LINCOLN, Nebr. (December 11, 2022) - Stu Snyder has announced his retirement from full-time competition at the end of 2023. To close out his career, 'Superman' will take on a nearly 50-race schedule, competing primarily throughout the Midwest.
A tentative schedule has been released by SLS Motorsports with 47 events slated for the '23 season. Snyder will compete in five different states - Nebraska, Iowa, Kansas, Missouri, and South Dakota. Three National attempts, American Sprint Car Series appearances and some double-duty events are also slated on the schedule released.
With the release of the stacked schedule also comes the announcement for Stu Snyder's veer from full-time competition at the end of the year. In 2024, Stu will move toward competing at specials only, on a 'when-able' basis.
Snyder's son, Kruz, will take over the reigns and begin his career in motorsports at the beginning of '24. Stu's plans are to center his focus on getting Kruz going and dabble his own competition back into sprint cars here and there as time allows.
"I've had a very successful career in sprint car racing," Snyder expressed. "I've met a lot of great people along the way, have had some of the best partners, fans, and crew that the industry has to offer, and have also experienced the highs and lows of what motorsports has to offer. It's time for me to step away from full-time competition and allow my son the chance to thrive in motorsports, given that's what he wants to do moving forward."
Snyder has more than 70 feature wins, assembling 29 of those victories from 2020 - 2022. He has accumulated four championships and a handful of Most Popular Driver & Best Appearing Car honors.
