Ross Kenseth is Out for Revenge on the Snowball Derby

After the Disappointment of 2010, Kenseth Wants His Derby Glory

By Matt Kentfield, Twitter: @mattkentfield Speed51

Ross Kenseth had everything going his way in the 2010 edition of the Snowball Derby. His pit strategy worked flawlessly. He sped past just about every car that everyone thought would be strong during the 300-lap race. He was right where he wanted to be inside the final 100 laps.

But, even with his plans working perfectly, he couldn’t avoid trouble ahead of him with just 70 laps to go. He was involved in a tangle that ended any chances of victory.

After thinking […]

Five Flags Regulars Defend Their Turf Against Derby Invaders

Grill and Pollard Set to Take on “Out-of-Towners” Like VanDoorn

By Ally Fulson – Twitter: @allyfulson Speed51

One of the greatest accomplishments of the Snowball Derby is the quality of drivers and teams it draws year after year.

But he’ll have some still competition from the Five Flag Speedway regulars who are ready to defend their turf. Blizzard Series Champion Augie Grill […]

By Bob Dillner – Twitter: @bobdillner Speed51
If they made a movie about the history of the Snowball Derby, I don’t know who would play Stephen Wallace’s character, but I do know he would definitely be scripted in it. That’s because the Snowball Derby (at Five Flags Speedway in Pensacola, FL) has been such a big part of Stephen Wallace’s life.

“I’ve starred in the Snowball Derby movie many times,” Stephen Wallace told us the other night as he and fellow Snowball Derby winner Clay Rogers tried to rig up […]

Hemric Ready to Put on a Show Again in the Snowflake 100

After Coming from the Rear to Sixth in 2010, Hemric is Going After the Trophy

After making a run like he did in the 2010 Allen Turner Hyundai Snowflake 100, there was no way Daniel Hemric could resist a trip back to Five Flags Speedway in Pensacola, Florida to do it again in 2011. Hemric came from the rear of his last-chance race to fight his way into the Pro Late Model show and marched his way through the field of the 100-lap event to a sixth-place finish in 2010.

Although Hemric’s usual Carswell Motorsports team won’t be able to make […]
