Jessie Reid’s crashed Super Stock
7:46
Super Stock qualifying is now complete.  Jessie Reid set fast time on his first lap, but crashed on his second lap.  Mike Moore will now get credit as the fast-timer.The Blizzard Series Super Late Models are now next on the track.
7:36
The cleanup is nearly complete in turn one from the Jessie Reid crash.  There are five more Super Stocks set to take time once the track goes back to green. 
7:31
We’re halfway through Super Stock qualifying and under caution.  Jessie Reid looped the #18R in turn one and slammed the outside wall at near-full speed driver’s-side first.  Something apparently broke under the car.  Reid is okay, according to track officials.
7:26
No you did not.  Super Stocks are out now for their time trials, with the Blizzard Series Super Late Models to follow them.
7:26
Comment From bobaru

Five Flags Speedway race director Dan Spence has just announced for the Sportsman and Bomber classes to each get a 10-lap practice session to finish drying the track.  Once those sessions are complete, the Super Stocks and Super Late Models will begin qualifying. 
6:46

Second rounds of practice for the support divisions have been scrapped for this evening.  Next up will be qualifying for the Super Stocks and the Super Late Models.The track drying efforts are going well and we’re now just a short time away from having the track race-ready.
6:20
And just as quickly as the rain came, it has stopped here at Five Flags.  Track drying efforts are underway and we should be able to have cars on the track again shortly. 
6:16
Looking at the radar, there are spotty showers all around the Gulf Coast, but nothing appears to be big nor anything that should stick around for long.

A brief shower has popped up over Five Flags Speedway, but the sun is already peeking back out and as long as the shower clears out quickly, we won’t miss a beat here at Five Flags. 
6:04
The first round of Bomber, Sportsman and Super Stock practice has completed.  There will be one more round for each division before qualifying begins.

For you fans wondering what is going on in the NASCAR K&N Pro Series East race at Dover International Speedway (DE), former ASA Late Model competitor Brett Moffitt has scored the victory in the Sunoco 150 today.  Moffitt inherited the lead on a green-white-checkered restart when leader Max Gresham blew up.  Moffitt then held off Corey LaJoie on the final green-white-checkered restart for the win.  Ryan Truex finished third and clinched his second-straight KNPSE title.

Comment From EARL 

WHAT TIME WILL THE RACE BE BROCASTED? 

4:58
4:58
Elliott still leads practice with TJ Reaid, Eddie Mercer, Casey Smth, and Dwayne Buggay in the top five. 
4:48
Just got an update from scoring DJ VanderLey will be in the 40 car tonight and not Dave Mader III. VanderLey is on his way to the Pro Late Model track title after five wins here at Five Flags Speedway. 
4:40
As of right now Chase Elliott has the best time in practcie at a 16.891. 
4:30
Qualifying can be real important tonight as the pole sitter will get 15 points and one point down form that all the way back to one point. Every driver will get at least one point for attempting qualifying. 
4:18
There is a lot more on the line then the championship as the top 10 in points will have a chance to get into the Snowball Derby if they don’t make it on time. The top two guys will be locked in no matter what happens and the positions could change tonight. 
4:05
Chuck Barnes and Casey Smith have joined him for the opening laps of practice. 
4:04
Ronnie Smith is the first car on the track. 
4:00
Super Late Models are rolling to the end of pit road. 
3:59
Not that we can see, but they can sneak in on us here at Five Flags. 
3:59
Comment From Tad 

has anymore cars showed up besides aug?? 

3:58
Same story from the drivers meeting as the previous Blizzard races, teams will have four tires, two stickers (right side) and two scuffs (any combo) to use. The stickers can only taken at the competition caution on lap 51 while the scuffs can be used if a tire is flat on the rim. An official has to approve a flat tire. Race lineup will be set by a draw of 4,6,8 after time trials. 
3:54
Drivers listen to the rules here at Five Flags Speedway. (51 Photo)
3:52
The driver’s meeting is in the books and we are a few minutes from practice. 
3:25
3:25
We’re headed down to talk with some drivers before and after the drivers’ meeting.  We’ll be back with some more nuggets when we return.
3:24
Augie Grill showed up with his red car today. (51 Photo)
3:12
Interesting developments from Augie Grill’s camp.  Grill will be competing in the red #112 that he won the Pro Late Model Snowflake 100 with last year, with a Super Late Model engine in it here tonight.  That is because Grill sold his usual Super Late Model to Dakota Stroup after the Ken-Ten Late Model race at Nashville a few weeks back.  That leaves Grill with only his red car, which they have swapped engines in for this event and will continue to do so for the next few weeks, at the very least.  Grill told us that he and his Grand American Race Cars business can build a car and make it race-ready in three weeks, but they are quite busy these days with customers’ cars, so it may take a while before they have a new Super Late Model to run. 
3:05
Jimmy Garmon is racing here tonight in a #97 owned by Gary Hanning.  This is the fourth different car owner that he has competed with this season.
2:59
We haven’t seen Justin Drawdy racing much these days, but that’s understandable.  With a growing family and managing a successful construction company in Central Florida, his time to go racing is limited these days.  But, it’s great to see a talented kid like Chuck Barnes, Jr. get a shot in a good racecar such as Drawdy’s here tonight. 
2:59
Comment From Guest 

So does Justin Drawdy actually run his car any more or is he solely renting a ride these days? 

