|Blair Wins Fritz and
Lynn Seamens Memorial at Stateline
|Busti, NY (July 26, 2014)
The Fritz and Lynn Seamens Memorial started with Max Blair and
Chris Hackett up front for the twenty-five lapper for
twenty-five cars to memorialize the couple who owned the track
from the 1985 season until Fritz passed away in 2010. At the
drop of the green Blair charged to the lead with Dutch Davis
getting by Hackett for second the Bob Dorman coming to third a
lap later. The race went green until lap ten when Jake Finnerty
looped his mount in turn two. For the green flag it was Davies
to Blair's right with Dorman and Bumpy Hedman right behind.
|Dorman immediately got around
Davies and at halfway Mike Knight was fourth with Dave Hess
coming to fifth at lap fifteen. On lap eighteen Knight came by
Davies for third but Davies stayed alongside for a lap before
Knight could solidify the spot. At the end of twenty-two caution
flew when Jordan Eck and Brian Fardink tangled in turn three.
The final three laps were all Blair with Knight coming by Dorman
one lap after green. At the checkers it was Blair for his second
win of the season over Knight, Dorman, Dave Hess, and Dutch
Davies. In Victory Lane Blair praised the track, stating he
could race in every lane of the track.

Fuller Edges McCreadie at River Cities Speedway for First WoO
LMS Victory of the Season
By Joshua Joiner, WoO LMS P.R. Coordinator
GRAND FORKS, S.D. –
July 18, 2014 – A return to the site of his first career series
victory was just what Tim Fuller needed to return to victory
lane on the World of Outlaws Late Model Series.
Competing at the track where he
earned his breakthrough series victory during his rookie WoO LMS
season in 2007, Fuller of Watertown, N.Y., overtook Tim
McCreadie midway through Friday's A-Main at River Cities
Speedway and turned back McCreadie's late challenges to claim
his first WoO LMS victory since Aug. 17, 2013.

The fifth-starting Fuller
made the winning pass as McCreadie, also of Watertown, struggled
to clear traffic on lap 24 of the 50-lap race. McCreadie
recovered to pressure Fuller through the closing stages of the
caution-free event, but Fuller turned back each of McCreadie's
challenges to earn $10,050 for the 14th WoO LMS A-Main victory
of his career.
"To be honest, I really don't even think of this place as one of
my better tracks," said Fuller, who recently returned to
full-time WoO LMS competition after running roughly half of the
national tour's races through the first half of the season.
"It's not really my style of track, but for whatever reason we
run good here. I guess there's something about the track that
clicks with me, but I really can't tell you what it is."
Fuller's Clements-powered Kennedy Motorsports Rocket Chassis
crossed the finish line 0.910 seconds ahead of McCreadie, who
settled for second after leading the race's first 24 laps from
the outside of the front row. Polesitter Brady Smith of Solon
Springs, Wis., finished third with third-starting Shane Clanton
of Zebulon, Ga., placing fourth. WoO LMS points leader Darrell
Lanigan of Union, Ky., improved one position from his sixth
starting spot to round out the race's top five finishers.

|Tim Fuller Wins NDRL
Northeast Event at Port Royal Speedway
Royal, PA (June 22, 2014)
Tim Fuller of Watertown, Ny., scored a rich payday at Port Royal
Speedway on Saturday night, besting a stellar 35-car NDRL Late
Model field with a powerful move by Mason Zeigler for the lead
and victory, worth $3,000. Fuller started fifth in the 30-lap
NDRL Northeast late model field as Mason Zeigler started on the
pole. Zeigler, a 21-year old gasser from Chalk Hill who set a
new one-lap track record for late models earlier in the night,
took control when the race got underway over fourth starter
Jared Miley of South Park. Fuller began
coming to life near the halfway point of the race, using the
high groove to complete his advances, taking over third from
Miley on the 14th tour.
He got by Barbara with 14 laps to go and set
his sights on leader Zeigler who was blasting around the bottom
of the track. Zeigler then moved up to the top groove as Fuller
pulled up on this back bumper but by that time Fuller was into
his rhythm and there was only one more spot for him to conquer.
Fuller pulled the trigger on Zeigler with a
low dive in the third corner before pulling a slide job to
complete the pass after catching the cushion in the fourth turn
with 11 laps left. Once in front Fuller entered the back markers
with seven laps to go and only once did Zeigler get close enough
to think about mounting a challenge but after the lapped traffic
separated Fuller was again able to jet away, taking his first
career Port Royal victory by 1.658 seconds. Zeigler finished
second followed by Miley, Barbara and Dan Stone of Thompson.
