Gragson Brings Home a Top 10 Finish at 49th Annual Snowball Derby

After two days of grueling rain delays, the green flag finally dropped on the 49th running of the Snowball Derby winter classic in Pensacola, Florida. Las Vegas superstar Noah Gragson managed to avoid several multi-car pile ups to bring home a very respectable 9th place finish. 16-year-old Christian Eckes, a JR Motorsports developmental driver, pulled a late-race pass on John Hunter Nemecheck to capture the checkered flag.

The separation of just 0.017 of a second is the closest finish in Snowball Derby history. The ability to squeak out a win over Nemecheck came as a total surprise to the young driver. “Oh my God, I can’t believe it. I can’t believe it. This is crazy!” said Eckes, as he exited the car in Victory Lane. The surprising win came as an even bigger surprise due to Eckes not having the best car all night and only being scored for leading one lap (the final lap).
