Snyder Debuts on Top

For the first Top Sportsman race of 2018, Mick Snyder and the Evolution Race Development Team traveled just an hour from the new shop in Fort Worth to the Texas Motorplex in Ennis, TX for a fast Mid-West Pro Mod Elite 16. The 6-time Season Champs and their unconventional Supercharged, ComSyncEFI Top Sportsman combination gained a great deal of exposure on and off the track. Off the track, Snyder was engaged with fans, suppliers and customers all weekend. While on the track, the Snyder Motorsports Team qualified at the top of the pack with only a few shots on the new ride. However, the team fell short during the second round of eliminations on Saturday with an oil leak.

“Overall, it was a great weekend for the ERD Team. While we are still learning a lot from the new-to-us Camaro, we were able to get Raegie to go straight and put the ole girl at the top of the qualifying sheet. We went down the track every attempt and gained a ton of data with the extra qualifying shots. This new Snyder Motorsports Test Vehicle is going to be fast,” Snyder smiled. “In a strange turn of events with a rerun, we were able to turn the win light on twice in the first round, before loosing on a bye run with an oil leak after the burnout. I have never lost on a bye that I can remember, but we split an oil line, not at the crimp but in the middle of the line, and were shut off. In racing there are a million ways to loose, I think I just found the millionth and one. If something odd like that is going to happen, I’m glad it happened there. We still have a shiny, unwrecked and fast hot rod to go play with again before we call a close to our 2018 season.”

During qualifying, the Snyder Motorsports – Evolution Race Development Supercharged, ComSync EFI Camaro ran 3.872 seconds at 189.87 miles per hour to put them on the top of the qualifying sheet. Snyder took the win in the opening round of competition with a 3.904 at 189.10 and 3.919 at 188.70. In the second round, Snyder had an oil line split and was shut off.

“I feel very blessed. God has been good to us. The move to Texas has proved to be a good one. It’s November and we are still racing. The new car is running great and looking great. I get to race with my kids, my wife and my Mom and Dad still. We had a late start to the season, but I feel we are sitting in a better place for a great 2019 season,” Snyder concluded.

The Snyder Motorsports Race Team would like to thank their associate sponsors Lencodrive Racing Transmissions, ComSyncEFI Engine Fuel Ignition Management, Coan Converters, JE Pistons, NGK Spark Plugs, Lucas Oil, Flatout Gaskets, R&R Racing Products, Aeromotive Fuel Systems, VP Racing Fuels, Hot Rod Processing, Mick’s Performance, Snyder Auto, Goodson Tools & Supplies and Safety-Kleen for their continued support over the years.

Snyder Debuts New Camaro

Mick Snyder and the Evolution Race Development team roll into the Texas Motorplex this weekend for the Mid-West Pro Mod’s Elite 16. The famed facility is just an hour from Snyder Motorsports’ new location in Fort Worth, Texas. The Indiana native is ready to get the season started at their new local track with their new 1968 Snyder Motorsports – ERD Supercharged, ComSync EFI Camaro. The 6-time Season Champs are getting a late start to the 2018 season, but the big move to Texas and finishing a new car took a little longer than expected. The Elite 16 at the Texas Motorplex in Ennis, TX will run from November 1st through the 3rd.

“We are excited to finally get the new girl out and get my 26th season of racing started, moving Snyder Motorsports to Texas and finishing the new-to-us car took a lot longer than I expected. We have been at the track the past five weekends either testing, watching it rain or delivering parts. So far the new girl is being a little stubborn, but I’m sure she will come around. We get eight qualifiers for this deal, so I hope by the time eliminations roll around we have a full pull under our belts,” Snyder laughed. “Raegie, our new Camaro, is an older McAmis chassis that we basically restored from the ground up. There isn’t much left from the car of old. She has a Snyder Motorsports Hemi, Snyder 3-Speed Lencodrive and Snyder-ized Coan Converter as well as our ComSyncEFI. We are looking forward to a great weekend with a lot of passes that we can use to build on this winter testing and into next season. It feels good to have the Snyder Motorsports Test Vehicle back out!”

The first of 8 rounds of qualifying (yes we said eight) for the Midwest Pro Mod Elite 16 begins on Thursday at 4:00 PM. Qualifying continues on Friday and Saturday with six more chances to make the 32-car Top Sportsman field. Final eliminations will begin on Saturday at 11:30 AM.

Snyder Preparing Evolution Race Development 1968 Camaro for 2018 Debut

The chance to try something new has always caught Mick Snyder’s attention. For 2018, that means driving a new car. Snyder, who has been a champion in Alcohol Funny Car, Pro Extreme and Top Sportsman, will debut a new-to-him Evolution Race Development ‘68 Camaro for the upcoming Top Sportsman season. After excelling in the orange ’63 Corvette still owned by Jason Scruggs for the past eight years, Snyder is now eager for the challenge in a new car.

“It’s kind of cool having something different,” Snyder said. “I’m always excited about new stuff.”

From transition from Alcohol Funny Car to Pro Extreme to Top Sportsman, Snyder has never been afraid of something different. He won championships in Alcohol Funny Car and ADRL’s Pro Extreme, adding a Division 3 Top Sportsman championship in 2016.

To pull off the latest title, Snyder and his Snyder Motorsports team made a major transition, moving to an electronic fuel injection (EFI) Roots blower. That EFI set-up will stay in the new Camaro and remains an innovation that has been a difference-maker both on and off the track.

“If you’re not staying on the cutting edge, you’re falling behind,” Snyder said. “These are new and exciting things, and if they work well for us, it’s a bonus for our business. The EFI deal has definitely been exciting.

“But probably the coolest part has been we’ve been successful in dragsters, Funny Cars, door cars, with automatics, clutches, EFI. That’s been a lot of fun.”

Snyder will aim to continue that impressive run with a Camaro that will look quite a bit different than the orange-dominant Corvette. This car will be predominately gray with an blue stripe, with Snyder doing most of the designing and shying away from all-orange simply because there’s “too many orange cars out there now.”

The path to getting the car was also unconventional. Snyder was dropping off motors to a customer in Texas, made an offer on the car and came back to his DeMotte, Ind., home with a new car that was previously owned and tuned by the legendary Howard Moon. “It was a pretty good deal from my standpoint,” Snyder said with a laugh.

The real fun for Snyder has followed, with working rigorously on making their customary major changes to a car. The Camaro isn’t brand new and does have a proven track record, giving Snyder added belief there won’t be much of a transition next season.

“I love that part, taking the car apart, fixing everything and fixing it all up,” Snyder said. “There’s always something new and it’s fun to try and fix that. You never know how temperamental a new car will be, but this is not really a new car. It’s a proven car and we’re excited to see what happens.”

Snyder had planned to increase his schedule a bit from 2017, hoping to make more races in 2018, however an exciting opportunity and move to Fort Worth, Texas with his Snyder Motorsports business in tow put a major delay in the Camaro’s debut. With the late start and the move to warmer weather, Snyder plans to get the new ride ironed out, hit as many races as possible and test a lot over the winter. 

“It should be an exciting 2019 for the Snyder Motorsports-ERD Team,” Snyder claims.

Wherever he ends up, the challenge of debuting a new car won’t be a daunting one for a driver whose sole intent is to enjoy himself.

“I don’t really want to run a single schedule,” Snyder said. “We want to have fun and run a bunch of different organizations. It’s fun to race and that’s what we’re out there for.”
