About Five Flags Speedway

Five Flags Speedway was first constructed in 1953. Early in its history, Five Flags Speedway was the home of multiple NASCAR Cup Series events, featuring drivers like Lee Petty and the Flock Brothers. Tom Dawson purchased the track and in one of his first moves created the Snowball Derby event, which first ran in 1968. Over the years, the Snowball Derby grew in reputation and prestige, cementing Five Flags Speedway as one of the premier short track destinations. In 2004, the Bryant family took over operations of the race track, a role they maintain to this day. The track continues to host an eclectic schedule of events that culminates in the annual Snowball Derby.
