VP RACING FUELS TEAMS WITH ANTRON BROWN TO SUPPORT GRASS ROOTS DRAG RACING

VP Rolls Out New Video, Autographed Hat Giveaway, Contingency Awards

SAN ANTONIO, TX (February 18, 2017) Despite winning multiple NHRA Championships, Antron Brown has not forgotten his roots and remains committed to give something back to his sport. In a new video released today, the reigning NHRA Top Fuel Champion and founder of the Midwest Junior Super Series explains how his philosophy meshes perfectly with VP Racing Fuels, a championship-winning company that is likewise committed to supporting the sport of drag racing.

“What sets VP apart from all the other fuel vendors is they start off with the grass roots. That was true in my case as a young motocross rider, where I learned from my dad to do things right the first time and only buy the best, and he always bought VP,” said Brown. “VP has become a part of our Midwest Junior Super Series, getting involved in the early stages because they care about the youth and teaching them how to win by being consistent and always choosing the right ingredients to put in the race car to make it happen.”

“We couldn’t be more pleased to support Antron and his Junior Dragsters. He is a true champion who shares our passion for performance and giving back to the sport,” said Chris Wall, VP’s Chief Marketing Officer.

In connection with its new video, VP will be giving away 50 hats signed by Antron for VP fans that submit short videos saying how VP is a part of their life.

Fan videos can be submitted online at www.vpracingfuels.com/racer-spotlight and the best 50 will be selected to receive an autographed VP hat.


In addition to supporting Junior Dragsters, VP will again be an NHRA Major Contingency Sponsor, continuing its 41-year practice of posting substantial contingency awards for all NHRA Sportsman classes. The company also will continue its “Top 10” program which awards free or half price fuel to racers ranked in the Top 10 of each Sportsman class the previous year.

The new video is one of several viewable on VP’s new website which will be constantly updated with new videos and other content to keep visitors abreast of everything that’s happening at VP.
