Roberts Gets First Van Hoy Oil CRA Street Stocks Win and the Series 2020 Championship at Winchester Speedway Saturday

 

Salem, IN (October 10, 2020) – Louisville, Kentucky native Brandon Roberts had his best race of the season Saturday night in the Van Hoy Oil CRA Street Stocks Powered by JEGS Season Championship event at Winchester Speedway, as part of the Winchester 400 Presented by JEGS. Roberts got by two time series Champion Jason Atkinson on lap 39 to get his first ever series win and claimed the series 2020 Championship as the highest finishing 2020 Chase for the Championship driver.

 

“I just can’t believe it,” remarked a jubilant Roberts in victory lane. “To come to Winchester and get the win and the series Championship is just unbelievable! I have to thank everyone who helps me on this car, my family, my crew, and all these people that came to support us tonight. We worked hard to get better all year, we were not very good in the early races, but be we continued to gain each race and we did it with a lot of hard work. This is a great bunch of drivers to race against, they race you hard, but they race clean. Its an honor to be the series 2020 Champion!”

 

Atkinson grabbed the early lead after Van Hoy Oil/Allstar Performance Fast Qualifier Jeff Lane drew a five for the events inverted start. Atkinson came in as one of the four Chase drivers with a chance to win the series Championship along with Roberts, Andrew Teepe and Josh Poore.

 

Atkinson pulled away in the early laps and looked like he would cruise to the win while the top six battled for position, when Roberts start his march to the front. Roberts would get by Teepe for second and set his sights on Atkinson, finally tracking him down as the race started to wind down.

 

Atkinson caught the tail of the lead lap cars with Roberts on his back bumper when Roberts made a great move to the inside pinning Atkinson behind the last lead lap car, completing the pass for the lead coming out of tun four on lap 39. From there Roberts would pull away to get the win by just over a second as the race went green to checkers.

 

For his pass of Atkinson for the lead, Roberts was awarded the KRJ Race Products Sweet Move of the Race Award. Roberts had already earned the series 2020 Rookie of the Year Award before Saturday night’s event and became the series’ first ever Rookie of the Year to also win the series Championship in the series 16 years of racing.

 

Atkinson would finish in second and second in the series Chase for the Championship. Atkinson was awarded the Van Hoy Oil Halfway Leader Award Bonus.

 

Teepe finished third in the race and third in the series Chase for the Championship. Calvin Parham finished in fourth place and picked up the AR Bodies Cool Move of the Race for some great passes for position in the late laps of the race to get his top five finish. Josh Poore finished in fifth place and would finish in fourth in the series Chase for the Championship.

 

Chad Pendleton finished in sixth. Josh Sage finished in seventh. J. J. Schafer finished in eighth. Don Gregory finished in ninth. Buck Purtee came from his 18th place starting position to finish in 10th earning the Van Hoy Oil Hardcharger Award.

Crabtree Gets the Win with the CRA Late Model Sportsman at Winchester Speedway

Hutson Picks Up Second Series Championship

 

Salem, IN (October 12, 2020) – J.P. Crabtree got the win in Saturday night’s 50 lap Vore’s Welding CRA Late Model Sportsman Powered by JEGS Season Championship event at Winchester Speedway, after flagged race winner Brandon Varney’s car did not pass post-race inspection. The win was Crabtree’s second career series win.

 

“It always great to get a win,” remarked Crabtree in victory lane. “I would have rather won it on the track, but my team and I worked our butt’s off to get here and race tonight and be in position to get the win. I have to thank everyone who helps us get to the racetrack, my family, my team and everyone who came out here to support us tonight. It’s great being a two-time winner at Winchester !”

 

Crabtree raced in the JEGS/CRA All-Stars Tour event Friday night at Winchester Speedway and got caught up in an on-track incident not of his making, that did some damage to the nose of the car. During the race Crabtree’s right-side door and rear fender flew off the car and over the wall in the back stretch.

Crabtree would go on to finish in 11th with most of the body missing on his car. When they went to try and retrieve the body parts, someone else had already taken them.

 

“We looked around where they went over the wall and they were gone. We figured a fan from the campground grabbed them up as a souvenir, we went out in the campground, but couldn’t find them anywhere,” added Crabtree. “We took the car back to the shop and cut the right-side body parts off one of our older cars and used those to help get the car back together. We got here just in time to qualify on Saturday, we missed both practice sessions, but the car was good Friday, so I felt like we would have a good piece for Friday!”

