Mark Klein, Owner of VP-Southeast, Celebrates 30 Years With VP!

VP Racing Fuels enjoys many valued partnerships, but none as enduring as that with Mark Klein, owner of VP Racing Fuels Southeast, Inc., who is celebrating his 30th year as part of the VP family. Mark began his operation in 1986 and continues to serve the state of Florida and grow his business from his base in Ft. Lauderdale.

Mark began selling racing fuel after being introduced by a mutual friend to VP’s founder, Steve Burns.  Involved in several forms of motorsports at the time, Mark had personally experienced the horsepower gains achieved by VP fuels while drag racing motorcycles, riding motocross and racing in the circle track scene.  A true believer in the product, it was a natural fit for him to begin distributing VP Racing Fuels to racers in his own motorsport disciplines as well as to the abundance of offshore racing boats in Florida.

Mark swears that C12 is still his best seller and sees that as a true testament to the quality of VP’s formulas, even from the very first production blend.  He also experiences high demand for VP110, C16, MS109 and MR12 and keeps them readily in stock.  When asked about the changes he has experienced over the years in the racing business, he noted, “we’re all getting older, but one thing that holds constant are the personal relationships that truly define this industry.”

When he gets some free time from the hustle and bustle of racing season, Mark spends time with his family or improving his fitness. His training time is limited though as his 2 young daughters keep him very busy

VP appreciates Mark’s support and loyalty over these many years and is proud to have him on Team VP!


VP RACING FUELS LAUNCHES NEW WEBSITE

Site to Include Easier Navigation, More Product Information

SAN ANTONIO, TX (November 30, 2016) Customers of VP Racing Fuels will enjoy a whole new user experience when they visit its newly redesigned website at http://VPRacingFuels.com, according to Chris Wall, Chief Marketing Officer for VP Racing Fuels.  “Between our 70+ blends of race fuel and the new product lines we’ve launched in the last several years, customers sometimes had difficulty finding the product information they were looking for,” Wall said.  “Our new platform is clearly segmented between product lines and applications so it will be easy for customers to zero in on the most appropriate VP product to meet their needs, whether it’s race fuel for their dirt bike, a small engine fuel for their chain saw or a fuel system cleaner for their street car.“

“While the site allows virtually all of VP’s products to be purchased online, a Dealer Locator feature will help customers find the nearest retail location for each of VP’s product categories as well as VP-branded gas stations,” Wall added.  “The relevant documentation frequently required by racers and engine builders such as fuel specs and SDS forms will be easy to find as well.”

“As in the past, we’ll post breaking news on the site regarding new products, race results and industry news,” Wall continued. “The site also features numerous videos containing product information, tutorials, company background and action sequences, with many in both English and Spanish.”

“We encourage our customers to visit our new website, check out the new features and let us know what they think,” concluded Wall.  “The new design is a quantum leap forward, but we’ll always be open to improvements.”
