San Antonio, TX (October 16, 2023) – VP Racing Fuels, Inc., regarded worldwide as the leader in fuel and performance fluids, greased the skids on the way to two wins for driver Mat Williamson at Super Dirt Week. On Monday, October 9, 2023, Williamson, from St Catherines, Ontario, won both the DIRTcar 358 Modified Salute to the Troops 150 and the Billy Whittaker Cars 200.
“VP Racing is proud of Mat’s outstanding accomplishments, and we’re proud that our VP ProGrade Racing Oil could help him cross the finish line, not once, but twice last week,” said Freddie Turza, Technical Manager, Research & Development at VP Racing. “Mat drives hard, putting his motors through ultimate stress, and VP ProGrade Racing Oils deliver ultimate protection. We’re just happy to do our part.”
Super Dirt Week’s Salute to the Troops 150 and the Billy Whitaker Cars 200 are two of the most demanding races at the weekend event. That’s why Williamson and Jeff Behrent of Behrent’s Performance Warehouse are VP believers. “With VP Racing Oil, we trusted the fuel for so many years, it was easy to switch to the oil,” said Williamson, “and we’re glad that we did.” “VP is there for us,” added Behrent, “they deliver the same oil, the same fuel on a consistent basis. And that’s what our race teams need.” Behrent is the owner of two of the four cars raced by Williamson. Watch Williamson and Behrent’s full interview here.
Williamson had an amazing week and a more amazing day when he drove his way into Victory Lane for the second time on October 9th at Oswego Speedway after taking the checkers in the Billy Whittaker Cars 200 Monday afternoon in the big block #88 car owned by Buzz Chew. His third victory of the prestigious race followed his first-ever small block DIRTcar 358 Modified Salute to the Troops 150 win in the #6 car owned by Cocco Wendt. These back-to-back wins make Williamson only the fourth driver in history to sweep both titles in the same year – and now the first to do it on the same day.
