Tony Eury Jr. To Make Modified Crew Chief Debut

Todd Szegedy Will Pilot No. 15 15-40 Connection Modified At “The Last Great Colosseum”

MOORESVILLE, N.C. (August 15, 2016) – LFR Chassis will be back in action in the NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour (NWMT) at Bristol Motor Speedway, as Todd Szegedy and Rob Fuller Motorsports team up for the Bush’s Beans 150. The team is thrilled to announce that veteran NASCAR crew chief, Tony Eury Jr., will make his NWMT crew chief debut this week.

Although this will mark Tony Eury Jr.’s first race as a NWMT crew chief, Eury has an impressive resume as a NASCAR crew chief and looks forward to broadening his list of accomplishments with Rob Fuller Motorsports in Bristol.

“After getting to know Todd, I am excited to be his crew chief in Bristol,” said Eury. “I think we have a legitimate shot to win, and we’re going to have some fun with it as well. I’ve paid attention to how the track is from past modified races, and I think working on super late models every week can be applied to working on the modified car as well. We are going in with a game plan, but I might bring a few ideas to the table that we can try and see what happens!”

Todd Szegedy, who is running a limited schedule in the NWMT with Rob Fuller Motorsports, will be back in the No. 15 15-40 Connection car. Although the Bush’s Beans 150 will be Szegedy’s only third race of the season with LFR Chassis, he is no stranger to competing in the modifieds at Bristol.

Out of seven starts at Bristol, Szegedy has recorded three second place finishes, along with a Top-5 finish in the series. Szegedy looks to record another solid finish at “The World’s Fastest Short Track,” a place he knows he can win at.

“Bristol is my favorite track,” said Szegedy. “It’s got sheer speed, yet it’s fast enough where you need to respect the track. It’s got multiple racing grooves, which is what I really love about the track. I want to go there, get the pole and then win the race – it’s that simple. I think we are capable of doing just that with the equipment Rob provides.”

Ryan Newman will also return to the NWMT with LFR Chassis in the No. 7ny Aggressive Hydraulics car. Newman has had success in his six NWMT starts at Bristol, recording two wins and three Top-5’s at the infamous short track. Rob Fuller will crew chief for Newman, as Newman looks to add on to his exceptional list of finishes at Bristol.

“I’m looking forward to working with Ryan,” said Fuller. “I know we have a good baseline with the LFR car, so it’s just a matter of getting him where he’s comfortable. With those guys not running very often it’s tough to keep up, and the teams and drivers in this division are tough for sure. Hopefully I can help these guys and we can have fun at the same time.”

LFR Chassis To Pull Double Duty at New Hampshire Motor Speedway

Posted on 12 July 2016 by Rob Fuller

LFR Chassis To Pull Double Duty at New Hampshire Motor Speedway

Todd Szegedy and Christian Eckes Will Both Pilot 15-40 Connection Cars For LFR Chassis

MOORESVILLE, N.C. (July 12, 2016) – LFR Chassis will be pulling double duty this week at New Hampshire Motor Speedway, as Todd Szegedy will be back in action in the NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour (NWMT) with Rob Fuller Motorsports, and Christian Eckes will once again represent the LFR Driver Development Group in the NASCAR K&N Pro Series East (NKNPSE). 15-40 Connection is on board with LFR Chassis as the primary partner for both entries.

LFR Chassis President, Rob Fuller, is looking forward to having two drivers competing in the different series this weekend and is confident in both drivers’ experience.

“This weekend is by far my favorite weekend of the season,” said Fuller. “To have Christian Eckes making his debut at Loudon in our K&N car is a huge testament to how far this company has come and how far Christian has developed as a driver. With a veteran like Todd (Szegedy) helping Christian learn the ropes of this tricky racetrack I think that’ll be a huge benefit for Christian and our entire LFR group.”

“We will use the All-Star race on Friday in the modified to test for the big race on Saturday and I really believe with a driver like Todd that we have as good of a chance as anyone there to get wins in both races,” continued Fuller. “Christian will be making his first laps at Loudon but the way his season has been going I wouldn’t be surprised if he’s there battling for a win at the end of the race.

