Derek Griffith Collects A Second Easter Bunny

HICKORY, N.C. – Derek Griffith completed a sweep of the Easter Bunny 150 weekend Saturday at Hickory Motor Speedway with his second victory in as many days at the historic oval. Polewarczyk was the first to lead, grabbing the lead from polesitter Carson Hocevar on the 17th lap. Griffith would soon follow Polewarczyk around Hocevar and the two would stay that way until the first caution waved with 59 laps complete. I saw it early in the race because he had it turned on, he  was going,” Griffith said. Griffith held serve during that restart, but another restart following a caution on lap 112 saw Polewarczyk gain the upper hand and move around Griffith to retake the lead. One final caution would wave on lap 131, setting up a final battle between Griffith and Polewarczyk. Griffith would stretch his lead in the final run, beating Polewarczyk to the checkered flag by .771 seconds. Polewarczyk said the outside line was the place to be on restarts, but acknowledged that Griffith was the man to beat.
