Johanna Long won the 43rd Annual Snowball Derby held Sunday, Dec. 5, at the Five Flags Speedway in Pensacola, Fla. Long becomes the first female to claim victory since 1994, when the race was won by Tammy Jo Kirk. Long qualified in Sunday's race in a very strong fourth position.

In 2009, Johanna was the pole winner at the 42nd Annual Snowball Derby. Kyle Busch won the 300-lap race from a third-place start.

Johanna was the first to take the checkered flag Sunday as she held off Charlotte's Landon Cassill.

At 18, Johanna Long has just finished her rookie season in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series.

Congratulations, Johanna!