“We have a lot of great things going on here at LFR lately and we’re looking forward to making them public. Having a great weekend here would just be the icing on the cake and with the drivers that we have in our stable I am more than confident that this will be the case.”

LFR Chassis is excited to have the NWMT veteran driver and former series champion Todd Szegedy back in the driver’s seat this weekend. Szegedy won the NWMT Championship in 2003, and is looking forward to adding another solid finish to his resume at New Hampshire Motor speedway where he recorded wins in 2007, 2011, 2013, and 2015.

“I’ve always enjoyed running at New Hampshire,” said Szegedy. “You have higher speeds and drafting there, and that’s something I’ve been able to excel at. I’m at 19 wins right now, and I would love to get another victory before the season is up and have 20 wins under my belt. I can’t ask for anything more with the car and equipment Rob has given me, and I think we could be a contender to win with the right set-up and making the right decisions on the track.”

Christian Eckes, will make his third NASCAR K&N Pro Series East start this week in the No. 15 15-40 Connection Ford Fusion. Eckes has placed in the Top-10 in both NKNPSE starts with LFR Driver Development Group this season, and hopes to continue the streak of solid finishes in New Hampshire.

“This will be my first time at New Hampshire and I am really looking forward to the competition at this track,” said the Greenville, NY native. “My first two K&N starts have gone well, but they both had some issues on my part. I believe that going into New Hampshire we will be able to work on those issues, and a Top-3 or Top-5 is surely not out of reach.”

15-40 Connection has partnered with Rob Fuller for the past three years, and will be featured on both cars this week. 15-40 Connection focuses on early cancer detection and teaching people how to become active in their own health care by recognizing early signs and warnings as well as when they should seek help from a medical professional.

“We attended the 15-40 Connection Gala on Sunday and it was another great event held by Mr. Coghlin, Trica Laursen and their entire group,” said Fuller. “We are hoping to get 15-40 Connection in Victory Lane at Loudon!”

Rob Fuller Motorsports Makes 2016 Debut Start

Posted on 22 April 2016 by Rob Fuller

Rob Fuller Motorsports Makes 2016 Debut Start

Todd Szegedy To Pilot the 15-40 Connection Modified at Stafford Motor Speedway

SHREWSBURY, Mass. (April 21, 2016) – Rob Fuller Motorsports (RFM) will be making their first start of the 2016 NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour (NWMT) at Stafford Motor Speedway with Todd Szegedy behind the wheel. The team will have a Research and Development focus at the track this year while continuing to promote the message of its charity partner 15-40 Connection.

“This is actually the debut for Rob Fuller Motorsports at Stafford,” said Rob Fuller, team owner. “I’ve been to a lot of races there but never actually fielded a car there. We have been incredibly busy this winter and really hadn’t touched our car since Thompson last year which made the Icebreaker tough to attend. If we cannot be 100% we simply won’t go, which was the case at Thompson.”

RFM’s goal for the 2016 race season is to serve as an in-house Research and Development team for LFR Chassis. The group will be experimenting new equipment, set-ups and technology throughout the season to help the chassis company continue to progress and provide cutting-edge services to its customers.

“R&D is really what I enjoy doing,” Fuller continued. “I like to analyze data and come up with set-ups that most teams do not have the resources to do themselves. When we come up with a proven set-up then we can share what we learned with the customers at LFR Chassis. To make the teams spend their time and money to develop a product just doesn’t make sense. It also leaves the customer further ahead than the company and that’s just bad business. This will be a great year for our team I believe.”

Piloting the 15-40 Connection modified entry will be Todd Szegedy, a 19-time winner and 2003 NWMT Champion. Szegedy, who raced for RFM in 2014, is looking forward to getting the opportunity to experiment with set-ups and equipment throughout the season.

