We hope this finds you and your family in good health during these extraordinary times in our community, our state, and our nation.

We are deeply appreciative of our Federal, State, and Local Leaders who are guiding us thru these uncharted waters, and also to all the Medical Professionals and First Responders who are putting their own health at risk for the benefit of others.

This wall mural, created by local artist Ronsen Stewart, will now greet fans upon entrance to Five flags Speedway. On the side of what will now be known as the Tool Expo Family Grandstand, this work of art showcases the most dominant driver in Snowball Derby history, Rich Bickle, with recognition to four former Derby winners who hail from here in Pensacola. The brainchild of Tool Expo's Hugh Campbell and Pensacola store manager Kathy Faust, the painting also features the most recognizable face in all of motorsports and one time Snowball Derby competitor, Dale Earnhardt looking down from the clouds.
The postponement of the Pensacola 200 Weekend Race Festivities was an agonizing decision for all involved in the organization of the event. Months of preparation by multiple parties had us optimistic that we were in for some fantastic racing. We do feel however, that the well being of our Fans, Competitors, and Employees far exceeds our need to run a race. In all facets of our operation, we always make it our mission to error on the side of safety. We have faith in local, state, and federal authorities to act in the same manner. We apologize to everyone inconvenienced by the postponement of this event. A make-up date will be announced soon, and we’ll make every effort to accommodate the needs of our Fans.
By Chuck Corder It was love at first sight for Steve Sidner. Who can blame him? The famed half-mile oval with its delicious curves and perfect asphalt imperfections is a thing of beauty. On any given night, she can make dreams come true or crush them. But, Five Flags Speedway has always been a blast to Sidner. His childhood was spent at the track every chance he could get. He sold Coca-Colas in the stands as a teenager during the 1980s and has never missed a Snowball Derby since 1979. When sons, Dayton and Brandin Sidner, told their old man they wanted to race a few years ago, Steve was emptying pockets and turning wrenches in the pits every Friday night. Steve Sidner will write his next and, perhaps, biggest chapter to his Five Flags story beginning Friday night. Sidner will compete in the Vores Compact Touring Series (VCTS), presented by Mercer County Electric, [...]
