The excitement surrounding the 52nd Annual Snowball Derby will be turned up a notch this Saturday as teams make their way to Five Flags Speedway (FL) for the traditional Snowball Derby Preview. Once again in 2019, the final three hours of the practice day will be streamed live on the Speed51 Network at no additional cost for monthly and yearly subscribers.
With only two weeks remaining until the big race on December 4-8, the Snowball Derby Preview serves as the most reasonable way for teams to gain valuable track time prior to the busy race week. A full day of practice is scheduled, including an afternoon session with money on the line for the fastest cars in each division.
Speed51 will stream the three-hour dash for cash from 4 p.m. CT to 7 p.m. CT, giving fans the chance to watch drivers put down their fastest laps of the day. The fastest Super Late Model driver will take home $500, while the fast Pro Late Model driver will get $300, and all the fast driver from each other division will receive $200.
Speed51.com’s live broadcast is available free of charge to those who have a Speed51 Network monthly or yearly subscription and will provide a first-hand look at what you can expect for Derby week. Race fans will be able to watch a multi-camera video stream with audio from the track’s public address system.
