They say the early bird gets the worm, but for the next few hours, the early bird short track fans will get something way better than that. Fans who purchase the four-day 51 TV live Snowball Derby broadcast package on www.speed51.com will not only get to watch all the action of the 47th Annual Snowball Derby on 51 TV, but will also have the chance to experience short track action near them in person in 2015.
Early-bird Fans who purchase the 51 TV four-day live video broadcast package of the 47th Annual Snowball Derby through November 26 will have the chance to win one of 10 grand prize packages from Speed51.com.
The first 100 fans who purchase the four-day Snowball Derby package for just $54.99 through 11:59pm ET on Wednesday, November 26 will be entered into a drawing for one of 10 grand prizes. Each grand prize package includes two free grandstand tickets to a short track race in the winner’s home region in 2015.
“We’ve gotten an overwhelming amount of positive feedback about our Snowball Derby broadcast plans on 51 TV,” said Matt Kentfield, Speed51.com Executive Director. “We know that not everyone can make the trip to Pensacola, Florida to witness the most prestigious short track race of them all in person, so that’s why we and Tim Bryant and his staff at Five Flags Speedway have partnered to bring the Snowball Derby to a worldwide audience.
“At the same time, even our multiple-camera professional broadcast doesn’t fully substitute for being at a track and experiencing the sights and sounds in person. That’s why we want those who are enjoying the Snowball Derby on 51 TV to have the chance to see a race near their home in person next season to get the true experience of what short track racing is all about.”
To be eligible for one of the 10 grand prizes that will be awarded, fans must purchase the $54.99 four-day Snowball Derby broadcast ticket on www.speed51.com. Fans who have already purchased the four-day package as of press time will be included in the giveaway and will be entered into the contest for the 10 grand prizes.
Speed51.com will randomly select 10 grand prize winners and will be contacted the week of December 1, which is also Snowball Derby week at Pensacola, Florida’s Five Flags Speedway. Winners will be offered two free grandstand tickets to a short track race of their choice from a select list of events in their home region.
Individual day broadcast tickets are also available, but advance purchases of those are not eligible for the grand prize ticket giveaway.
