Erik's Diary Presented by Paragon Corvette Reproductions
Speed 51 Video
The entire Snowball Derby and Snowflake 100 week came down to one night - Saturday night - for Erik Jones and the Paragon Corvette Reproductions Chevrolet team. While the end result wasn't quite what they had hoped, Jones still held his head high after the Snowflake 100.
Erik Jones had a relatively easy Friday at Five Flags Speedway. The pressure was on the Super Late Models to get qualified into the Snowball Derby Friday, but Jones and his team focused on getting their #4 Chevy Pro Late Model ready for a big day of qualifying and racing on Saturday for the Snowflake 100.
Even though Erik Jones couldn't swap some paint at Fast Eddie's Snowball Showdown go-kart race in Pensacola due to his age, he and his team had a good Thursday at Five Flags as they prepared for the Snowflake 100 on Saturday
It's been a busy 24 hours or so in Pensacola, Florida for Erik Jones. The 15-year-old driver from Michigan has nothing but high hopes for the Snowflake 100 this year. Check out what he's been up to and his feelings on this year's Snowflake event at Five Flags.
