For the 2021 NASCAR Xfinity season, the Richard Childress Racing team will renew its partnership with TaxSlayer. Owing to this, the team will field Myatt Snider for the coming season. When Snider made his Xfinity debut, he raced for RCR for a handful of races in 2020. Otherwise, he saw out the rest of the year with Ryan Shane Sieg Racing.

We’re proud to be continuing our relationship with both Myatt Snider and TaxSlayer for the 2021 season,” said team founder Richard Childress. “TaxSlayer is a great tax and financial company, who prides themselves on being family-focused, much like RCR. We’re looking forward to showing our fans the benefits of using TaxSlayer, as we approach both the racing season and tax season. I know that Myatt will do a great job representing both TaxSlayer and RCR on and off the racetrack.”
