Racing History: Began career in Street Stock division and steadily climbed through ranks to become one of the Northeast's biggest DIRT Modified stars...

Registered the richest victory of his career in 2004, pocketing over $60,000 for winning the prestigious SEF 200 DIRTcar Modified classic at the one-mile New York State Fairgrounds in Syracuse, N.Y... Owns over 100 DIRTcar-sanctioned feature wins in big-block and 358-Modified competition... In 2005, accepted offer from Gypsum Express team owner John Wight to enter selected dirt Late Model events as a teammate to Billy Decker, who was the best man at Fuller's wedding... Won first career dirt Late Model feature on May 4, 2007, at Georgetown (Del.) Speedway... Fuller continued racing his own John Lazore-backed DIRTcar big-block Modified in Super DIRTcar Series action in 2007, winning two series events and finishing second in the Mr. DIRTcar Modified points standings to Brett Hearn (mechanical trouble cost him the points lead in the season finale). Also finished second in 2007 SEF 200 to close Super DIRT Week at the Syracuse Mile... Entered selected Super DIRTcar Series big-block Modified events with his own equipment in 2008 and driving for the J&S Racing No. 74 team in 2009. Scored finishes of fifth (2008) and third (2009) in the SEF 200... Scored a pair of dirt Late Model wins away from the WoO LMS in 2009 – a Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series event at Hagerstown Speedway and a WDRL show at Wisconsin's Cedar Lake Speedway. Also finished second in the '09 USA Nationals 100 at Cedar Lake... Swept an O'Reilly All-Star Late Model Series doubleheader held in Canada in August 2010, winning at Quebec's Autodrome Granby and Brockville Ontario Speedway...

WoO LMS History: Made first start in a tour feature on Aug. 15, 2005, at Lebanon Valley Speedway in West Lebanon, N.Y. Finished 11th in the 50-lap event... His four WoO LMS A-Main runs in '05 also included a 13th-place finish at Rolling Wheels Raceway in Elbridge, N.Y.; a 19th at Golden Isles Speedway in Brunswick, Ga.; and an 18th at Florida's Volusia Speedway Park... Limited dirt Late Model schedule in 2006 included WoO LMS feature qualifications at Golden Isles (11th place), Volusia (22nd) and Cayuga County Fair Speedway in Weedsport, N.Y. (15th). Won a heat race during Cayuga County program... Stepped up dirt Late Model program in 2007 and traveled WoO LMS for first time, entering 37 of the 45 scheduled events while still following the Super DIRTcar Series for big-block Modifieds in the Northeast... Finished eighth in the 2007 points standings and earned the WoO LMS Rookie of the Year Award over Brian Shirley... Won first career WoO LMS A-Main on June 12, 2007, at North Dakota's River Cities Speedway, becoming the third driver to win in their rookie season... Registered back-to-back runner-up finishes in '07 at Knoxville (Iowa) Raceway and Lakeside Speedway in Kansas City, Kans. (June 15-16)... With full focus on WoO LMS in 2008, won twice (back-to-back in July at Williston, N.D., and Gillette, Wyo., during Wild West Tour) and finished ninth in the points standings... Entered all 43 events in 2008 but failed to qualify for two A-Mains... Enjoyed a breakout season in 2009, winning seven A-Mains (second-best on the series) and finishing career-high fourth in the points standings... Scored first win of '09 on July 25 at Ohio's Sharon Speedway, then rolled to successive victories in mid-August at Pennsy's Grandview Speedway, Bedford (Pa.) Speedway and Hagerstown (Md.) Speedway to tie Rick Eckert's 2006 consecutive-win record of four in a row. Streak ended with a third-place finish on Aug. 20 at Ohio's Muskingum County Speedway... Became first driver in WoO LMS history to win races at three different tracks in consecutive days... Also captured '09 A-Mains at Georgia's Screven Motor Speedway, Brewerton (N.Y.) Speedway and Pennsylvania's Tri-City Speedway during an amazing run of seven triumphs in 11 starts... Victory at Brewerton – his old Friday-night DIRTcar big-block Modified home – came in front of his car owner John Wight, who purchased the one-third-mile oval in 2009... Entered 2010 campaign with high hopes but experienced a frustrating season, winning just twice and finishing a disappointing eighth in the points standings. Managed just six top-five finishes after rolling up 17 in 2009... Appeared to be getting back on track with back-to-back June 2010 victories at Can-Am Motorsports Park in Lafargeville, N.Y., and Merrittville Speedway in Thorold, Ont., but recorded only two top-five and seven top-10 finishes over remaining 26 events of season... Triumph at Can-Am was special – his former hometrack for DIRTcar 358-Modified racing is just minutes from his home and a large contingent of his family and friends were on hand... Underwent emergency appendectomy two days after Independence Day weekend 2010 event at Tazewell (Tenn.) Speedway, adding more misery to his summer. He entered the four Wild West Tour events just days later to keep up his points but was far from 100 percent.

 

Interesting Facts: His first race car was a street car that he bought for $60. The rollcage he installed in it came from the rusted pipes of a boat dock, and he towed it to the track using an ambulance and an open trailer made out of planks and an old mobile home frame...

In May 1995, quit his job working 3,100 feet underground in a zinc mine to become a fulltime race car driver... In 2009 purchased a former IGA supermarket in his native hometown of Edwards, N.Y., and is rebuilding it to become the 'Last Lap' Bar & Grill. He opened the establishment in the summer of 2010.
