Ted Christopher’s hopes of adding another division to his historic resume at New Hampshire Motor Speedway disappeared in the smoke and steam of a blown motor on Saturday.
Christopher had been scheduled to run a Scott Mulkern owned car in Sunday’s historic first visit to New Hampshire Motor Speedway for the Pro All Stars Series.
But during the first practice session Saturday in Loudon, the motor blew on Christopher’s car.
“It stinks because I was really looking forward to running that car up there,” Christopher said. “Those cars are flying up there.”
The Pro All Stars Series will run a 60-lap feature at New Hampshire Motor Speedway Sunday on a card that also includes a PASS Sportsman event and a North East Mini Stock Tour event.
Christopher, of Plainville, last drove for Mulkern when the Pro All Stars Series made its one visit ever to Stafford Motor Speedway in 2012. Christopher won that event.
Christopher was hoping to be racing Sunday looking to break a tie at the top of the track’s all-time win list. Christopher has five NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour victories and five K&N Pro Series East victories at New Hampshire Motor Speedway. He sits tied at the top of the track’s all-time win list with Mike Stefanik, who has eight Whelen Modified Tour wins and two K&N Pro Series East wins.
In addition to his starts Whelen Modified Tour and K&N Pro Series starts in Loudon, Christopher has also started five Sprint Cup Series events at the track and four Xfinity Series events.
