Do you want to help raise the excitement level during the 50th Annual Snowball Derby? If so, you can for just $50 by becoming a lap sponsor for the historic short track racing event.


Five Flags Speedway officials are continuing to sell lap sponsorships to businesses, race fans and other who want to be involved with the prestigious race.  With sponsorships available for $50 per lap, drivers will have a chance to earn up to an extra $15,000 should all 300 laps be sold.


All money raised through the Snowball Derby lap sponsorship will go directly into the pockets of the race teams that make the even so special.


300x250 Snowball Derby (Oct) 2017Those who sponsor laps will see their name or businesses name listed in the Snowball Derby event program, as well as on – the official news site of the 50th Annual Snowball Derby.  Additionally, lap sponsors receive mentions during the race weekend on the Five Flags Speedway public address system.


The more laps sold, the more pressure there will be on drivers to go for the lead and stay at the front for every lap, adding to the already high intensity that the Snowball Derby is so famous for. This will also provide an opportunity for sponsors to add their name to one of the most anticipated races in the history of short track racing.


But time is starting to run short with each passing day, and if you have any particular laps in mind, the chance of getting those particular laps may be running short as well.


So don’t a take a chance, email [email protected] or call the Five Flags Speedway office at 850-944-8400 to reserve your lap(s) or for more information.
