The Month of November is here, which means that America’s racing faithful will soon descend on the Florida Gulf Coast for the Snowball Derby at Five Flags Speedway. Even before the big week of December 2-6, there are still a pair of big traditions that are only two weeks away, one of which is the Miss Snowball Derby Pageant, to see who will wear the crown for the 53rd Snowball Derby.
Once again, the pageant will be held at the regal Seville Quarters in historic downtown Pensacola, Florida. where another great cast of ladies will compete for the honor of being named Miss Snowball Derby on Thursday, November 19. Like in recent years, it will be streamed live to a global audience, making it’s debut on the new Speed51.TV presented by HMS Motorsport and Haney Lifestyle.
Ladies 17 years of age or older are eligible to compete in the 2020 Miss Snowball Derby contest and females worldwide, but registration is now closed. The pageant presents a great opportunity for young women to represent their hometown and express their love of racing at the biggest pavement short track race of the season.
Contestants will compete in evening wear and casual wear. The winner will receive the crown of Miss Snowball Derby, as well as a $1,000 cash prize from Fast Cash ATM, while second and third place will receive $300 and $200, respectively. In addition, the winner will receive a piece of fine jewelry from Jewelers Trade Shop, and Miss Congeniality will receive a piece of fine jewelry from Bere’ Jewelers.
Last year, Pensacola’s Bristal Aaron was crowned the 2019 Miss Snowball Derby and will return this time around to crown her successor.
Miss Snowball Derby’s responsibilities include representing Five Flags Speedway at as many Snowball Derby functions as possible, as well as being present for all victory lane photos, pre-race ceremonies and fan activities throughout the 51st Annual Snowball Derby.
No talent or pageant experience is necessary to enter the Miss Snowball Derby Pageant. Winning contestants will reign for the term of one year by making personal appearances, together and as a group, representing Five Flags Speedway.
