I can hear the rumble of their engines
I can feel the vibrations flowing through the air and into my body.
My blood is rushing through my veins.
My heart is pounding with excitement.
Snowball Derby season has arrived.
I live close to Five Flags Speedway, so it is not unusual to hear the roar of the engines as drivers hit the pavement to practice every chance they can.
I always look forward to this premier event, The Snowball Derby.
It falls on December 4 – 8, 2013, but there is plenty of pre-race excitement.
The first week of December, the annual 300 mile super late model stock car race is held at Pensacola’s Five Flags Speedway, and has been since 1968.
It is known for attracting some high profile drivers. A few of the past winners are Kyle Bush, Darryl Waltrip, Dick Trickle, Steve Wallace, Chase Elliot and Pensacola’s very own Joanna Long.
It was a little breezy and chilly, 60 degrees.
Now, just wait a minute. Don’t get your panties in an uproar. I know some of you are wearing down coats and waterproof boots, battling through the wind and snow.
For me, if there is a breeze, if the sun isn’t shining on me and it’s under 75 degrees, I get chilly. I know I am a wuss, that’s why I live in Florida.
I want 80+ every day – shorts, t-shirt and flip-flop weather.
If you like what you see, why don’t you follow me?
