Christopher Building New Indoor Race Car
ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. – Ted Christopher, who has been the most prolific winner of Indoor racing events since Len Sammons Motorsports Productions brought indoor racing back to life in 2003, revealed that he and Donnie Preece, co-owner of the nearly invincible No. 13 three-quarter midget, have built a new car for 2014 action.
The car is scheduled for a test session at Borgers Speedway this Saturday pending weather issues and the completion of the car.
“It’s a copy of the other car but lighter,” Christopher said. “Bob Fill, who does a lot of the Late Models and Pro Stocks at Thompson and Stafford, helped with the building. It’s nothing crazy, some new ideas and some new angles.”
Christopher and Preece have retained their existing car as well and may field it as a second car in the Atlantic City or the Trenton TQ races.
“The one big difference between the cars is that this one has power steering,” Christopher said. “It should make it a little easier to wheel.”
The newly designed car will have a lot to live up to. Since 2009, Christopher has won an outstanding seven of 16 Indoor Races he has entered. Christopher also won the overall Indoor Series title in 2011 and 2012.
Christopher won the NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour championship in 2008. He has 42 career wins on that tour alone.
In 2014 Christopher will look to dethrone Anthony Sesely of Matawan, N.J., who won the Fatheadz Indoor Series title last year on the heels of his first career Atlantic City Indoor Race victory.
Fatheadz Eyewear will be returning as the series sponsor and will pay bonuses to the top three overall TQ Midget drivers from the two race series. Drivers will receive points based on their qualifying efforts and feature finishes from Friday and Saturday night at both events towards the overall series crown.
The NAPA KNOW HOW Atlantic City Indoor Race Weekend will be followed by the first ever Battle of Trenton two-day, indoor racing event at the Sun National Bank Center in Trenton, N.J. Both races will feature top drivers from at least ten different States and Canada competing for the Fatheadz Eyewear TQ Midget Racing Series overall title.
