Easter Bunny 150 scheduled Saturday afternoon at South Boston Speedway

The engines will fire up for the second straight weekend at South Boston Speedway on Saturday, March 31, for the running of the Easter Bunny 150. The event will have a special starting time of 2 p.m.

As part of the Easter Bunny 150, an Easter egg hunt for children will also be held at 1p.m.

America's Hometown Track kicked off its 50th anniversary season last Saturday with action-packed racing and the same can be expected once again this weekend.

"We had a great field of cars and a large turnout of fans," South Boston Speedway General Manager Cathy Rice said. "Everyone is excited to have the new season underway at South Boston Speedway.

"We are looking for another great group of competitors this weekend," Rice added. "And, the weather looks like it will be fabulous. The forecast is calling for sunny skies and temperatures in the 70's."

The featured attraction of Saturday's NASCAR Whelen All American Series race program will be a 150-lap race for the drivers in the Barkhouser Late Model Stock Car Division.

Last weekend, 24 of the best Late Model Stock Car drivers in the region lined up for the season-opening race and Wayne Ramsey of Amherst, Va. emerged as the victor.

Also slated Saturday will be twin 50-lap races for the Limited Sportsman Division, along with events for the Budweiser Pure Stock Division and the touring Southern Vintage Modified Series.

Defending champion Bruce Anderson of South Boston, Va. claimed a victory in the initial Limited Sportsman Division race last week at South Boston Speedway and Chuck Watkins of Stem, N.C., the 2006 champion in the Pure Stock Division, was also victorious in season-opening action.

Pit gates will open Saturday day at 9 a.m. with practice for all divisions running from 10:30 a.m. until noon. Grandstand gates will open at noon and qualifying time trials will get underway at 12:45 p.m.

Adult admission for the race will be $8 up to 1:30 p.m. and $10 after that. Youth, ages 10-15, will be admitted for $5 and children under the age of 10 will be admitted free with a paid adult.
