#17 Snowflake 100- PLM
Elliott Wins the Snowflake 100 Against Great Odds
Some of the toughest challenges in auto racing can come in the technical inspection shed, and at no place is that more true than Five Flags Speedway in Pensacola, FL. But on Saturday night, Chase Elliott and the Aaron’s Dream Team prevailed on the track and in inspection to win the Snowflake 100, a companion event to the prestigious Snowball Derby. Elliott’s Ford passed pre-race inspection, but after scraping the track through turn two on his qualifying lap, his front valance didn’t meet specifications, so he had to run a last-chance race to make the starting field for the 100-lap Snowflake. No problem there though, as Elliott won the prelim to start 31st in the feature.
