For a brief moment on Sunday in the Snowball Derby, it looked as if John Hunter Nemechek had been holding back and was poised to steal a sure victory away from a dominant Christopher Bell.
He had taken the lead from Bell on the restart with 23 laps to go but smoke began to pillow out from under his Chevrolet. The smoke led to a large fire and the defending Derby champion was hurriedly forced to escape to pit road before it could cause a caution. As a result of the apparent mechanical failure, Nemechek fell from the lead to 21st and six laps down. Mon, Dec 7, 2015 12:23:00 PM

John Hunter Nemechek rebounded from a disqualification in Snowball Derby qualifying in grand fashion by winning the Allen Turner Snowflake 100 on Saturday night at Five Flags Speedway.

By virtue of starting on the front row, Nemechek was able to avoid the carnage of the first half of the race, including a multi-car accident that ended the night of several would-be contenders. The crash ultimately involved Martin Latulippe, Riley Thornton, Derek Thorn, Derrick Griffin, Brad May, Jake Kruger and Anthony Cataldi, thinning the field of challengers for the young NEMCO Motorsports ace.
