ASA Southern Super Series
Byron Headlines Stout Field of Drivers Headed to Five Flags This Weekend
Jul 17, 2023
The driver with the best average finish across the two Blizzard Series races at Five Flags Speedway this weekend will win an unprecedented prize package for December's Snowball Derby.
Last year, the driver with the best average finish in the PepperJack Kennels Twin 100s earned a spot in the Superstar Racing Experience field when the series visited Five Flags Speedway later that summer. This year, another exciting prize is up for grabs that will be coveted among Super Late Model teams making Snowball Derby plans.
For the PepperJack Kennels Twin 100s on July 21-22, the driver with the best average finish will win an exciting prize package towards the 56th Annual Snowball Derby presented by Hooters on December 3.
Included in the prize package is free registration for the Snowball Derby, eight free pit passes for the week of the Snowball Derby, four sets of race tires, up to 25 gallons of fuel for the race, and eight all-inclusive VIP PepperJack Kennel Club credentials.
The winning driver will also receive a free private test on the weekend prior to the Snowball Derby, as well as a Five Star Body Re-Skin Kit.
Each night’s 100-lap Super Late Model feature will also pay $10,000 to the winner. As a result, it’s possible one fortunate and very fast driver will take home $20,000 as well as this prize package towards the Snowball Derby.
“It’s certainly going to take the sting out of any expense report for the Snowball Derby,” said Five Flags Speedway’s Tim Bryant while discussing the prize package on the speedway’s “In the Groove” weekly stream. “It’s a very good bonus, financially. There are a lot of tires at the Snowball Derby, and this package includes 16 of them that it takes to run the race."
Currently, 26 teams are entered for the PepperJack Kennels Twin 100s. NASCAR Cup Series competitor William Byron will be racing on Friday night before heading to Pocono Raceway, adding some excitement to the first night of the weekend.
On Friday, the Super Late Models will be joined by the Faith Chapel Outlaws and the Lloyd’s Glass Pure Stocks. The Modifieds of Mayhem will be part of the Saturday racing card along with Story & Bleich Roofing Crown Stocks. Racing will begin at 8 p.m. CT/9 p.m. ET on both nights.
