C.E. Falk III Knocks Ted Christopher From Whelen All-American Series National Points Lead

Ted Christopher’s ascension to the top of the NASCAR Whelen All-American Series standings lasted one week.

C.E. Falk III of Virginia Beach, Va. used two wins, a second and a third place to vault from seventh to first in the standings. Falk competed in Late Model events at Langley Speedway in Hampton, Va., South Boston (Va.) Speedway and at Caraway Speedway in Sophia, N.C. last week.

Falk has 11 victories, 17 top-five’s and 19 top-10’s in 21 starts this year, good for 635 points.

Christopher, who competes in an SK Modified full-time at Thompson International Speedway and Stafford Motor Speedway and in a Modified at Riverhead (N.Y.) Speedway, went winless last weekend and fell to third in the standings.

Christopher has four victories, 19 top-fives and 22 top-10’s in 26 starts this year for 620 points.

Nate Monteith, who competes in a Late Model at Kingsport (Tenn.) Speedway and Greenville-Pickens Speedway (Greenville, S.C.), was second in the standings with 629 points. Monteith has seven wins, 15 top-fives and 17 top-10’s in 20 starts this year.

A driver’s best 18 results through Sept. 16 are counted toward their states and national point totals, and champions are decided on overall point total. Once a driver reaches 18 starts, their total would increase incrementally as they replace poorer runs with better results.

Under the point structure for the NASCAR Whelen All-American Series, a race winner receives two points for every car in the event up to 20 cars. Second place receives two fewer points and so on through the field. Race winners receive an additional five points. For example, if 20 cars are in the field, the winner receives 45 points, second place 38 and third 36. If there are 15 cars, the winner receives 35 points, second 28 and third, 26.

Keith Rocco, the 2010 national champion from Wallingford, is fourth in the national standings with 614 points. Rocco competes in the SK Modified divisions at Stafford, Thompson and the Waterford Speedbowl. He has eight victories, 14 top-five’s and 18 top-10’s in 25 starts.

Ryan Preece of Berlin, who has competed this year in the SK Modified divisions at Stafford and Thompson and in a Tour Type Modified at Riverhead, is sixth in the standings nationally with 600 points based on his six wins, 17 top-five’s and 21 top-10’s in 25 starts this year.
