The teen that shocked many with his exploits in the SK Modified division at Stafford Motor Speedway in 2015 will add to that list of personal feats at the historic half-mile on Oct. 4.

Ronnie Williams of Tolland will make his NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour debut at the NAPA Fall Final 150 on Oct. 4 at Stafford Motor Speedway.

Williams will drive a Ted Christopher owned ride in the event.

“It’s pretty exciting,” William told RaceDayCT Wednesday. “The Tour is something I’ve wanted to do my whole life. I’ve been watching the Tour my whole life. It’s a new step into my dream and hopefully maybe I can possibly do something great with it.”

The 18-year old Williams, a freshman at Nichols College, is closing out his second season in the SK Modified division. He had one win as a rookie and then burst out for six wins this season.

“This year has been something else,” Williams said. “To get six wins, and we’re hoping to go for the most wins and get that seventh win in the Fall Final. I’ve never had seven wins in my life in one year. I just hope everything continues on after this year. I hope this wasn’t my peak. I don’t think it will be.”

Williams, who expects to be running the same No. 59 he runs on his SK Modified at Stafford in the Tour event, will carry sponsorship from NAPA of Tolland, Tick Free Organic Tick Control, Critical Signs and Advice One.

Williams said he’ll take a mindset of focus and fun to the Fall Final weekend.

“I’m just going to go into it and have fun with it,” William said. “I’ve got the opportunity and the guys and the car. Now it’s up to me. It’s going to be a fun weekend in general, I love the Spring Sizzler and the Fall Final weekends [at Stafford]. I’ll be running 40 laps with the SK [Modified] and 150 with the Tour car, it might be a little stressful, but I’ll make it fun.”


  1. All you Ted Christopher bashers out there should take note of this wonderful opportunity he is providing for Ronnie Williams. Ted is a fierce competitor, but he is also a really good guy.

    I agree with Chris D. When a veteran and champion step up to help out the eager, upcoming and talented new generation of drivers, it shows class and a commitment to the future of the sport. No question, Ronnie and his #59 team have had a great sophomore season, maybe the best in the history of Stafford, but I’ll bet he’s not done yet. This young man is something special. He’s my odds on favorite to win the last SK race. What would be cool is Ronnie finishing in front of TC in the Fall Final somewhere up front. I wonder if Our Motorsports might be interested in switching drivers if that happened!
    Good luck kid. Have a fun weekend.
