   One final event remains on the 2008 schedule for Erick Rudolph of Ransomville and the DeLange Racing crew. The team will be headed south to Concord Motorsport Park in Concord, North Carolina, to compete in the Sixth Annual John Blewett III Memorial North-South Shootout. This premier contest honors the memory of John Blewett III. The Howell, New Jersey third generation racer lost his life in a racing accident while competing in a NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour race at Thompson International Speedway in Connecticut on August 16, 2007. The Concord event attracts a stellar field of racers in several divisions, highlighted by the 100-lap Shootout for the NASCAR-type Modifieds.
   Rudolph will be making his third appearance at the North-South Shootout with the DeLange team. In 2006 he raced the #12 SST Sportsman and gained some important knowledge in his first race on the unique "World's Fastest Half-Mile Tri-Oval." In 2007 he returned with the #45 Original Pizza Logs/PrimeTyme Motorsports/Brigham Concrete Modified and put that education to work, finishing a very respectable sixth. He returns with the Modified this year and looks to continue his progress at Concord.
   "We ran this race the last two years and we did pretty well," recalls Rudolph. "In 2006 we raced the SST and gained some valuable experience. Last year in the Modified we qualified in the top-five and ran a strong race. Concord Motorsport Park is one of my favorite tracks. I always look forward to racing there. This will be my third Shootout and hopefully we'll get another good finish. I think we have the experience we need to be a contender."
   The Sixth Annual John Blewett III Memorial North-South Shootout closes out a remarkable season of success for the DeLange Racing team. Preparations are already underway for 2009. Details on our plans for next season will be announced in the coming weeks.
