The first 200 youth entering the gates will receive free chocolate Easter Bunnies as handed out by not only the Easter Bunny himself but also by sprint car drivers Doug Esh and Daryn Pittman beginning at 4 PM.
Following warm up practice laps, an Easter Egg scramble for kids age groups of 0 – 3, 4 – 7 and 8 – 12 will be held in the infield. Eggs filled with candy, prizes and even cash will be up for grabs.
