Fuller, Flemke and Ruggiero Take Modifieds to The Next Level
MOORESVILLE, N.C. (January 22, 2015) – LFR Chassis has announced a partnership with Race Works Chassis, owned by Ed Flemke Jr. and Reggie Ruggiero, to distribute and service modified chassis in the Northeast.
Flemke and Ruggiero are legendary drivers in the modified series, combining to race for over 50 years and winning 61 tour races and countless other track championships and wins between the two of them. They partnered and opened Race Works, Inc. in 1989 to build modified chassis for top-level racers.
“I hope this move shows the current LFR customers our commitment to customer service,” said Rob Fuller. “When I started this company I really held my cards close to my chest. After really looking into what Eddie and Reggie have done in the past, their quality of work is at the level that we expect for our customers and their reputation in this industry is impeccable. When I placed my cards out on the table to show them to Eddie he was immediately interested and that meant a lot to me and really shed a light on what we have accomplished in such a short period of time as a company.”
Flemke, a modified racing legend, has been impressed with LFR Chassis and is excited to join the team.
“I’ve kept an eye on Rob starting LFR Chassis and its progression and I think they’ve made all the right moves and are in a great position,” said Flemke. “We’ve been in business a long time and this is a great opportunity for us to take this more technologically advanced chassis and still bring our expertise, quality, energy and enthusiasm to it.”
LFR Chassis will be available at Race Works starting in March. Customers will have access to the LFR team data and open test dates.
“We will begin to get Reggie and Eddie a streamline of parts, chassis and clips for their inventory,” said Fuller. “My biggest fear as of late is the inability to service the customer. I know that I will need some assistance in handling the maintenance of over 30 modifieds this year and I believe this is a step in the right direction to solve this issue before it arises.”
“Combining the Fuller, Flemke and Ruggiero families there has to be over 100 years of modified history there!” said Fuller.
LFR Chassis was formed in early 2014 by Rob Fuller to take late model and modified chassis to the next level. The initial year of the company has been a banner year with five wins and multiple podium finishes across modified and late model divisions.
Race Works, Inc. is located at 55 Willow Brook Drive in Berlin, Connecticut and can be reached at (860) 829-1312.
