This week C&C Racing Promotions kicked off tickets sales for the prestigious
7th Annual John Blewett III Memorial North-South Shootout™, scheduled for
November 6&7, 2009 at Concord Speedway in Concord, NC.
Traditionally the event hosts the northern and southern modified
stars in an all-out duel for racing supremacy with some of the biggest names
in Modified racing including the likes of Ted Christopher, Matt Hirschman,
Donny Lia, Junior Miller, Burt Myers, Brian Loftin, and countless others.
The event features 125 laps of green flag racing for the mighty Modifieds.
The SK-Type Modifieds, an equally as competitive and tenacious brand of
open-wheel racing, compete in a 50-lapper of their own. Joining the
open-wheel brethren are the authentic and very racy vintage modified and

Over the last few years C&C Racing Promotions has incorporated a
variety of racing divisions/series into the North-South Shootout in an
effort to compliment the already potent race program. For 2009, C&C Racing
Promotions feels they have found the proper chemistry with the Late Models
of the ASA Southeast Asphalt Tour. This year C&C has invited the ASA
Southeast Asphalt Tour to become part of the heritage that is the
The ASA Southeast Asphalt Tour will add a host of new talent from
ranks of full-fendered racing to the already impressive roster of the annual
John Blewett III Memorial North-South Shootout™. Fans of the Shootout can
see and enjoy “how the other half lives”.
In a tenuous economic climate, C&C Racing Promotions has once again
frozen the price of admission tickets to the annual event. Helping to once
again bring a real value to the racing community, prices for the Shootout
have not seen an increase in five years.
“We started pricing the tickets this way back in 2003,” said
Charles Kepley of Lexington, NC, owner and promoter of the North-South
Shootout. “It’s fair, so we have stuck with it. Thanks to the teams that
compete each year, fans get the best bang for their buck.”
Two-day adult general admission is only $35.00 and children’s
tickets are available for ages 7-13 for only $25.00 each. Children 6 and
under are free with a paid adult. The top-row VIP tickets are available for
only $50.00. Adult tickets purchased in advance will allow the bearer entry
to the Concord Speedway pit area at no extra-charge. Some restrictions
The North-South Shootout continues to be one of only a few race
events to offer hospitality tickets for sale to the general public.
Climate-controlled hospitality-style seating is available for $60 per
seat/per person while supplies last. Demand for these tickets is high,
interested parties are encouraged to act quickly.
The North-South Shootout began in 2001 from an idea of long-time
friends and Modified supporters, Kepley and the late Josh Jenkins. The event
is a throwback to the golden days of Modified racing and a celebration of
racing excellence. In 2007, after the untimely death of accomplished
Modified racer John Blewett III, the event was renamed to honor his memory.
Today, the event is considered by many to be the marquee event of short
track racing. In 2009, the North-South Shootout promises to be the fastest,
most exciting short track racing event of the year.
