Macon, IL (November 28, 2022) - The Snowball Derby, which attracts racers and fans alike from all over America, is the biggest Super Late Model race in the country. What better way to get the word out about the STARS National Tour than to interact with all of them at this year’s Snowball Derby, December 2-4, at Five Flags Speedway in Pensacola, FL.
The series will be on site in the fan-friendly midway at the famed track in the Panhandle of Florida from Friday through Sunday of the Snowball Derby event. Fans and racers are encouraged to stop by to learn more about the new national Super Late Model series set to debut in 2023. Several series officials will be attending STARS midway location throughout the weekend.
“We want to make sure everyone has the opportunity to stop by and discuss things with us, whether they have a thought regarding a process or rule, or someplace they would like to see us visit in the years to come,” said Joe Balash, Director of Race Operations. “We look forward to seeing everyone at Five Flags Speedway and to meet some new people that we have not had the pleasure of speaking with.”
The schedule for the inaugural series in 2023 is tentatively set to be announced at the PRI Show in Indianapolis, IN (December 8 - 10).
The STARS National Tour will be a 10-race series in 2023, visiting the premier paved short tracks in the United States.
