After a great season of racing in Europe this past year, I’m excited to be back home and moving up to the NASCAR Xfinity Series.

“I’m also happy TaxSlayer has returned for another year to support my racing career,” continued Snider. “I’m honored to be a part of bringing them back to the Xfinity Series. TaxSlayer has been a loyal partner of mine, and I can’t wait to see what we can build together moving forward. I know the season just ended, but 2020 is shaping up to be an excellent year. I’m just ready for Daytona to get here as soon as possible!”

In addition to competing in the NASCAR Whelen Euro Series, The Charlotte, N.C., native also made select NASCAR Gander RV & Outdoors Truck Series starts this year and is a former race winner in the ARCA Menards Series, scoring a victory at Toledo Speedway in 2016 in his first ARCA start.

“We’re proud to be joining forces with Myatt and TaxSlayer during the 2020 season,” said Richard Childress, chairman and CEO of Richard Childress Racing. “Both Myatt and TaxSlayer are family-focused, with Myatt’s family being involved in racing and TaxSlayer being a family-owned tax and financial technology company. Those values fit perfectly with ours, and I think will help guide all of us to on and off-track success next season.”
