(Press Release from Rob Fuller Motorsports)
After two tough races, Rob Fuller Motorsports is ready to start fresh with a visit to Victory Lane at New Hampshire Motor Speedway this weekend, as the NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour (NWMT) heads to the “Magic Mile” on September 26. Ron Silk will once again drive the 15-40 Connection Modified for the team and looks to pick up right where he left off at the track.
“We always seem to have a really good car at Loudon,” said Rob Fuller, team owner. “I’m not expecting anything less this time around. We have a lot of new parts and pieces, including a different chassis design with this car from LFR Chassis. We are looking forward to seeing what Ronnie has to say about it. It’s great to have a chassis company that refuses to fall behind the times. We are looking forward to doing some R&D for those guys.”
During the NWMT’s visit to the track in July, Silk and the RFM team competed in both the All-Star Shootout and the Andy Blacksmith 100. Silk scored an eighth and fifth place finish in the two races, while also leading a multitude of laps.
“I’m really looking forward to getting back to New Hampshire,” said Ron Silk. “We’ve had a rough time at the last couple of races, so it’s nice to return to a track we know we run well at. I know the guys have been working hard at the shop to put together this new car, so I’m excited to try it! Hopefully, we can get the win at New Hampshire and put together a strong finish to our season.”
While a suspension issue and crash during practice prevented the team from grabbing a win at Thompson Speedway or Bristol Motor Speedway, Rob Fuller Motorsports is confident they can get it done at New Hampshire despite the track being known as a tricky one.
“At New Hampshire, you have to have Lady Luck on your side,” said Fuller. “The air really wreaks havoc on open wheel cars there. This is the only track that we go to where drafting plays a huge role. The car has a lot to do with the race here more than other place, so when a team runs good here it feels great. You can have the best driver in the field and run tenth or have the opposite happen. A great car will carry a driver here more so than any other track.”
As Rob Fuller Motorsports prepares to go to battle at New Hampshire, they also continue to help 15-40 Connection battle cancer by raising awareness of early cancer detection.
