Buggay Barrels Down on First Five Flags Allen Turner PLM Victory at Whataburger Night of Champions


By Chuck Corder

As always, Dwayne Buggay is busy when you reach him by phone.

On this day, the entrepreneurial businessman by day and weekend late model driver, is “showing some wheels” on his Cartersville, Ga., lot that boasts more than 2,500 diesels, such as Duramax and its competitors.

You patiently hold for a few minutes and when Buggay returns to the line, you offer to call back, terrified you might run off a potential suitor.

Buggay won’t have it, though. He’s eager to discuss this Saturday’s Allen Turner Pro Late Model Series season finale on the Whataburger Night of Champions at Five Flags […]

Clash of the Titans: Fowler-Buttrick Sportsmen Duel One Highlight on Whataburger Night of Champs


By Chuck Corder

It might be an uncharacteristic weekend race, but business will be bustling for the Whataburger Night of Champions on Saturday at Five Flags Speedway.

For all four divisions that will compete at Pensacola’s high banks Saturday, but especially for the West Florida Coatings Sportsmen Division.

Choquette Captures Blizzard Series Finale; Pollard Pounces on 1st Season Title at Five Flags

By Chuck Corder

Jeff Choquette was going to make sure this one didn’t slip through his grasp.

The West Palm Beach driver came to Five Flags Speedway in March for the Buddy’s Home Furnishings Blizzard Series season opener.

Choquette led for much of the second half of the race before Chase Elliott ran him down and past him with three laps left.

Choquette made sure the past would not repeat itself Friday in the Super Late Models’ season finale.

He led the last 58 laps despite a multitude of late cautions.

“We’ve struggled all year,” Choquette said. “Chase ran us down last time we were here, […]

Snowball Derby Starting Spots On the Line Friday in Blizzard Series Season Finale

Pollard to Be Crowned Champion Friday, but Plenty of Drama to Play Out Over 100 Laps

(By Speed 51)

– In 2009, Bubba Pollard has his eyes on the prize. He was one race away from his first Buddy’s Home Furnishing Blizzard Series title. Needing only a solid finish in the final race, it all came to an end with a horrific lap-one crash. Pollard went airborne over the side of another car, taking him out of the title hunt.

2012 is the revenge year as Pollard enters the final Blizzard Series race at Pensacola, Florida’s Five Flags Speedway, the Buddy’s 100, needing […]

By Chuck Corder

The year’s final laps are winding down at Five Flags Speedway.

There are only two races left in the regular season before the famed half-mile asphalt oval begins preparations for the 45th annual Snowball Derby in December.

For the Super Late Models in the Buddy’s Home Furnishings Blizzard Series, their season ends Friday night with the last of five 100 lappers.

With one race left, jockeying for a top 10 spot in the points standings becomes a foremost element in race strategy.

Teams are desperate to crack that elusive barrier and improve their eligibility for two provisional spots that are awarded to […]
