He ran the Trukey Derby at Wall Stadium Winning the Dirt Modified and SK Modified feature, and a DNF in the Tour Mod Race.
Returning to Wall, Blewett won Opening Night, and John followed him in second. Blewett only raced a handful of races at Wall because he was competing mostly on the Tour. In September of that season, Blewett won his first ever Tour event at Martinsville Speedway in Virginia. When the tour ended, Blewett finished 15th in the points with one win.

Blewett, ran the inaugural event at Bristol Motor Speedway. Started 11th, and his day was not promising, as he had struggled to speed throughout the event, with a bad vibration and it was forced on the sideline on lap 74.
Blewett's plans for 2010, will be racing the Dick Barney No. 14 for selected events on the NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour.
Blewett decided not to race at Wall Stadium for the 2010 year because he had a heated argument with the tracks promoter over "SPEC ENGINES". Longtime rival Steven Reed purchased a motor from Tom Martino. The ridiculous horsepower that this motor made had caused his departure. This ended up being unfounded though, as Chas Okerson won the division running the old style motor, and the 2011 season proved that it was a moot point, as drivers won with both Spec's and the old motors.
Blewett ran eight NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour events in his family owned No. 76. In his off time he was back at the New Egypt Speedway. Blewett raced Thompson, and finished fourth on the tour. It was his first top 5 finish since 2010. Blewett finished eighth in points.

That win, marked his second Stafford tour win since, August 2008. Blewett, started 18th at New Hampshire International Speedway and his hopes of grabbing another remarkable finish were dashed, when he was involved in a mix up with other competitors when the green flag came out, and Blewett ended up on a back of a wrecker and finished a disappointing 28th in the final rundown. Spencer Speedway, dropped out with a broken suspension and ended up in 22nd.
2007 was the year that changed the lives of Blewett, his family, friends, and fans, forever.
On August 16, 2007, during a NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour event at Thompson, Blewett and his elder brother John III were battling for the lead starting on lap 83. On lap 107, the unthinkable happened; Blewett's car got out of shape, and John III tried to avoid and Blewett's car ended on top of John's car. Immediately, Blewett exited his crippled car unscathed, peeked into John's window and then he frantically summoned to the safety crew and immediately rushed to the scene. The capacity crowd, was silent while looking at the horrific site. At 11:00 pm, Blewett received the grim news, John died - he was 33 years old.
2004 was the start of a difficult year for Blewett. Opening Night at Wall, he was suspended due to verbal abuse to an official. A week after, he returned and scored a top five finish, week after that, won a race. Everything was going well, and made up the points that he missed from Opening Night, put him on top. On July 3, 2004 things started coming to a head. After the tire scuffle for the start of the 76 lap event, Harry Reed drove into the back of Blewett (who was outside of John III in front). Blewett pitted his damaged car before the green fell, and Reed never returned to action. While John III, was holding a healthy lead, Blewett returned to the race with 11 laps off the pace. While Blewett's grandfather John Sr. advised him to stay last because, the points were the important thing to score. Suddenly, Blewett furiously veered right into Steven Reed (Harry's son) sending him airborne, and sliding across the speedway. Officials immediately disqualified him from the contest and he received no points, and when he drove into the pits, Reed's crew and Blewett's crew started throwing punches at each other along with pushing and shoving. Jessie (Blewett's stepmother), and father John, Jr. shielded Blewett's crippled car, and almost the whole crowd rioted into the pits. Finally, Blewett was taken back to his home by Wall Township Police officers after the fights subsided. John won the race and he stated during his interview, "fighting, doesn't sugar coat anything."
Blewett has 2 cars for that season, one was silver and the other was black and white, and a tour car. Blewett made his tour debut at the now closed Nazareth Speedway and qualified ninth in the 40 car field. His day ended on lap 58, after crashing into the retaining wall, and finished a dismal 34th. A race or two later, he raced at his home track which was the inaugural event at Wall. Blewett finished a respectable fourth behind 1990 Tour Champion Jamie Tomaino, Ken Woolley, Jr., and his brother won the race. Blewett and his brother John split a victory which was THE GARDEN STATE CLASSIC which was twin 50's from the original 100 lap format. On October 15, 2003 Blewett finished a very respectable second in points to Dave Michel. At the Turkey Derby, Blewett won two out of the three events, and captured the Overall Title by a single margin.
Blewett raced on the NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour, in his family owned No. 76 at Thompson Motorsports Park. He started 18th and, crashed out of the event finishing 24th. Since 2003, Blewett decided to return to Wall Stadium full time and, return to his former graces. Blewett captured six main events at Wall, those victories includes the Garden State Classic and the Woody's 105. Not only winning six races, he won his third Wall Stadium Modified Championship since 2002. During the 2017 season, he ran two dirt races at New Egypt Speedway after a two year absence in the Lou Cicconi machine renumbered 76. At the Sunoco World Series 150 at Thompson, Blewett qualified 9th and finished 19th in the final rundown. Blewett also won the Spooky Spectacular.
On October 26, 2002, Blewett won his second Track Title. The 29th Annual Turkey Derby which Blewett nearly won, which was the Tour Type Modified event which his car had worn tires that forced his car to spin out of control. After the spin, Blewett backed into Ken Woolley, Jr. (who led most of the race) in anger, and Blewett clawed his way back to finish a respectable third behind 1981 Champion Jamie Tomaino, and Ken Woolley, Jr (won the event).
Blewett's racing started at a high note, by winning Opening Night at Wall, that placed him on top of the points. He lost the points lead at least three times One: black flagged for rough riding, Two: involved in a minor accident, and Three: Smashed in the rear at a double points event which was a 76 lapper. Fans, Family, Friends and himself felt that his hopes of winning the track title were over but, they were not disappointed for long. The next week after losing valuable points from the 76 lapper, John III (Blewett's brother) wrecks Harry Reed (who replaced Blewett in the top spot after the 76 lapper) from the competition, and that opened the door to Blewett, and he regained the top spot for the remainder of the season, and on September 29, 2001 Blewett won his first Wall Township Speedway Title by defeating Harry Reed and multi time track titlist Dave Michel in tow. At Turkey Derby, Blewett won two out of the three features, and his hopes of winning overall went up in smoke when he tangled with fellow competitor, Tim Arre. Brother John won the overall title which was his second.

Blewett captured the 100 Lap Victory in the 59th Opening Edition at the renamed Wall Stadium since 2001. Blewett won his 30th career Modified main event in the Race of Champions 100 lap race. He drew the pole from a blind draw, and held off NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour fellow Tony Ferrante, Jr. The Twin 30 event, was not a good sign when Blewett severely damaged his car, in qualifying it was damaged enough to put it on the sidelines, and Blewett jumped into Stu Paer's No. 2 for the two features, finishing a very respectable second, and crashed out in the second credited a lackluster 12th.
In the start of the 2000 season, John III drove the car in the first two races at Wall. The first week, finishing second to Tim Arre, and second week crashed out and credited 22nd. The third week on, Blewett started to finish some of the races in the top 10, few in the top 15, a couple in the top 5, and seven days before his 20th birthday he snagged his first career win. Blewett ended up sixteenth in the points because he got into a few skirmishes with other competitors which drawn him to suspension so, Blewett went to race at the Flemington Speedway, and he raced only three events which it did not seem gel.
