Tory Snyder Sweeps Pro R/A Stock at IJSBA World Finals & PWX Championships

In possibly one of the most explosive freshman years ever in the history of Pro Runabout racing, Tory Snyder has achieved a feat only accomplished once before, and that by one of the sport’s most acclaimed racers, Chris MacClugage. The Bradenton, Florida native and son of multi-championship winner Troy Snyder, charged into the 2021 season aboard two Snyder Build, Judge Motorsports-tuned Yamaha SVHO WaveRuners and took home a shelf-full of national and world titles.

A month earlier, Snyder fought back fierce international competition to earn his first Pro-Am Runabout Stock world championship at the 40th annual IJSBA World Finals in Lake Havasu City, AZ.

Snyder wrote in a trending post, “This one means a lot to us. This wouldn’t be possible without these 4 guys [Troy Snyder, Tim Judge, Dean Charrier and Michael Bouchard] They built me an unbelievable ski.”

For Tory’s final race of the year, the 18-year-old capped off his undefeated year with two national championships in Pro Runabout GP and Pro Runabout Stock.

Snyder told The Watercraft Journal, “[What an] unbelievable weekend in Naples; I took the win in Pro Stock. I’m the first person since [Chris MacClugage] to win Pro [Runabout] Stock in Havasu and Naples in the same year.”

For this past weekend at the Pro Watercross World Championships, Snyder piloted a Yamaha GP1800R SVHO with a Dean’s Team tune and several “goodies” from Judge Motorsports that Tory joked as being “classified” – fair enough.

Tory concluded, “I couldn’t have done it without my dad and mom, Snyder Built, Judge Motorsports, Dean’s Team, Yamaha, JetPilot, and Saints of Speed. Thank you!”
