It was a very long and stressful day three here at Five Flags Speedway in Pensacola, Florida as the final four spots were set for the 55th Annual Snowball Derby. When the weekend began, there were 56 drivers gunning for only 30 spots on qualifying day on Friday. With the top 30 being locked in, the rest of the field was relegated to the last chance qualifying race that was early in the night on Saturday.


Racing gives the highest of highs, and the lowest of lows.


For Preston Peltier, Derek Kraus, Jesse Love, and Michael House they will have the chance to win Sunday's Snowball Derby. For Brad Keselowski, he will have to try again next year as he hopes to make the field in 2023.
