RPW Column By: MIKE TRAVERSE / RPW – MIDDLETOWN, NY – Car owner Anthony Monaco has reached an agreement with Tim Fuller that will see the former Super DIRTcar Series & Mohawk International Raceway champion running select events at the Orange County Fair Speedway in 2020.
“We’ve reached out to Tim and he has agreed to run a limited schedule of races at Orange County this season,” Monaco said. “We haven’t put an exact schedule together yet, but we are looking at 8 to 10 races. Depending on Tim’s schedule, there may be additional races at some other events.”
Anthony has a good feeling about having Fuller race his car at OCFS.
“I think that Tim will do well for us here,” he said. “He is always in the mix wherever he is racing and he’s always a contender for a win. He has won many races on the big stage including Syracuse, Volusia, Charlotte and Eldora. And he’s had good finishes in the Eastern States 200.”
It will be a different look on Monaco’s car with a new number.
“We will be racing our 2019 Bicknell car with an LJL/Kevlar engine and the car number will be M1,” Anthony said. “We are planning on having the car at the OCFS Motorsports show in March.”
Plans are for Tim to be at OCFS for the Shake It Down Weekend practice sessions in late March and to race opening night. Although Monaco has fielded a car in the 358 Modified division in past years, it will be strictly the Modified division for the team this year.
Orange County has a stellar field of racers waiting for the season to begin. The events that will find Tim Fuller racing in Anthony Monaco’s car will further enhance the field. It’s another interesting development to watch for at OCFS in the upcoming season.
