Birthday Boy Dye Gets A Gift In Derby Qualifying

PENSACOLA, Fla. – Snowball Derby rookie Daniel Dye told SPEED SPORT on Thursday prior to opening practice that his first goal was simply to make the race. The racing gods laughed back and granted Dye’s birthday wish, with his No. This race last year ended up being a wild card [at the finish].”. Dye had good reason to be wary after seeing the closing laps of the 2019 Snowball Derby, where frontstretch pile-ups late in the going wreaked havoc on many unsuspecting drivers. “You just have to be there at the end, and have a good piece,” he said. Dye and the rest of the super late model field will have one last shot to adjust on their race cars when Happy Hour practice for the 53rd Snowball Derby hits the track at 11:45 a.m. CT Saturday morning.
