With the 50th Annual Snowball Derby drawing ever closer, race teams across all divisions are planning their plan of attack to take on the ever fast and tricky Five Flags Speedway (FL). As always, many teams are also planning to arrive in Pensacola, FL early to try and get a leg up, especially given the fast nature of the Derby week schedule.
To help out, Five Flags Speedway will once again open its gates early to give teams the time they need with the Snowball Derby Preview on Saturday, November 18. This full open practice day will be available for all divisions competing over Derby week which runs from November 29 to December 3. This includes Super Late Models, Pro Late Models, Florida Modifieds, Pro Trucks, Super Stocks, Sportsman and Pure Stocks.
“We realize our schedule is tight during Snowball Derby week. This is an opportunity without the expense of a private test day for a team to be able to come shake their car down and hopefully put it in race-ready condition for the race weekend,” said Five Flags Speedway and Snowball Derby Promoter Tim Bryant.
The track will be open from 9 a.m. – 7 p.m. CT on Saturday, November 18 with rotating practice sessions throughout the day.
Pit area admission is only $20 for the day and no track rental fee is required.
Full track services will be available all day long including, fuel, tires, and the tech station.
Once again, Five Flags Speedway is also offering a little treat for the quickest teams in each division. During the late afternoon/evening hours, when mock qualifying runs are usually made, there will be cash bonuses for the driver who sets the fastest lap in each division.
The fastest Super Late Model driver will get $500 while all other divisions will receive $200. Fans can enter the grandstands at Five Flags Speedway on Snowball Derby Preview Day for absolutely no charge.
