VP RACING FUEL BECOMES OFFICIAL FUEL OF ACT AND THUNDER ROAD
Brian Hoar wins opener on New C9 Unleaded Spec Fuel
Waterbury, VT – Eight-time American Canadian Tour (ACT) Late Model Champion Brian Hoar of Williston, VT claimed his second straight NH Governor’s Cup 150 season opener Sunday at Lee USA Speedway in Lee, NH. The win marked the beginning of a new era, with the American Canadian Tour (ACT) having announced last week that VP Racing Fuels had been named the “Official Fuel” of ACT for 2012. Hoar’s win came using VP’s “C9” racing fuel, designated a “spec fuel” under the new program, which addresses the fuel needs of the ACT US, ACT Series Castrol Quebec, and Thunder Road Int’l Speedbowl in Barre, VT.
C9, an unleaded racing fuel with no ethanol components, was introduced as a spec fuel option in 2012 not only for the ACT Castrol Series but also the ACT Late Models and all weekly divisions at Thunder Road. While C9 is permitted for use immediately, to allow for consumption of leftover Sunoco 110, that fuel will be allowed only until June 30 th in the ACT Castrol Series.
In addition to C9, VP110 will also become a “spec fuel” option available to U.S. Late Model teams competing in the ACT US and Thunder Road Late Models. These two ACT/VP “spec” fuels and the one remaining approved fuel will be permitted in the U.S. throughout the 2012 season. Racers in both series and at Thunder Road will participate in many programs involving fuel awards, SEF Small Engine Fuel and VP Motorsport Container promotions.
Tom Curley, President of the American Canadian Tour said, “The timing of establishing this relationship with VP is just about perfect. The cost of fuel for everyone, not just racers, is continuing to escalate. VP has helped to design a program for our racers by introducing this spec fuel. We believe this will help address the costs to racers, and at the same time help us become more environmentally friendly. It follows closely our philosophy about cost concerns, just like twelve years ago when we introduced the crate motor,” said Curley.
Testing of C9 has been conducted at the headquarters of the ACT crate motors, Butler & MacMaster in Hallowell, ME. “We were impressed with the comparative results. Our data showed that C9 ran very clean, and actually created additional torque and horsepower from what we have been used to seeing with these motors,” said Dave MacMaster, the innovative veteran motor builder of both the GM and Ford crate motors for ACT since their beginning.
“VP Racing Fuels is very pleased to be involved with ACT and its many affiliate tracks and programs. We look forward to working with the race teams and ACT for many years,” said Kelly. “Our C9 ethanol-free unleaded is one of our newest products. It makes great power at a very good price, and in addition to working great in their ACT engines, racers will find that C9 will perform really well in their off-road competition snowmobiles, quads, and motocross bikes.” C9 is readily available throughout Canada and the United States.
