Chandler Smith Wins Snowball Derby

Chandler Smith moved then-leader Derek Thorn with eight laps remaining and drove away from the 37-car field to win the 54th Annual Snowball Derby presented by Hooters.

The standing-room only crowd at Five Flags Speedway delivered a mixed response of cheers and boos when the 19-year-old Smith climbed out of his car and thrust his arms into the air in a Victory Lane celebration.

Thorn, the Derby polesitter for the third consecutive year, led every lap of the 300-lap Super Late Model race until Smith’s No. 26 pushed his No. 43 up the track on Lap 292 to create enough room to make the defining pass.
