Myatt Snider joins young guns Todd Gilliland, Harrison Burton as the latest additions to KBM's roster. They, along with team owner Kyle Busch, will share the same truck throughout the 2017 season. He will have more races than all the others with eight total, making his debut at Daytona in the Louisiana Hot Sauce Toyota Tundra. 

Other races planned for Sninder include both events at Texas Motor Speedway, the July race at Kentucky Speedway, the September race at Chicagoland Speedway, the September race Las Vegas Motor Speedway, the October race at Talladega Superspeedway, and the season finale at Homestead-Miami (Fla.) Speedway Nov. 17.

 

"I am so thankful to Kyle, Samantha and everyone at Toyota and TRD for this fantastic opportunity," Snider said in a release. "The chance to race in a Toyota with KBM equipment is something I've worked my whole career to have the opportunity to do. I cannot wait to learn from Kyle and my teammates. I want to soak up every bit of information I can. You can't do better than KBM in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series and to have Louisiana Hot Sauce on our truck only makes it better. I've been blessed with great equipment and people in my career. I'm so thankful to keep that going in 2017. I'm really excited about the races we are running. We will be racing at mile-and-a-half tracks or bigger. That will provide some great opportunities for me to learn and continually improve. I look forward to doing great things with the people at KBM."

Snider is the son of NBC Sports reporter and broadcaster Marty Snider. The 21-year-old, who turns 22 at the end of the year, has just one previous appearance in the CWTS. That came at Phoenix International Raceway this past season, finishing 17th for AM Racing.

Among Snider's growing list of accomplishments is winning in his ARCA debut at Toledo. 

"We've had an opportunity to see Myatt showcase his talent racing in the CARS Tour the last couple of years in Late Model stocks and then he really got off to a hot start on the national level when he won his ARCA debut," Busch said in a release.. "He continued to lead laps and have quality runs in ARCA during his limited schedule, so we feel like he is deserving of the opportunity to now move into one of NASCAR's top divisions and be capable of producing the same results for KBM and Louisiana Hot Sauce."
