schedule with RSS Racing is the ability to run all of the road courses this year. Competing in the Euro Series last year really helped prepare me for something like this, including running some of the most prestigious road courses in the world – Brands Hatch, Valencia and Hockenheim to name a few. I really feel prepared, and my lifelong dream of racing at Watkins Glen will come to fruition. It should be a fun season!”

The NXS season-opener NASCAR Racing Experience 300 will take place on Saturday February 15 live on FS1 at 2:30 p.m. ET from Daytona International Speedway.
