The Snowball Derby is one of the most coveted tickets in short track racing, as fans flock to Pensacola, Florida each December to see the biggest Super Late Model race of the year at Five Flags Speedway. There is still time for fans to check off this bucket list race for 2019, but they must act quickly.
Limited quantities of reserved tickets remain for the 52nd Annual Snowball Derby presented by BJ’s Wholesale Club. If you’re planning on going to this year’s crown jewel event, the time to order is now. Although general admission tickets are still available for seating below row 13, the number of reserved seats are dwindling.
For the best deal, fans can order a reserved ticket for $75 that grants admission for the entire week of racing, starting on Thursday, December 5 and running all the way through the Snowball Derby on Sunday, December 8. The reserved ticket gets you the same seat for every day of racing.
Be sure to get your reserved tickets for the 52nd Snowball Derby by visiting www.5flagsspeedway.com or by calling the Five Flags Speedway office at 850-944-8400.
