Sources: Meghan Fuller To Make SK Light Modified Debut Oct. 24 At Stafford Speedway

The 2020 racing season at Stafford Motor Speedway ended in a most disappointing fashion Friday for Street Stock division driver Meghan Fuller.

Fuller was running second on the final lap of Friday’s 20-lap Street Stock division feature – and in position to secure her first track championship – when she was hit from behind and spun out in turn three by Brandon Michael. Fuller ended up credited with a 13th place finish Friday and Zack Robinson secured his second consecutive Street Stock title at Stafford. 

But did Fuller’s season at Stafford Speedway actually end Friday night? It seems not. 

The bloodlines of the Fuller family in Northeast racing circles gravitate toward Modified racing. And getting behind the wheel of a Modified for the first time is exactly what the 18-year old daughter of former NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour champion Rick Fuller will be doing on Oct. 24 at Stafford Speedway. 

Multiple sources have confirmed to RaceDayCT that Meg Fuller will make her SK Light Modified debut on Oct. 24 at Stafford Speedway.

The SK Light Modified division will run a 20-lap non-points event on Oct. 24 as part of a racing card anchored by the $10,000 to win Tri-Track Open Modified Series CBYD Modified Classic 81.

Neither Meghan Fuller or Rick Fuller were available for comment immediately on Tuesday.  

Meghan Fuller came into Friday night’s NAPA Championship Night Street Stock event holding a six-point lead over second place Robinson in the division standings. Her 13th place finish dropped her to third in the season’s final standings behind Robinson and Chris Meyer, who moved to second place after the final event. 

Meghan Fuller finished the season with four victories and 10 top-fives in 14 starts in 2020 at Stafford, which included a span of three consecutive victories going into the final night of action. She finished second in the Street Stock standings in both 2018 and 2019. She has 10 victories in the Street Stock division over the last three seasons at Stafford.

  1. Jon Blanchette says

    Great news! The name Fuller and Modified go together like a hand and a glove. I bet Megan runs real good and I will be there to see it!

  2. I’ll go way out on a limb and guess she won’t take anybody out intentionally and she might even impress us like she did with a street stock. Best of luck to the real champion

  3. The people’s Champion, Meagan Fuller is taking the next logical step in Her racing career. Her racing bloodlines have McCallum on Mom’s side, Fuller from her Dad Rick, so She’s a natural at the wheel of a race car. She learned her lessons well in the lower entry divisions, Now it’s time to climb the ladder . Who better to learn the open wheel game from, Her Uncle and Father. She’s gotta be attractive for Owners along with sponsors due to the way she handles herself in victory or defeat. I mentioned this before the latest events that took her out of the Championship, That the next logical step was SK lites.
    Meagan has an army of loyal fans that will follow her whatever she races. Good Luck Meagan ..!!

  4. Yes indeed, great news. Wish her the best of luck in her debut, and hope she has some fun out there.

  5. Dad’s on the record as saying the Lights were the next best step but also it couldn’t be done “on my dime”.
    What they put together will be as interesting as the appearance. A one shot ride or the first step to full time next season. Premium equipment or the the old Street Stock power.
    I’m not going to express any wild eyed optimism about this introduction in terms of results. It’s a howdy doody modifieds and that’s all.. Should be a big field and the racing can get rough. Cassandra Cole may have dropped out because of the rough stuff and Sammie Anderson favors Waterford now.
    If it is long term I’m anticipating a careful, strategic, intelligent approach to the learning curve with steady and inexorable progress. That’s the Fuller way. Clearly she has just about the best mentors that any modified driver could have built in.
