TO DRIVE ROB FULLER MOTORSPORTS MODIFIED
IN NORTH-SOUTH SHOOTOUT
Santos Returning to LFR Chassis Modified For Second Time
Fuller Motorsports will have an experienced racing
veteran behind the wheel of its No. 15 modified
during the upcoming North-South Shootout event at
Concord Speedway on November 6-7, as Bobby Santos is
slated to make his return to an LFR Chassis machine.
Santos, the 2010 NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour
champion, previously competed in an LFR Chassis
modified at Oswego Speedway back in April.
“I’m looking forward to working with Bobby again at
Concord Speedway,” said Rob Fuller, team owner.
“Oswego Speedway was a last minute deal at a track
I’d never been to on a tire we had never run before,
and we still wound up second in practice there, so
to go to a track we are both familiar with should be
fun. It’s a great weekend of modified racing with
both north and south teams competing. We should have
four LFR Chassis cars in the field, which is double
what it normally is, so I’m looking forward to
watching everyone work together and see how we stack
up at the end of the day.”
Santos’ first run in an LFR Chassis at Oswego
Speedway did not go as planned, as he got swept up
in an accident during a heat-race early on in the
racing weekend. The North-South Shootout entry now
provides him with a chance at redemption.
“I’m really excited for the opportunity to race for
Rob again,” explained Santos. “He’s a great guy, and
I want to do well for him and his team. Earlier this
year we worked together but a crash ruined our day,
so I’m looking forward to getting back into one of
his cars and trying again. His program has had a lot
of success this year, so I’m excited to see what I
can learn from it during this race.”
Not only is Santos making his return to LFR Chassis,
but he’s also making his return to the North-South
Shootout, a race he last competed in back in 2008.
He has raced in the event four times, with his best
finish coming in 2007 when he placed third.
“I’m ready to be back racing in the North-South
Shootout,” said Santos. “I haven’t won this event
before, so I’m excited to have another shot at it! I
enjoy Concord Speedway a lot too. I have a USAC
Midget win there, so I know the track really well
and love racing there. It’s a unique track, but lots
Santos is also looking forward to mixing it up with
some fresh faces while competing in his Rob Fuller
Motorsports modified, as racers from across the
country come to compete in this race.
“It’s always tough racing with people you’re not
familiar with, but fun at the same time,” he said.
“Some racers you get to know well and you know their
tendencies, but with new racers it’s different. You
need to be extra cautious at times but also extra
aggressive. It’s definitely a different deal out on
the track with them. You always have to expect the
