My Adventures – The Snowball Derby at Five Flags Speedway

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.

Soooooo, if you are ever in Pensacola during the first week of December, stop in to Five Flags Speedway for The Snowball Derby.

    • I love it. I have lived in numerous places and have been fortunate to watch and even work for some fantastic races – from drag races, to Nascar, to IHRA and NHRA, to dirt and motorcycles – I love them all.

    • The vibrations rumbling through my body make me feel alive. Gets my endorphins racing, right along with the cars. lol

  1. How fun! And I’m with you one hundred percent on 80 degree weather, shorts, t-shirts, and flip flops! I’m not a fan of winter. (unless I’m in a snowbound cabin in the Sierra Nevada Mountains with a handsome hero–I mean my hubby!)

    • I’m with you all the way. A snowbound cabin, all warm and snuggly, is not a bad way to pass the time. lol

    • Had a beautiful day today. I saw it got as high as 73. Not bad for December third. ^_^