 

For his efforts to get the car back together and race on Saturday, Crabtree was awarded the KRJ Race Products Sweet Move of the Race Award. Crabtree won this event in 2018 in similar fashion when the event's flagged winner did not pass post-race tech.

 

Billy Hutson finished in second, the highest of the series 2020 Chase for the Championship drivers, earning him the series 2020 Championship. It was the second series Championship for Hutson, who also won it 13 years ago in 2007.

 

“It feels really good to get this second Championship,” remarked Hutson. “It took a while, we’ve been in the hunt the last couple of seasons and came up a little short, but we finally got the second one tonight! I have to thank everyone who supports this team. A lot of hard work and effort goes into running for a Championship and I appreciate everyone on this team for their help and staying behind me!”

 

Chris Shannon would finish in third place. Series Chase contender Cassten Everidge finished in fourth place and second in the series 2020 Chase for the Championship in his first time competing for a CRA Championship. Another Chase contender, Austin Coe, finished in fifth place and finished third in the series 2020 Chase for the Championship.

 

Chase contender Tanner Jack had his day end on lap five after getting caught up in a multi car incident that damaged his car too much to continue to race. Jack finished in fourth in the series 2020 Chase for the Championship and was the series 2020 Rookie of the Year.

FRYAR HOLDS ON TO WIN LMSC TITLE; BERRY EARNS $30,000 WITH OLD NORTH STATE NATIONALS WIN


 

EASLEY, S.C. (Oct. 25, 2020) — Jared Fryar won the 2020 Solid Rock Carriers CARS Tour Late Model Stock Car championship in Sunday’s second annual Heritage Transportation Risk Management Old North State Nationals presented by GXS Wraps at Greenville-Pickens Speedway, while JR Motorsports’ Josh Berry won the race and $30,000.


 

Fryar won the title by a single point over Layne Riggs. With the championship, Fryar became the first driver in Solid Rock Carriers CARS Tour history to win both the LMSC and Super Late Model titles. Berry’s race win capped off a week that included a NASCAR Advance Auto Parts Weekly Series national championship and an announcement that he will drive 12 races next season for JR Motorsports in the NASCAR XFINITY Series.


 

Sunday was the first time Berry had competed in a Solid Rock Carriers CARS LMSC Tour event since his suspension following an on-track incident with Bobby McCarty at Ace Speedway, but he provided the field a strong reminder as to why he is the CARS Tour’s all-time wins leader.


 

"This is truly unbelievable," Berry said. "These guys have done such a great job all year staying on top of things. We ran a lot of laps Friday and Saturday, and all of that paid off today. I knew taking tires with 100 laps to go was too early, and we were in a prime position with new tires by restarting eighth after the second rain delay."


 

Berry surrendered the lead from the pole to Deac McCaskill before Layne Riggs passed both of them to take the lead early. Riggs had explored the high line during the three heat races on Saturday and used it to assume control of the race.


 

After passing McCaskill for second, Josh Berry attempted to use the bottom line to power his way by Riggs, but the 2017 CARS LMSC Tour champion was forced to tuck in line and ride behind Riggs until a competition caution was displayed at Lap 68.


 

On the ensuing restart, Berry worked his way by the slower cars of Chad McCumbee and Peyton Sellers, both of which had stayed out under caution, to retake the lead. Berry led the race until an incident between Boo Boo Dalton and Taylor Satterfield brought out the yellow just before the halfway point.


 

Berry, Mike Looney and several other front runners elected to save a set of tires for the end of the race while Riggs led a group of cars down pit road. Riggs and the other cars that pitted used their fresh tires to race back towards the front of the field.


 

Berry believed that the race was in his hands when a rain delay halted the Old North State Nationals with 52 laps remaining, but he admitted that patience would be imperative depending on how many cars decided to come with him to get fresh tires once the yellow flag was displayed.


 

"We were concerned about how many cars would stay out during the break, but only seven did," Berry said. "We lined up eighth with fresh tires, but you're always worried about getting caught up in a wreck and you have to control what you can control. I felt like we put ourselves in the best position to win."


 

Berry wasted no time charging towards the lead and found himself on Riggs' rear bumper after only ten laps. A strong run by Berry under Riggs in Turn 3 gave him the momentum to drive away from Riggs and easily claim his 19th win in CARS Tour Late Model Stock Car competition.


