O'Reilly All Stars: Fuller Travels North of the Border For First Series Win

Jason Shank, series p.r.

GRANBY, Quebec  – August 11. Former World of Outlaws Late Model Series Rookie of the Year and Mr. DIRTcar, Tim Fuller of Watertown, N.Y. enjoyed a few days off from the WoOLMS with the O’Reilly All Star Late Model Series (ASLMS) and cashed in with his first ever ASLMS victory at Autodrome Granby.  Fuller held off a late charge from South Park, Pa.’s Jared Miley to capture the $5,000 prize

Defending ASLMS Champion and current point leader Rob Blair took command early on the huge Granby half-mile.  As the field exited turn two, Miley found a fast line around the bottom and slid into the third spot behind Blair and Fuller as second place starter Greg Oakes fell back into the fifth slot.

Fuller began to find his groove in the early stages and by the fifth lap, was on the rear deck-lid of Blair’s Specialty Products Rocket.  Fuller was able to hug the corners slightly better than Blair and as the two came out of turn two, Fuller made his way under Blair for the lead.  Behind the leaders, Thompson, Pa.’s Dan Stone battled Miley for third, with Stone capturing the spot on lap eight.

Max Blair worked his way past Oakes to enter the top five before Charlie Sandercock spun on lap 12 to bring out the event's first caution, and when racing resumed, Max Blair catapulted into the third spot right behind his dad, Rob. Stone got shuffled back to fifth, and in an attempt to find a faster groove, he tried the high side entering turn one and as he set the car in the corner, the rear axle snapped, digging the right side of his car into the track surface and up into the air.  The car tumbled for three very hard rolls before coming to a rest on its wheels.   Stone was a little sore after the accident, but was in good spirits as the team loaded his destroyed #21D into his hauler.

Racing resumed for another six laps with Fuller still command before a lap 23 caution flew for Fred Carleton who spun in turn four.  When racing continued, Fuller still set the pace,and as Blair was gaining ground on Fuller, he hit the inside berm in the middle of turns three and four, breaking something on the left front of the car. That sent him into the inside wall on the front stretch, ending his night on lap 31 and moving Miley into second and Max Blair to third.

The event was slowed one more time on lap 48, but  Fuller wasn’t going to be denied his first career ASLMS victory, holding off Miley to the checkered flag.  Miley second place finish moved him into second place in the 2010 Championship point standings as Max Blair came home third with Gregg Satterlee in fourth and Boom Briggs in fifth from his 17th starting position.
