The location might be different for 2020 and beyond, but the great hospitality is still the same as Beef ‘O’ Brady’s of Pensacola, Florida will once again offer race teams discounts on meals for those attending the 53rd Annual Snowball Derby, just down the road at Five Flags Speedway.
Short track racing fan and former car owner Tracy Goodson, the owner of Beef ‘O’ Brady’s in Pensacola, will once again offer competitors a 10% discount on food (not alcohol) at the new location of 1 New Market St. in Pensacola, Florida, still just up the road from the race track.
The same location will also play host to the Snowball Derby Kickoff Party on Tuesday, December 3 at 7:00 p.m. CT and with a number of the same drivers who will tackle the 53rd Snowball Derby gathering for food, drinks, and fun. The Snowball Derby Kickoff Show will feature live music at Beef ‘O’ Brady’s beginning at 9 p.m.
The 10% discount is available now and will run until Sunday, December 6.
Race teams not only get a 10% discount, but they can also call Beef ‘O’ Brady’s 1 New Market St. location and order food that will be catered for their team. Teams can call, order food for the crew and pick it up, all at the discounted price. Teams can call (850) 332-5040 to place their orders.