 

While Berry celebrated in victory lane, Fryar was overcome with emotion after backing up his 2018 SLM title with the 2020 LMSC crown, despite dealing with an ill-handling car for most of the weekend.


 

"Josh [Berry] gave me some words of wisdom," Fryar said. "He told me he ran like crap in the last race when he won it in 2017, but it's awesome to have so many good runs all year long and a win, which is all I could have asked for. The competition is so tough in the CARS Tour, so it feels good to finally get a championship in a Late Model Stock Car."


 

Fryar was confident in his chances about battling Berry for the $30,000 paycheck on Sunday evening, but he said that his car did not agree with some adjustments that his crew made following the heat races on Saturday.


 

Fryar and his crew kept trying to diagnose the issues with his No. 14 Sterling Building Group Ford once the green flag dropped for the Old North State Nationals, but Fryar ended up spending most of the event's opening half clinging to a Top 10 running position.


 

With Riggs collecting a bonus point for leading laps, Fryar knew how important track position would be to maintaining the points lead, but he believed that his crew finally got the car right after they put tires on it during a Lap 102 caution.


 

Fryar used the fresh rubber to work his way through slower traffic up to the ninth position before weather brought another yellow flag out with 52 laps to go. Fryar elected to stay out on track with Riggs and a handful of others once the race got back going, meaning that he would have to fight to keep his points lead.


 

The final green flag run of the evening saw Fryar struggle to corral his car as drivers like Looney, Connor Mosack and more passed him. For most of the last 50 laps, the live points lead swapped between Riggs and Fryar on multiple occasions.


 

"It just went away there at the end," Fryar said about his car. "We could just never get through Turn 1 like we needed to. I don't know if we made the wrong changes or if there was just something wrong with the car. We'll celebrate and go back to the shop and look at the car so it's ready for next year."


 

With six laps to go, Riggs and Fryar were tied in the points standings. At that point, Riggs would have won the title off the first tiebreaker — most wins. However, Fryar's fortunes turned when Timothy Peters retired from the race. Peters’ retirement moved Fryar into the 13th position and gave him the championship by just one point.


 

Riggs, who spent a good portion of the closing stages battling Corey Heim for second, did everything he needed to do in order to have an opportunity to win both the race and the championship, but he said that consistency ultimately decided which driver celebrated on the frontstretch.


 

"We had a good race," Riggs said. "We got off on strategy when we changed tires early, and the fresh rubber that Josh [Berry] and Corey [Heim] at the end prevailed. I enjoyed racing with Corey, but we came up short. Congrats to Jared on being super consistent all year, but without those DNFs at Hickory and Florence, I think we would have had a good shot at it."


 

Fryar was unaware of the actual points situation until he received confirmation from CARS Tour officials after the race, as he was focused on nursing his struggling car to the checkered flag while simultaneously respecting everyone out on track.


 

"I knew it was close," Fryar said. "I was just trying to hold off all those guys behind me, but Josh was trying to lap me and I was trying to stay off of him. This wasn't the prettiest way to win the championship, but my name is on the trophy at the end of the day."


 

While the Late Model Stock Cars have completed their 2020 season, the Super Late Models of the Solid Rock Carriers CARS Tour finish their 2020 campaign with the All-American 400 at the Nashville Fairgrounds Speedway on Nov. 1.

POPE CHARGES FOR FIRST WIN IN FLORENCE AS CRAIG WINS THIRD RACE OF THE SEASON


 

TIMMONSVILLE, S.C. (Oct. 3, 2020) – The Solid Rock Carriers CARS Tour's inaugural trip to Florence Motor Speedway for the Aaron's 250 saw Nolan Pope claim his first win in a thrilling last-lap battle with Timothy Peters, while Super Late Model points leader Matt Craig earned his third victory of the 2020 season.


 

Craig knew that Trevor Noles, who started on pole after winning the U.S. Short Track Nationals at Bristol Motor Speedway the week before, would pose an immense challenge, but he felt confident in his chances to win as soon as he arrived at Florence on Friday.


 

"We struggled really bad at Bristol, but tonight we had a really good car," Craig said. "We were really fast off the truck on Friday. My car was really similar to Trevor's, as we both have Rowdy [Manufacturing] cars, so it was kind of like an IROC race with everyone having the same car, but it was fun."


