2017 Miss Snowball Derby

50th Anniversary

Thursday, November 16th, Phineas Phogg’s 7pm

One of the traditions of the Snowball Derby at Five Flags Speedway is the Miss Snowball Derby Pageant that takes place each year leading up to the big race.  This year, the pageant will be held on Thursday, November 16th at a brand-new venue of the Seville Quarter in historic downtown Pensacola, FL.  This year’s pageant holds extra meaning as Five Flags Speedway celebrates the 50 th anniversary of the most prestigious Super Late Model race in the country.  Coincidentally, Seville Quarter – the location for this year’s pageant – is also celebrating their 50 th anniversary this year.

Ladies 18 years of age or older are eligible to compete in the 2017 Miss Snowball Derby contest and females worldwide are encouraged to compete.  The pageant presents a great opportunity for young women to represent their hometown and express their love of racing at the biggest pavement short track race of the season.  The women will compete in evening wear and casual wear to determine who will be awarded the $500 prize.

Miss Snowball Derby’s responsibilities include representing Five Flags Speedway at as many Snowball Derby functions as possible, as well as being present for all victory lane photos, pre-race ceremonies and fan activities throughout the 50th Annual Snowball Derby.  Winning contestants will reign for the term of one year by making personal appearances, together and as a group, representing Five Flags Speedway.  Story courtesy of
