Trackside Fuel Service To Be Provided for October Mega-Event

SAN ANTONIO, TX (July 31, 2017) Promoter Randy Folk today introduced VP Racing Fuels as the Official Fuel of The Million Dollar Drag Race scheduled October 19-22 at Montgomery Raceway Park in Montgomery, Alabama.  As part of its sponsorship, VP will provide trackside fuel service throughout the event.

Celebrating its 22nd consecutive year, The Million offers racers across the country an opportunity to compete for life-changing payouts.  The annual event often pays in excess of $300,000, making The Million home of the largest payday in drag racing history!  Through the efforts of Folk and his daughter, Jennifer, The Million Dollar Drag Race has shown continued growth over the last two decades and keeps drivers, fans, and sponsors alike returning year after year. The race now features more than 300 entries in the prestigious main Million event, and over 600 racers competing in the three companion races, which pay $25,000 as the top prize each day.

“We are pleased to have VP Racing Fuels on board as the Official Fuel of the Million and look forward to working with them in the years to come,” said Folk.  “In addition to selling fuel, VP has also provided us with specialty fuel give-aways for the racers as well!”

“We’re pleased to be able to support the Million Dollar Drag Race as its Official Fuel,” said Mark Ticen, VP’s Senior Director of Race Fuel Sales.  “This sponsorship is in keeping with VP’s longstanding support of bracket racers and we couldn’t ask for better partners than Randy and Jennifer in our efforts to continue growing the sport of drag racing.”

Gates for The Million will open for parking on Tuesday at noon, and will remain open all night. With no gate admission, everyone gets in for FREE!  Wednesday will feature a FREE test and tune from 9am-4pm. Following the T&T will be the “Race to The Million” 64 car shootout.

This race will award four Million entries to the top four finishers, including a full weekend entry to the winner and round money starting with 1st round winners.
