Before a single race car makes its way onto the race track during the 50th Annual Snowball Derby weekend at Five Flags Speedway, one lucky lady will become the first Snowball Derby winner of 2017.
On Thursday, November 16, the 4th Annual Miss Snowball Derby Pageant will be held at Seville Quarters in historic downtown Pensacola, Florida.
With just over two months remaining until the pageant, ladies interested in competing for the crown are encouraged to register as soon as possible by clicking here.
This year’s pageant holds extra meaning as Five Flags Speedway celebrates the 50th anniversary of the most prestigious Super Late Model race in the country. Coincidentally, Seville Quarters – the location for this year’s pageant – is also celebrating their 50th anniversary this year.
Ladies 18 years of age or older are eligible to compete in the 2017 Miss Snowball Derby contest and females worldwide are encouraged to compete. 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.
The women will compete in evening wear and casual wear to determine who will be awarded the $500 prize.
Miss Snowball Derby’s responsibilities include representing Five Flags Speedway at as many Snowball Derby functions as possible, as well as being present for all victory lane photos, pre-race ceremonies and fan activities throughout the 50th Annual Snowball Derby.
No talent or pageant experience is necessary to enter the Miss Snowball Derby Pageant. Winning contestants will reign for the term of one year by making personal appearances, together and as a group, representing Five Flags Speedway.