“I’m very excited to be back working with Rob and his team this year and look forward to our first race of the season at Stafford,” said Szegedy. “When I first worked with them two years ago, the cars and company were new so we had a lot of trial and error at the track. Now the cars have been raced and have more reliability, so we can go back to doing some R&D but have a much stronger baseline to refer to. I’ve been racing a long time and I’m at the point in my career where I enjoy trying new things, so I’m looking forward to helping LFR Chassis improve their performance even more.”

The Ridgefield, Conn. native has a long history of success at Stafford Motor Speedway, collecting four wins, 23 Top-5’s and 31 Top-10 finishes in his career.

“Stafford is one of my most-visited tracks,” Szegedy continued. “I enjoy racing there a lot. We’re going out there this weekend with no points on the line to worry about and look to just have fun while learning a couple new things in the process! I do have quite a few wins at Stafford, but I haven’t won the NAPA Spring Sizzler yet so that’d be a cool bucket list item to potentially check off this weekend, especially with the support of 15-40 Connection on board. They are a really great organization, and I want to promote them the best I can at the track.”

RFM’s entry at Stafford Motor Speedway will be the familiar 15-40 Connection paint scheme, as the race team’s partnership with the non-profit is entering its fourth year. 15-40 Connection is driving a new cancer conversation to race fans across the country with by asking them a simple yet powerful question of if they would recognize a cancer symptom. The organization is also teaching fans the three simple steps that can help them recognize potential warnings signs of cancer.

“This is the fourth season that Rob Fuller Motorsports and 15-40 Connection have teamed up to empower the lifesaving advantage of early cancer detection,” said said Tricia Laursen, Executive Director of 15-40 Connection. “RFM are helping spread 15-40 Connection’s New Cancer Conversation that teaches people how to recognize and act on health changes that could be the early warning signs of cancer and how to work with your doctor to receive the best healthcare.”

Rob Fuller Motorsports announces Todd Szegedy as 2016 driver

Posted on 18 March 2016 by Rob Fuller

Rob Fuller Motorsports announces Todd Szegedy as 2016 driver

Szegedy to Compete in Select 2016 NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour Races 

SHREWSBURY, Mass. (March 17, 2016) – Rob Fuller Motorsports (RFM) is proud to announce the return of Todd Szegedy to its driver lineup for 2016.  Szegedy will pilot the 15-40 Connection Modified for select NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour (NWMT) races this season.

Szegedy, a 19-time winner and 2003 NWMT Champion, raced for RFM in 2014 and is excited to return this season for a number of reasons.

“For me it was a combination of a few things – I want the freedom not be locked into a full season schedule,” said Szegedy. “Also, this is an awesome opportunity to race at tracks that I really enjoy running at and I’ll be in top notch equipment with LFR Chassis. We can go there with the opportunity to win every race we enter. That combination was appealing to me.”

Team owner Rob Fuller is enthusiastic about having Szegedy back.

“It’s great to have Todd back in the RFM camp for sure,” said Fuller.  “Ron Silk had an opportunity to do more races than we wanted to commit to so I’m also proud to have provided a platform for him to showcase his talents to keep him in the minds of the modified owners.”

“Todd and I kept in touch and he would bring up how good the LFR cars drove and how much he loved to drive them,” continued Fuller.  “He was a big piece of the LFR puzzle when we started the company and its great to have him back. We will use him to run a few different LFR cars throughout the year. We have a plan to have him in a SK a couple times and possibly a couple Super races as well. We will have fun this year which is a high priority on both our lists!”

15-40 Connection will continue its partnership with RFM entering its third year with the team. 15-40 Connection is a non-profit organization driving a new cancer conversation. It starts with a simple yet powerful question “would you recognize a cancer symptom?” and teaches three simple steps to help you recognize potential warning signs of cancer.

“We are very excited to be working with Rob and the team again in 2016,” said Tricia Laursen, Executive Director of 15-40 Connection. “Partnering with them has been an amazing opportunity to bring 15-40 Connection’s education to race fans. We’re glad to be back with them, and to have Todd on board.”