 

Noles and Craig controlled the early portion of the event until Michael Ritch powered his way to the front from the 10th spot on the grid and took the lead. A bad restart briefly put Ritch back in third, but he methodically worked his way back to the lead until Craig passed him on Lap 79.


 

Ritch would ultimately get knocked out of contention after colliding with Carson Kvapil on a later restart, leaving Craig and Noles to settle the win between themselves. Noles ultimately had nothing for Craig and was forced to watch him pull away with the win.


 

Craig's win at Florence will pad out an already comfortable points lead over Sammy Smith, but he said that his second consecutive SLM title in the CARS Tour title is far from guaranteed, given that the season finale is the triple-sanctioned All-American 400 at Nashville.


 

"With the All-American 400, 32 cars start that race," Craig said. "I think we'll still have to finish in the Top 25 or better at Nashville to clinch. A lot of things can happen there, but hopefully we can hang on and get another championship."


 

The ensuing LMSC feature was primarily dominated by Peters, but an efficient tire conservation strategy from Pope enabled him to charge his way through the field and pass the two-time ValleyStar Credit Union 300 winner with a great run off Turn 4 coming to the checkered flag.


 

Pope believed that he could conserve his equipment at the front of the field alongside Peters, Layne Riggs and Lee Pulliam after qualifying in fifth, but he quickly adjusted his strategy when he realized how aggressive his competition was at the beginning of the feature.


 

"We were going to try and ride out front, but everyone was going faster than I wanted to," Pope said. "I knew we were going to have a good chance, but we just had to be there. After that last caution 80 laps in, I told my spotter that my car was really good around the bottom and as long as it stayed there, we had a shot."


 

Pope dropped to the tail end of the field while Riggs held off challenges from Pulliam, Matt Cox and Justin Johnson. Riggs' chances of a third consecutive victory ended soon after when a faulty alternator cost him two laps on pit road.


 

Johnson assumed control of the lead and encountered little resistance from the likes of Cox and Peters, but a mechanical issue on Lap 69 forced him to bring his Late Model into the pits, denying him his first career victory.


 

With Johnson out of the race, Peters gained the upper hand on his closest competition in McCumbee after the latter used up his tires. However, several drivers, including Pope, began to weave their way through slower traffic after successfully conserving their tires.


 

Once Pope dispatched Pulliam and teammate Corey Heim, he made short work of McCumbee, but he had less than 15 laps to get around lapped cars and chase down Peters for that elusive first career win.


 

Peters did not think Pope was a contender for the win until he saw him rapidly approaching in his rearview mirror, but he admitted that there was not much he could do to stall out Pope's momentum and beat him to the checkered flag in the closing laps.


 

"I just gave him a little too much room, but I was getting really tight," Peters said. "I think I went a little too soon after the last caution. This one will go in the memory bank when we come back down here for the big race, so hopefully things will go the same way except 10 yards in my direction."


 

Pope, who was coming off a dismal weekend at Carteret County Speedway that saw him get banned from the Touring 12 following a post-race altercation, was solely focused on being consistent and gaining spots, but was also oblivious as to where he was in the running order until the checkered flag flew.


 

"I had no idea that was even for the lead," Pope said. "Nobody said anything, but when I crossed the line, everybody started yelling and I asked if that was for the win, and I was told yes. I really didn't want a yellow, but luckily that didn't happen and we were able to clear [Peters] off Turn 4 for the checkered."


 

The LMSC portion of the Solid Rock Carriers CARS Tour season will conclude with the Old North State Nationals from Oct. 24-25 at Greenville-Pickens Speedway. The Super Late Models finish their 2020 campaign with the All-American 400 at the Nashville Fairgrounds Speedway from Oct. 30-Nov. 1. The Solid Rock Carriers CARS Tour is broadcast live on CARSTour.TV.

SOLID ROCK CARRIERS CARS TOUR EVENT PREVIEW PRESENTED BY ACCENT IMAGING: HERITAGE TRANSPORTATION RISK MANAGEMENT OLD NORTH STATE NATIONALS PRESENTED BY GXS WRAPS AT GREENVILLE-PICKENS SPEEDWAY — OCTOBER 24-25, 2020


 

MOORESVILLE, N.C. (October 20, 2020) — The 2020 Late Model Stock Car season for the Solid Rock Carriers CARS Tour concludes this weekend with the year’s highest-paying LMSC race in the United States — the Heritage Transportation Risk Management Old North State Nationals presented by GXS Wraps at Greenville-Pickens Speedway, in Easley, South Carolina.


