LUCAMA, NC – Saturday’s Easter Bunny 100-lap Limited Late Model race at Southern National Motorsports Park will be run under a segmented race format similar to what is used in NASCAR racing.
The first two segments of the Easter Bunny 100, which are sponsored by Mike Darne Racing, will run for 30 laps each while the final stage will run for 40 laps. Following each of the first two stages, which will pay $50-to-win, a five-minute segment break will take place allowing teams to make adjustments.
“Making the race a segmented race will be exciting for the fans watching in the stands,” Southern National Motorsports Park general manager Charlie Hansen said. “With each segment paying $50 to the winner, it gives the drivers something to race for in the middle of the race. Hopefully, the fans and the drivers will enjoy this.”
The first segment will run through lap 30, followed by a five-minute break. Then, the second segment will run through lap 60, followed by another five-minute segment break. After that, the final 40 lap segment will be run under normal race conditions.
The Easter Bunny 100 will be the final event on the March 31st racing program, which also features racing for the Mini-Stocks, Legends, Bandoleros, Any Cars and the USAC Eastern Midgets. The green flag flies at 2pm.
