WATERFORD – Ted Christopher went from flattened to flying on Saturday at the New London-Waterford Speedbowl.

A week after being involved in bad wrecks in two SK Modified features at the Speedbowl, Christopher returned in perfect fashion.

Christopher led every lap on the way to victory in the 35-lap NASCAR Whelen All-American Series SK Modified feature Saturday at the New London-Waterford Speedbowl.

It was the first victory of the season at the Speedbowl for Christopher, of Plainville. He became the seventh different winner in nine events this year in the division at the Speedbowl.

Diego Monahan of Quaker Hill was second and Keith Rocco of Wallingford third.

On June 25 Christopher was involved in a crash in the first of two 25-lap features for the division. His Prestige Motorsports team travelled to Plainville to get a backup car and returned to the track in time for the second feature. Christopher took the lead from Bo Gunning in that event on the first lap, but after an early caution, contact on the ensuing restart with Gunning left Christopher flattened against the turn one wall at the Speedbowl.

Saturday it looked like Christopher might have some drama to deal with on a restart with four laps remaining, with Monahan in second and Rocco third, but the final laps went perfect for him.

“Congratulations to them guys for running me clean this week,” Christopher said. “Diego was great to us. And Keith has always been. Last week was just, I’d have to say in one word, [BS]. But that’s the way it goes sometimes in this game.”

    I assume Ted’s previous poor finishes earned him the pole via handicapping… Is that correct?

    Sweet TC!!! Congrats from all of us!

  3. Frank, I think the 17 Gada car started on the pole, but TC took the lead from the outside.

    Shawn, do you know if Ted will be at Thompson next Saturday?
