The Pro All Stars Series (PASS) Super Late Model National Championship will once again begin with a doubleheader weekend at Hickory Motor Speedway (NC) in the Easter Bunny 150. Currently, 21 teams are entered for the Friday-Saturday event on March 15-16.

The doubleheader format began in 2021, with officials looking to make up the 2020 edition of the event lost due to COVID regulations. As it turned out, the opportunity to give competitors from the Northeastern United States and Canada two races in one weekend proved a popular one, and the pair of 150-lap races have remained since then.

Currently, 21 drivers have filed entries for the Easter Bunny 150 weekend at Hickory. The St. Patrick's Day 150 will take place on Friday, March 15, followed by the Easter Bunny 150 on Saturday, March 16.

Last year, Cole Butcher swept the Easter Bunny weekend with wins in both 150-lap Super Late Model races. He will be back at Hickory looking for more success at 'The Birthplace of the NASCAR Stars' and sharing his ride with brother Jarrett Butcher. Cole will race on Friday night, while Jarrett will take the helm on Saturday.

Speaking of title defenses, Max Cookson claimed both the PASS North and PASS National championships in 2023. He also won the Kulwicki Cup as the 2023 champion of the Kulwicki Driver Development Program. Another former PASS champion, Derek Griffith, has also filed his entry for the event.

An interesting name on the entry list is Derek Kneeland. Kneeland will take part in the Friday portion of Easter Bunny 150 weekend before heading to Bristol Motor Speedway as the spotter for Kyle Busch in the NASCAR Cup Series and Nick Sanchez in the NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series.

Other drivers who won on the PASS National trail in 2023 are entered for the 2024 Easter Bunny weekend. D.J. Shaw was Cookson's closest competition for both championships, including a PASS National win on Milk Bowl weekend at Thunder Road. Trevor Sanborn won at Thompson Speedway Motorsports Park during Icebreaker weekend, while Gabe Brown ended the season with the overall victory at Oxford Plains Speedway in the PASS 400.

D.J. Shaw is a past winner of the Easter Bunny 150, taking the victory in the event in 2014. Another previous winner on the entry list, Ryan Moore, won the Friday portion of the 2022 Easter Bunny weekend. Ben Rowe is also a former event winner, with victories in 2009 and 2016.

The full list of entries to date can be viewed below.

Race fans can watch both nights of the Easter Bunny 150 weekend on RacingAmerica.TV. The Pro All Stars Series will be joined by the Carolina Mini Stock Challenge and Mid-Atlantic Street Stock Championship on both Friday and Saturday night.
