For several local racers, there’s only one thing to focus on going into this weekend’s racing events at Five Flags Speedway in Pensacola, Fla.
That’s winning the 41st annual Snowball Derby, one of the most coveted events in short track racing.
It’s a race that every short track ace has wanted to win, with winners such as Darrell Waltrip, Donnie Allison, Pete Hamilton, Jody Ridley, Ronnie Sanders, Butch Lindley and Ted Musgrave having visited victory lane.
Former Jefferson native Ryan Crane won the Snowflake 100, a Pro Late Model event that leads up to Sunday’s Derby, last year, and this year, wants to add his name to the winner’s list in the big show.