 

Paying $30,000-to-win, the second running of the Heritage Transportation Risk Management Old North State Nationals presented by GXS Wraps has 34 cars entered, while the 2020 Late Model Stock Car champion of the CARS Tour will also be crowned. Jared Fryar enters the race with a 15-point advantage over Layne Riggs, but both drivers will be fighting for victory over the best drivers in Late Model Stock Car racing, including Josh Berry, Mike Looney and Jeff Fultz.


 

The Heritage Transportation Risk Management Old North State Nationals presented by GXS Wraps was originally scheduled to be held at Orange County Speedway in April before being pushed back and eventually relocated due to the Phase 2 and Phase 3 policies of the State of North Carolina’s “Safer at Home” program. Lee Pulliam won the inaugural Old North State Nationals one year ago.


 

This weekend’s program is the only one this season to be spread out over two days. Old North State Nationals weekend begins on Saturday at 7 p.m. ET with the Qualifying Races presented by GXS Wraps. Drivers will compete in four races and a Last Chance Qualifier to set the field for the 200-lap feature, which runs on Sunday afternoon at 3 p.m. ET. Following Saturday night’s racing, Tyler Hatley & The Little Mountain Band will perform at the track to close out the evening. Admission to the concert is free with a grandstand ticket or pit pass.

Jared Fryar poised to clinch championship


 

If Jared Fryar finishes eighth or better, he will become the first driver to win both a Late Model Stock Car championship and a Super Late Model championship in the CARS Tour.


 

Fryar won the Super Late Model title in 2018 and has led the Late Model Stock Car points throughout much of the 2020 season. Now, he’s hoping to seal the deal on Sunday in the biggest race of the year.


 

“It’s nerve-racking leading the points and also going into the biggest race of the season with the most cars and some locals,” Fryar said. “We have a lot on the line to win and it will be harder than ever before to accomplish both goals, but we have a strong enough team to do it.”


 

Fryar, who is part of the Lucas Oil Touring 12, has backed up his victory at Franklin County Speedway in August with seven top-five finishes and eight top-10 finishes through nine races in 2020. His average finish through those races is 4.4.


 

Consistency has been the road Fryar has traveled this season, much like his championship triumph in the 2018 CARS Super Late Model Tour season. That year, Fryar won the title off the back of four top-fives and seven top-10s. If he can seal the deal on Sunday and clinch the championship, it will be a career-defining moment.


 

“It would mean my whole racing career to me, my dad, and everyone who helped us accomplish great seasons in both divisions,” Fryar continued. “I feel like these CARS Tour championships are hard to come by, because it’s about being good  over a 10-race schedule, not just a couple of good runs.”


 

Josh Berry returns to CARS Tour action


 

After laying claim to the 2020 NASCAR Advance Auto Parts Weekly Series National Championship on Sunday at Southern National Motorsports Park, former CARS Tour LMSC Champion Josh Berry is back, with his sights set on the $30,000 prize going to Sunday’s race winner.


 

His appearance in the Old North State Nationals will be his first since Ace Speedway in June.


 

“It’s been a while since I’ve been to Greenville-Pickens Speedway,” Berry said. “We’re gonna prepare.  I’m going to have a lot on my plate this week but we’re going to do our best to get prepared and see what we have Friday when we get there.”


 

In NAAPWS competition, Berry has had a phenomenal season with 24 wins — but he has not won in either of his two Solid Rock Carriers CARS Tour starts this year.  A victory in the Old North State Nationals would not only be his first CARS Tour win since South Boston last November and 19th in his CARS Tour career, it would also be his richest achievement since winning the ValleyStar Credit Union 300 at Martinsville Speedway last September.


 

“If I was able to win that race on top of everything else we’ve done this year, I think I could probably just hang it up there because it’s not going to be any better,” Berry continued. “We’re going to give it our best shot. It will be a tough race. A lot of great competition there, but I feel like we have as good a shot as anybody.”


 

CARS Tour Policies to Prevent Spread of COVID-19 Continue


 

The CARS Tour’s COVID-19 policies will continue to be in effect for this weekend’s race at Greenville-Pickens Speedway. They include (but are not limited to) the following:

  • All personnel will have their temperature screened before entering the race track.

