IN NASCAR FEATHERLITE MODIFIED SERIES

8-27-2002

Ted ChristopherSTAFFORD SPRINGS, CT (August 23) -- Teddy Christopher continued his domination at Stafford Motor Speedway on Friday winning his 4th consecutive race at the famous 1/2-mile facility. The win was Christopher's series leading fourth of the season and 10th career win in the NASCAR Featherlite Modified Series. The Connecticut driver led the final 18 laps of the 150-lap race to take the win in the ASB American Classic 150.

Thirty-one cars started the race that featured Eddie Flemke and Chuck Hossfeld on the front row after the post qualifying redraw. Jerry Marquis, the 2000 series champion, won the Bud Pole Award but drew the sixth starting "pill".

The race featured seven lead changes among four different drivers. Those leading during the event were Hossfeld, Eddie Flemke, Christopher and Jerry Marquis.

Christopher started the race in 15th before adroitly working his way up through the competitive field and taking his first turn at the lead on lap 64. His lead would last only six circuits before giving way to previous race winner Eddie Flemke. But Christopher would regain the lead for good on lap 133 en route to the win. Christopher earned $8,050 for the win, while Flemke settled for second place and a $4,055 payout. Rounding out the top three was Jerry Marquis. Marquis collected $3,970 for third.

Amazingly, over half of the race starters finished the event on the lead lap. Chuck Hossfeld and rookie Todd Szegedy took fourth and fifth, respectively.

The race had seven cautions periods for a total of 33 laps.

Jerry Marquis leads in the series standings with 1891 points followed closely by Eddie Flemke with 1873 markers. Rookie Todd Szegedy is narrowly in third with 1843 points--closely followed by Rick Fuller with 1839 points.

The NASCAR Featherlite Modified Series will resume competition on August 31, at Waterford Speedbowl in Waterford, CT.
