One of the most fun nights of Snowball Derby week takes place before haulers enter through the gates of Pensacola, Florida’s Five Flags Speedway.  It’s the Snowball Derby Kickoff Party at Downtown Pensacola’s Beef O’ Brady’s.  It’s a great night of fun and food at Beef O’ Brady’s, and a big part of what makes it so much fun is all of the drivers and fans that show up to let loose before it’s time to get serious about winning the biggest pavement short track race in the country.


So drivers, this is your invitation to the Snowball Derby Kickoff party.  We want as many drivers as possible to hang out and have fun with us at Beef O’ Brady’s.


In addition to having a whole lot of fun, the night also serves as a great opportunity for drivers to get noticed both at the restaurant and on Speed51 TV’s live online show that will be broadcast to fans all across the world for free.


Already confirmed for this year’s Kickoff Party are Corey LaJoie, Derek Thorn, Kaz Grala, Todd Gilliland, Raphael Lessard, Noah Gragson, Tyler Ankrum, Dalton Sargeant, Cole Moore and Logan Boyett.


But we still want more.  We want to pack the restaurant with as many drivers and fans as possible.


There will be games, there will be great food, there will be live sports, there will be Speed51 TV cameras and personalities, and most importantly, it will be fun.


So make sure to come on down to Beef O’ Brady’s at 22 S. Palafox St. in Pensacola on Tuesday, November 29 for what is sure to be a great night of fun.


The Snowball Derby Kickoff Party will air live on Speed51 TV for free from 7-9 p.m. ET.
