Earlier in the spring, Speed51 revealed its bold new look to the racing world. At the same time, 51 is carrying on a tradition for the 17th straight year, with the latest look of Speed51.com going "ice blue" as the weather turns cold and one of the greatest events in short track racing draws closer.
The mission is still the same as Speed51 gears up for the 52nd Annual Snowball Derby at Five Flags Speedway. With the website now "iced out" you can expect oodles of Snowball Derby content to prepare you for the big race in Pensacola, Florida.
Already, the "Race to the Snowball Derby" has hit a high in excitement, with the release of the first Super Late Model entry list, the event schedule and the announcement of new Snowball Derby presenting sponsor BJ's Wholesale Club.
Adding to the excitement is the first ever giveaway by Speed51 of a Snowball Derby VIP Experience, which will be won by two lucky fans in the coming days. To file your free entry into the contest today, visit www.racetosnowball.com.
With Speed51 iced out, this is the time of year when teams, including our Speed51 team, are at our busiest. With it comes an annual celebration of the sport we love. Through it all, as the official source of all Snowball Derby information, news, coverage and more, you can expect a huge splash of content leading up to the Derby.
In the coming weeks, Speed51.com will have plenty of features to choose from, as we chronicle the efforts of drivers and race teams who will make the big trip south to the Gulf Coast. You can also take a peek into the past with plenty of Derby history, including past stories and photo galleries.
The Speed51 Network will also turn down the thermostat with plenty of preview videos, plus all the highlights and interviews from years past.
It all leads up to the big week, starting on Wednesday, December 4 with the arrival of Late Model teams, along with the first on-track time on Thursday, December 5.
The Snowball Derby will take place on Wednesday, December 4 through Sunday, December 8 at Five Flags Speedway in Pensacola, FL. For more information regarding the event, visit Speed51's Snowball Central.
