Five Flags Speedway is a paved ½-mile auto racing oval in Pensacola, Florida.

It opened in 1953 and is located on Pine Forest Road. It is christened after the nickname of Pensacola—“City of Five Flags.”

It runs several local classes during the regular racing season (March – October). These classes include Super Late Models, Pro Late Models, Super Stocks, Sportsman, and Bombers. The races are usual held on Friday nights bi-weekly. The track has also hosted many regional touring series.

Five Flags hosted a Grand National (now Sprint Cup) race the year that the track opened. The race was won by Herb Thomas driving his Fabulous Hudson Hornet.

The track’s signature event is the Snowball Derby, run every December since 1968. The Snowball Derby is considered by many to be the most prestigious Super Late Model race in America.
