Fuller will compete in six Whelen Modified Tour events this season and five Valenti Modified Racing Series events.

Fuller will race Whelen Modified Tour events at Thompson (April 6, Aug. 13, Oct. 19), New Hampshire Motor Speedway (July 12, Sept. 20) and Bristol (Tenn.) Motor Speedway (Aug. 20).

On the Valenti Modified Racing Series he will compete at Thompson (May 29, Oct. 18) and Stafford Motor Speedway (June 20, July 18, Aug. 29).

Fuller and his 15-40 Connection sponsored team competed in the Whelen Modified Tour UNOH Battle at the Beach at Daytona International Speedway last week, then the team ran two features at the World Series of Asphalt Stock Car Racing at the New Smyrna (Fla.) Speedway.

Fuller was 16th in the Battle at the Beach, which was contested on a .37 –mile temporary track on the backstretch at Daytona International Speedway on Feb. 18.

“I was disappointed with the finish, but starting in the back and getting caught up in a few cautions – its tough to come back from that,” Fuller said in a release. “I didn’t have radio connection with my spotter which was a challenge but by the end of the race, our lap times were just as good as the Top-5 cars. That gave me confidence and determination to finish out the week strong.”

At New Smyrna Fuller ran in the John Blewett III Memorial 76 on Feb. 19 (10th place) and then the Richie Evans Memorial 100 on Feb. 21 (sixth place).

“I’m really proud of the team and the way they worked to improve the car throughout the week,” Fuller said. “… Finishing in sixth place is very strong considering the top-level competition and we’re just getting started with the season.”

In Florida, Fuller’s car carried the image of 24-year old Josh Bell, a cancer survivor who is involved with 15-40 Connection, a non-profit group committed to raising awareness of the fact that cancer survival rates in teens and young adults ages 15 to 40 have barely improved since 1975, mostly because of delays in diagnosis.

“Having Josh on the car was great,” Fuller said. “We actually had a bunch of teams ask about him and how he was doing so it was a good deal. He’s a celebrity now. He might sign more autographs than I do at the next race.”

Rob Fuller Motorsports will host a racing season kickoff party Saturday at Thompson Speedway. For more information or to purchase tickets visist the special 15-40 Connection Fund Raiser Kickoff Party Page.
