Yeah, I mean, you know, it’s the last lap and everybody’s trying their best to push as hard as possible. And, you know, I’m trying to keep as much momentum as I can get and so I felt a push and I started feeling the car goes right,Myatt Snider said.

I’m like, ‘Crap, I might be along for a ride here and sure enough, I was. I got turned around to the side and then I was facing backward and I started seeing the race track and I’m like, ‘Hmm, this is getting better as it goes,” Myatt Snider added.

“I think what happened is that the left rear started yawing towards the fence and then the fence caught it and that’s what started tearing everything up. And then I got drug into the grass from what I could tell,” says Myatt Snider.

Myatt Snider described the incident as a violent one as he saw sparks going everywhere moving in an unknown direction. Myatt Snider said he was trying to keep everything together during the crash adding he is happy about how it ended.

It was violent. Like I, I saw sparks kind of going everywhere and, you know, you don’t, you don’t know what’s going on. You just kind of know you’re going in some direction and it’s not the right one. So, I was just kind of holding on, kind of hunching over, keeping everything together as much as I could. So yeah, I can’t profess enough how glad it ended. I’m all good,” Myatt Snider described.
