The Forest Acres product is in its second full season as an owner on the XFinity Series.
DARLINGTON, SC – A year ago, Jordan Anderson’s rookie season as an owner in the XFinity Series looked like it might be his last.
One rain storm in Daytona wiped out qualifying for the season opener at Daytona. With no points to fall back on and with no qualifying sessions unitl a few months down the road, Jordan’s team was on the sidelines for the first 10 races of the season.
But the team rallied and once qualifying resumed, the likes of Tyler Reddick and Josh Berry helped put the 31 in the show and kept them in the top 35 of the points standings, allowing Jordan’s team to resume a normal schedule with Anderson driving a few races but delegating most of the driving duties to a committee.
In 2022, Myatt Snyder is the full-time driver with Anderson on the pit box serving as owner and engineer to help provide Snyder with feedback during the races.
Anderson admits he is more nervous when he is not behind the wheel but he is slowly getting used to his role as an observer although he is far from being a casual one.
While the team has had some bad luck, Anderson says the speed has been there and that has him feeling good about the rest of the 2022 season. His budget may not be as big as some of the Xfinity series garage, it is enough to where his team has been able to hold its own with more established Xfinity series teams. This is a far cry from his days as truck series owner when he had one truck at the shop. Now, he has fleet of 20 cars, two engineers and a team that keeps growing and improving.
