As the 2014 race season begins, Rob Fuller and Steve Leavitt have announced a partnership to create LFR Chassis, Inc. (Leavitt Fuller Racecars). The company will provide a cutting edge chassis that will be user friendly and provide high-end components and customer service to the top-tier modified and late model race teams.
The Leavitt name is synonymous with high quality fabrication and Fuller has competed at every level of racing at an equally high level so the product and customer service will be second to none in the industry. Fuller, the primary owner of LFR Chassis, will be responsible for running the day-to-day operations, including customer relations and overseeing chassis construction.
“I really want to design and build a chassis that is on the cutting edge of technology and I think the timing is right and the racers are ready for it,” said Fuller. “My focus will be the racers who want something different and a more custom part. I want a smaller clientele with higher customer service.”
With four Super Late Models and three NASCAR Modifieds already on order, LFR plans to focus on the R&D side of production in 2014 and offer full services in 2015. A complete inventory of clips, chassis components and body panels will be accumulated throughout 2014 in preparation of the 2015 release.
“I’ve been in this industry for 50 years and I’ve never been more excited to start a new venture,” said Leavitt. “This is the first time in the history of NASCAR Modified racing that an experienced Cup chassis manufacturer is putting the same quality and technology in a modified chassis. We’re expecting to turn heads once we get these chassis out to the track.”
A 24-hour turnaround for clip repair is the goal. A complete spindle and frame jig will also allow each racer to get a more customized part for their individual racecars.
LFR Chassis will be based out of Mooresville, N.C. in 2014 while a 25,000 square foot facility will be constructed in West Boylston, Mass. and planned for opening in 2015.
