20-year-old NASCAR driver Noah Gragson won the 51st annual Snowball Derby over the weekend.  After the race he went in for a kiss with the Snowball Derby model and struck out on live TV.

Kyle Busch Motorsports’ Noah Gragson took the lead with six laps left of the Super Late Model showcase and successfully held off competitors Ty Majeski and Jeff Choquette to achieve victory.

During his post-race celebration at Pensacola’s Five Flags Speedway, the 20-year-old stock car racer was painfully rejected when he tried to kiss a Snowball Derby model in a now-viral video.

Fellow drivers Corey LaJoie, Conor Daly and Justin Bonsignore couldn’t help but roast the Gragson for creating such an incredibly awkward moment. 

It turns out it was just a momentarily setback.  Gragson did eventually get the kiss from the model.  Winner’s win.

Congratulations on the big weekend.
