Team owner Danny Watts confirmed Thursday that Woody Pitkat will drive full-time for his team in 2018 on the NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour.

Pitkat took over the Watts owned ride following the death of short track racing legend Ted Christopher on Sept. 16 of last year. Christopher was killed in a plane crash while flying to Riverhead (N.Y.) Raceway to compete for Watts in a Whelen Modified Tour event. Pitkat ran the final three events of the 2017 season for Watts. In addition to running full-time on the Whelen Modified Tour, Pitkat will – as usual – have his hand in a few other rides. He will once again run full-time in the SK Modified division at Thompson for team owner Stan Mertz and also in the Late Model division at Thompson for owner Jeff Hartwell.

With 18 divisions on tap for the 55th Sunoco World Series of Speedway Racing this Friday through Sunday at Thompson Speedway Motorsports Park (CT), there are always a number of drivers who will never limit their time to just one division.

While three or even four divisions in the weekend have been done before, the ever-versatile Woody Pitkat is taking it to another level, as he will enter six different divisions this weekend. Pitkat will start Friday running the Granite State Pro Stock Series 60-lap feature in the No. 42 car and the Thompson NASCAR Whelen All-American Series Late Model race in his usual No. 91CT ride. Saturday is a combination of full-bodied and open-wheel cars as Pitkat will see action in the No. 07MA Late Model for the American-Canadian Tour 75-lap showcase, and then move to the No. 52 Tour-type Modified for the Valenti Modified Racing Series feature for 50 laps around Thompson. Sunday is all about Modifieds, as he starts off in the No. 6 Sunoco/SK Modified for a 30-lap sprint and finally finishing the weekend with the No. 82 Modified for the 150-lap season finale for the NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour.

This past Saturday was a dark day for the sport of auto racing when racing icon Ted Christopher lost his life in an aviation accident while en route to Riverhead Raceway on Long Island.

That night the race went on and now the tour is ready to move forward to New Hampshire Motor Speedway for the F.W. Webb 100 on Saturday. Rejoining the fray will be the Watts-owned team, who are set on moving forward in the true Ted Christopher spirit. Taking the wheel of the No. 82 is none other than Christopher’s friend and one of many on-track rivals, Woody Pitkat. Like Christopher, Pitkat is a Connecticut born driver who calls Stafford Motor Speedway his home track, with Christopher and Pitkat sitting one and two respectively on the all-time win’s list at that track.
