VP’s COMMITMENT TO DRAG RACING CONTINUES IN 2015
VP Racing Fuels will continue programs to support NHRA Sportsman racers in 2015. “VP Racing Fuels remains committed to actively supporting NHRA Sportsman racers and the wider drag racing market as we have for 40 years,” said Steve Burns, VP’s Founder and Director-R&D. “While VP will longer bears the title of Official Racing Fuel of NHRA, we’ll never abandon the Sportsman racers or forget our friends in the Pro ranks whose longstanding support formed the foundation of VP’s success as a company.”
“Going forward, we’ll continue to post awards for NHRA divisional and national events through the NHRA contingency program as we always have,” Burns said. “We’ll also continue our ‘Top 10’ program including some enhancements, wherein racers who finished in the top 10 in each class in 2014 will be entitled to free or half price fuel at each national event they attend in 2015. This program will be repeated for racers who finish in the Top 10 in 2015, after which they can redeem their fuel awards in 2016.”
VP fuel trucks will be at a great number of NHRA divisional events to provide fuel service in 2015 and for those events where VP can’t be on site, its extensive dealer network throughout the U.S. and Canada makes VP fuels easy to find.
VP also renewed as Official Fuel of the NMRA, NMCA, NMCA West, and PDRA. All four series feature fierce competition between high horsepower door-slammers that rely on VP Racing Fuels. VP covers the series from the pre-order process to contingency at the race.
X16 caps off VP’s drag racing focus for 2015. The fuel is becoming the fuel choice for Sportsman drag racers.
Designed for naturally aspirated engines, X16 is an economically priced option for two and four-stroke engines with compression ratios of up to 16:1 and for engines using nitrous up to 300 HP. “X16 offers the power and protection of leading 116 octane racing fuels for a lower price and is an ideal fuel for a variety of motorsports applications,” said Jason Rueckert, VP’s Regional Manager-Midwest and member of VP’s Tech Support staff. X16 is available in pails and drums through VP’s extensive dealer and distributor network.
