TONY EURY JR.
TO MAKE MODIFIED CREW CHIEF DEBUT
Todd Szegedy Will Pilot No. 15 15-40 Connection Modified At
“The Last Great Colosseum”
Chassis will be back in action in the NASCAR Whelen
Modified Tour (NWMT) at Bristol Motor Speedway, as
Todd Szegedy and Rob Fuller Motorsports team up for
the Bush’s Beans 150. The team is thrilled to
announce that veteran NASCAR crew chief, Tony Eury
Jr., will make his NWMT crew chief debut this week.
Although this will mark Tony Eury Jr.’s first race
as a NWMT crew chief, Eury has an impressive resume
as a NASCAR crew chief and looks forward to
broadening his list of accomplishments with Rob
Fuller Motorsports in Bristol.
“After getting to know Todd, I am excited to be his
crew chief in Bristol,” said Eury. “I think we have
a legitimate shot to win, and we’re going to have
some fun with it as well. I’ve paid attention to how
the track is from past modified races, and I think
working on super late models every week can be
applied to working on the modified car as well. We
are going in with a game plan, but I might bring a
few ideas to the table that we can try and see what
Todd Szegedy, who is running a limited schedule in
the NWMT with Rob Fuller Motorsports, will be back
in the No. 15 15-40 Connection car. Although the
Bush’s Beans 150 will be Szegedy’s only third race
of the season with LFR Chassis, he is no stranger to
competing in the modifieds at Bristol.
Out of seven starts at Bristol, Szegedy has recorded
three second place finishes, along with a Top-5
finish in the series. Szegedy looks to record
another solid finish at “The World’s Fastest Short
Track,” a place he knows he can win at.
“Bristol is my favorite track,” said Szegedy. “It’s
got sheer speed, yet it’s fast enough where you need
to respect the track. It’s got multiple racing
grooves, which is what I really love about the
track. I want to go there, get the pole and then win
the race – it’s that simple. I think we are capable
of doing just that with the equipment Rob provides.”
Ryan Newman will also return to the NWMT with LFR
Chassis in the No. 7ny Aggressive Hydraulics car.
Newman has had success in his six NWMT starts at
Bristol, recording two wins and three Top-5’s at the
infamous short track. Rob Fuller will crew chief for
Newman, as Newman looks to add on to his exceptional
list of finishes at Bristol.
“I'm looking forward to working with Ryan,” said
Fuller. “I know we have a good baseline with the LFR
car, so it's just a matter of getting him where he's
comfortable. With those guys not running very often
it's tough to keep up, and the teams and drivers in
this division are tough for sure. Hopefully I can
help these guys and we can have fun at the same
