About Snyder Motorsports - Our History
Snyder Motorsports was the idea of Jeff Snyder. Jeff suggested going to racing school and in 2002 Snyder Motorsports competed in SCCA Club Racing in the Showroom Stock C (SSC) class using a pair of Dodge Neon ACRs. Jeff and his son Rick had great success in their first season, racking up 9 wins in 19 races and winning the SSC Regional Points Championship. In 2003, Snyder Motorsports replaced one of the Neons with an Improved Touring S (ITS) Porsche 944. In their second year, Snyder Motorsports won 11 of 27 races and added a second SSC Regional Points Championship.
For 2004, Snyder Motorsports added a third driver when Jeffs other son Stacey Snyder joined the team. As a result, Snyder Motorsports campaigned two 2004 Dodge SRT-4s in the Touring 2 (T2) and Improved Touring 'E' (ITE) classes and a 1984 Porsche 944 in the ITS class for the 2004 season. The team recorded 6 wins in 21 races and a Regional Points Championship in the T2 class.
In 2005, Snyder Motorsports moved up to the professional ranks of the SCCA Pro SPEED World Challenge. Snyder Motorsports campaigned a single Dodge SRT-4 in the Touring Car Series. After competing in ten of the eleven races, the team finished in 16th position overall and in 2nd in the Rookie of the Year points.
2006 brought about serious changes as Snyder Motorsports pulled out of professional racing and only competed in two SCCA Club races. Concentrating on instruction, driver Rick Snyder moved into a Group Leader role with the Rocky Mountain NASA as well as other local and national car clubs. He continues instructing today.
2008 brought additional change to Snyder Motorsports as we moved back into racing. We campaigned two Porsche 944s in the NASA 944-Spec class and a BMW M3 in the NASA Time Trial series. This was an exciting year as we worked with three rookie drivers looking to make their mark.
2009 and 2010 saw Snyder Motorsports continue racing in the 944-Spec class as well expanding into the German Touring Series "3" (GTS3) class, NASA endurance racing in the E0 class and NASA Time Trial series in the TTS class.
2011 was a slow year as Rick Snyder, John Clark and Gary Miller all stepped away from racing. Ashley carried forward in the 944-Spec class and won his first regional points championship in the class.
2012 saw Ashley win his second consecutive regional points championship in the 944-Spec class. Rick Snyder returned to the driver's seat in his new E36 BMW M3. After spending most of the year testing the car in the HPDE Group4/TT run group, Rick and Ashley continued their strong tradition of endurance racing by finishing 2nd overall and 1st in class in the season ending 3-Hour Enduro.
