VP RACING FUELS POWERS RAY EVERNHAM FOR THE 2018 RACE SEASON!

VP Racing Fuels is proud to announce a mutual partnership with Ray Evernham, racing legend & innovator, for the 2018 racing season and his new project called the “Ghost.” This modified retro racer may look like a show piece, but it is far from it. NASCAR Hall of Fame crew chief and team owner Ray Evernham has combined his admiration for old school automotive styling and aesthetics with his knowledge and access to modern day technology and performance. The concept for this car was born out of Evernham’s passion for vintage race cars, respect for innovation and concern for safety. Nicknamed the “Ghost”, this modified molds all three of those together into a car that will turn heads on and off the race track, while also giving Evernham the peace of mind needed to drive it to its full potential.

“When preparing for the 2018 race season with my new race car, the Ghost, the last decision we had to make was the fuel that would help us produce the most power out of the car’s SB2 motor. We have used VP Racing Fuels products for years with my vintage race cars so they were my first call. VP is not just a great partner because of their wide variety of products but also because of the technical support they provide. Their technicians will be working hand-in-hand with our partners at AEM Electronics to make sure the fuel map matches up properly with the type of fuel that is being run so everything is working seamlessly,” said Evernham.

“I know that Ray is a performance driven professional. The same goes for the projects he’s involved in. VP Racing Fuels and I feel the same way. Our hashtag – MAKIN’ POWER – means just that! There is a lot of depth and technology in this project and we at VP feel we can assist in enhancing the performance of the Ghost Project,” said Freddie Turza, Technical Manager – Race Fuels.

Evernham will be taking his modified to several vintage races next year but will focus efforts and the web series on these 5 events:

• SVRA event at Indianapolis Motor Speedway

• Vintage event at Pocono Raceway

• Drag session at zMax Dragway

• Landspeed Trial Run on the Bonneville Salt Flats

• Pikes Peak Hill Climb – driven by Al Unser, Jr. at this event.

About the Race Car – “Ghost”

Housed under a 1936 Chevrolet sedan body, this specialty-built race car has the appearance of a modified that would have been raced during the 1960s, but features state-of-the-art mechanics and electronics. The chassis was custom designed and built from the ground up by Evernham and his team at Big Iron Garage the old-fashioned way, without any help from computers.

The car was built with a wide range of adjustability so it can be set up to compete on different types of tracks, including ovals, road courses, drag strips and hill climbs and is powered by an All-Aluminum Chevrolet SB2 by Pro Motor Engineering and delivers 410 CI, 850 peak horsepower and 626 ft/lbs of peak torque. Evernham plans to drive the car himself, while also putting other professional drivers behind the wheel to test its limits.