Szegedy enjoys the opportunity to push the envelope and try new things on the race track. In 2014 he was the primary driver for the new LFR Chassis in the modified series and worked closely with Fuller to build the first competition notebook for the team.

“I felt that we had a small part in building the modified competition notebook for LFR Chassis and it helped the teams out at the tracks, even Doug Coby and the No. 2 last year (2015 NWMT Champions). I felt that we had a part in that. I like where LFR is heading – they have talented people and great race cars that are winning. That’s cool to be a part of. ”

More details on the RFM race schedule will be released soon.  For more information, please visit www.LFRChassis.com andhttp://NewCancerConversation.org.

Bobby Santos to Drive Rob Fuller Motorsports Modified in North-South Shootout

Posted on 29 October 2015 by Rob Fuller

Bobby Santos to Drive Rob Fuller Motorsports Modified in North-South Shootout

Santos Returning to LFR Chassis Modified For Second Time This Year

MOORESVILLE, N.C. (October 29, 2015) – Rob Fuller Motorsports will have an experienced racing veteran behind the wheel of its No. 15 modified during the upcoming North-South Shootout event at Concord Speedway on November 6-7, as Bobby Santos is slated to make his return to an LFR Chassis machine. Santos, the 2010 NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour champion, previously competed in an LFR Chassis modified at Oswego Speedway back in April.

“I’m looking forward to working with Bobby again at Concord Speedway,” said Rob Fuller, team owner. “Oswego Speedway was a last minute deal at a track I’d never been to on a tire we had never run before, and we still wound up second in practice there, so to go to a track we are both familiar with should be fun. It’s a great weekend of modified racing with both north and south teams competing. We should have four LFR Chassis cars in the field, which is double what it normally is, so I’m looking forward to watching everyone work together and see how we stack up at the end of the day.”

Santos’ first run in an LFR Chassis at Oswego Speedway did not go as planned, as he got swept up in an accident during a heat-race early on in the racing weekend. The North-South Shootout entry now provides him with a chance at redemption.

“I’m really excited for the opportunity to race for Rob again,” explained Santos. “He’s a great guy, and I want to do well for him and his team. Earlier this year we worked together but a crash ruined our day, so I’m looking forward to getting back into one of his cars and trying again. His program has had a lot of success this year, so I’m excited to see what I can learn from it during this race.”

Not only is Santos making his return to LFR Chassis, but he’s also making his return to the North-South Shootout, a race he last competed in back in 2008. He has raced in the event four times, with his best finish coming in 2007 when he placed third.

“I’m ready to be back racing in the North-South Shootout,” said Santos. “I haven’t won this event before, so I’m excited to have another shot at it! I enjoy Concord Speedway a lot too. I have a USAC Midget win there, so I know the track really well and love racing there. It’s a unique track, but lots of fun!”

Santos is also looking forward to mixing it up with some fresh faces while competing in his Rob Fuller Motorsports modified, as racers from across the country come to compete in this race.

“It’s always tough racing with people you’re not familiar with, but fun at the same time,” he said. “Some racers you get to know well and you know their tendencies, but with new racers it’s different. You need to be extra cautious at times but also extra aggressive. It’s definitely a different deal out on the track with them. You always have to expect the unexpected!”

Fans can keep track of Santos and Rob Fuller Motorsports’ weekend competing in the North-South Shootout at Concord Speedway on November 6 and 7 by following LFR Chassis on Facebook and Twitter. Fans can also check for updates on Rob Fuller Motorsports’s Facebook page as well.

Rob Fuller Motorsports and 15-40 Connection Continue Raising Awareness of Early Cancer Detection with Debut PSA

Posted on 15 October 2015 by Rob Fuller

Rob Fuller Motorsports and 15-40 Connection Continue Raising Awareness of Early Cancer Detection with Debut PSA

PSA Designed to Empower Race Fans With Education on Early Cancer Detection

SHREWSBURY, Mass. (Oct. 15, 2015) – Rob Fuller Motorsports and 15-40 Connection have come together to produce a Public Service Announcement (PSA) to educate race fans on the importance of paying attention to their health and empowering people to take action that leads to the lifesaving advantage of early cancer detection.

