44th Annual Snowball Derby Results

The DDP Team had a busy but exciting week in Pensacola, FL once arriving to 5 Flags Speedway on Wednesday.  The team battled carburetor
trouble during practice.  Once that was fixed Dennis turned a great lap in qualifying guaranteeing him a spot in the big race on Sunday.  Sunday brought some challenges with "live" pit stops under green which the team is not used to but did well.  Dennis battled a loose car and at one point tangled with another car causing some body damage to the right side/rear of the car.  During one of the pit stops one of the wheel studs got loose when replacing the tire (possibly a result of the previous accident) as he drove down pit road it broke the brake caliper off.  The 42 was forced to retire for the day and was pushed off of pit road.  Although there was disappointment it was well worth the trip because each time is a learning experience.

DDP Motorsports would like to extend a big THANKS to all sponsors, crew, friends, familiy, fans... without them I would not have been given this opportunity.  I also appreciate how far all of you traveled to help out.  We had a big group from Wisconsin that were able to make it down this year.  Also a big Thanks to Speed51 for the AMAZING race coverage which kept my family and fans in Wisconsin posted throughout the weekend!
