Peltier Won’t Be Denied At Hickory


HICKORY, N.C. – Preston Peltier took the lead from Trevor Sanborn with 10 laps to go and took an aggressive stand on two late race restarts to win the eighth annual Easter Bunny 150 Saturday night at Hickory Motor Speedway.

The win was Peltier’s fourth Pro All Stars Series (PASS) South Super Late Model triumph at Hickory and he becomes the first driver to win the Spring Classic more than once.

“It seems to be when the shoe’s on the other foot it’s okay and when I do it it’s not. We’re here to pay the bills and that’s what we did tonight,” said Peltier referring to the late race restarts with Sanborn. “For me a win is a win and I don’t care where it is. It feels good to be in victory lane, maybe a week from now it’ll sink in a little bit. I just gotta thank my guys. When we unloaded the car was good and it stayed good all day long.”

D.J. Shaw, debuting a new Ford Mustang, finished second, Sanborn edged out Clay Rogers in a photo finish for third and Jody Measamer scored his best career PASS South finish in fifth.

Rounding out the top ten were PASS South points leader Austin Theriault, Spencer Davis, Jay Fogleman, Bobby Measmer Jr. and Brandon Lynn.
