The entry list for the 49th Annual Snowball Derby has surpassed the 60-driver mark and is continuing to grow with a deep talent pool from top to bottom.  As of October 31, the entry list for the Snowball Derby is now at 64 and expected to grow even more with just over one month until the biggest asphalt short track race of the year.


Headlining the latest batch of entries received by the offices at Five Flags Speedway in Pensacola, Florida is NASCAR XFINITY Series driver Corey LaJoie.  LaJoie has made two prior starts in the Snowball Derby, with each coming in the last two years.  LaJoie’s best finish came in his first Derby start in 2014 when he finished 13th.


Former NASCAR K&N Pro Series East regular Kaz Grala will be making the trip to Pensacola for his second attempt at the Snowball Derby.  Grala started 10th in 2015 and finished the 300-lap showdown in the exact same position.


Boris Jurkovic, Scotty Ellis, Cole Rouse, Jerry Artuso and Michael Atwell were the other drivers to add their name to the already deep entry list for the prestigious race.
