Over the years Christopher has established himself as one of the most successful and well known short track racers in the country. Christopher is a 1976 graduate of Plainville High School.

Christopher has won SK Modified championships at all three Connecticut state short tracks, Stafford Motor Speedway, Thompson International Speedway and the Waterford Speedbowl. He is the winningest driver in the history of Stafford Motor Speedway. He won the NASCAR Whelen All-American Series short track national championship in 2001.

Christopher is the third winningest driver in the history of the NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour, where he won a championship in 2008 and he also has 10 career NASCAR K&N Pro Series East victories.

Christopher’s lengthy list of racing accomplishments also includes starts in all three of NASCAR’s national touring divisions and two appearances in the 24 Hours of Daytona, the most prestigious sports car event in the United States.

Christopher is one of five individuals that will be enshrined this year, part of the Hall of Fame’s 16th induction class. He is the first person to be inducted based on accomplishments in motorsports. The induction dinner will be held on Oct. 5 in Plainville.
