The North South Shootout presented today’s Speed51.com’s Trackside Now coverage of the UARA 150 at Tri-County Speedway in Hudson, NC. The biggest open Modified event in the country, the John Blewett III North-South Shootout, is back and bigger than ever for its 11th annual running.  On November 8th and 9th, the “Men who live by the grace of God and 600 horsepower” will thunder around North Carolina’s Caraway Speedway in this traditional Modified battle pitting the stars of the Northern Modifieds versus their counterparts in the South.  Tickets are affordable for the whole family and it’s a show that shouldn’t be missed by fans who enjoy wheel-to-wheel excitement.  For more details on the 11th annual John Blewett III North-South Shootout, visit www.carawayspeedway.com

They will be the two drivers competing for the championship next week and Anderson Motor Speedway. Travis Swaim in 3rd is still eligible, but he would need a miracle to take the title.

Tonight, Dillon Bassett and Garrett Campbell both earned 15 bonus points – Bassett for gaining the most spots and Campbell for starting on pole and leading most laps. As such, Campbell barely cut anything into Dillon Basset’s lead. The margin will be around 30 points heading into the finale.

9:16
Garrett Campbell was obviously happy to win but a bit miffed with Bassett as he felt Bassett tried to wreck him on the green-white-checkered. Bassett denied that, saying it was just good racing on a green-white-checkered. Between a LMSC veteran and a youngster battling for a championship, we may be witnessing the budding of a little rivalry.

8:15
Lap 81: Campbell pulls ahead by a door now. Dillon Bassett under R.A. Brown for fourth but Brown hangs on for the time being.

8:06
RESTART: The top three get away as the field struggles to get around Dylan Hall.
8:05
Caution laps do count in this series as we are doubling up for the restart. Campbell will start inside of Wallace.
8:03
Pitting are Beane, Moore, and Stricklin. All had been lapped.
8:03
CAUTION – Lap 53: Swaim gave Garbo a bump entering Turn One, Garbo spent the entire length of Turn One & Two trying to save it, but then got another bump from Swaim as he slid out of Turn Two and finally went around. He drives away without damage.

7:59
Lap 43: Swaim is working the high line hard right now, letting R.A. Brown get under him in the corners for a shot at pulling up alongside Garbo ahead of him. He seems to be getting fairly close to making that happen as he works at it.

7:55

7:55
Lap 28: Looking at the lap times, the leaders are all running around 17.0s. Interesting to see what lap times they keep running as some will conserve and some will fade.
7:54
Lap 25: Brandon Jones by Stricklin to enter the top-ten.
7:54
Lap 25: Dillon Bassett up to 15th.
7:53
Lap 23: Dan Moore goes a lap down.
7:53

7:49
Lap 10: No ground gained yet for points leader Dillon Bassett, he rides 20th.
7:49
Lap 9: Garbo by Swaim for sixth.
7:49
Lap 8: Wallace to fifth, and he’ll pull up alongside Brown for fourth.
7:49
Lap 5: Brown completes the pass on Swaim for 5th. Swaim squeezed up in front of Wallace, but Wallace fights back in the next turn.
7:48
Lap 4: Grala keeps his car wound up enough to fend off Swaim from the high side. Give him 3rd. Now R.A. Brown pulls up alongside Swaim.
7:47
Lap 3: Swaim and Grala your first battle as they go at it for third. Then it’s Wallace and R.A. Brown.
7:47
GREEN: Campbell and Bassett go door to door for the first half lap before Bassett tries the crossover move in Turn Three. Nothing doing, he’ll tuck behind Bassett to complete lap 1.
7:46
One to go, lights go off on the pace car.
