The 22nd Annual John Blewett III Memorial North-South Shootout in Memory of Charles Kepley will air live on RacingAmerica.tv at Caraway Speedway on November 8-9, 2024.
The North-South Shootout is always one of the biggest Modified races in the South, and this year’s event sees the return of Supermodifieds to the marquee fall showcase. Fans unable to attend this year’s race will be able to watch live via pay-per-view on RacingAmerica.tv.
“We’re trying to throw this thing back to the original type deal that Charles Kepley did, basically an open wheel Modified show. Hopefully it’ll turn out great,” said Darren Hackett of Caraway Speedway. “It’s an ISMA-sanctioned event, and ISMA and Midwest Supermodifeds merged a couple of years ago. It’s now under the ISMA banner, and they normally have a pretty good car count when they show up.”
"Racing America has long been a supporter of the North South Shootout at Caraway and we are excited to providing coverage again in 2024," said Racing America Director of Broadcasting Alan Dietz. "Caraway is a unique and challenging racetrack and having the Supermodifieds there for the first time will make this great day of racing even better.
The Tour-Type Modified race, entering its 22nd year, will pay $10,000 to the victor. The list of North-South Shootout winners includes Matt Hirschman, Ryan Preece, Burt Myers, Justin Bonsignore, John Blewett, III, Donny Lia, Andy Seuss, Jon McKennedy and Max McLaughlin.
This year’s North-South Shootout will be the first time the ISMA Supermodifieds have ever been to Caraway Speedway, and the first time Supermodfieds have taken part in the event since its early years at Concord Speedway.
602 Modifieds, Challengers, Mini Stocks and Street Stocks will also be on track over the course of the two-day event at Caraway Speedway.