The PSA emphasizes the parallels between racing and health issues. Knowing how a race car should normally drive is key to a driver and team’s success at the track, and any issues – no matter how small – need to be checked out. Rob Fuller Motorsports and 15-40 Connection want race fans to realize the same goes for one’s health. To view the PSA, visit http://www.15-40.org/rfm/.

“This PSA is something that I really believe the racing world will understand,” said Rob Fuller, team owner. “The messaging 15-40 Connection is using in associating the importance of addressing an issue with an ill-handling racecar, or a racecar with a vibration, to a personal health change within your body makes perfect sense for race fans. It has been an amazing relationship to date with the organization, and I really believe that we are starting to make people realize the importance of recognizing a cancer symptom.”

Just as a driver needs to know how a race car performs at its best, race fans need to know how they feel when they feel great.. When your car is not running at its best, race teams take the time to diagnosis the problem and fix it. If you are not feeling your best the same logic applies. If a subtle change in your health persists for 2 weeks, it’s time to work with a doctor to figure out why so you can be treated and get back to feeling your best. This action also provides the lifesaving advantage of early cancer detection. Cancer often first reveals itself first as a subtle and persistent change in your health. This education could save a fan’s life.

”Working with Rob and the team has been an amazing partnership,” said Tricia Laursen, Executive Director, 15-40 Connection. “Their help in bringing 15-40 Connection’s new cancer conversation to race fans has been so important. Asking race fans, ‘would you recognize a cancer symptom?’ and introducing the three steps to early cancer detection is a vital part of what we do and we’re grateful to have Rob and his team on board to spread this message to help save lives through early detection.”

As 15-40 Connection points out 15 to 40 year olds are diagnosed with cancer much more frequently than young children, but survival rates for this age group have barely increased since 1975. To learn more about 15-40 Connection and how you can recognize the early warning signs of cancer, visit http://www.15-40.org.

Rob Fuller Motorsports’ 15-40 Connection Modified can next be seen in the final race of the 2015 NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour (NWMT) series at Thompson Speedway on October 18. Fans unable to see the action live at the track can catch the race when it airs on NBCSN on October 22 at 8 p.m. EST.

Special thanks to Glenn Perry and Christopher Navin for producing the PSA. More of their work can be seen at: www.gperryimages.com and www.christophernavin.com

Rob Fuller Motorsports to Introduce Ray Graham to NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour

Posted on 15 October 2015 by Rob Fuller

Rob Fuller Motorsports to Introduce Ray Graham to NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour

Graham to Pilot 15-40 Connection Modified in Series Finale Race at Thompson Speedway

SHREWSBURY, Mass. (Oct. 15, 2015) – In the final race of the 2015 NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour (NWMT) season, Rob Fuller Motorsports will be introducing the modified racing world to Ray Graham, a veteran racer and valued LFR Chassis customer. Rob Fuller Motorsports will be providing Graham with support and coaching during Sunday’s NWMT event at Thompson Speedway.

“I am looking forward to introducing Ray to the NASCAR Modified division at Thompson this weekend,” said Rob Fuller, team owner and President of LFR Chassis. “The RFM car is a house car for LFR Chassis and we like to try different set ups, use it when a customer gets into a situation where they need a car, or simply sell the car and get the LFR brand to more cars on the track.”

“That was the situation with Ray,” Fuller continued. “We met earlier this year and he decided to purchase this car and give the modifieds a try. I really enjoy going to tracks and helping racers understand their cars and giving them every opportunity to run well. This weekend will definitely be fun with the championship points battle as tight as it is and helping Ray with his debut.”

Fuller and his team will provide Graham with support and guidance on how to set up a modified for the race, coach him during any on-track activity and service the car during pit stops. For Rob Fuller Motorsports, this is an opportunity to ensure Graham gets a solid footing in the NWMT by providing all resources possible to him in his debut race.

