Jones Wins Snowball After Elliott Fails Inspection
Erik Jones won the Snowball Derby at Five Flags Speedway on Sunday in Georgia.
Jones’ victory came after Chase Elliott, who was originally credited with the victory, was disqualified after his car failed post race inspection.
The victory was the second straight for Jones in the Snowball.
Grant Enfinger finished second, followed by Austin Theriault , Hunter Robbins and John Hunter Nemechek.
David Rogers, Kyle Benjamin, Ross Kenseth, Derek Thorn and Donnie Wilson completed the top-10.
Elliott dominated the race, leading more than 230 laps of the 300-lap event. His No. 9 Chevrolet was discovered to have tungsten, a prohibited type of weight. Race officials say the rule is designed to keep costs down.
