Snyder Looking to Double Up in Joliet

The Snyder Motorsports Race Team sponsored by Powersource Transportation will head to Joliet, Illinois this weekend where they will compete in both the Torco Racing Fuels Nationals and the Jeg's All-Star event. They are coming off a good weekend in Norwalk, Ohio where they put together some impressive runs and made it to the semi-finals before the event was eventually postponed due to rain.

"We are really excited to get back out there. This will be our first national of the year and with all the cars coming in from across the country it looks like it is going to be a really tough field. This is going to be the third year we get to represent Division 3 in the All-Stars and the past couple years we haven't had the best luck. Hopefully, this will be our year. We really have a great team and it would be awesome for Division 3 to be able to win the championship," said the 26 year old driver, Mick Snyder.

The Team, based about an hour and a half away from the track in DeMotte, Indiana, has had success here before, earning wins on both the National and Divisional levels.

"We have learned so much in the past couple races about the car and the set up. We still have a long way to go, but we are moving in the right direction. Skip and some of the other people from Powersource are going to come out this weekend to watch us and we will also have friends and family from the area on the grounds. The car has been running good so far this year so hopefully we will be able to put it all together and celebrate in the winner's circle twice with all of them this weekend."

Qualifying for the event will begin on Friday with runs at 12:30 PM and 4:30 PM. On Saturday, at 10:30 AM the Team will have their final qualifying run for the Torco Racing Fuels Nationals while they run first round of the Jeg's All-Star event. Eliminations for that event will continue at 2:30 PM and the final will be at 5 PM. Eliminations for the National event will begin on Sunday morning and continue throughout the day.
