Notes: The name Blewett has long been a part of the Turkey Derby history.  The family has won the Tour-type Modified race some 11 times.  That does not include the SK win and the Dirt Modified division that Jimmy Blewett won in last season.  He is entered in all three again this year and the Sportsman feature as well. Eric Mauriello will be doing double duty along with Jimmy Blewett and we expect Matt Hirschman who is fresh off a win at Myrtle Beach Speedway (SC) to also pull double-duty.  Track champion Steve Reed is still hoping to make the show this weekend after a practice crash in his Tour-type car.
