Weedsport, N.Y. – Nov. 16, 2016 – Super DIRTcar Series Big Block Modified standout Tim Fuller is coming off one of his strongest seasons to date with a solid third-place finish in the championship point standings for car owner Dave Rauscher.

With two series wins and eleven top-five finishes for Rauscher, Fuller won’t be behind the wheel of the familiar No. 19 Monadnock Disposal Service in 2017. The two have mutually agreed to part ways, leaving Fuller up for grabs in 2017. The unlikely source is Supermodified powerhouse Ray Graham, who will be fielding a new two-car team for the upcoming season.

CONCORD, N.C. – October 29, 2016 – Matt Sheppard, the driver of the FX Caprara No. 9s Big Block Modified, made a mark in history this weekend as he broke a record and won his fifth Super DIRTcar Series Championship. Sheppard proved once again that he was the man to beat Saturday night during the Bad Boy Off Road World Finals at The Dirt Track at Charlotte.

“This place was so racy tonight,” said Sheppard in victory lane. “These big blocks put on a heck of a show tonight. We were racing two, three, four wide there. Last time we started on the pole and led the whole race. I was happy to get that win and tonight was even more satisfying. Starting in the back a little bit further and driving through the field. I just can’t say enough about this racecar. It was just fantastic.”
