MOORESVILLE, N.C. – LFR Chassis Inc., a manufacturer of modified, late model and super late model race cars, will now have daily management and oversight from one of the top racing crew chiefs and mechanics in the business as Tony Eury Jr. joins the company effective this week.
“To have someone with his experience and knowledge come on board and help us develop and manufacture top-level chassis and components is huge,” said Rob Fuller, owner. “No other manufacturer can offer someone with those credentials.”
Tony Eury Jr. has over 20 years of experience working at the top levels of NASCAR as a crew chief, car chief, mechanic and tire changer. He has led the top teams in motorsports – including Dale Earnhardt Inc. (DEI), Hendrick Motorsports and JR Motorsports – to numerous wins and championships.
“I’m excited to reunite with Rob and work together on this new venture,” Eury said. “We’re both racers at heart and take pride in running well and creating quality products.”
Fuller and Eury first met in 1997 at DEI where the duo was part of Dale Earnhardt Jr.’s NASCAR Busch Series team. The two reunited in 2005 at DEI to give Michael Waltrip his most competitive year to date.
“Tony is one of my closest friends and to have someone I have that relationship with looking over the business daily is priceless,” said Fuller. “We have won a lot of races and championships together and I believe the best is yet to come. We are both rooted in short track racing and it’s great to be able to offer quality products from LFR Chassis to short track racers across the country.”
Bob Yost, a chassis builder with over 10 years experience, is another new hire for LFR Chassis this week. Yost has spent the bulk of his career building chassis for top-level NASCAR teams and recently worked closely with Eury in building Gen 6 Cup chassis.
“We are assembling a team here that will be second to none in manufacturing and track support in the industry,” said Fuller. “In business everyone knows it’s all about the people and we will have a group that is head and shoulders above the rest.”
