Since debuting in late August, Speed51.TV presented by Haney Lifestyle and HMS Motorsport has already played host to many of the nation’s top short track events. With the granddaddy of short track racing, the 53rd Annual Snowball Derby at Florida’s Five Flags Speedway drawing closer, next Thursday, November 19 will see a great off-track event making its Speed51.TV debut, the Miss Snowball Derby pageant.
The broadcast will be available for free to all viewers from across town in Pensacola to all corners of the globe.
A record number of contestants, ladies 17 years of age or older will compete for the title 2020 Miss Snowball Derby in front of both a local crowd at Seville Quarters in downtown Pensacola and a worldwide audience via Speed51.TV. The pageant presents a great opportunity for young women to represent their hometown and express their love of racing at the biggest pavement short track race of the season.
Contestants will compete in evening wear and casual wear. The winner will receive the crown of Miss Snowball Derby, as well as a $1,000 cash prize from Fast Cash ATM, while second and third place will receive $300 and $200, respectively.
Last year, Pensacola’s Bristal Aaron was crowned the 2019 Miss Snowball Derby and will return this time around to crown her successor.
Miss Snowball Derby’s responsibilities include representing Five Flags Speedway at as many Snowball Derby functions as possible, as well as being present for all victory lane photos, pre-race ceremonies and fan activities throughout the 53rdAnnual Snowball Derby. Winning contestants will reign for the term of one year by making personal appearances, together and as a group, representing Five Flags Speedway.
