With the month of November nearing its halfway point, Super and Pro Late Model race teams are ramping up their preparations for the 52nd Annual Snowball Derby, coming up December 4 - 8 at Five Flags Speedway. Those hoping to gain extra laps on track in Pensacola before Derby week will have two ways to do just that before the first official practice session on Thursday, December 5.
While the Snowball Derby Preview on Saturday, November 23, is the best and most reasonable opportunity for teams to take to the track for an entire day, there are separate test days available throughout the rest of November leading up to Thanksgiving Weekend.
Race teams have options for booking their test time, from a few hours to an entire day. Whether you want to test one car on your own or multiple cars with different teams, Five Flags Speedway can get you on track.
Only certain dates are currently available for private testing. Teams interested in booking one of those dates are encouraged to contact the Five Flags Speedway office by phone at 850-944-8400.
The Snowball Derby Preview on November 23 will provide racers from all divisions with a chance to gain valuable experience at the historic Pensacola half-mile oval. Pit admission that day is only $20 per person and fans will be able to watch the action from the grandstands for free.
