Max, who won his first super late model
feature event this past summer at Marion Center (PA) Speedway,
has become a household name in the crate late model ranks while
winning championship after championship since 2008.
During the 2013 season, Max
competed in 56 total events while capturing an astounding 51
top-five finishes and an even more impressive 26 wins.
‘This is a
childhood dream come true for me,’ Blair quipped, ‘It’s amazing
for a team owner like John Kennedy to think this highly of
myself and our team to bring us on board like this. And for him
to let everything come out of our shop just like (Tim) Fuller
and (Shane) Clanton do is really exciting for me. To have my dad
(Rob) by my side as we take on this new adventure is just plain
awesome. I couldn’t imagine doing this without my dad. He’s made
me the racer I am today and if it wasn’t for him, I wouldn’t
have this opportunity. I’m usually ready to start the next
season as soon as one finishes but now there’s even more
excitement to get started. I’m really looking forward to working
with Mr. Kennedy, Tim Fuller, Shane Clanton and the rest of the
Kennedy Motorsports team.'

Tim Fuller Completes First Full Year with Kennedy Motorsports
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.’

under way at Screven Motor Speedway in Sylvania, GA. Shane
blasted his way to his first World of Outlaws win of the season
in the $8,000 to-win opener and finished second the following
night giving him a share of the championship points lead heading
into the Florida portion of speedweeks.

top ten finishes during that stretch and left the Sunshine State
