Rob Fuller Motorsports Takes Momentum To Thompson Speedway

NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour Champion Todd Szegedy will Pilot the 15-40 Connection Chevrolet

SHREWSBURY, Mass. (August 11, 2014) – Following a strong run at New Hampshire Motor Speedway in the new LFR Chassis, Rob Fuller and team are excited to return to Thompson Speedway for the NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour (NWMT) race on August 13.

Todd Szegedy, 2003 NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour Champion, will once again drive for Rob Fuller Motorsports. Szegedy has 18 career wins and 10 pole positions in the NWMT including three career victories at Thompson Speedway.

“I like Thompson because of the higher speeds and it’s usually pretty good racing,” said Szegedy. “There’s a good outside and bottom groove and the groove changes while you’re racing so it adds some thinking and strategy. It’s a challenging track and requires good horsepower and good handling.”

“Track position, staying up front, and qualifying well will be the keys to winning,” continued Szegedy. “Also, having a good pit stop and staying out of trouble are important as well.”

The team will run the same LFR Chassis as the Loudon race in July, where the No. 15 ran in the Top-4 all day until encountering mechanical issues at the end of the race.

“The limited practice time with a new chassis will be a challenge for sure,” said team owner, Rob Fuller. “We will be running a basic set up for the race and will test the following day to finalize our LFR set up to bring back for the October race. After how we ran at Loudon, I honestly believe we will pull off a win the next few races.”

Thyroid cancer survivor and 15-40 Connection spokesperson Stephanie Corliss will join the team as an honorary crewmember. 15-40 Connection is a non-profit organization that has partnered with Rob Fuller Motorsports to raise awareness of cancer symptoms and the obstacles teens and young adults face to diagnose cancer at earlier stages. A photo of Stephanie will be featured on the decklid of the No. 15 during the Thompson Speedway and Bristol Motor Speedway (Aug. 20) events.

15-40 Connection is raising awareness of the fact that cancer survival rates in teens and young adults aged 15 to 40 have barely improved since 1975 in large part because of delays in diagnosis.
