The starting lineup has been set for the 54th Snowball Derby at Five Flags Speedway.

Derek Thorn qualified on the pole for a record setting third consecutive season over Chandler Smith, Corey Heim, Casey Roderick and Erik Jones.

Jace Hansen, Derek Kraus, Carson Hocevar and Brandon Watson raced their way into the main event via the last chance race after failing to make the speed on qualifying speed. The legendary Rich Bickle was awarded the 37th starting position as a promoter’s option in his final start as a stock car race. It’s the culmination of a career that has produced five victories in the Super Late Model special.

Sunday’s Snowball Derby will go green at 1pm CT (2pm ET) and will be broadcast live on Racing America powered by Speed51.TV.
