Bruce Nuttleman | STS

Entering Snowball Derby week, the Super Late Model entry list stands at 56 strong.

Of the 56, two have guaranteed starting positions — 2019 5 Flags Speedway champion Giovanni Bromante and two-time Southern Super Series champion Casey Roderick.

In addition to the guaranteed entrants, there is no shortage of short track star power already committed to the event. The entry list contains the de facto face of pavement Late Model racing Bubba Pollard, Winchester 400 winner Stephen Nasse, Redbud 400 winner Johnny VanDoorn and Winter Showdown winner Ty Majeski.

While the defending winner of the race, NASCAR Xfinity Series contender Noah Gragson, will not race, his No. 51 and crew chief Marcus Richmond will return with Chandler Smith behind the wheel.