Graham spent his entire life around racing, as his dad used to compete and take him to Fulton Speedway to watch Richie Evans, Jerry Cook and Geoff Bodine run modifieds. He began driving in the mid-1990’s when he competed in small block supers.

Graham has since frequently raced supermodifieds at Oswego Speedway and in the International Supermodified Association (ISMA) series. He won multiple races in both divisions, as well as an Oswego Speedway track championship. Graham also won both the 2010 and 2011 Mr. Supermodified, a premier race in the racing series.

“I can’t wait to get behind the wheel of the No. 15 15-40 Connection modified at Thompson Speedway,” said Graham. “Since I’ve met Rob and his team over at Rob Fuller Motorsports, it has been easy to see that they are at the top of their game. To be going into my first modified series race with their support and level of expertise is great. It couldn’t be a better debut for me.”

Cheer on Graham and Rob Fuller Motorsports in the final NWMT race of the season at Thompson Speedway on October 18. Fans unable to see the action live at the track can catch the race when it airs on NBCSN on October 22 at 8 p.m. EST.

Rob Fuller Motorsports Ready to Rebound at New Hampshire Motor Speedway

Rob Fuller Motorsports Ready to Rebound at New Hampshire Motor Speedway

Ron Silk Aiming to Pilot the 15-40 Connection Modified to Victory Lane

NgXW8VHIEKhq7-DwAaNBTyZdtHMflZpuioV2Wu9aqGI,b6Xz4bmun6OHZRi7Fc9VA1HvNf3BrkVVFni00EUFn5oSHREWSBURY, Mass. (Sept. 24, 2015) – 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.

Race fans can take advantage of their next doctor’s visit and check for the early warning signs of cancer in three simple steps (www.newcancerconversation.org).

15-40 Connection also shares some tips when visiting your doctor, including making a list of questions beforehand, being open and honest with your doctor, and asking questions and taking notes during your appointment. After a doctor’s visit, if you are expecting a second appointment or a prescription, but don’t hear back, remember to follow up. Also, if you went to the doctor not feeling well, follow up again with if you don’t improve after two weeks. Your doctor is there to help, but you are the expert on you. 15-40 Connection encourages race fans to work with their doctor as part of a healthcare team.

Rob Fuller Motorsports Prepared for Battle at Bristol Motor Speedway

Rob Fuller Motorsports Prepared for Battle at Bristol Motor Speedway

Ron Silk to Pilot the 15-40 Connection Modified in Combined NWMT-NWSMT Bush’s Beans 150

SHREWSBURY, Mass. (August 17, 2015) – Rob Fuller Motorsports is ready to race against some fresh faces this week, as driver Ron Silk and the team gets ready to compete in the combined NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour (NWMT) and NASCAR Whelen Southern Modified Tour (NWSMT) race at Bristol Motor Speedway on August 19.

“I’m looking forward to getting back to the track with the 15-40 team after the break I took last week,” said Rob Fuller, team owner. “This is probably one of my favorite races and tracks. When the Northern and Southern teams meet the competition is super tight and the racing is better than ever. It’s a win-win for the series and the drivers so I’m looking forward to it.”

Silk is no stranger to success at Bristol Motor Speedway. In just six starts at the track he’s secured one win, two Top-5s and four Top-10s.

“It’s really incredible how fast you go at Bristol given that it’s only half a mile long. It’s also fun to get the opportunity to race on a track that you watched the Sprint Cup guys race on while growing up,” said Silk. “We really struggled last week at Thompson Speedway, so I expect to rebound and have a great shot at the win at Bristol.”

With the fresh competition comes a sense of excitement for Silk. The NWMT does not get to race against the NWSMT often, so the opportunity to do so is significant. The last time Silk saw some of these competitors was during the All-Star Shootout at New Hampshire Motor Speedway in July.

“It’s a lot of fun racing the NWSMT guys because we end up having a field of 45 cars,” Silk explained. “The southern series guys have really stepped up their game over the last few years, and I’m sure they’ll be right in the thick of things this time around.”

