RICHTERBERG RACING TEAM UPDATE
Christopher Richterberg, Jr., Jr. Dragster Racecar Driver
Although Christopher just started racing in January of 2012, he is no stranger to the track!
Christopher has been traveling the AMRA and AHDRA racing circuit since he was 1 1/2 years old, with his dad, Christopher Sr. Christopher Sr. raced pro fuel Harley's in the AMRA racing circuit and acted as Crew Chief for numerous teams racing the AHDRA Circuit. Christopher Sr. recently retired from racing to support his son's racing career.
Christopher Jr. turned 8 on July 28, 2011. His gift, a long anticipated Junior Dragster!! Christopher Jr. rolled up his sleeves and did what needed to be done to get his Junior Dragster Competition License. Christopher Jr. is the one to watch at the track this season as he has already taken home his 4th consecutive win.
On January 28, 2012 he made his debut run, going out first round, due to tuning difficulties. During a recent interview with Chris Sr., he said "I'm use to making things go fast not slow, but we will get it next time" and get it they did!
February 25, 2012, Chris Jr. claimed his 1st win after qualifying 5th. March 11, 2012 he qualified 4th and claimed his 2nd consecutive win. Following his victory he was asked to make an exhibition run for the JEGS Cajun Sports National held at No Problem Raceway March 17th in Bell Rose, LA and was able to take home his first exhibition win! Although, the exhibition run was not for points, as racers know "a win is a win".
Christopher qualified first and earned his 3rd points win on March 24, again at No Problem Raceway in Bell Rose, LA.
Christopher Jr. Staked claim to his 4th consecutive points win on May 26th 2012 after qualifying 5th. and is currently number one in points leading the pack by 22 points, quite an accomplishment for this young man running his first season!
Christopher has been invited to represent No Problem Raceway during the Eastern Conference Nationals for the Junior Drag Racing League, being held at Thunder Valley in Bristol TN July 26th through the 28th.
Christopher would like to thank his sponsors for their support and allowing him the opportunity to race in the Junior Dragster Competitions.
