Super Late Model racers will continue an Easter weekend tradition next Saturday, April 20 during the 14th Annual Easter Bunny 150 at Hickory Motor Speedway. For the fifth consecutive year, the prestigious Pro All Stars Series (PASS) event will be available to watch via a live pay-per-view broadcast on Speed51.com.
As one of the premier events each year for the PASS Super Late Models, the event attracts many of the top competitors from both the north and south. Held each year on the Saturday prior to Easter, racers make their way to the historic North Carolina oval hoping to celebrate the holiday with a victory at “The Birthplace of NASCAR Stars.”
“Living in the heart of PASS North country up here in Maine, I look forward to watching many of the northern drivers clash with the southern drivers during the Easter Bunny 150,” said Speed51.com Editor Brandon Paul. “As someone who has attended this race in person in the past, it’s certainly an event short track fans should put on their bucket list. However, for those fans unable to make the trip to Hickory, we’re happy to partner with PASS to once again offer fans the opportunity to watch the race live on Speed51.”
Speed51.com’s live broadcast of the Easter Bunny 150 will begin at approximately 4:30 p.m. ET with qualifying for the PASS Super Late Models. Following qualifying, the live video stream will shut down until feature racing begins at approximately 7 p.m. ET.
Video tickets for the live broadcast are available for $19.99. Save yourself time on race day by clicking here to purchase your video ticket today. Speed51 Network yearly subscribers will receive a 10% discount on their pay-per-view ticket.
In addition to the main event for Super Late Models, there will also be a 50-lap race for 4 Cylinders that fans will be able to watch prior to the Easter Bunny 150.
The current entry list for the Easter Bunny 150 shows strong representation from drivers north and south of the Mason-Dixon Line, with a nearly even split between the two regions.
Derek Griffith, the defending PASS National Champion, leads the charge for the northern contingent that will include five-time PASS National champion Ben Rowe and two-time PASS North champion Travis Benjamin. Derek Ramstrom, who scored the big Mason-Dixon MegaMeltdown victory in his trip to Hickory last November, will return to the .363-mile oval looking to visit victory lane for a second time.
Leading the charge for the southern contingent will be three-time PASS South champion Matt Craig. He’ll be joined by the likes of former PASS Pro Late Model champion Kodie Conner, Kyle Busch Motorsports driver Amber Balcaen and 2018 Southern Super Series winner Kyle Plott as drivers hoping to keep the bunny in the south.
Of course, many eyes will be on Mr. Easter Bunny himself during Easter weekend at Hickory. No, we’re not talking about the actual Easter Bunny; we’re talking about Preston Peltier, a five-time winner of the Easter Bunny 150.
The 14th Annual Easter Bunny 150 will get underway on Friday, April 19 with a three-hour practice session beginning at 3 p.m. ET. That will lead into race day on Saturday, April 20 with qualifying beginning at 4:30 p.m. ET and racing beginning at 7 p.m. ET.
