Snowball Derby Drivers and Fans Need To Act Fast
Promoter Says Tickets Going Fast, Entries Piling Up and Pit Stalls Being Taken
Tickets to the 40th Annual Snowball Derby are going fast and the sooner fans call in to reserve their tickets, the better their chances will be to see the action from some prime seating locations.
“We put the tickets on sale for the general public on August 20th, after the period for annual renewals ran out and we’ve seen a steady flow of ticket orders,” said Bryant. “We definitely encourage folks to get their ticket orders in as soon as they can. We have put in some temporary seating for this event, that’s how hot these tickets are. The earlier the tickets are ordered, the better the seat choices are.
“We’ve seen a large number of our fans from last year and years past renew their tickets. There have been plenty of first-time fans ordering tickets as well.
“What we’re seeing more of than anything, though, are current ticket holders calling back and ordering more tickets for their family and friends. I think a lot of folks are talking to their friends about coming with them this year more than we’ve seen before.”
Fans and teams should act as fast as the racecars that they see at Five Flags to get the full experience of this year's Snowball Derby.
Reserved tickets are available by calling the track at (850) 944-8400 or by visiting the Snowball Derby website at www.snowballderby.com. Reserved tickets for all four days (Thursday-Sunday) are $70 with tickets for Sunday (raceday) only $45.00. Reserved seats will be filled on a first come first serve basis.
Super Late Model and Pro Late Model drivers coming to compete in the Snowball Derby or Snowflake 100 races at Five Flags Speedway should act fast as well. That goes for all those competing in support divisions as well during the week, including Super Stock, Modified, Sportsman and Bomber Divisions.
Pit stalls and concrete areas for teams to work off of are being taken fast.
“We’re up to about 45 entries for the Snowball Derby,” added Bryant. “We received (former
Snowball Derby Champion) Bobby Gill’s official entry the other day and we’re expecting
(defending Snowball Derby Champion) Clay Rogers’ here pretty soon.
“We don’t sell pit stalls, but we do put somebody’s name on a pit stall when we receive an
official entry. That’s the incentive for having guys get their entries in early. For some of
those guys that are planning on entering when they get here, it would be worth getting their
entry in early just to ensure having a better pit stall.”

If there is one piece of advice that Snowball Derby and Five Flags Speedway Promoter Tim Bryant has for anyone coming to the Snowball Derby weekend on November 29th – December 2nd it would be two simple words… “act fast.”
Where will teams get to pit for this year's race? That all depends on when they file their entry blanks.