Partnering with 15-40 Connection for the third year in a row, the two organizations are working to change the way people think about their health, especially among the younger generation. More than 75,000 teens and young adults (ages 15-40) are diagnosed with cancer each year in the United States. Despite the frequency, improvements in cancer survival rates for 15 to 40-year-olds have barely improved since 1975. 15-40 Connection is working to change that by urging young people to use three simple steps to tell if they would recognize a cancer symptom.

Step one is knowing your normal energy level, sleep patterns, weight, bathroom habits, motor control, and skin complexion. Step two is realizing if there is a subtle change in your normal health that lasts two or more weeks and notifying your doctor. After all, your best chance at survival is you! Step three asks you to share what you know with your doctor. This leads to earlier diagnoses and more effective treatments.

Rob Fuller Motorsports Ready to Keep Momentum Going at Thompson Speedway

Posted on 10 August 2015 by Rob Fuller

Rob Fuller Motorsports Ready to Keep Momentum Going
at Thompson Speedway

Ron Silk to Drive the 15-40 Connection Modified in Pursuit of Third Consecutive Top-10

SHREWSBURY, Mass. (August 10, 2015) – Coming off of two Top-10 finishes from the NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour’s (NWMT) recent stop at New Hampshire Motor Speedway, Rob Fuller Motorsports is looking to keep the success going with another solid finish in the Thompson 150. Ron Silk will pilot the 15-40 Connection Modified for the team at Thompson Speedway Motorsports Park.

“We had another strong run at Loudon, led a lot of laps and grew as a team,” said Rob Fuller, team owner. “Momentum in this sport goes a long way, and I finally feel like we are at a turning point. Loudon was Ron’s first race in a LFR Chassis with a Spec engine, and I feel we are starting to understand what the other needs to succeed. Putting all our effort into one car was a plus as well. With everything going on at LFR, it is difficult to put the required time and focus into running one car, let alone two. Ryan and the guys have been working hard at the shop preparing for this week where we run two races in seven days despite the tracks being 800 miles apart.”

Silk’s efforts in the two NWMT races at New Hampshire Motor Speedway resulted in eighth and fifth place finishes for the 15-40 Connection team. He looks to build on what the team accomplished in New Hampshire at the upcoming race at Thompson Speedway.

“It was great to race up front and lead laps at New Hampshire,” said Silk. “We definitely had a car capable of winning, circumstances just didn’t go our way there in the end.”

The previous two trips to Thompson Speedway this season have been full of ups and downs for Silk. He opened the season with a ninth place finish but a mechanical failure resulted in a 27th place finish during his second race there. Despite the second finish, he feels optimistic about his chances this time around.

“I’m really excited to get back to Thompson. It’s one of my favorite tracks that I’ve had a good amount of success at over the years,” he said. “Last time there we had a good car but got a flat tire after our pit stop which ruined our day. This time though is my first race there with the Spec engine, so I’m pretty excited about that!”

Rob Fuller Motorsports is proud to be partnering with 15-40 Connection (http://www.15-40.org) to raise race fans’ awareness of the importance of early cancer detection. Together they are working to change the way people think about cancer, their health and the way they share information with their doctor.

15-40 Connection shares young adult cancer survivor stories to show how the early warning signs of cancer can creep into your life. One young adult cancer survivor credits the lessons she learned from 15-40 Connection with helping to save her life, as she was able to detect her aggressive breast cancer early on. Had it not been for her early detection, doctors have told her that the cancer would have spread significantly and greatly decreased her chance of survival. You can read more about her story on the 15-40 Connection website (http://www.15-40.org/2015-ungerer-gala-golf-tournament-guests-receive-thanks-for-saving-a-cancer-survivors-life/).

15-40 Connection encourages cancer survivors to step forward and share their story about the health changes they experienced, what they thought of them at the time, and the lessons they learned. These stories help more people recognize what a cancer symptom can look or feel like and can potentially save lives. If you’d like to share your story, please contact 15-40 Connection at info@15-40.org.
