Chatting with Myatt Snider…

“Everyone on the No. 13 Louisiana Hot Sauce Ford F-150 crew at ThorSport Racing have been working hard to prepare for Martinsville this weekend. It’s a track I love racing at, and have for quite a few years, and I think we’ll have good speed when we get there. The biggest thing we have to focus on is the race being shorter by 50 laps than in the spring – that will change up our race strategy, especially the last stage. I’m really confident in our ability going there this weekend, and the potential to compete for a win.”
