Featuring Super Late Model racers from both the north and south, the Easter Bunny 150 has become one of the most prestigious annual PASS events. Each year, the race draws a talented field of drivers hoping to celebrate their Easter weekend with a victory at the “Birthplace of NASCAR stars.”
“Ever since we started the Easter Bunny at Hickory in 2006, it has been very special. Super Late Model drivers from all over the county that wanted to be a part of the legend that is Hickory, have helped make the Easter Bunny 150 one of the premier short track events of the spring,” said PASS President Tom Mayberry. “PASS is glad to partner once again with Speed 51 to broadcast this great event to a worldwide audience. Even more drivers are expected to try their hand at this year’s race to get ready for the big MegaMeltdown in November and the chance to win $15,000. If the action at Orange County is any indication, you are definitely going to want to tune into Speed 51.”
