The staff at Wake County Speedway, located just outside Raleigh on Simpkins Road, think they have created the biggest Easter event in the Triangle. On April 7, more than 10,000 eggs hidden within the track property will make the speedway’s Precision Wall’s Easter Egg Hunt the biggest in Raleigh. “We wanted to do something special for our fans and to get more attention on the track,” Manager Deborah Simpkins-McDonald said. “We figured having the most eggs would do the trick.”
With thousands of eggs, it would be nearly impossible for children 10-and-under to miss out on finding some hidden treasure Some of the eggs, however, will be filled with tickets to claim special prizes including candy, baskets, racing memorabilia and bicycles. Mr. Peter Cottontail himself will make an appearance at the track, riding in on a fire truck. Kids can pose for pictures with the Easter Bunny or talk to firemen.
Jeff Lee Hauling and Grading will provide free train rides around the track. There will be a bouncy house and an inflatable slide on site by S&S Entertainment to give the children even more room to play. Don’t forget, the event is at the racetrack, so there will be plenty of motorsports attraction as well. Many of Wake County Speedway’s most popular cars and drivers will be on hand to give children autographs, answer questions and even let them sit behind the wheel of a real race car. McDonald said the event is the biggest non-racing event the speedway has ever hosted and would be the perfect kickoff to the season which starts on April 20.
“We are hoping to have one of the biggest crowds ever out here for the egg hunt and hope they all come back once the season starts,” McDonald said. “Who knows, you might even see me and (P.R. manager) Ginger Pleasant do the bunny hop.” The event is free for all and will begin at 2 p.m. For more information call Deborah McDonald at 291-0097.
