Chase Elliott initially won the 46th annual Snowball Derby from Five Flags Speedway in Pensacola, FL but has been disqualified. Erik Jones, who finished second has been declared the winner following post race inspections.
The most prestigious late model race went to Jones again after 300 laps around the 1/2 mile oval and a tech inspection.
Rounding out the top five were Grant Enfinger, Austin Theriault, Hunter Robbins and John Hunter Nemehek.
Jones has now won the Snowball Derby the last two years. Elliott, who was disqualified, won the race in 2011. The reason for Elliott’s disqualification was a prohibited tungsten part. The driver apologized on twitter for the mistake of his team.
