Pensacola, FL - The weeks leading up to the 42nd Annual Snowball Derby are now down to days as our Max Force team puts the finishing touches on our G-Force Ford Fusion. Midnight left the track 2 weeks ago ready to race and the team has spent the last 2 weeks going over every nut, bolt and system on our car. Extra attention to detail is needed because the competition level is so tough to get in the Derby. This year's Derby already has over 140 late model entries led by NASCAR's Kyle Busch. The Moose will be trying to make the 34 car field in only his 2nd Late Model start at Pensacola's 5 Flags Speedway.
A new setup from chassis builder and former Derby Winner, Augie Grill, based on our test results have been installed and the team is ready to load the hauler on Monday night for a Tuesday night delivery to 5 Flags Speedway. The team will spend Wednesday going through technical inspection with practice beginning on Thursday.
Thomas: "I know I keep saying this is the best car we've ever taken out of our shop and it's going to have to be to get in this field. I really feel like our 1 car all volunteer team from Mobile has a shot at making the race. We've got a couple of little things left to do but we're ready to go, its gonna be hard to wait until Thursday to get on the track."