  • Driver Intros will not be held amongst the crowd, per usual; instead, drivers will be introduced from their cars on the grid.

  • Trailers will be spread out across the infield to maintain proper social distancing.

  • Spotters will be required to wear masks during the race.

  • Masks will be strongly recommended for those who are in the infield and required for all Victory Lane celebrations.

 

 

 

Early Entry List Revealed for CARS Tour Old North State Nationals at Greenville-Pickens

 

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Written By: CARS Tour
www.carsracingtour.com

Mooresville, NC 10/8/20 – Twenty-six cars have filed their early entry as of October 7th for the Heritage Transportation Risk Management “Old North State Nationals” presented by GXS Wraps at Greenville-Pickens (SC) Speedway on October 24-25th.

 

Thus far the entry list reveals a large contingent of Palmetto State drivers taking advantage of the race moving to their home state due to North Carolina’s COVID-19 mass gathering restrictions.

Jeremy Burns, Anthony Anders, Matt Cox, and Austin Somero are half of the seven drivers entered that call South Carolina home. In addition to them, defending track champion and current Late Model Stock points leader Taylor Satterfield, had filed his entry for the $30,000 to win race.

One driver that fans over the years are used to seeing behind the wheel of a Super Late Model at Greenville-Pickens, has thrown his hat into the mix for the 200 lap feature event, Jeff Fultz. The former three-time All Pro Series champion has seen a high rate of success at the half-mile track in various series over his career. Fultz has racked up wins and podium finishes over the years in All Pro, Pro Cup, and the PASS South Series at Greenville-Pickens.  

Often deemed “The People’s Champion”, Mike Looney will get his second taste of CARS Tour action. Looney, the 2016 Martinsville 300 race winner and 2019 NASCAR Weekly Series national champion runner-up, will make the trip South from his hometown of New Castle, Virginia. Looney made his series debut earlier this season when the series visited Franklin County Speedway as part of a last minute schedule change due to COVID-19 restrictions at other tracks. Looney dueled current championship points leader Jared Fryar down to the final lap, before coming up just short of the win in August.  

Josh Berry will return to CARS Tour action for the first time this season after deciding to chase the 2020 NASCAR Weekly Series championship. All indications in the national weekly series points standings show that Berry will show up to the Old North State Nationals as the newly crowned national champion. Berry, the 2017 Late Mode Stock Tour champion and all-time CARS Late Model Stock Car Tour wins leader, is no stranger to winning big money events on paperclip shaped race tracks like Greenville. The JR Motorsports driver is the defending Martinsville 300 race winner from a season ago where he pocketed $44,000 for his victory.

Not only will the Old North State Nationals pay out an impressive $86,875 making it the biggest Late Model Stock race of 2020, but it will also crown the 2020. Current Solid Rock Carriers CARS Tour Late Model stock championship points leader Jared Fryar will carry a 15 point lead over Layne Riggs and Corey Heim into the final race of the season. The Trinity, North Carolina driver has a shot at history, becoming the first driver to win both a Late Model Stock tour championship and a Super Late Model tour championship (Fryar: 2018 CARS SLM Champion).  

Tickets for the Old North State Nationals are on sale now only at www.carsracingtour.com, and reflect heavy savings for those purchasing in advance. Fans can view the complete pre entry list as of 10/8 on the site as well.

General admission tickets to Saturday’s qualifying race day and concert are $15.00 in advance and $22.00 the day of the event for adults thirteen years of age and older. Kids twelve and under are free with a paid adult. Trackside parking spots are $13 in advance and $20 the day of the event.

5 Casey Johnson- The defending ARCA Midwest Tour Champion and current point leader just wrapped up his fourth Tundra Series Championship last weekend. He is a three time Jefferson Speedway Champion where he is also a six time Wisconsin State Champion. He has backed up his home track success with a pair of titles in Big 8 Series action, Madison Triple Crown and in the Fox River Racing Club at Wisconsin International Raceway where he is also a former Red, White and Blue State Champion.

5 Johnny Sauter- The most recent ARCA Midwest Tour feature fought tooth and nail to best Casey Johnson and Gabe Sommers at Dells Raceway Park over Labor Day Weekend to win the Joe Shear Classic 200. Now the 2001 ASA National Champion and 2016 NASCAR Truck Champion looks to record a second Oktoberfest 200 win to go along with his 2017 Fest victory.

