The 2008 NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour Champion, whom has raced and won in almost every type of car from SK Modifieds to Late Models to Camping World East Series, will make his return to Sprint Cup competition this weekend at New Hampshire behind the wheel of Kirk Shelmerdine's No. 27 Toyota.

Christopher will be one of 11 go-or-go-homers currently on the entry list for this weekend's event, meaning he must beat at least three of them in order to make Sunday's race.

Christopher has six Sprint Cup series starts on his resume with the last coming in September of 2006 in the Slyvania 300 at New Hampshire in the No. 27 for Shelmerdine. Christopher has also competed in Nationwide, Camping World Truck and even two Rolex 24 Hours of Daytona events during his illustrious racing career.
