Stafford Springs, CT — Stafford Motor Speedway returned to Friday night NASCAR racing with fireworks on the track and high in the night time sky with a NASCAR Whelen All-American Series Fireworks Extravaganza program. Ted Christopher ended Woody Pitkat’s five-race winning streak and won his second SK Modified feature of the 2007 season, Corey Hutchings won the Late Model feature, Josh Sylvester won his second consecutive SK Light feature, Sean Foster won the Limited Late Model feature, and Jim Brice won the DARE Stock feature.
The 40-lap SK Modified® feature took the green flag with Willie Hardie charging from third to the lead on the opening lap. Ted Christopher quickly moved his way by both Lloyd Agor and Keith Rocco to move into second. A caution with 7 laps complete slowed the field and gave Christopher the opportunity to move by Hardie for the lead on the restart. The top-5 ran in line until lap-19 when Hardie fell back several spots from second as Rocco, Woody Pitakt, Jeff Malave, Kerry Malone, and Brad Hietala all moved by. Hietala was on the move in the middle stages of the race, working his way up to second behind Christopher. Several late caution periods set up a five-lap dash to the finish. Christopher was not to be headed as he led the final five laps to pick up his second SK Modified® feature win of the 2007 season. Hietala came home second, with Pitkat, Owen, and Hardie rounding out the top-5.
