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.
