As of fall 2014, we are missing full results to the first two Snowball Derbys in 1968 and 1969. Those missing races are considered the "Holy Grail" of our site. If you have any leads on how to find those results, please get in touch with us.

Our partner site Speed51 will be the live coverage partner of the Snowball Derby for the 14th straight year. The Third Turn's staff will be part of the coverage for the 4th straight year. Make plans to join us at the track or on Speed51.com
