Time continues to tick away until the 50th running of the Snowball Derby on December 3 and while racing entries continue to come in, so are the calls for reserved tickets for what has become the most highly anticipated Derby in its history.
Motorsports fans from all across the nation and beyond have been eagerly claiming their seats at Five Flags Speedway (FL) ever since they went on sale back in late August. The response has been awesome, as reserved ticket sales are well ahead of the first 49 Snowball Derby weekends. This means that if you’re planning on going to the Snowball Derby and want a reserved seat, the time to order is now.
This year for the first time in its history, Snowball Derby weekend will expand to five straight days of racing, with the Pure Stocks being added to Green Flag Pit Party and Qualifying Draw on Wednesday, November 29.
You can see all five days of racing with a single $75 super-ticket which gets you the same seat for all five days. It is the same amount as last year’s all-week tickets, but with an extra day of racing for 2017.
