In only his second NASCAR Camping World Truck Series (NCWTS) race of the 2017 season, Myatt Snider finished 16th after being involved in a late-race incident in Friday’s Winstaronlinegaming.com at Texas Motor Speedway.
First Stage Recap:
- Snider started his No. 51 Louisiana Hot Sauce Toyota Tundra 13th in Friday’s 167-lap race. The 22-year-old used the First Stage of the race to learn how his Tundra handled on the 1.5-mile track. After surviving a string of cautions, Snider finished the First Stage 12th.
Second Stage Recap:
- Snider took the green flag for the Second Stage with four fresh tires on his Toyota Tundra. He restarted the race 14th and stayed around that position throughout the stage. When the caution flag waved to end the Second Stage, Snider was scored in the 13th position.
Third Stage Recap:
- After making a trip to pit road for two right-side tires, Snider started the final stage of the race from the second position. On Lap 131 the No. 51 Louisiana Hot Sauce Toyota Tundra spun on the track, bringing out the caution. Snider made a trip to pit road for four new tires and to assess the slight damage on his Tundra from the incident. With newer tires than the rest of the field, Snider continued to fight for position on the track throughout the race. With only seven laps remaining, Snider was involved in an incident on track that ended his day a few laps early. Snider and the No. 51 team are scored as finishing the race 16th.
Talk about you race…
“We had a really good Louisiana Hot Sauce Toyota Tundra today at Texas. We had been really competitive all race and for the amount of diversity we had, we were doing really well. We fought all the way to the end. We were coming up ninth on the restart, gaining spots, but had a little bit of bad luck on the restart. We were in the wrong place at the wrong time and slid up into the wall. I am really proud of my guys, they put in a lot of hard work and it showed off just didn’t have the results to show it.”