7 Paul Shafer, Jr- He bested three time Oktoberfest winner Eddie Hoffman to record his second Chicagoland Track Championship just last month.

His first Chicagoland Championship came in 2013 at Illiana Motor Speedway.

9 Derek Kraus- Now a NASCAR Truck Series front runner, Kraus wowed them at Fest last year picking up The Futures victory on Thursday Night.

36 Dan Fredrickson- In search of a fifth Oktoberfest win which would tie him with Joe Shear, Fredrickson is always a threat to win and came up just shy at Fest a year ago. The 2008 and 2013 Midwest Tour Champion also leads all other drivers with three Dick Trickle 99 checkered flags. He was the 2017 Triple Crown Champion at Madison International Speedway and the 2003 Champ at his home track, Elko Speedway.

52 Brock Heinrich- His only Tour start of 2020 saw this former two time State Park Speedway Late Model Champion lead laps in the Detjens Memorial before finishing a Tour career best third in July. Having won a preliminary feature at Fest last year, many eyes are on this young up and comer.

77 Jonathan Eilen- Over the past two seasons, he has recorded feature victories at Dells Raceway Park and Madison International Speedway along with winning the final segment of last year’s Dick Trickle 99 on Friday night of Oktoberfest. The 2012 ARCA Midwest Tour Champion has posted two top five efforts in Tour action this year and finished fourth in the 50th Oktoberfest 200.

80 Ryan Farrell- He is becoming one of the more popular drivers on Tour and rightfully so. He and his ‘Best Unpaid Crew In All of Racing’ are continuously fast wherever they go and have a winning attitude. He got the most out of his equipment and raced his way to the 2018 Wisconsin Challenge Series Crown.

91 Ty Majeski- Last year’s Oktoberfest 200 winner Ty Majeski will be making his first ARCA Midwest Tour start since his $10,000 payday in August’s Gandrud Auto Group 250 at WIR. The four time Midwest Tour Champion was also victorious on Sunday of the 2016 Oktobefest Race Weekend. Having won major Super Late Model events across the country, he is

Entry Forms & Weekend Schedule Available For North-South Shootout At Caraway  

 

  • For Immediate Release  

 

SOPHIA, NC (October 14) – With the 18th Annual John Blewett, III Memorial North-South Shootout – In Memory Of Charles Kepley being less than a month away, information for fans and competitors is now available.  Entry forms, the complete weekend schedule, as well as camping reservations and grandstand ticket purchases, can all be found at carawayspeedway.com.  This year’s running of the North-South Shootout will be returning to the 55-year-old facility due to COVID-19 restrictions eliminating the possibility of having the race at Hickory Motor Speedway.  The 18th Annual North-South Shootout will be the weekend of November 6-7 and will feature 150-lap events for the Tour-Type Modifieds and Super Late Models.  The Modifieds will compete for $7500 to win and $1000 to start, while the Super Late Models will co-headline, paying $5000 to win and $500 to start.  The Limited Late Models will also be in action, along with 602 Modifieds, 602 Super Limiteds, and Mini Stocks.  Entry forms for the Tour-Type Modifieds, Super Late Models, 602 Modifieds, and 602 Super Limiteds, along with reserved trackside parking, trackside camping, and grandstand tickets, are all available at carawayspeedway.com.   

Caraway Speedway hosted the North-South Shootout from 2011-2014 with the four races there being split between Matt Hirschman and Ryan Preece.  Top Southern Modified runner Burt Myers scored back-to-back wins in the North-South at Concord Speedway in 2008-2009 and leads a strong southern contingent of Modified drivers like Brian Loftin, John Smith, Bobby Measmer, Jr., and Jeremy Gerstner in defense of their home turf.  Hirschman realizes a win at this year's Shootout will be tough to achieve with so many strong teams having experience at Caraway Speedway.  

            On Saturday, November 7th, in addition to the Tour-Type Modifieds and Super Late Models, the Limited Late Models will compete in a 75-lapper for $2,000 to win, along with 602 Modifieds, 602 Super Limiteds, and Mini Stocks will also be in action.  On Friday, November 6th there will be practice for all divisions and qualifying for the Tour-Type Modifieds, Super Late Models, 602 Modifieds, and 602 Super Limiteds.
