Comment From Stan 

Go Tyler Millwood 

This should be a real interesting round of qualifying as we didn’t have speeds from earlier due to technical issues. 
Tickets for the 43rd Annual Snowball Derby go on sale on Tuesday August 17th. Go to the track website, http://5flagsspeedway.com/ for more information. 
We are closing on the start of qualifying for the Miller Lite 100. 
Comment From charles e 

johanna’s car looks great i like the new vinyl job 

Qualifying for the Miller Lite 100 will take place at the top of the hour. 
We currently have Trackside Now coverage going from Toledo Speedway (OH) for the CRA Super Series race. They will also have radio coverage of the Klotz Synthetic Lubricants 100 at Toledo and it will be broadcast live on RaceTalkRadio.com at approximately 8:30pm ET. SPEED’s Bob Dillner and the voice of the CRA Super Series, Adam Mackey, will be on the call. Matt “Duke” Kentfield will be on pit road and at the keys of Trackside Now leading up to tonight’s broadcast. 
While the Kyle Busch Motorsports team goes through tech here at Five Flags Speedway at Toledo Speedway in Ohio Busch himself is taking fans around the track in a school bus.

Practice is in the books for the Super Late Models. 
Chassis builders Hamke Racecars and Grand American Race Cars have had a strangle hold on the competition here at Five Flags Speedway. 
Hamke vs. GARC? Each have five wins in the last 10 events here. (51 Sports Photo)
The scoring staff here at Five Flags Speedway is one of the best in the nation, and we’re not just saying that. Few groups of scorers can deal with 120 Late Models on Derby weekend, but they do it every year. At present time the transponders are having issues collecting data. They hope to have things figured out before qualifying. We currently have very little information on practice. After all it is Friday the 13th. 
Comment From Guest 

Who is the fastest in practice? 

Last night we took a ride with Johanna Long around the half-mile track of Five Flags Speedway. Here’s a look at the video we shot with our camera.
Tonight’s event has lots of implications for the 43rd annual Snowball Derby. The top two drivers in the points get automatic berths into the event if they don’t qualify on time. Also, it pays to be in the top 10 in points as a provisional will be awarded to the highest non-qualifying guy in the top 10 if they don’t make the show.

Today’s race and the entire Blizzard Series along with the Miller Lite Series events at Mobile are a part of the Gulf Coast championship Series. Here are the standing after 5 of 9 events. Keep in mind it’s normally a 10 race series, but a rainout at Mobile cost the series one event.

After 25 minutes, TJ Reaid has the quick time. His teammate, Josh Hamner, is up on jacks right now. 
Comment From Ben 

Always nice to know you guys are on the job. I can’t tell you how much a lot of us out here appreciate your work. Thank you, Ben. 

Practice is about to start here at Five Flags Speedway. Chuck Barnes Jr. will be the first car on the track. 
Each team voted for the round five pit stop rules. (51 Sports Photo)
Last night’s practice had some interesting twist too it. Johanna Long test not one, not two, but three Super Late Models here at Five Flags. When it was all said and done here old car with new colors was the fastest. We are still not sure which one she will drive today.Bubba Pollard lost a motor about halfway through practice stopping all action as track officials cleaned up the mess. Pollard will be driving his Mobile car here today at Five Flags.

The Hamke vs. GARC war continues down here on the Florida Panhandle, GARC has won the last five Blizzard races dating back to last season. When they won their first of the five a year ago they stopped a five race win streak by Hamke Race Cars. Tonight could be the rubber match.

TJ Reaid is here today in a second Kyle Busch Motorsports entry. Reaid is making his first start in the Gulf Coast Championship Series. His teammate Josh Hamner has been strong down here at times, but has not yet visited victory lane in 2010.

Donnie Wilson is back looking to erase some bad luck he has had here in the past. In each of the last two Gulf Coast Super Late Model events he has been spun out while running in the top 10. Tonight he wants to first off finish and go from there.

We have a few notable drivers not here tonight, first off Eddie Mercer has decided to sit this race out after having lots of handling issues in the first three races. We expect him to be back four round five. Also Brandon Carlson is not here tonight, a local favorite who is a former Snowflake 100 winner. Perhaps the biggest surprise is Casey Smith who has not missed a Blizzard race since 2006. Smith had to work and will miss out on this weekend’s events. 
Comment From tad 

where is eddie mercer??? 

Tonight’s poll is for the fifth round of the Blizzard Series. 
Comment From LeadSeventeen 

So the “poll” of the drivers for live pit stops is not for tonights race, is that correct? 

We figure that he is just sitting this one out. Rogers loves coming to Five Flags, we should see him at the next Blizzard event. 
Comment From Guest 

david rogers didnt make the run up there this time? i know he is running the bright house show at NSS tomm, he usually does a double. 

We are heading trackside for the drivers meeting. We’ll be back shortly. 
We also have learned that drivers are going to be polled about having live pit stops for round five in the Super Late Model division here Five Flags and at Mobile. If you remember series officials put in a halfway break last time around and it was met with some heavy disapproval. Mobile drivers will also have a chance to vote tomorrow. We expect the votes to pass for live pit stops. 
We will be moving the drivers meeting up to 3:30 as there is weather in the area which could mess with tonight’s schedule. We should be ok to roll, but it’s just a percaution.
