“All of us at Stafford Speedway are devastaed over the tragic plane crash that claimed the life of our longtime friend Ted Christopher and the aircraft’s pilot, Charles Dundas,” said Stafford Speedway GM Mark Arute.
“For over three decades Ted Christopher has been an inspiration for both young and old at Stafford Speedway. His passion for racing thrilled fans and pushed fellow competitors to their limits. He was the backbone of the modified community, and a role model to the countless young drivers in paddock areas throughout the Northeast. He was not only one of the greatest drivers ever to compete at Stafford Speedway, he was also a great friend to many. His hard driving style, off track antics, passion for short track racing, and legendary persona will be missed by both drivers and fans. His legacy will remain with us forever and he will be missed by all of us here at Stafford Speedway.”
“Our thoughts and prayers are with his wife Quinn, brother Michael, sister Judy, mom Lucy and the entire Christopher family and friends.”
