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.
âItâs hard to put into words how exciting this year is going to be,â noted Snider. âGoing 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. Itâs a great way to run my first Xfinity Series season, and I canât wait to kick it off at Daytona with RCR and Fontana with RSS Racing.â
Superior Essex will join RSS Racing through a business-to-business partnership with Myatt Snider Racing. With itâs focus on growing his experience as he continues to rise through the ranks of NASCAR.
In 2020, Snider will compete in approximately 20 events in the NXS beginning with the season-opener at Daytona International Speedway next month with RCR.
âHaving a driver of Myattâs caliber and talent in our stable this year is awesome,â emphasized Kevin Starland, RSS Racingâs Competition Director. âWe feel this will be a great opportunity to show how our entire RSS organization can perform.â
âWe also think this will be a great connection point between us and RCR for the whole season, competing with ECR Engines under the hood. Weâre thrilled to have Myatt join the team, and honestly wish he was competing with us full time. Weâre very much looking forward to our first race with Myatt at Fontana.â

experience from 2019 will be beneficial.
âOne 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 â 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!â
