OSWEGO, NY - NASCAR Weekly Racing Series National Champion Ted Christopher is among the record number of pre-race entries for this year's Sunoco Race of Champions Modified 200 at Oswego Speedway. The race is set to take place this Friday and Saturday October 5th and 6th.

Christopher will earn over $160,000 for his national championship title and has certainly logged more travel miles than most teams in the nation. Christopher's 15 victories in 18 starts at Thompson International Speedway vaulted him to his first ever national title.

He will be competing aboard the Brady Bunch #00 Modified in the Sunoco Race of Champions Modified 200 again this year and the team is more focused then ever. The R.o.C is one event that Christopher has yet to capture and is a top priority now on his list. His commitment to winning the event was very evident last year as he flew to the speedway after competing in a Busch Grand National North event at the Limerock Speedway on the same day. Christopher started 41st in the field and battled George Kent over the second half of the race. Kent held on for his third R.o.C title with Christopher winding up in second.

For the Brady Bunch team this year's focus will be different. The team will be on hand Friday evening to take full advantage of practice as well as qualifying. Christopher will also participate in an autograph session on Friday evening. The hopes of starting toward the front of the Modified 200 field has the team working overtime on pre-race preparations.

Over 50 pre-entered top northeast Modified teams will be chasing him as they try to capture the prestigious R.o.C title. Over 70 teams are expected to be in competition as the pre-entry list is the strongest since the event moved to Oswego Speedway in 1996. Past winners George Kent, Jan Leaty, Sege Fidanza and Tony Hirshcman headline an impressive list of pre-entered teams.
