We’re just about three weeks away from the week of the year all short track racers and fans from across the country have been waiting for. The 48th Annual Snowball Derby is closing in. But there’s more to that week than just the Derby and the Allen Turner Hyundai Snowflake 100. There’s also racing for the Modifieds, Trucks, Bombers, Super Stocks and Sportsman.
In the Schaeffer’s Snowball Central section on Speed51.com powered by JEGS, the entry lists for the Snowball Derby Modifieds and Snowball Derby Trucks can now be found.
The Modified entry list is already looking pretty strong with Modifieds of Mayhem stalwart and defending Snowball Derby Modified winner, Donnie Hamrac headlining the list. Doug Moff and DJ Hoelzle are two other notable names to have already filed entries.
Another notable name to have filed an entry for this year’s Modified race is Super Late Model ace and two-time Snowball Derby winner, Augie Grill. The Alabama driver occasionally brings out his ground-pounder for action and he’s decided to give it a go this year.
The Snowball Derby Trucks entry list is also starting to take shape as it has already surpassed the double-digit mark. Eric and Kristen Wallace headline the list so far. Mason Teague, Mark Lindley and more have also already filed entries for what is sure to be an exciting event as always.
The 48th Annual Snowball Derby weekend kicks off with the Cat Country/WEAR-TV3 Green Flag Party on Wednesday, December 2. On-track activities start Thursday, December 3, for the opening practice rounds for the Snowball Derby Super Late Models and Snowflake 100 Pro Late Models. The Five Flags Butler U-Pull-It Bombers and Beef ‘O’ Brady’s Sportsman divisions will also have feature events on Snowball Derby Thursday.
The top Snowball Derby starting spots will be set on Friday, December 4 during WXBM 102.7 Pole Night at Five Flags. The Five Flags Faith Chapel Super Stocks and Modifieds will also battle in their Snowball Derby features after Super Late Model qualifying.
The Allen Turner Hyundai Snowflake 100 takes center stage on Saturday, December 5 as the top Pro Late Model racers in the country qualify and battle for 100 laps at Five Flags. In addition, Saturday’s action features the final 50-lap qualifying event for Snowball Derby drivers to make one last effort to qualify for the 300-lap Super Late Model race. The Better Built Tool Box Pro Trucks will also have a 50-lap feature on Snowball Derby Saturday.
Then on Sunday, December 6, the green flag will drop on the 48th Annual Snowball Derby at 2 p.m. CT at Pensacola, Florida’s Five Flags Speedway.
