|Tim Fuller Capitalizes
and Delivers a Win in the Desert
Tucson, Arizona (January 17, 2014) After
missing the Wednesday night show at Tucson International
Raceway’s Winter Extreme, New York’s Tim Fuller knew he had to
make some changes to get his Capital Race Car back up front.
Fuller took advantage of the day off from racing on Thursday to
do just that. And that work paid dividends on Friday night.
Fuller moved to second from his third starting spot and then
took over the lead on lap 22 when race leader R.C. Whitwell
suffered mechanical issues. Full had to fend off a late-race
highside charge by Ryan Gustin to claim the $3,000 winner’s
purse and his second career win in Tucson International Raceway.

flag in the A-main Whitwell and Moyer battled it out for the
lead over the opening laps with Whitwell taking the advantage by
lap two. Fuller moved up to immediately begin challenging for
the runner-up spot. Fuller rolled by Moyer down the back
straightaway and set after Whitwell. By the next set of corners
Fuller had pulled to Whitwell’s rear deck and was looking for
the lead. Over the next few laps Fuller would mount a charge on
the bottom of turns one and two only to have Whitwell slam the
lap five yellow flag for Donny Schatz bunched the field for a
restart. Whitwell squirted away at the green and Moyer retook
the second spot. Fuller stayed the course and rode the bottom
line back around Moyer one lap later. Fuller again stalked
Whitwell down and began looking underneath for the lead. The
yellow slowed the action again on lap 13 when Rob Sanders ended
up stopped sideways on the back straight. Whitwell again moved
away when the green reappeared and yet again Moyer went to
second. But just as before Fuller rolled back by Wednesday
night’s winner for second.

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.'
