NASCAR champion Ted Christopher passed away Saturday after being involved in a plane crash in Connecticut. He was 59.
Christopher is one of two drivers to win the NASCAR Whelen All-Amercian Series national title and a touring series championship. The Plainville, Connecticut, driver won the short-track national title in 2001 and the NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour crown in 2008. He was the winningest driver at a pair of Connecticut's historic tracks: Stafford Motor Speedway and Thompson Speedway Motorsports Park. He was one of two people on board a plane that went down in Guilford, Connecticut, Saturday afternoon. The crash claimed the life of both. Christopher was named one of the top 25 drivers in NASCAR's weekly series in 2006, when the series celebrated its 25th anniversary. In 2008, Stafford named a section of its grandstand in his honor. Christopher made six starts in the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series, 21 in the NASCAR XFINITY Series, and two in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series. He had been scheduled to drive the No. 82 Horton Avenue Materials Chevrolet at New York's Riverhead Raceway on Sat Sep 16 - 9:14 PM
