Fuller Excited To Head Into Off Season

With only 2 more races on the RFM schedule, Rob decided to wrap up the year early and focus on the relocation process. “This year has been crazy to say the least”, explains Fuller. “Between NASCAR deeming my Whelen Modified illegal for the second half of the season, to breaking ground on a new shop and home 1,000 miles away, to the booming Draco business my head is spinning.”

Fuller will wrap up 2010 with 11 starts in his NASCAR Whelen Modified. With 5 top five starting positions, including 1 pole and 6 top 10 finishes, Rob still finds himself striving to be better. “We definitely were fast every time we ran, but I really believe my lack of experience is hurting us. That’s why I believe I’m making the right decision until I can put more focus on this part of my career.”

Throughout the 2010 season, not only was Rob running his modified but also designed two completely new product lines for Draco Springs. The Legend car spring was successful right off the bat. “That line was actually pretty simple”, explained Fuller. “The competition in that spring line is little, if any, so we really had rave reviews with the product in our first attempt.” Draco and Fuller also headed down the infamous valve spring road. For those unfamiliar with this line it is a very particular and time consuming venture to say the least. “On the other hand, those springs were almost the death of me. My hats off to all the people at Draco that worked so hard for so long with me on this, but after 14 months, our first samples are being completed as we speak. This was the main reason for my decision to cut back on races this year,” explains Rob. “The market for this product is absolutely huge. We have a bunch of interest already and I really think the sky is the limit with this deal!”

Fuller is extremely proud of what this year has delivered for RFM, and is already working on a newly engineered design modified with the folks at Troyer Inc. The company is also building a new Featherlite trailer that Rob himself will bring to select few tracks when he himself is not racing. The trailer is equipped with a conversion kit from Nitro Manufacturing which will contain state of the art engineering equipment that he will use to display the forces that springs and shocks control. “I really enjoy helping the racer”, explains Fuller. “With this equipment in a trailer at any track I will offer services such as shock dyno testing and rate displacement spring testing to help educate the racer as to what is available to them. I really think when they see what is I have developed and compare it to what they currently run they will have enough data to make a decision on which is better for their application.”

With all the different directions RFM is headed you can bet that the success that was reached in 2010 will only increase in 2011. Look for a release next month on the new products being offered by Draco Spring and information on the upcoming PRI show in Orlando, FL where the Draco Spring booth will yet again have a winning car present for viewing pleasure. “I have had each of my cars there for the past 3 years. This year we are offering any team that has won with our support to display their car.”

RFM and Draco have already decided who will participate this year. Stop by the Draco Spring booth to see or simply wait for the pictures to post on www.purplespring.com.
