On a special day for our military like today, we wanted to share a video we made of the Afghanistan Memory Wall this past July during our NASCAR weekend. Thank you to all those who have served and their families!
MOORESVILLE, N.C. (November 10, 2014) – The first year for LFR Chassis has been more than expected for owner Rob Fuller and the Mooresville-based team. The company, which manufactures modified and super late model chassis, earned five wins in 2014 and multiple podium finishes in both divisions.
“This has really been a great year for this organization,” said Rob Fuller, owner of LFR Chassis. “I’m very pleased that these cars are winning right out of the gate. Burt Myers won in only his third start with his new LFR Chassis. We strive to offer our customers the best craftsmanship and performance in the industry.”
Three past champions have driven the new LFR modified chassis this year and all were very pleased with the experience.
Burt Myers, 2010 NASCAR Whelen Southern Modified Tour champion, was the first to secure a win for LFR Chassis.
“The performance speaks for itself,” said Myers. “This car has so much adjustability in it and the craftsmanship is there; it’s built really well. This car comes race ready. You basically bolt it together and its ready to go. You don’t have to make a lot of updates like you do with other chassis.”
Todd Szegedy, the 2003 NWMT champion, drove the No. 15 LFR Chassis in multiple NASCAR Whelen Modifed Tour races this season and secured a season-best second place finish at New Hampshire Motor Speedway.
“The chassis feels well-balanced and it responds very well to adjustments,” said Szegedy. “The biggest difference I noticed is how well it responds to adjustments. Also, the car drives well on the throttle. When you pick up on the throttle it rotates without being free and turns very well off the corners. That’s important because you want a car to be able to cut and driver underneath guys without being free.”
“Every time we raced that car we were a contender to win,” continued Szegedy. “Unfortunately, we had some part failures in some races. But every time I drove that car I felt I could win in it.”
The most recent champion to pilot a LFR Chassis was Ron Silk, 2011 NWMT champion, who finished third in the North-South Shootout at Caraway Speedway last month.
“I thought the car really performed great,” said Silk. “We would have had a better run in the North-South Shootout but I got into someone early and kind of messed up the nose. But as far as the way it drove and in testing I was impressed with the way it drove and I feel the LFR team will keep making them better. This car seems to have more forward drive than other cars I’ve raced in the past and that’s certainly something you’re looking for.”
Following the solid performance on the track, the shop has been expanded to add 5,000 square feet to the facility in order to increase production. LFR Chassis is expected to complete over 40 modified and super late model cars by the end of the year, marking a solid first year for the company.
Plans for the LFR Chassis North building in Massachusetts are still moving forward. In the interim, the company has partnered with a few shops to hold inventory. In addition, a trailer has been traveling from North Carolina up to the northeast every two weeks on average to deliver cars and parts directly to LFR customers.
In 2015, Fuller plans to have four Super Late Model house cars and a few house modifieds to continue to test and improve the design and performance of the chassis.
The three-time postponed Fall Brawl at Riverside Speedway in Groveton, N.H. finally took the green flag on a 25 degree day with Eddie Mac dominating most of the way to secure the win in Team Peterson’s final race of the season. The scheduled event for the $5,000 win was 200 laps but was shortened to 150 laps for a $3,000 win.

The south entrance New Hampshire Motor Speedway will begin to take on a new look once the snow melts. Speedway officials announced plans to break ground there for the future home of the 20,000 square foot state-of-the-art North East Motor Sports Museum. The museum will be built in two phases. The first 10,000 square feet will begin in the spring of 2015, while an additional 10,000 square feet will be added at a later date. New Hampshire Motor Speedway will be celebrating a quarter century of racing in 2015. Tracing its roots back to the original 1/5-mile dirt oval at Bryar Motorsports Park, the more modernized 1.058-mile oval and 1.6-mile road course of today gives the affectionately known Magic Mile its own rich history of racing that makes it the perfect locale for such a project.
