The racing season at Five Flags Speedway is all over except for one big week of racing at the 51stAnnual Snowball Derby. That leaves teams one more chance to tune on their cars at Five Flags Speedway before that big week begins. That last chance is Saturday, November 17that the Snowball Derby Preview.
This full open practice day will be available for all divisions competing over Derby week which runs from November 28 to December 2. This includes Super Late Models, Pro Late Models, Florida Modifieds, Pro Trucks, Super Stocks, Sportsman and Pure Stocks.
“We realize our schedule is tight during Snowball Derby week. This is an opportunity without the expense of a private test day for a team to be able to come shake their car down and hopefully put it in race-ready condition for the race weekend,” said Five Flags Speedway and Snowball Derby Promoter Tim Bryant.
The track will be open from 9 a.m. – 7 p.m. CT on Saturday, November 18 with rotating practice sessions throughout the day.
