The biggest short track race in America is right around the corner and everything to prepare for the 50th Annual Snowball Derby at Five Flags Speedway (FL) is in full swing. Lap Sponsorship for the 300-lap feature race is now available for purchase for $50 per lap.
This is an opportunity for drivers to cash in an extra paycheck by taking home the extra chunk of change for each lap that they lead in the Snowball Derby on December 3, 2017. As much as $15,000 in lap money is available as the battle for the lead becomes that much more intense for the second year in a row.
“With the help of our friends at Speed51.com we’ll be making an all-out effort to sell every lap for the Snowball Derby,” said Tim Bryant, promoter of Five Flags Speedway and the Snowball Derby. “Leading a race like the Derby is where you want to be anyway, but a little extra cash incentive just might make things more interesting, and could potentially have some crew chiefs re-thinking their strategy.”
In order for the full amount of $15,000 to be available, all 300 laps must be sold. This is a great opportunity for a business, family, or team to have their name become a part of racing history in the biggest short track race in America.
As if the lap money wasn’t enough incentive to get to the front of the field, the winner of the 50th annual Snowball Derby will also take home a check worth $22,500. If all 300 lap slots are sold, that could be up to $37,500 up for grabs to one lucky driver.
For information on how to purchase laps, please email [email protected] or call the Five Flags Speedway office at 850-944-8400. Laps will be available on a first-come, first-served basis.
