SANDUSKY, Ohio – ThorSport Racing has announced that Myatt Snider will drive the No. 13 Tenda Ford F-150 this weekend at World Wide Technology Raceway in place of suspended driver Johnny Sauter.

Sauter was suspended for one NASCAR Gander Outdoors Truck Series race earlier this week by NASCAR following an on-track incident at Iowa Speedway that saw Sauter wreck Austin Hill during a caution period after Hill spun Sauter to bring out a caution.

With one start at World Wide Technology Raceway in the NASCAR Gander Outdoors Truck Series, Snider started the 2018 event 14th, where he raced to a fourth-place finish.

“We had one of our best finishes of the year last season at Gateway, and I can’t wait to see what we can do again this year with the No. 13 Tenda team and ThorSport Racing,” noted Snider. “I’m really thankful for Duke and Rhonda Thorson to give me the chance to step back into the truck and compete this weekend. I’m pumped for the race, and to work with many of my guys from last year on the No. 13 Ford Performance team.”

Snider has made two starts in the Truck Series this year, recording a season-best finish, sixth, at Martinsville Speedway. He’s racing full-time this year in the NASCAR Whelen Euro Series.

While Sauter won’t be racing this weekend at World Wide Technology Raceway, he has confirmed via Twitter that he’ll be driving his super late model during the Dick Trickle 99 at Dells Raceway Park in Wisconsin Dells, Wis.
