The 52nd Annual Snowball Derby is a four-day event where racing, race cars and speed are the priority. Beef O’Brady’s family sports restaurant knows this and wants to make sure that teams can still get great food at a great price whether it’s before, during or after their busy day.
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 his location at 2101 West 9 Mile Rd in Pensacola, Florida, located just down 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.
The discount will be available from Monday, December 2 until Sunday, December 8.
Race teams not only get a 10% discount, but they can also call Beef O’Brady’s 9 Mile Rd. 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 a discounted price.
