VP and TUDOR UNITED SPORTSCAR CHAMPIONSHIPThe first three rounds of the TUDOR United Sportscar Championship have proven that VP and IMSA have a winning partnership. Rolex 24 Hours of Daytona marked the first time VP trucks rolled into the legendary Daytona International Speedway and we kept the fuel flowing for the grueling test of man and machine. The action was intense on the track and after twice around the clock the Action Express Corvette Daytona Prototype driven by Joao Barbosa, Christian Fittipaldi, Sebastien Bourdais, and Burt Frisselle took the VP checkered flag.
Not ones to rest on historic laurels, TUSC’s second race was the fabled 12 Hours of Sebring. The bumpy former airport runways have beaten a who’s who of race drivers for over sixty years. VP kept the 63 entries ready to take on the endurance challenge. At the end Scott Pruett, Memo Rojas, and Marino Franchitti were Makin’ Power to the finish in the Chip Ganassi Telcel Ford EcoBoost Riley Daytona Prototype.
Exotic cars, high tech fuel, and southern California are a perfect mix. TUSC took on the streets of Long Beach, where the concrete canyons, famous hairpin, and street circuit nuances are always a challenge. The first sprint race on the schedule saw the “ringers” back in their respective series, so the sportscar specialists did what they do. VP’s fuel is an integral part of these races, where fuel mileage and pit strategy, along with driver skill, win races. The Chip Ganassi Racing Telcel Ford EcoBoost Riley driven by Scott Pruett and Memo Rojas bested the field again, but by a scant margin.
The TUDOR United Sportscar Championship heads to many more exciting road and street courses and all fueled by VP Racing Fuels. For more information visit imsa.com
