Easter Egg-stravaganza Ushers In Holiday Weekend At HPT.Com Speedway (Kids 12 & Under FREE)

Topeka, KS -There is nothing like a holiday weekend to get fans excited. Extra days off from school or work are just a few things people will enjoy. This Saturday night at Heartland Park Topeka fans will have another reason to celebrate!

The BriggsAuto.Com Super Saturday Showdown Series will host their Easter Egg-stravaganza this Saturday, April 23, at HPT.Com Speedway. Spectator will open up at 5:30 p.m., hot laps begin at 6:15 p.m. and the racing action goes green at 7:00 p.m.

The Easter Egg-stravaganza packs a lot of fun for the kids in attendance. All season long Heartland Park has implemented a KIDS ZONE. This has been a well received addition. This week the Kid Zone will have coloring contests, egg hunt, bouncy houses and a special appearance from the Easter Bunny!

Another big promotion for this weekend is that kids 12 and under will get in absolutely FREE to watch and participate in this week's races.

Fans will also be excited to know that the exciting racing action will continue this weekend. The Washburn Tech Modifieds, White Line CDL B Mods, Super 8 @ Forbes Landing Factory Stocks and Casey's General Store Pure Stocks will be competing a complete show.

Last week extra races were held as HPT.Com Speedway officials had to complete 3 feature races that were rained out from the previous week. Winners from the makeup features were Darron Fuqua (Modified), Gerald Wahwahsuck (Factory Stock) and Bryan Rigsby (B Mod).

In the Modified feature from last week Darron Fuqua not only won the makeup feature, he also pulled down the 2nd feature as well. Fuqua was the only driver to double up on the night.

Dave Samuels won the Factory Stock feature in the nightcap. The win was the 2nd on the season for Samuels, the track champion from 2010.

After a hard wreck in the early feature, Mike Higley was able to recover and return to win the 2nd feature in the B Mod division.

It was a repeat winner in the Pure Stock feature as Zach Henrey rolled to an easy win.

This Saturday's action will be the 4th race in the BriggsAuto.Com Super Saturday Showdown Series points chase.
