  1. Who do you love baby. Second in points in the Stafford SK division and finds the magic to win the pole against the elite of the WMT. Honorable mention to a super good guy Rob Summers for a strong qualifying run.

  2. Two things. 1 Fuller might not be the easiest Dude to get along with but the man knows how to make race cars go fast. 2 this young man can wheel a car. If they can run for a championship it would be hard to bet against them in 2018. Great job by both.

  3. Fuller won’t run for a championship. Trust me on that one. If he would do it and stay focused yes this is a tough team but don’t bank on it.

  4. Modified Guy says

    Fuller is running the tour full time next year. Ask anyone on the crew, Chase or Rob.

  5. No mention of the 16 and 51 and where they qualified? They are only 2nd and 3rd in points. They are the story this weekend. The 16 got screwed today too. Noteworthy for sure!

  6. NH Mark,
    There’s another story focusing on the championship contenders after qualifying.

  7. Sucks when you have to go to a back up car when you are in contention for a title but I think they will be just fine. Justin has a fast ride also, gonna be a shoot out tomorrow and hopefully the 51 team will get their first championship!

  8. This car is a very fast car. Not a surprise honestly. Walk by their hauler at the track. First class all the way.

  9. Brian, I would be willing to bet that you or whomever you hear that from have never spoken a word to Fuller. You watch from the distance at the track like everyone else and judge someone trying to do a job. And btw he’s probably the best at that job in the garage. I’ve work with him and yes he’s very serious at the track but away he is one of the best guys we know. I worked with him in Bristol and learned more in a day than I did in years.

  10. Nice way to dump the leader of the race who clearly has a faster car & better driving skills. (At 16m17s)
