Easter Bunny 150 Set For Hickory
“We’ve been taking some really good cars to the track every week and I think we have a shot to come out with a win in the Easter Bunny,” said Theriault. “I think Hickory suits my driving style coming from the North where you’re trying to conserve and be around at the end and I’m anxious to get to the track to see what I can learn and get better at.”
Grissom, on the other hand, has probably driven more laps at Hickory Motor Speedway than any other track on the circuit. In addition to racing Late Model Stocks there, Grissom made his first career PASS South start at Hickory in 2011 and scored his first series win in last year’s Easter Bunny.
“We set the bar pretty high winning the first Easter Bunny race we ever ran, but Hickory’s such a crapshoot because the track changes so much and you never know what engine combination might take off and run well,” said Grissom. “I’m looking forward to going back, it always a good field of cars, some of the toughest competition you’ll see all year. It’s a neat race and a lot of fun to be in.”
Johanna Long returns to PASS for the first time since 2009 joining a host of drivers attempting to make their first Easter Bunny 150 including Bobby Measmer Jr., Cole Timm, Karl Weber, Canadian driver Steve Laking, Chris Bohlman, Michigan’s Mark Beard and Joseph Mursuli.
Former Easter Bunny 150 winner Preston Peltier will also be back looking to win along with veteran drivers Clay Rogers, Trevor Sanborn, Brandon Ward, Jimmy Doyle, John Batten, Bill Catania and Clete Caywood.
Family racing traditions will continue for Justin Allison, Jared Irvan, and Harrison Burton, who will attempt to do the double by racing in the PASS Pro Late Model race and the Easter Bunny 150.
