CONCORD, N.C. – Former ARCA Menards Series winner Myatt Snider will make his first series start in nearly two years when he joins Venturini Motorsports for Friday’s VizCom 200 at Michigan Int’l Speedway.

Last year’s NASCAR Gander Outdoors Truck Series rookie of the year, Snider currently competes full time in the NASCAR Whelen Euro Series ELITE 2 Division.

Snider, 24, will inherit the seat of VMS’ owner’s championship-leading No. 20 Cometic Toyota when he makes his second career start at Michigan. In his only other Michigan appearance in 2016, Snider started from the pole position.

Snider becomes the fourth driver to pilot VMS’ No. 20 in 2019, joining Chandler Smith, Harrison Burton and Brandon Lynn.

“I’m glad we could put this deal late in the game so I could make a return to the two-mile superspeedway,” said Snider. “Michigan is one of the toughest tracks on the ARCA circuit, but that’s what makes it so fun. I’m really excited for the weekend.”

The son of NASCAR on NBC pit reporter Marty Snider, Myatt Snider has made 10 career ARCA starts, earning three top-five and six top-10 finishes during that tenure.

Snider’s lone series win came at Toledo Speedway in 2016.

VMS has recorded three victories at Michigan since 2010, with drivers Mikey Kile (2010), Brennan Poole (2013) and Austin Theriault (2014). Team co-owner Bill Venturini made his first of seven Monster Energy NASCAR Cup starts at Michigan in 1989.
