GRAND BEND, ONTARIO (June 11, 2010) VP Racing Fuels has officially thrown its hat in as title sponsor of the Ultimate Pro Mod Showdown at the RPM Magazine Family PowerFest & Media Weekend.    The weekend event will be contested June 25-27 at the world class Grand Bend Motorplex in Grand Bend, Ontario, Canada, with the BIG SHOW—the VP Racing Fuels Ultimate Pro Mod Showdown—taking place Saturday, June 26.

Pro Mod racing starts Saturday at noon so fans are advised to get there early to see all the action in the pits as not only the Pro Mods will be in the house, but also the Quick 32 Sportsman Series and Grand Bend's own Thunder Series competitors will be racing all weekend long! Friday night will be a test & tune madhouse with Sunday hosting the eliminations of Q32, more of Grand Bend's Thunder Series along with Pro Mod testing!

"We really want to thank VP for coming on board with us once again for our event," said RPM Editor Chris Biro. “They understand the philosophy of what we do with both RPM Magazine and our events. We obviously do things differently, for 11 years now RPM has stayed tried and true to the grassroots of Fast Doorslammer and Outlaw Drag Racing while also appealing to the street machine crowd, which is exactly what our goal is with any event we host.”

“Keeping it real for everyone is what RPM does best and that to me is why VP Racing Fuels is such a good fit. VP is continually researching new and innovative ways to improve upon existing or create new products for motorsports, not just the elite of the sport. They have a long term goal—they are not here today and gone tomorrow.   They work for the sport behind the scenes as well. We enjoy working with VP at every opportunity possible, and the Ultimate Showdown can only be a better package for both racers and fans with their presence."

"We're really pleased to be part of the weekend at Grand Bend," stated Jim Kelly, Regional Manager, NE North America and Europe.  "We're there every year as Official Fuel Supplier for the IHRA but any opportunity to return to that area is a good one. The track's great, the racers are a blast and the area itself has a lot to offer. Randy Lungal, who runs VP-Ontario, will be there all weekend to connect with our existing and potential customers. He'll have VP race fuel, jugs, and some of our new design Mad Scientist t-shirts available. If anyone wants to pre-order fuel please call 905.478.3835 or write vpontario@aol.com."

Biro added, "Expect the VP Racing Fuels Ultimate Pro Mod Showdown to attract over 20 of the world's top Pro Modified teams from 2 countries to battle it out in an ultimate high-power entertainment experience at the PowerFest!”
