Johanna Long, a NASCAR driver and former Snowball Derby Winner, will greet fans and sign autographs on Dec. 2 at Uncle Bob's Self Storage in Pensacola, Fla., Long’s hometown. Attendees can pose for photos with Long and her race car and get their personal memorabilia signed from 6 to 8 p.m. Nash 102.7 FM radio host Lindsey Marie will broadcast live from the event and give away prizes.
The community event at 5060 North Palafox St. will also feature a craft table where young fans can make crowns for Long, who has an affinity for the headwear, according to an Uncle Bob’s press release. “I’ve always loved crowns, and I appreciate when I get the chance to share that love with others,” Long said. “I can’t wait to see what all the creative boys and girls come up with!”
“Pensacola loves Johanna Long, and we can’t wait to have her and all the racing fans visit us,” said Greg Sepulveda, area manager for Uncle Bob’s. “Given all the activities and things to check out, this will be a fun and memorable event.”
Long currently competes in the NASCAR Nationwide series. She won the 2010 Snowball Derby and became the youngest female driver to compete in the NASCAR Nationwide series in 2012.