2:57
Comment From 54clarkfan 

this race or any race at 5 flags does not need a nascar name, these guys are all big names in the slm world 

2:56
Another guy who folks have been asking about in our comments today is Mike Garvey.  Garvey has been strong in his return to Super Late Model racing here in the Gulf Coast this season in Tracy Goodson’s car, but he makes his primary living as a crew chief for Ryan Sieg in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series, while also start-and-parking a Truck in those events, as well.  Garvey will be handling those roles in Las Vegas tomorrow and was not able to get a flight back to Pensacola’s for tonight’s Blizzard Series finale. 
2:54
Augie Grill’s rig is currently pulling into the infield 
2:53
We’ve heard that Ryan Lawler is done in Stanley Smith’s #49 car in which he competed in several times in recent seasons.  Josh Hamner competed in Smith’s #49 last weekend in the CRA Super Series’ event at O’Reilly Raceway Park, but Hamner is back in a Kyle Busch Motorsports car today and no Smith #49 is here.We have also heard that there is a possibility that Lawler could be competing in the Snowball Derby in one of Robert Hamke’s house cars, but we have not been able to confirm that with any of the parties involved just yet.
2:49
As Speed51.com reported earlier this year, defending Snowball Derby winner Kyle Busch will not be at this year’s Derby to defend his title.  Busch, as one of the 12 “Chase” drivers in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series, will be attending the banquet in Las Vegas the same weekend as the Snowball Derby.Beyond that, we haven’t heard any NASCAR-types that will be competing in this year’s Snowball Derby.

We did check with Five Flags Speedway track promoter Tim Bryant, who said that there are already nearly 40 Snowball Derby entries and around 30 Snowflake 100 Pro Late Model entries for the Derby weekend this year.

2:49
Comment From mreracing 

This may be a crazy question but have you guys heard of any “BIG” names that might be at the derby this year? Any of the NASCAR guys?? 

2:45
Another driver not making today’s trip to Five Flags is Troutman, North Carolina’s Jeff Fultz.  Fultz sits eighth in points here in the Blizzard Series and second in the Miller Lite Super Late Model Series’ points at Mobile International Speedway, but he will be missing both events here on the Gulf Coast this weekend.Instead of making the trip here, Fultz will be focused on managing his Jeff Fultz Racing/C&C Motortsports fleet of cars in Saturday night’s PASS South event at Hickory Motor Speedway (NC).

Pensacola’s teenage sensation Johanna Long, last year’s Blizzard Series Champion, is skipping tonight’s event here at her home track to compete in tomorrow’s NASCAR Camping World Truck Series event at Las Vegas Motor Speedway (NV).  Long’s family team, Panhandle Motorsports, has invested in a few Trucks for the 18-year-old and she will be making her debut with that team tonight after already competing in three Truck races with Billy Ballew Motorsports in 2010.
2:41
Comment From Pete 

Did Johanna skip this race to race the Truck because she was going to lose the championship anyway? 

2:40
Chase Elliott is the point leader in the Blizzard Series. (51 Photo)
2:37
The 2010 Blizzard Series Championship, as well as two guaranteed starting spots for the 43rd Annual Snowball Derby this December, are on the line tonight.Chase Elliott holds a 29-point lead over Augie Grill, while Bubba Pollard is only 23-points behind Grill in third.  There are qualifying points as well as finishing-position points available, so any of those three could potentially walk away with tonight’s Blizzard Series title.

Also, the top-10 in points from the Blizzard Series will also be eligible for a guaranteed starting spot in the Snowball Derby.  The top-two drivers from the top-10 in points not qualifying into the Derby on time will be given guaranteed starting spots in this year’s event, held here at Five Flags on December 5th.

That’s where we were this morning, as a matter of fact!  Anyone who finds themselves in Pensacola, whether for a race here at Five Flags or just on vacation, a trip to the Pensacola Naval Air Base and its museum is a must-do!

Augie’s late? Big surprise – lol. While y’all are in town you ought to check out the Navy base.

As far as practice from last night, 17 cars hit Five Flags Speedway in practice, but transponder times were not kept.  Unofficially, according to some stopwatches we got to see, Chase Elliott, Bubba Pollard and TJ Reaid were among the quickest guys that hit the track.

The weather here is quite warm and muggy, with temperatures in the low 90’s and a heat index pushing triple-digits.  But, the weather should be just fine for tonight’s event.  There is a 30-percent chance of spotty showers tonight, but we should be okay.
