An opportunity of a lifetime comes to Rising Sun, Maryland native Steven Snyder Jr, as he becomes the newest KKM Giveback Classic champion at the annual event held at Port City Raceway in Tulsa, Oklahoma.

The non-wing outlaw 600's took the track last Thursday, October 21, 2021 and raced the finale on Saturday, October 23rd after qualifying in the later part of the week. A late night feature after many hours worth of track prep gave a hooked up track to all 24 feature starters. With a 14th starting spot, Snyder persevered throughout all 67 laps finding the fastest way around the track. His Hyper X7 Chassis, powered by TRA-CO Racing Engines/EVO+ Fuel Injection worked the bottom skillfully to eventually propel him to his first Midwest 600 Sprint victory.

With the win Snyder had a decision to make between the $15,000 payday or a Chili Bowl ride with Keith Kunz Motorsports plus $5,000.00. The sixteen-year-old respectfully took the Chili Bowl ride and will fulfill his dream early January 2022.
