“I think it will be a lot of fun to race in the NASCAR Whelen Euro Series. It will be my first ever chance to race in Europe and that’s not an opportunity you get very often. It is going to be an interesting change of pace and it is a fantastic opportunity to take on this challenge with a such a top-level team as Racing Engineering. I am really excited,” said the 24-year-old Charlotte, North Carolina native. “(NWES founders) Jerome & Anne Galpin and their team have put together a great series which goes to amazing tracks I have only seen as a very young Formula 1 fan, so excitement is the perfect word to describe what I’m feeling now.”
Snider will share the #48 Ford Mustang fielded by Racing Engineering with three-time NWES Champion Ander Vilarino in the team’s debut season in the NASCAR Whelen Euro Series. One of the most successful European teams in recent history, Racing Engineering was founded in 1999 by Alfonso de Orléans-Borbón and won 11 titles in eight years, including the Spanish Formula 3 and GT championships, the World Series title in 2002 and the GP2 drivers title in 2008 and 2013. Racing Engineering was GP2 vice-champion team twice in 2015 and 2016 and fielded cars for some of the most talented drivers in the world.
