Heavy rains and threatening weather put a damper on Saturday’s Snowball Derby action at Five Flags Speedway in Pensacola, Florida.

After significant downfall, localized flooding and tornado watches in and around the Pensacola area on Saturday, race officials pulled the plug on all on-track activities, pushing the day’s scheduled events to next weekend.

That moves the Pro Late Model Snowflake 100, the Modifieds of Mayhem feature and the Pro Truck feature to Saturday, December 8.

Meanwhile, all systems are go for Sunday’s 51st running of the Snowball Derby 300 lap Super Late Model feature, with Harrison Burton starting on the pole. The Last Chance Race, scheduled originally for Saturday night, will now roll off at noon CST on Sunday, with the top four finishers transferring to the main event.

The green flag for the Derby is scheduled for 2 pm CST.

Sunday’s forecast for the Pensacola area calls for possible showers in the morning, clearing by the afternoon.
