Barberville, FL (March 31, 2010) It is that time of year when little girls dress up in pretty dresses. little boys don new pants and shirts and the Easter Bunny makes a visit to all the children. Saturday night at Volusia Speedway Park will see the Easter Bunny make a visit to all the kids with an egg hunt and Easter goodies. As they say, “Here Comes Peter Cottontail, Hopping Down the Bunny Trail” straight to Volusia Speedway Park. Children are more than welcome to bring their Easter baskets for Easter fun and the adults will not be left out either as they will see plenty of Easter racing action with the Budweiser (Quality Brands) Open Wheel Modifieds, Taylor Racing Products Sportsman, Daytona Sportswear Street Stocks, Amsoil Thunder Stocks, and 4 Cylinder Challengers. The Budweiser Open Wheel Modifieds were off last weekend along with the Daytona Sportswear Street Stocks but two weeks ago it was Jamie Carter topping the Modifieds and Trevor Gamble topping the Street Stocks. That was Carter’s first win of the 2010 season and Gamble’s second win. Can they make it repeat wins?? You will have to be there to find out. Although the Daytona Dodge Chrysler Jeep Late Models are off Saturday night at Volusia, it is David Clegg leading the points so far this season over Joe Kump, Jason Davis, Donnie Chappell, and Darell Padett. Going into Saturday night’s action, it is Jamie Carter leading the Budweiser Open Wheel Modifieds over Jeff Matthews, Larry Burkins, newcomer Garret Stewart and James Smith who are tied in fourth and Dale Murray and Kent Corbin who are tied in fifth. Both Matthews and Carter have one win under their belts going into Saturday night’s action. Aaron Barsness won the first two races in the Taylor Racing Products Sportsman division but it was Steve Shead who topped last Saturday night’s feature. Barsness currently leads the points for the Taylor Racing Products Sportsman over last year’s Champion Shaun Daugharty, Paul Shead, Matt McGillivrary and Steve Shead. The Daytona Sportswear Street Stocks have seen Trevor Gamble win both of their feature events this year. Gamble currently is the points leader for the Daytona Sportswear Street Stocks followed by Tim Hughes, Phil Brown, Steve Oldaker and Mark Maresca. If you were one of the lucky fans who were at Volusia last Saturday, you saw the biggest field of Amsoil Thunder Stocks since the division was started in 2009. Scott Mooers made it two in a row for the division and is the current point leader over Randy Strehle, Courteney Eubanks, Kelly Snyder, and Robert Calmes, Jr. The largest field of 4 Cylinder Challengers so far in 2010 put on a great show last Saturday night as Shawn Kosier topped the feature. Kosier had done what few could do last year and beaten Tony Laporta who won the majority of races last year. Kosier currently leads the points over Larry Langston, Scott Sullivan, James Smith, Sr., and RJ Glaser. The Pit Gate will open at 4 pm with the grandstands and drive-in parking opening at 5:30 pm.
