Asheboro, NC — The entry list to-date for the North-South Shootout includes the likes of Matt Hirschman of Northampton, PA, the only three-time winner of the event, and two-time winner Burt Myers of Walnut Cove, NC. It also includes a diverse collection of drivers, who compete up-and-down the east coast.
For the first time in many years, New England’s Modified Racing Series will have strong representation. Series top-guns Les Hinckley of Windsor Locks, CT, and Kirk Alexander of W. Swanzey, NH, who have made multiple North-South Shootout starts with modest results, will look for career bests at Caraway. Fellow MRS competitor Max Zachem of Preston, CT, will also be making the trek to Caraway.
Jimmy Blewett, of Howell, NJ, a sentimental favorite, will pilot the family-owned car looking to follow in the footsteps of his brother, who was a two-time winner. Blewett, too, has had modest results with one (1) top-ten finish and four (4) top-15 finishes in six starts.
