SAN ANTONIO, TX (June 1, 2010) VP Racing Fuels, the Official Racing Fuel of DIRTcar Racing, once again will be among the major backers of the UMP DIRTcar Summer Nationals which kicks off June 16 at Brownstown Speedway in Brownstown, IN.   And VP has good news for racers concerned with the logistics of keeping their cars fueled during the grueling “Hell Tour” schedule.   At 24 of the tracks hosting Summer Nationals events, VP’s most popular fuels for dirt Late Model racing will be conveniently available for purchase on site.

“These include VP113, Late Model Plus, Q16 and others,” said Tom Spain, Operations Manager at VP’s Midwest Regional Distribution Center in Terre Haute, IN.   “At a number of the tracks, VP is the track fuel available at the pump.   In other cases, VP fuel will be available from a fuel truck on site, serviced by either VP-Midwest or by our distributor, Wick Racing Fuels.”   For the complete Summer Nationals schedule, reflecting tracks at which VP fuels will be available on site, click HERE.

For each race on the Summer Nationals schedule, VP will offer a total of $150 in product certificates to three A-Main starters.  The certificates include $75 for the fifth-place finisher, $50 for the 10th-place finisher and $25 for the 15th-place finisher in each Summer Nationals A-Main. Teams must use VP fuel and display a VP decal to be eligible for the certificates, which can be redeemed at any race serviced by a VP or Wick Racing Fuels truck.   Certificates also can be redeemed at VP Regional Distribution Centers in Terre Haute, Ind.; Newark, Del.; Barnett, Ga.; and San Antonio, TX.

"We look forward to working with Sam Driggers, his UMP DIRTcar team and the racers,” Spain continued.   “The Hell Tour is so competitive and the schedule so grueling, it’s an incredible test for series personnel and all the teams.   We’re proud to be a part of it and happy to support the program the best way we can.”

In addition to the UMP Summer Nationals, VP Racing is the Official Fuel of UMP DIRTcar, World of Outlaws Late Models, World of Outlaws Sprint Cars, MARS DIRTcar Series and DIRTcar West, among more than 50 VP-sponsored series and sanctioning bodies.
