The Miss Snowball Derby Pageant has become a Snowball Derby tradition in recent years.  Just as the contest grows in popularity in Pensacola, FL, the home of Five Flags Speedway, so do the awards up for grabs in the pageant.


Fast Cash ATM, which operates its business in the Panhandle of Florida, will award the top three finishers in the Miss Snowball Derby Pageant with some big bucks.  The winner will receive $500 and the title of 2018 Miss Snowball Derby, while second place will receive $300 and third place $200.


“Claude and Melanie Duval have both sat on the judging panel for past Miss Snowball Derby Pageants,” Five Flags Speedway Promoter Tim Bryant.  “Realizing how hard it was to pick a winner, they felt the need to at least offer some reward to second and third place, and are making it happen through their Fast Cast ATM business.”


Now in its fourth year, the Miss Snowball Derby Pageant will be held for a second-straight year at the Seville Quarters in downtown Pensacola on Thursday, November 15.  More than a dozen contestants are expected to compete.


The winner will represent Five Flags Speedway at as many Snowball Derby functions, as well as being present for all victory lane, pre-race, and fan activities during the week.


Ladies 17 years of age or older are eligible to compete in the 2018 Miss Snowball Derby contest and females worldwide are encouraged to enter. The pageant presents a great opportunity for young women to represent their hometown and express their love of racing at the biggest pavement short track race of the season.


Last year, Mississippi’s Emmalee Hodge was crowned the 2017 Miss Snowball Derby and will return this time around to crown her successor.
