Two drivers from the Mobile area are preparing to compete in the ARCA 200 at 5 Flags in March. Grant Enfinger from Fairhope has been a regular in the NASCAR Truck Series, and plans to be a competitor here. Meanwhile, Conner Okrzesik from Grand Bay Alabama has a new car for his run. The teen driving whiz started 2019 off with a big win at the Super Late Model race at Cordell Georgia when he beat Kyle Busch. Both bring experience from previous Snowball Derby runs. ARCA opens its 2019 series in Daytona in February, then moves to 5 Flags for its next event on March 9th. Reserved seats are still available. Call 850-941-4343 to select your seat.

Because of weather concerns for Saturday (motorcycles don't do well in the rain), the event has been moved to the next available open date, Sunday April 7th. Will start at noon. Detailed schedule will come later.
Ronnie Sanders provided the fast cars, Casey Roderick had the moxie and talent. Together they fashioned 2018 into a year to long remember. The Georgia duo turned their skills into success by sweeping the championships in all 3 arenas. The Deep South Blizzard Series for Super Late Models. The Allen Turner Series for Pro Late Models. The Southern Super Series for Super Lates. Plus Casey forged a relationship with Miss Snowball Derby Emalee Hodge, the co-ed who presented him with the trophies at each of his 5 Flags wins. Now that's a great season! Watch video recap of Snowball Derby and 2018 race action by Speed51 TV at this link: https://youtu.be/BkkEu58DKC0
