BLEWETT 76 MAKES IT'S FINAL
AT TURKEY DERBY XXXIV
Tradition is a word that runs parallel with family.
Something that is done, with those we love, year after year. The Merriam
Webster Dictionary has tradition being defined as the handing down of
information, beliefs and customs by word of mouth or by example from one
generation to another. The Holiday Season is a perfect example of
tradition amongst families. Turkey Derby is the example
of tradition amongst racing families. Turkey Derby XXXIV will host the
end of a tradition: The running of the Blewett Motorsports family owned
#76 Red, White & Blue Modified.
Wall Township Speedway is proud to announce that Jimmy
Blewett will be running the family owned car at Turkey Derby XXXIV. John
"Grandpa" Blewett, Sr. has said that this will be the last time that
this vehicle will be run. This will be the public's last chance to see
this amazing tradition hit the banks of any speedway. After Turkey Derby
XXXIV, the Grand Champion #76 Modified will be placed in the Blewett
Automotive Museum and Wall Township Speedway will retire the number. An
honor so duly earned, not just for JBIII, but for the entire Blewett
Family. Grandpa wants to see this car run one last time.
Traditions do not have to end. At a time when change is
something that happens daily, at every level, traditions may change as
well. Traditions and family: two things that are ever changing, ever
growing and remarkable memory makers at the dawn of every day and
turning of every season.
