RIR Sends a Longtime Fan to Vegas

Mike Snyder will mingle with NASCAR royalty for Champs Week

Vegas Sweepstakes Winner

Mike and Dianne Snyder have been coming to races at RIR for 20 years.


Richmond, VA – Mike Snyder have been coming to Richmond International Raceway for over 20 years. A season ticket holder with his wife since 1995, the couple from Morrisville, NC have always bonded over their love for NASCAR – traveling across the country for races and following their favorite driver’s (Gordon for him, she’s a Junior fan) closely, the sport has always been something they’ve loved and appreciated.

But this December, it was time to show our appreciation for them.

RIR will be sending the Mike and a guest to Champion’s Week in Vegas, where they’ll get to mingle with the “who’s who” of the racing industry, NASCAR celebrities and fellow fans.

“It’s a once in a lifetime opportunity to be able to do this,” said Snyder. “Every year I watch (Champion’s Week) live or on delay, so to actually be there will be right up there in terms of my all-time NASCAR memories.”

A retired marine, Mike Snyder currently works as a Training Coordinator in the Facilities Management Department at Duke University. But the two-hour drive hasn’t stopped the lifelong Gordon fan from making the trip to see him race at RIR, and he’s excited about the opportunity to celebrate the legend’s career in Vegas.

“I’ve been a Gordon fan since we won his first race,” said Snyder. “How many times do people get to go out on top of their sport like that? Making it into the final four like that- I don’t even know how to describe it as a fan.”

With tickets to the NASCAR NMPA Myers Brothers Award Luncheon, NASCAR Sprint Cup Series Awards, lodging at the Wynn Las Vegas and more – it’ll be a NASCAR-filled weekend for the duo in the City of Lights. Although they do plan on seeing seven-time World Music Award winner Andrea Bocelli while they’re in town for the Champion’s Week festivities.
