   The Chrome Horn - Modified Racing Series




Plainville, CT veteran, Ted Christopher finally put it all together and won his first Modified Racing Series event, sponsored by BobValentiAutomall.com, Friday night September 10, at the Stafford Motor Speedway, Stafford, CT.

Christopher bested a field of 27 other racers to win the inaugural “Shark Cycle 100”. The all-time leading winner at Stafford became the 12th different MRS winner this season. His victory also makes him a guaranteed starter for the North-South Shootout November 5th at the Concord, NC Speedway.

For four years Christopher has been seeking a win with the MRS. “It’s really fitting that I had to wait this long and do it at Stafford. Stafford’s always been so good to me. This car has been really fast, we were pretty good in practice, and in the heat race. We changed it around and it was like a rocket. I knew we had something really good.”

Christopher was followed to the finish by Ronnie Silk, Norwalk, CT, Rowan Pennink, Huntingdon Valley, PA, Jeff Malave, Manchester, CT, and Chris Pasteryak, Lisbon, CT. Sixth through tenth were Mike Stefanik, Coventry RI, Bryon Chew, Inlet, NY, Richard Savary, Canton, MA, and Bobby Santos III, Millis, MA.

Point leader Jon McKennedy, E. Chelmsford, MA, who finished 12th, has a seventeen point lead over Dwight Jarvis, Ascutney, VT for the series championship while, Gary Casella has a nine point lead over McKennedy in the car owner point standings.

The race which took 38:01 to complete was slowed by two caution periods on laps 24 and 34.

The Modified Racing Series will next compete at Seekonk Speedway, Seekonk, MA October 9 and 10
