Myatt Snider, driver of the No. 2 TaxSlayer Chevrolet Camaro, is set to compete in his first full-time season for Richard Childress Racing in the NASCAR Xfinity Series under the leadership of crew chief, Andy Street, in 2021.
Snider competed in a partial schedule for Richard Childress Racing in 2020, scoring two top-five and three top-10 finishes behind the wheel of the No. 21 TaxSlayer Chevrolet. In his first ever Xfinity Series start, Snider captured the pole award at the World Center of Racing, Daytona International Speedway.
Prior to joining RCR, Snider expanded his skill set in 2019 by competing in the NASCAR Euro Series, racing at historic venues such as Hockenheim in Germany and Brands Hatch in the United Kingdom. Snider finished fifth in the 2019 NASCAR Euro Series championship standings.
Prior to his venture overseas, Snider captured NASCAR Truck Series Rookie of the Year honors in 2018. The Charlotte, North Carolina native, collected three top-five and eight top-10 finishes in the 2018 season while driving for Thorsport Racing.
Snider is no stranger to success in the late model ranks either, winning prestigious events such as the Myrtle Beach 400 and the inaugural US Short Track Nationals at Bristol Motor Speedway. In 2016, Snider scored top-10 finishes in every CARS Tour late model stock car event and finished runner-up in the season standings, narrowly missing out on winning the championship by three points. That same year, Snider joined an elite group of drivers to win in their first ever ARCA series start, when he won at Toledo Speedway.
Snider expressed an interest in racing at a young age. At age 10, he began racing in Bandolero Cars. He quickly moved up to Legends cars, winning several big races, including the National Triple Crown and the National Championship race, as well as multiple track championships at the highly competitive Charlotte Motor Speedway, Concord Motorsports Park, and Atlanta Motor Speedway.
Andy Street will serve as the crew chief for Myatt Snider and the No. 2 TaxSlayer team for Richard Childress Racing in the 2021 NASCAR Xfinity Series season. Street, who was recently promoted to the crew chief position in the 2020 season, earned five top-five and 15 top-10 finishes, as well as one pole award with four different drivers rotating in and out of the No. 21 Chevrolet for Richard Childress Racing.
Street joined Richard Childress Racing in 2003 as a design and test engineer. Since then, the Kernersville, North Carolina native, has served RCR in a variety of positions including team engineer and design engineer specializing in chassis and suspension systems. Street has also played a key role in the team’s R&D program, helping to elevate the entire organization’s competition.
Street also played a vital role as a team engineer within RCR’s Cup Series program, helping deliver success across the board. He most notably worked with Cup Series stars, Kevin Harvick and Clint Bowyer, to win a combined 10 races.
Street took a one-year hiatus from NASCAR, where he served as crew chief to Tanner Gray’s 2018 NHRA Pro Stock Championship run. Upon winning the NHRA Championship, Street promptly returned to RCR. The 2021 season will mark Street’s 17th season with the historic Welcome-based organization.
