Kyle Busch has won the prestigious Snowball Derby, which is contested each year at Five Flags Speedway in Pensacola, Florida, twice before in three starts. It looks like Busch may be looking for a third Derby win in 2019, according a tweet he sent out Monday morning.

The 2019 Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series Champion Tweeted a photo of a Kyle Busch Motorsports super latemodel at Five Flags Speedway with the caption, “Doing a little work today.”

Busch, 34, first ran the Snowball Derby in 2009 in a race that he would win. In 2012, Busch led 15 laps in the event before settling for third. This was the race where he discovered Erik Jones. And in 2017, Busch won the event again.

While he isn’t on the official entry list, just yet, it is looking like Busch is ready to chase another win in Pensacola.

The 52nd annual Snowball Derby will be contested on December 8, 2019.
