Sprint Cup Series veteran won both 2010 NHMS events
Daytona Beach, FL — While the regular competitors on the NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour will tell you that they enjoy racing against the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series’ Ryan Newman, you can bet that they’d also be more than happy to defeat him, something they were not able to do a year ago.
Newman went 3-for-3 overall in his Whelen Modified Tour moonlight in 2010, including a sweep of the two races at New Hampshire Motor Speedway. The veteran of many forms of auto racing from South Bend, Ind., posted an average finish of 21st in his first three Modified races at NHMS, but he and the No. 7 Aggressive Hydraulics/Menards Chevrolet team led by Kevin ‘Bono’ Manion had it all figured out last year.
Hoping to lead the charge to dethrone Newman at the ‘Magic Mile’ is Ted Christopher. With 10 total triumphs overall at NHMS, and two wins in five races so far this year, he looks to be up to the challenge.
