My name is Austin Snyder, I am 15 turning 16 this August. I have been racing my whole life pretty much, since I was the age of 4 years old. I grew up in it and I’d never quit it. My dad was pro Atv racing his 250r in the late 1990s as a kid and he has helped me and I am taking his spot when he was a younger. I have been racing 450 quads for azop and won the 2018 expert class big quad championship. I have won mutual races and lost only a few. I work really hard with preparing my quad for races and practice. I workout everyday in the morning or if I have school then after school. I post every race and how I do on my Instagram @austinsnyder112. My idol is Joel hetrick. I have been watching him forever now and watch him race and take notes everyday. I strive to be pro atv and will make it happen.
I ride 3 times a week. I got to canyon motocross track every Thursday and practice on track, corners, jumps and starts. I have been riding and racing since I was 4. We go to the cinders and the dunes 3 times a year to have fun and ride. I take every chance I get to ride and practice in the wittmann Az, desert and go every Thursday to a main track in Peoria.
I was a sportsman in the beginning of the year 2018 for azop. I was racing my Honda 450 I still race today and I won all the 4 first races in the beginning of the year. They ended up moving me to 450 expert class during the 5th race of the season. This put me in 7th in the point for expert class because they take 50% of my points when I move up classes. So I was the underdog racing expert for my first year 5 races in. I ended up winning the expert class that day of the race and worked harder and harder ever since. Winning every race of the expert class season I was moving up spots in the points getting closer and closer to the end of the season. The 2nd to last race I was 2nd in points. 9 full points away from 2nd. I had got 2nd that day and was still in 2nd. Went home practicing every day and working out hard for the last race. Then as the last race of the 2018 season had came in Gila Bend I had won the race and took home the expert class championship for 2018. I am racing worcs B class for the 2019 season and I can’t wait. I am going to work harder and harder as I go on and never quit!
