In just three days, one lucky lady will have the honor of being crowned Miss Snowball Derby for the 52nd Annual Snowball Derby at Five Flags Speedway (FL). While the pageant will once again be held right in Pensacola, Florida -- home of the Snowball Derby -- entries for the November 21st event are coming in from all over the map.
Thus far, entries have been received from four different states, including as far away as Ohio. Jessica Ballard, girlfriend of ARCA Menards Series competitor Travis Braden, will represent the Buckeye State in the pageant.
The pageant will be held once again at Seville Quarters in historic Downtown Pensacola, where one of the contestants will be handed the crown by 2018 Miss Snowball Derby, Helena Ciappina.
With 15 competitors on the roster, all of them will be competing for a chance at being crowned the sixth Miss Snowball Derby. Every competitor wants to bring home the crown, the sash and the title to their hometown.
