Ron Silk to drive for Rob Fuller Motorsports in North-South Shootout

Silk will pilot LFR Chassis House Car featuring 15-40 Connection

SHREWSBURY, Mass. (October 23, 2014) – Ron Silk will get behind the wheel of the No. 15 LFR Chassis as he joins Rob Fuller Motorsports as driver of the 15-40 Connection modified for the North-South Shootout at Caraway Speedway (N.C.).Ron Silk (Getty Images)
“This really happened overnight,” said team owner Rob Fuller. “With the driver swaps going on and the rain delay at Thompson it was the perfect storm situation going into silly season if you will. My goal is to get as many drivers as I can in the LFR chassis so they can have a good idea of what they will be racing if they don’t have one. Ronnie is the perfect pick for this race because he is being mentioned as a possible driver for a few teams and this is a good way to show him what these cars can do.”
The partnership is for this race only. Todd Szegedy is slated to continue to drive the No. 15 RFM entry in the NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour next season.
Silk recently finished fourth overall in the NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour standings with five Top-5 and 11 Top-10 finishes during the 2014 race season.
“I’m really excited to try out the LFR Chassis,” Silk said. “I’ve been interested in it ever since Rob started the company. I raced against it at New Hampshire and it seeing how well it does and how Burt Myers has been running well with it down south, I’m really interested in giving it a try.”
Silk will test at Caraway Speedway today with RFM and other LFR Chassis teams to prepare for the Nov. 1 race. “Today we’re going to get used the car and acclimated,” Silk said. “I think it will be fast. We’re going out there to win and I think we have a real chance.”
