Our Motorsports to Field Two Cars at New Hampshire

New Hampshire LogoHUNTERSVILLE, N.C. (SEPTEMBER 21, 2015) – Our Motorsports announced today that Keith Rocco will return to drive the No. 22 Our Motorsports Chevrolet at next week’s NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour race at New Hampshire Motor Speedway. This will be Rocco’s first NWMT event since breaking his hand back in July.

Fielding a second entry at New Hampshire Motor Speedway, Ted Christopher will continue the momentum he built with the Our Motorsports team during Rocco’s recovery. Driving the No. 23 Chevrolet, Christopher will remain with the team on a race-to-race deal through the end of the season.

“I’m glad to be back in the No.22 this weekend at New Hampshire Motor Speedway,” said Rocco. “It’s been a long wait to get back in the seat for a longer race like this, but I am feeling good and ready to race with my teammate Teddy (Christopher).”

“I’m looking forward to another race with the Our Motorsports team,” said Christopher. “With their great equipment, Keith and I will be able to work in a draft which is key at New Hampshire. I’ve raced against Keith Waterford for a long time and we trade back and forth on the wins, it will be great to work alongside him as part of the Our Motorsports stable of drivers for the F.W. Webb 100.”

“It’s great to have both Keith and Teddy entered for New Hampshire,” said team owner Chris Our. That speaks volumes for our team and the work we have been doing this season. Brad (Lafontaine, crew chief) and Greg (Narducci) have worked with our team to prepare two strong cars for this week’s race.”

Rocco, Christopher, and the Our Motorsports team will head to New Hampshire Motor Speedway on Thursday, September 24th for the F.W. Webb 100.
