New England racer Ted Christopher dies in plane crash

...Dundas and the 59-year-old Christopher were the only two aboard the Mooney M20-C plane when it crashed. North Branford police Lt. James Lovelace confirmed in an email Sunday that Dundas was the pilot and Christopher was the passenger.

Police found no evidence of fire or an explosion accompanying the crash. The cause is under investigation.

Christopher captured 13 track championships and competed at every level of NASCAR during his career. In 2006, he was selected as one of the top 25 drivers in NASCAR Whelen All-American Series history.

On the Whelen tour and on New England short tracks, "Christopher was a throwback to NASCAR's roots," France said in a statement. "He was a tough racer's racer, and his hard driving style and candid personality endeared him to short track fans throughout the country."
