Keith Rocco And Ted Christopher Rise In NASCAR Whelen All-American Series National Standings

In a change of pace of late, Lee Pulliam leads the NASCAR Whelen All-American Series national standings for a second consecutive week.

Pulliam is the first driver in over a month to keep the top spot in the standings for more than a week. When he went to the top of the standings last week, Pulliam of Semora, N.C., was the fourth different driver at the top of the standing in as many weeks.

But there was plenty of movement behind Pulliam, a Southeast based Late Model driver.

Keith Rocco of Wallingford, the 2010 Whelen All-American Series national champion, moved from third to second in the standings. Ted Christopher of Plainville, the 2001 national champion, moved from fifth to fourth in the national standings.

C.E. Falk III, who was second last week, fell to third nationally.

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.

Pulliam has 14 victories, 18 top-fives and 19 top-10’s in 21 starts this year, good for 730 points.

Rocco has 10 victories, 19 top-five’s and 23 top-10’s in 30 starts this year, good for 680 points. Rocco competes in the SK Modified divisions at the Waterford Speedbowl, Stafford Motor Speedway and Thompson International Speedway.

Christopher has five victories, 24 top-five’s and 27 top-10’s in 31 starts this year, good for 649 points. He competes in an SK Modified full-time at Thompson and Stafford and in a Tour Type Modified at Riverhead (N.Y.) Raceway.

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 629 points based on his eight wins, 20 top-five’s and 25 top-10’s in 29 starts this year.
