VP RACING FUELS PARTNERS WITH THE UNITED WAY TO SUPPORT VICTIMS OF HURRICANE HARVEY IN SOUTH TEXAS

SAN ANTONIO, TX (September 18, 2017) VP Racing Fuels, known for its high-performance consumer automotive and powersport products is donating 20,000 t-shirts to the hurricane stricken area through its affiliation with the United Way of Texas (www.uwtexas.org). It’s a small way for VP to help a region that expects close to half-a-million people to seek disaster assistance because flooding drove them from their homes and neighborhoods.

Alan Cerwick, President of VP Racing Fuels states: “As a local Texas based manufacturer that supports our residents and with employees that have family and regional ties to the affected area, being able to provide clothing for our community in a time of need in the Houston area is just a friendly gesture on our part to help residents affected by this tragic event. We ask anyone and any regional business to take our lead and contact the United Way and give whatever you can to those who need it most.”

VP RACING TO SPONSOR SCOTT BLOOMQUIST

Veteran Racer Counting on VP’s Power and Consistency

SAN ANTONIO, TX (September 18, 2017) VP Racing Fuels today announced a new sponsorship agreement with veteran dirt Late Model racer Scott Bloomquist.  Arguably the most successful dirt track racer in history with multiple series championships and crown jewel wins, Bloomquist will use VP’s Late Model Plus™ racing fuel exclusively through the remainder of the 2017 and 2018 seasons.

“I look for fuels to make good power, of course, but first and foremost they have to be consistent,” said Bloomquist.  “There are so many variables to be managed in a racing program like ours – fuel is one that we don’t want to have to worry about.  Octane for octane, VP has always made the most power among all the fuels on the market but it also offers me peace of mind — knowing we can count on its consistent quality from drum to drum, race to race.”

“We’re excited to welcome Scott Bloomquist to Team VP,” said Mark Ticen, Senior Director of Sales – Race Fuel. “It’s a real tribute to the quality of VP’s products to have a racer of Scott’s stature put his confidence in us.  We look forward to working with Scott and sharing the Winner’s Circle with him for years to come.”
