It has become one of the great traditions of Snowball Derby week, the annual Snowball Derby Kickoff Party from Tracy Goodson’s Beef O’Brady’s in Pensacola, Florida.


This year’s event will take place at a new location in downtown Pensacola at 22 W Palafox St.


The new location won’t be the only thing new at this year’s event as there will be something for everyone who attends the event in person, or those who can’t be there but wish they could be at the party.


The event is open to everyone and serves as a great opportunity for fans to interact with their favorite drivers, enjoy a good meal, and get involved in different activities like the cornhole tournament.


Fans attending the Kickoff Party will also have the chance to get on the 51 TV broadcast and be seen by family and friends at home.


For the first time ever,’s 51 TV will broadcast the Kickoff Party live and it will be available for free online for fans who are unable to attend the event.

The broadcast will air from 6:30-8:00 p.m. CT on Tuesday night.


“For many years, we have hosted a live radio broadcast of the Snowball Derby Kickoff Party and now we are kicking it up a notch by doing a television broadcast on 51 TV,” Bob Dillner, owner said. “This will be a great opportunity for fans to get a preview of the 47th Annual Snowball Derby as we will interview many of the drivers competing in the event. Plus, we will unveil the 2014 trophy and ring that the drivers will be fighting for all week long.”


Tracy Goodson owns two Beef O’Brady locations in Pensacola and is excited to host the first ever 51 TV Kickoff Party broadcast from his location in downtown Pensacola.


“I think everyone who will come to our new location in downtown Pensacola will have a great time and we look forward to hosting the party,” Goodson said. “Our new location is on one of the top-ten streets in the nation for entertainment and growth. This will be a great area for fans and teams to visit while they are here for the Snowball Derby.


“Our new location is very open, more modern and a great atmosphere to hangout. We have 40 seats at the bar and plenty of seating. Fans should come and get autographs from their favorite drivers, enjoy our specials and the fun that will provide during their live broadcast.”


Along with the location hosting the Kickoff Party, he has another location at 2101 West Nile Mile Road, near Five Flags Speedway.


Some of the drivers who are already planning to attend include: Bubba Pollard, Daniel Hemric, Johanna Long, Ty Majeski, Clay Rogers, Stephen Nasse, Joey Polewarczyk, Jr, Brian Hoar and many more.
