About Snyder Motorsports

Snyder Motorsports is all about friends and family. What started as a way for father and son to spend time together has turned into a passion for the sport for the entire family and a lot of our friends too. Over the years we've realized that it's fun to race against friends and even better when your friends are part of the team. We specialize in finding new friends we meet at the track and providing assistance in their journey to becoming a racing driver, including: technical/build support, driver coaching and career planning. In addition, many of the current team member's wives are an active part of the team and all actively participate in several HPDE events each year.
