Quarter Master Clutch Performance of the Week
Who Performed the Best In the Clutch This Week?
NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour
#36 Al-Lee Installations Chevrolet

Ted Christopher is a staple of short track racing in the Northeast.  Christopher has won everything he has climbed into from Modifieds, to Camping World East, to Super Late Models.  The simple fact is that Ted Christopher was born to be a racecar driver. 

His rap sheet is impressive, a NASCAR Weekly Series National Chamionship, a pair of regional titles and a slew track championships at Thompson International Speedway (CT) and Stafford Motor Speedway (CT).  The simple fact is that he has won everything…well, almost everything.

The NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour Championship had eluded him going into Thompson’s finale on Sunday.

Ted Christopher went into the final race of the season at Thompson Int’l Speedway with a 35-point lead over Matt Hirschman.  Christopher turned in a clutch performance as he ran up front all day long while Hirschman had trouble.  Christopher then put an exclamation point on his championship run by taking the lead with 20 laps to go, winning the race and the title at the same time.  

With his performance, Christopher was the majority vote-getter over Jason Hogan, Colt James, Brian Campbell, Alex Haase, Jay Fogleman, Darrell Wallace and Randy Cabral.          

Quarter Master salutes Ted Christopher for his “Clutch Performance of the Week.”  Christopher is the first repeat winner of the award.

Performing in the clutch is what seperates a winning driver from the rest of the pack.  Flexing muscle at the right time is something that true talents posess.  Often luck plays a big role in winning versus losing, but being able to squeeze just enough strength out at the perfect opportunity is what separates winners from losers.  Performing in the clutch doesn't necessarily mean winning, however; it's all about making the most from what you've got.

That's why Quarter Master, providers of winning clutches & driveline components to racers from Super Speedway to the Bullring, from IRL to Rally, from NASCAR to the "Weekend Warrior," is proud to honor a weekly "Clutch Performance of the Week" from the short track ranks of America.  Each week, an esteemed panel of short track industry insiders will vote on which drivers came through in the clutch.  The driver or team with the most votes will then be the "Clutch Performance of the Week."  At the end of the 2008 season, the driver or team that received the most votes throughout the season will then be the "Clutch Performer of the Year" and will be awarded a clutch kit from Quarter Master, valued at $3,500.
