Snyder Earns First Divisional Win of the Season

In the words of Austin Coil, "We finally figured out what was wrong with this car, and we ain't telling nobody." The Snyder Motorsports Race Team sponsored by Knoll Gas -- Torco Racing Fuels / Powersource Transportation had a breakthrough event at their home track in Indy last weekend. After struggling throughout the first half of the season, they decided to do some testing on the Thursday before the event. That testing paid off.

"It feels so good to get this car back in the winner's circle. We have been trying everything we can think of to get this car to run this year and we finally think we have figured out our issues. I can't say enough about this Team and the effort they have put forth to get us where we are today," said driver, Mick Snyder.

Not only did they win the event, but they had one of their most consistently quick weekends of the year. After qualifying #2 for the race with a 5.74 on a tricky track, they set low ET of each round of eliminations en route to the winner's circle. First round, Snyder ran a 5.70 during a bye run when his opponent was shut off at the line. During the second round, Snyder left first and never looked back running a 5.76 to earn the win and lane choice in the finals. When his opponent was unable to make the call in the finals, Snyder laid down a nice 5.75 pass to earn his first divisional win of the season.

"I really need to thank Evan and Skip for all the support they have given us this season. With Knoll Gas -- Torco Racing Fuels and Powersource Transportation behind us we have everything we need to come out here and race every weekend. And it was awesome to have my Knoll Gas -- Torco Racing Fuels teammate, Marty Thacker, in the winner's circle with me today. Hopefully, we will be able to keep this thing going in Columbus next weekend.
