SOPHIA, NC — When race fans think of the 11th annual John Blewett Memorial North-South Shootout, it’s the tour-type Modifieds that come to mind first. However, with the PASS South Super Late Model Tour also at NC’s Caraway Speedway for the November 7-9 event, racing enthusiasts will be treated to a second major event next Saturday afternoon.
The PASS event will be 150 laps, and with close to 30 race teams expected to compete, this event will be every bit as competitive as the headlining Modified race. PASS National Champion Jay Fogelman (Durham, NC) is on the verge of a first career PASS South Championship, and obviously the veteran of three decades of success will be among the favorites.
Though not yet confirmed, north driver Ben Rowe is expected to travel from Maine to compete, as he did last season. Rowe, along with northern natives Rodney Brooks and Bill Catania bring a northern presence to this event for the PASS event at well. Midwest native Ross Kenseth (Mooresville, NC) is another potential entrant as well.
