DISTRIBUTOR OF THE QUARTER
MARK KLEIN, VP SOUTHEASTSelection as Distributor of the Quarter is fitting for Mark Klein as he’s now been a valued distributor of VP Racing Fuels for more than a quarter century! Mark began his operation in 1981 and continues to serve the state of Florida and grow his business from his base in Ft. Lauderdale. Mark began selling racing fuel after being introduced by a mutual friend to VP’s founder, Steve Burns. Involved in several forms of motorsports at the time, Mark had personally experienced the horsepower gains achieved by VP fuels while drag racing motorcycles and riding motocross. A true believer in the product, it was a natural fit for him to begin distributing VP Racing Fuels to racers in his own motorsport disciplines as well as pioneer VP's pursuit of fueling offshore racing boats in Florida.
Mark tells us that C12 is still his best seller and sees that as a true testament to the quality of VP’s formulas, even from the very first production blend. He also experiences high demand for VP110, C16, MS109, U4.4 and MR12, but keeps every fuel available from VP in stock at his facility. When asked about the changes he has experienced over the years in the racing business, he noted, “the racing market is endlessly changing and evolving, but one thing that holds constant are the personal relationships that truly define this industry.”
When Mark gets some free time from the hustle and bustle of racing season, his first priority is spending time with his wife and two daughters. Mark considers working out as a hobby and is focused on improving his fitness through disciplined training.
VP appreciates Mark’s support and loyalty over these many years and is proud to have him on Team VP!
