Myatt Snider – No. 31 TaxSlayer Chevrolet Camaro SS Preview- Bristol Motor Speedway
News and Notes:
– Practice; After technical inspection on Friday morning, Snider and the No. 31 TaxSlayer Chevrolet will hit the half-mile high banked concrete oval nicknamed “The Last Great Coliseum” at 2:35 PM ET on Friday afternoon for a brief 20-minute practice session. NXS practice will be split into two different groups, Snider is scheduled to be a part of the second group. Coverage of practice will air LIVE on the NBC Sports App.
– Starting Position; Directly after practice at 3:10 PM ET, Snider and the Jordan Anderson Racing (JAR) Bommarito Autosport team will line up to qualify for starting position in the Food City 300. In 2022, short-track qualifying would consist of a single round of single car qualifying for two laps. Snider will roll off 25th for his qualifying laps based on the performance-based matrix factoring owner points, driver points, race finish, and fastest lap of the previous week. With 41 cars entered, three cars will miss the race. Coverage of qualifying will also air LIVE on the NBC Sports App.
– Bristol Motor Speedway Stats; Friday’s NXS Food City 300 will mark Snider’s fourth NXS start at Bristol Motor Speedway (BMS). Snider’s NXS debut at the famous half-mile oval situated in the mountains of East Tennessee, would come in the Covid-19 scheduled event in June of 2020. Starting in the 22nd position, Snider would quickly work his way to the front on a track that has traditionally been hard to pass on. Making the car better on each pit stop Snider would work his way into the Top-5 where he would finish with a hard earned fifth-place finish. The return for Snider in the Fall did not fare like the Spring after starting in the 29th position an engine would expire on Lap-31 of 300 resulting in a 35th place finish.
The Food City 300 in the Fall of 2021, would see Snider have a good qualifying effort starting in the 17th spot and much like his first NXS race at Bristol would quickly move into the Top-10 and would work on making the car better with each pit stop. At the end of the 300-laps Snider would be credited with an eighth-place finish. In his three previous starts at Bristol, Snider holds an average finish of 16.0.
