Five Flags Speedway
Cash Increased For Pole in 5 Local Snowball Divisions
While much of the focus during the Snowball Derby is on Late Model competitors, there is a full week of racing leading up to Sunday’s Super Late Model showcase. Thanks to Mike and Megan Riordan with Appalachian Moccasin and Morgan Mountain Rifle Sling, those drivers will have money on the line in qualifying.
The Modifieds of Mayhem pole will be worth $700, with $600 going to quick time for the Outlaws. The Pro Truck pole award will be $575, with $450 up for grabs in Sportsman qualifying and $350 for the Pure Stock fast time. Pole awards across all divisions saw an increase when the Snowball Derby Preview was shortened by inclement weather on Saturday, November 19.
After a conversation with Five Flags Speedway’s Tim Bryant, Riordan chose to spotlight the grassroots competitors with the pole award money.
“Especially Derby week, there’s not as much interest in the lower classes,” said Riordan. “They’re all thinking about the Snowflake and the Snowball Derby. So I said I’ll put my name on those lower classes, and they’ll be appreciative since they don’t get as much money.”
Morgan Mountain Rifle Sling will present the pole awards for the Pure Stock and Sportsman races during Snowball Derby Week. Mike’s Leathercraft is a licensed seller of Morgan Mountain Rifle Slings.
Appalachian Moccasin is presenting the pole awards for the Pro Trucks, Modifieds of Mayhem and Outlaws.
