Track Champion in Nashville, Dylan Fetcho Hunts Win at Allen Tuner Pro Late 100 Friday.

Track Champion in Nashville, Fetcho Hunts Wins, Allen Tuner Pro Late Model 100 at 5 Flags    By Chuck Corder  It’s usually all business when Dylan Fetcho and his team of family and friends drive seven hours from Tennessee to Five Flags Speedway.  They’re typically too busy at the famed half-mile asphalt oval—tirelessly working on their Pro Late Model setup—to enjoy the perks Pensacola offers. Not on this trip, though.  When the third Allen Turner PLM 100 wraps up Friday night—win or lose—Fetcho and company will enjoy some wellness time Saturday with a jaunt at the Pensacola Beach.  “Normally, we head out and leave. But we’re getting some beach time in this time,” said Fetcho, the reigning Pro Late Model track champion at his native Nashville Fairgrounds Speedway.  First up, though, is turning in a strong performance Friday night at Five Flags. Fetcho sits sixth in a hotly contested points race for the Allen Turner PLM [...]

Milton’s Merritt Mashes Way to Demo Derby Title; Outlaws’ Finch Goes Flag-to-Flag in Buggy Worx 50 

Milton’s Merritt Mashes Way to Demo Derby Title; Outlaws’ Finch Goes Flag-to-Flag in Buggy Worx 50    By Chuck Corder  Dylan Merritt lived up to his self-anointed nickname.  “Dr. Derby,” as it read in raggedy white paint along the side of his torn-up Mercury Grand Marquis, was the last car running and delivering massive shots to win the Demolition Derby and $1,500 on Friday at Five Flags Speedway.  The annual spectacle brought throngs of fans, who filled the stands to the brim. They were on their feet from the Derby’s beginning to its bitter end as 10 clunkers capped a fantastic evening of racing at Five Flags by trashing the place.  Each collision was followed by echoes of approval and a desire for more from the full house.  Merritt sealed the win when he smushed Nathalie Ziniewicz into the inside wall and reduced her car by one-third.  Merritt, of Milton, climbed atop his victorious car and filled his [...]

Boyett Bouncing Back in 2021, Hunting Down Track Championships in Two Classes

Boyett Bouncing Back in 2021, Hunting Down Track Championships in Two Classes at Five Flags    By Chuck Corder  Logan Boyett has wheeled just about anything imaginable around Five Flags Speedway.  But, for all Boyett’s wins and championships he has celebrated and all the crashes and challenges he has endured at the famed half-mile asphalt oval, the 31-year-old Pensacola driver knows his lane.  And it is not behind the wheel of a Demolition Derby car.  “I have never participated in a Demolition Derby and I definitely don’t have a desire to do so,” Boyett said. “And that’s only because I don’t know how the people don’t damage their necks and not much support in the cars. Heck, if I sleep wrong, I need to go to the chiropractor.”  While Boyett bowed out gracefully, there will still be a dozen or so junkyard specials Friday night at Five Flags for the track’s annual Demolition Derby. The winning [...]

Chandler Smith Wins, Best Overall 2 Night Performance, -By Chuck Corder

Michles & Booth Twin 100s: Chandler Smith Exacts Revenge on Night 2, Cashes in on $15K at 5 Flags    By Chuck Corder  No one made it rain Saturday night at Five Flags Speedway as hoped, but someone certainly cashed in on several major achievements on Night 2 of the Michles & Booth Twin 100s.  Chandler Smith was not going to be denied an historical victory in a second consecutive Super Late Model race. Twenty-four hours earlier, the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series driver led 94 laps in the Universal Fabricators 100 only to finish a heart-wrenching runner-up to Bubba Pollard.  The 19-year-old Smith left no doubt in the Michles & Booth 100 on Saturday. He collected $15,000 for earning the win and posting the weekend’s best average finish.   “I’ve really been having my faith tested the last few months,” said Smith, who has endured a stretch of bad fortune behind the wheel of [...]

A BIG Blizzard Win for Bubba

Michles & Booth Twin 100s: Bubba Blasts Off in Blizzard Series, Wins Universal Fabricators 100     By Chuck Corder  At 34, Bubba Pollard has penned quite the legacy at Five Flags Speedway.  Short-tracking racing’s G.O.A.T is as ingrained to the famed half-mile oval as the asphalt that cover its four turns and straightaways. His now-23 career wins in the Deep South Cranes Blizzard Series and four Super Late Model track championships continue to endear him to the Five Flags faithful, who roar every time his name blares through the track speakers before, during, or after a race.  Pollard wrote another page-turning chapter Friday in his rich autobiography at Pensacola’s high banks on opening night of the Michles & Booth Twin 100s.   The man affectionately known as “Redneck Jesus,” pulled off a miraculous Blizzard Series and Southern Super Series victory in the Universal Fabricators 100. Pollard plodded his way from a starting spot of 17th in [...]

A New Look for # 26, Bubba Eager to ‘Start Over’

New car and T & M Ranch Sponsor, Bubba Eager to ‘Start Over’ at Five Flags for Michles & Booth Twin 100s    By Chuck Corder  Bubba Pollard has endured an unconventional 2021.  But any rumors of his demise have been greatly exaggerated.  In fact, the all-time winningest driver in Deep South Cranes Blizzard Series history with 22 victories and four track championships for Super Late Models is returning to his roots for this week’s Michles and Booth Twin 100s at Five Flags Speedway.  Pollard has run an abbreviated schedule this season as he tends to maintenance, upgrades, and overall promotion of his family’s 3/8-mile dirt track in his native Senoia, Ga., which his grandfather built in 1969.  This week, though, Pollard is removing his promoter’s cap and bringing two new Port City Race Cars SLM to Pensacola’s high banks for the Universal Fabricators 100 on Friday and Michels & Booth 100 on Saturday.  “It’s kinda nice [...]

California Driver Jeremy Doss Set To Run the Twin Blizzards

Story by Speed51 In 2021, California ace driver Jeremy Doss and his race team decided to put all the focus of their Super Late Model program on the goal of winning the Snowball Derby. To accomplish this, they circled the key races that make up the ‘Road to the Snowball Derby’, the Deep South South Cranes Blizzard Series, the four Super Late Model races run during the racing season at the Derby’s home, Five Flags Speedway.     Also a part of the 2021 Southern Super Series presented by Sunoco, the first Blizzard Series event of the season held in late June at the Pensacola, Florida half-mile was the first half of a Southern Super Series Friday-Saturday doubleheader with Montgomery Motor Speedway in Alabama.   Choosing to compete in both races, Doss came out of the gate strong with a third-place finish at Five Flags, followed by a fourth-place finish at Montgomery.
