CRA Posts Bonus for Teams Entering the Snowball Derby
Series Regulars Can Get Head Start on 2011 By Winning The Race
Series PR Report
CRA Super Series officials have announced that they will once again award a bonus to a series team competing in the 43rd Annual Snowball Derby at Five Flags Speedway on December 5th. Series officials will award a $1000 credit towards 2011 series memberships and entries if a competing team with the CRA Super Series or CRA Southern Six-Pack Tour during the 2010 season, can win the Snowball Derby. If a CRA competitor does not win the Derby, then the officials will award a 2011 series membership and one event entry to the highest finishing CRA affiliated team.
“We wanted to add a little something special for the teams that have supported us in 2010 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 several 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 or CRA Southern Six-Pack Tour events during the 2010 season and must run the CRA Super Series window valance on the top of their windshield while racing in the Snowball Derby. Kyle Busch got the bonus last year in winning the 42nd Snowball Derby with the CRA Super Series window valance on his car.
The Derby has a very strong list of 53 competitors entered to date for the event with several teams that competed with CRA at sometime during the 2010 season including 2010 CRA Super Series Champion John VanDoorn and 2010 CRA Southern Six-Pack Tour Champion Ryan Blaney. Other Snowball entries that competed in at least two CRA events in 2010 include two time Snowball winner Augie Grill, Blizzard Series Champion and Winchester 400 winner Chase Elliott, three time series Champion Scott Hantz, also Ross Kenseth, David Stremme, Bubba Pollard, Dennis Schoenfeld, Stanley Smith, Jeff Fultz, Mike Garvey, Danny Bagwell, Tim Steele, Jimmy Weller, Allen Karnes, Donnie Wilson, Mason Mingus, Jimmy Garmon, Welch & Wilson Motorsports with new driver Derrick Griffin and the Kyle Busch Motorsports Team.
