CRA Super Series to Award Bonus for a Series Driver in the Snowball Derby
Event is a Snowball Derby Week Tradition in Pensacola
CRA Super Series officials have announced that they will award a bonus to a series team competing in the 42nd Annual Snowball Derby at Five Flags Speedway on December 6th. Series officials will award a $1000 credit towards 2010 series memberships and entries if a competing team with the CRA Super Series during the 2009 season can win the Snowball Derby. If a CRA competitor does not win the Derby, then the officials will award a 2010 series membership to the highest finishing CRA affiliated team in the Derby.
"We wanted to add a little something special for the teams that have supported us in 2009 that will be competing in the Snowball Derby this year," remarked R.J. Scott, Managing Partner of Champion Racing Association. "We have the utmost respect for Tim Bryant and his entire staff at Five Flags Speedway for the great job they have done in building the Snowball Derby into one of the greatest short track events in the country. This event is the premier late model event in the country each year, and we are glad to have some of our competitors competing in it again this year!"
To be eligible for the bonus, a team must have competed in at least two CRA Super Series events during the 2009 season and must run the CRA Super Series window valance on the top of their windshield while racing in the Snowball Derby. The Derby has a very strong list of 61 competitors entered for the event with several teams that competed with CRA at sometime during the 2009 season including three time series Champion Scott Hantz. Other Snowball entries that competed in at least two CRA events in 2009 include NASCAR star Kyle Busch, Blizzard Series Champion Johanna Long, Justin Drawdy, Tom Thomas, Ryan Sieg, Dennis Schoenfeld, Stanley Smith, Jeff Fultz, Chase Elliott, Heath Hindman and the BDI Racing Team with driver Bobby Gill.
