Champion Racing Association officials have announced that they will once again award a bonus to a series team competing in the 44th Annual Snowball Derby at Five Flags Speedway on December 4th. Series officials will award a $1000 credit towards 2012 series memberships and entries if a competing team with the CRA Super Series or CRA Southern Tour during the 2011 season can win the Snowball Derby. If a CRA competitor does not win the Derby, then the officials will award a 2012 series membership and one event entry to the highest finishing CRA affiliated team.

In addition this year CRA officials will award a bonus to a series team competing in the Allen Turner Hyundai Snowflake 100 on Saturday, December 3rd of Snowball Derby Weekend. Series officials will award a $500 credit towards 2012 series memberships and entries if a competing team with the JEGS/CRA All-Stars Tour Presented by GM Performance Parts during the 2011 season can win the Allen Turner Hyundai Snowflake 100. If a CRA competitor does not win the Snowflake, then the officials will award a 2012 series membership to the highest finishing CRA affiliated team.

“We wanted to add a little something special for the teams that have supported us in 2011 that will be competing in the Snowball Derby and in the Snowflake 100 this year,” remarked R.J. Scott, Managing Partner of Champion Racing Association. “We have the utmost respect for Tim Bryant and his entire staff at Five Flags Speedway for the great job they have done in building the Snowball Derby into one of the greatest short track events in the country. This event is the premier late model event in the country each year, and we are glad to have several of our competitors competing in it again this year!”
