The Fuller Heritage

Where it all Began
The Fuller heritage is unparalleled in racing.  It all started when Rob’s father, Bobby Fuller, began racing his younger brother Jeff’s car in 1973 at the age of 17. One year later, after destroying Jeff’s car, Bobby made a name for himself when he started on a tear in the Late Model Division. In 1979 Bobby won 38 of the 40 races run in that division.  Bobby’s younger brother Jeff wasn’t far behind in the Late Models and progressed to the mighty modifieds in 1982. While these two Fullers were shattering racing records in New England, another Fuller was bit by the racing bug. Rick Fuller started his own racing career in Street Stocks and eventually found his way to the Modified Series to compete with his two older brothers.

Bobby retired from driving in 1994, but went on to own one of the most feared modifieds to hit the track with driver s such as Rick Fuller, Tony Stewart and even his son Rob Fuller behind the wheel.  Jeff won the 1992 Modified Championship, which propelled him to North Carolina with a NASCAR Nationwide Series ride that eventually turned into a journey in the Cup Series in the years to come.  Ricky went on to win the Modified Series Championship in 1993 before retiring from driving in 2008.

Rob Fuller Motorsports is Born
While Rob could usually be found helping out any one of his family members, he was beginning to have a vision of his own.  While working at his stepdad’s company, Tony’s Competition Engines, Rob put some pieces together, pulled an old chassis out of the woods and started building a dream.  Six months later a NASCAR Modified was born.  Rob made his debut in the car at Riverside Park Speedway in 1994. After accumulating the inevitable race’s debt, Rob sold the car, paid off his debt and headed south to North Carolina with only $80 in hand.  Living on the dining room floor of a friend’s house (Steve Park) while working for various NASCAR teams allowed Rob to put aside some funds to again build a car of his own.

Rob Fuller Motorsports (RFM) hit the track in 1999 in the NASCAR Late Model Division.  After countless poles and a win collection of his own in the Late Model Division, Rob couldn’t refuse the urge to go modified racing again. Now RFM has grown to a team that runs Late Models, Modifieds and in 2009 Rob made his debut in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series. With over 100 races run under the RFM banner, the team keeps getting stronger.

When asked about the remarkable success of his company Rob said, “I feel very fortunate to have accomplished what I have in the sport.  Some people buy their way into the sport, others earn it, I feel I’ve earned it.”
