It took Andrea Pollard, Bubba Pollard’s sister, just two minutes to complete the Snowball Derby entry form when it went live on Monday night, July 1st. Several teams were chomping at the bit to be the first on the entry list for the 57th running. The December 8th event has already started the countdown to the Snowball Derby with ticket sales and now entries for this historic event at Five Flags Speedway.

“It’s no secret we have unfinished business at the Snowball Derby,” said Bubba Pollard. “If you race a Super Late Model, the Snowball Derby is the ultimate goal and we want to be the first one there and be the fastest car and win the Tom Dawson Trophy.”

The Senoia, Georgia driver has led the race seven times and posted three top five finishes over the course of 16 years. At the last Snowball Derby, Pollard was battling for the lead with six laps to go before a tangle took him out of the race.

“Last year was tough because we were in a position to win the race,” added Pollard. “When you build the cars in the summer and you race all year that’s what you strive to do. Be in a position to win the race. Once you get to that point, then the wanting to win the race overcomes that emotion and when you don’t it stings. Hopefully we can finish where we started in the entry order.”

Countless entries poured into the Five Flags Speedway office in just the first few hours. More information on these drivers will be coming in the next few days.

The Snowball Derby gets underway on Wednesday, December 4th with the annual parking of the rigs and pit party. Late Model teams, both Pro and Super Late Model, will draw for qualifying positions at the stage on the front stretch. The order of draw will be determined by the order of entry.

Thursday will see the first on-track action of the busy weekend when the Super Late Models and the Pro Late Models will hit the track for a full morning and afternoon of practice. Later that night the Sportsman, Pure Stocks, and Pro Trucks will take to the track for their feature events.

Fast Friday will see more practice for the Super Late Models and the Pro Late Models leading up to time trials for the 57th Annual Snowball Derby at 6 pm CT. The top 30 drivers will lock themselves into the field for Sunday’s main event. The nightcap will feature the Modified of Mayhem 2024 Championship Race, plus a Crown Stock Invitational.

Saturday is by far the busiest day at the track with practice in the morning for the Late Models before the Allen Turner Snowflake 100 cars take to the track in the mid-afternoon. Following time trials the last chance races for the Snowflake 100 and the 57th Annual Snowball Derby will occur. The 21st Annual Allen Turner Snowflake 100 will roll at 7pm, followed by the Outlaw Division.

It all leads to Sunday, the 57th running of the Snowball Derby. Green Flag will be at 1 pm CT for the 300-lap Super Late Model event.
