In a year that has been different from so many, one thing that remains the same this early November is that reserved seats for the Snowball Derby are going fast, and you want to make sure you have seats at Five Flags Speedway this December 2-6, you better order up soon.
People making the annual pilgrimage to the half-mile oval in Pensacola, Florida once again have a chance at some great reserved ticket deals, including $80 per seat good for all four days racing, on Thursday through Sunday. Also back for 2020, are the popular VIP tickets which includes a reserved seat and pit pass for all four race days for just $140.
Five Flags Speedway promoter Tim Bryant expects the rate of ticket sales to only increase in the next week or so, encouraging fans to get their Snowball Derby tickets sooner rather than later.
“We’re not sold out yet, but we’re at a brisk pace with ticket sales, and ahead of pace from where we’ve ever been before at this point. Surprising thing is the first entry list is scheduled to come out next Monday, so we got people buying in anticipation, and just to be on it,” Bryant told Speed51.
Since tickets for the 53rd Snowball Derby went on sale back in the late summer, Bryant and the Five Flags Speedway staff have been continually seen the loyalty and perseverance shown by race fans who have been to multiple Derbies, as well as those who will attend their first.
“It excites us that people want to come to this event. We are taking steps towards to ensure we conduct it in as safe a manner as possible. Plus, in light of the fact we’ve had weather issues in recent years, people want to come back. It is a testament to the competition that shows up year after year.”
Adding to the anticipation, on-site camping spaces at Five Flags Speedway are already sold out, but a limited amount of camping spaces just down the road at the Pensacola Fairgrounds are still on sale, but also going fast.
