The North-South Shootout TM has long been considered a throwback to the golden age of racing. The annual event is reminiscent of an era when hard-nosed Modified racers traveled up-and-down the Northeast to vie for dominance among the sport’s best. It is a heritage that competitors and fans alike are immensely proud.

Back in those days the winning driver climbed from the car in victory lane to the cheers of the crowd; met with congratulations from a trophy queen. Today, that aspect of racing is all but a memory up North; however, it is a tradition that has not been lost entirely in Southern racing.

This week Caraway Speedway announced that it would host a “Miss North-South Shootout” Contest for the 9th Annual John Blewett III Memorial North-South Shootout presented in memory of Charles Kepley.

The winner will be named Miss North- South Shootout and will be among the first to congratulate all winners during the Shootout. She will present all trophies in victory lane on November 4&5. The duties of the reigning queen will also include participation in the pit party autograph session on Saturday and attendance at all corporate sponsor events at the Speedway during the weekend.

For consideration, candidates must submit a close-up headshot, a full-body photo, along with a brief bio and explanation of why they deserve to be Miss North-South Shootout. Applications will be accepted via email at carawayspeedway@embarqmail.com. The email should also include name, age, address and phone numbers. The deadline for entries is October 20, 2011.

A panel of judges named by Caraway Speedway will select the winner from photos submitted.

All applicants must be at least 18 years of age to be eligible. The winner must be present at Caraway Speedway on November 4&5, 2011 and be able to provide your own transportation and accommodations. Winner will receive complimentary credentials for the weekend.

The Miss North-South Shootout contest is another way for the devoted fans of Modified racing and the North-South Shootout to take an active role in the prestigious event.
