Tim Fuller Completes First Full Year with Kennedy Motorsports Team!
Watertown, NY (November 18, 2013) Kennedy Motorsports driver and World of Outlaws Late Model Series regular Tim Fuller of Watertown, NY finished off his first full year behind the wheel of the Kennedy Motorsports owned, Core Construction sponsored #19 Capital Race Car at the Dirt Track at Charlotte with the World of Outlaws Late Model Series.
Fuller completed his first full season with Kennedy Motorsports with three victories on the season including his first World of Outlaws Late Models Series win since June 17, 2010, a span of 133 races, on August 17, 2013 at Merritt (MI) Speedway. ‘I was beginning to wonder if we were ever going to win again,’ a relieved Fuller said after his win at Merritt. Tim’s first two wins came at the beginning of the 2013 season while in Arizona for the ‘Wild West Shootout’ at Central Arizona Speedway and the ‘Winter Extreme’ at Tucson International Speedway.
‘We came out of the box back in January with two quick wins and some pretty solid finishes out west,’ Fuller said, ‘but when we got to Georgia and Florida in February, we kind of leveled out. But it was still one of the better speedweeks I’ve ever had.’
Fuller hovered around fifth or sixth in the World of Outlaws championship point standings through a majority of the season before eventually finishing seventh in the final standings, two spots better than 2012 and three positions better than 2011. ‘I need to thank John Kennedy first and foremost,’ Fuller said during his time on the stage at the World of Outlaws banquet. ‘It was definitely interesting running up and down the road with (teammate) Shane (Clanton) all year, I learned a lot from him. He helped me a ton this year with these Capital Race Cars and I needed that help. They’re totally different from what I was used to. He knows a lot and the more we get used to it, the better it is.’
Tim went on to thank his sponsors from the 2013 season, ‘I also need to thank Core Construction, Port City and Integra Shocks, they’ve been with me a long time. Bicknell Calipers, Bulldog Rear-Ends, Schaeffer Oil, Bert Transmissions, Hoosier Racing Tires, Capital Race Cars and Marshall Green, VP Race Fuels, Beyea Headers, Slavic Group, FK Rod Ends, and also my wife Lori.’
The end of the 2013 season marks the end of a relationship between a driver and his crew chief. Ross Robinson, Fuller’s crew chief since joining Kennedy Motorsports will leave the team to pursue his own racing career driving the Delaware-based; Charles Jarvis owned #45 car. ‘I’m grateful for everything John Kennedy, Tim Fuller, and Shane Clanton have done for me,’ Robinson said. ‘They gave me a heck of an opportunity and I’m extremely thankful for it.’ Fuller went on to wish his crew chief the best, ‘we’ve been through a lot the 14 months or so, everyone knows I can be a little relentless at times and I’ve rode him hard, but it was for his own good. I think he’s leaving because he met a woman, in fact, I know he met a woman but he says it’s for the racing…whatever,’ Fuller joked. ‘Ross has been a great help, both him and Donny, he’s a great kid and I’d welcome him back anytime.’
Fuller finishes the season with 73 total starts, 40 top-ten finishes, 17 top-five finishes and three total wins. For a full list of Tim’s results please visit www.kennedymotorsports.us.
