Dan Fredrickson had a rough and tumble day during his first Snowball Derby.  While it might have not ended the way that he wanted to, he also pointed out to 51's Bob Dillner that it is only another 364 1/2 days until next year's big race.  Here were his raceday thoughts.


Dan Fredrickson locked himself into his first Snowball Derby, timing in with the eighth-quickest time in qualifying Friday night.  Now relaxed with a solid starting spot, Dan caught his fans up on his latest "Derby Diary" with how his car is and how he's enjoying the warm Florida sunshine.


In today's enstallment of Dan's Derby Diary, presented by DirectPEX.com, Dan talks with 51's Bob Dillner about Thursday's practice sessions, the Fast Eddie's Snowball Showdown go-kart race Thursday night and Dan's thoughts on a tense qualifying session to come later Friday.


Lakeville, Minnesota's Dan Fredrickson is making his first Snowball Derby appearance this year in the 43rd Annual running of the event.  After a long drive from his hometown, Fredrickson and his DirectPEX.com and Farm Boy BBQ team unloaded and got the #36 through tech on the first day of Derby week, Wednesday.

Dan then caught up with Speed51.com and SPEED Channel's Bob Dillner about his opening Derby Day and will continue to do "Dan's Derby Diary" throughout Derby week.
