Justin Snyder was a proud retired combat veteran of the U.S. Army, having fought in Afghanistan in 2010 and 201. He will forever be remembered as a devout race fan having pursued his passion for the sport by moving to Central Pennsylvania with a goal to make his mark on the racing world.
Unfortunately, his life was cut short earlier this year but family, friends and now, Susquehanna Speedway will keep his memory alive.
According to Derek Snyder, Justin had one life lesson to proclaim, “It’s not about how much money you have in this world, but the friends and family you make along the way. Do the best you can with everything you have” and that’s exactly how he lived each day of his life.
The event will be the fifth in the BAPS series that has seen three different winners in the events completed. Greg Hodnett, Lance Dewease and Danny Dietrich have all won BAPS events this season with one event being lost to the weather.
Joining the 410 Sprints on August 21st will be the PASS/IMCA 305 Sprints.
