The NASCAR Modified Tour regular traveled south from his Plainfield, Connecticut home to compete in the series' first-ever event. Christopher led the final 85 laps in the 150-lap race earning $1,825 for his efforts. Jay Foley finished in second place after starting on the outside pole. Jamie Tomaino wound up third after starting back in 18th place. 

     Drivers leading during the race included; Jay Foley (1-26), J.R. Bertuccio (27-37), Jay Hedgecock (38-65) and Teddy Christopher (66-150). The race was slowed for cautions six times for a total of 27 laps.

     TIRES: All the competitors used Hoosier 27.0x13.0-15 M45 tires on their right side and 26.0x13.0-15 M30 on their left sides. Per the rules, competitors raced on the same tires they qualified on--with no tire changes during the race.

     Quote from Hoosier Open Wheel Asphalt Product Manager Irish Saunders:  "Ted is one of those drivers that can just about step into any pavement car and come out with good results and (car owner) Roger Hill's equipment is second to none."

     Quote from Teddy Christopher: "Those M45's are awesome. We ran some of our fastest laps at the end of the race and the tires looked like new. Hoosier has done their homework on these tires and I can't wait to run them again."

     The new NASCAR Whelan Southern Modified Tour currently has a 13-race schedule with its next race slated for April 2nd, at Ace Speedway in Altamahaw, NC.
