It’s become a tradition on World Series Saturday night for a group of fans to enjoy the night’s feature racing activities and then try to get into each division’s victory lane photos. It’s become a tradition that honors the late John Blewett, III, who participated in the World Series victory before his untimely passing a few years back. The tradition has continued on, with a few of the group’s members now having signs that honor JBIII and other race fans.
