San Antonio, TX (February 21. 2019) VP Racing Fuels, Inc., the official fuel supplier for SCORE and BEST IN THE DESERT, provided off-road power and reliability for Luke McMillin’s win at King of the Hammers Desert Invitational, regarded as the toughest one-day off-road race on the planet.

“We’re known around the world for fueling everything that goes fast and wins on dirt, asphalt, or the water,” said Bruce Hendel, VP’s Vice President, North American Sales – Race Fuels and Consumer Products. “Off-road racing, desert racing, Baja, you name it, VP’s providing the same power and reliability racers can rely on so they can focus on the incredible terrains and the competition.”

KOH Week takes place each year in February, on public lands in Johnson Valley, California and is the largest off-road event in North America. Last year more than 500 teams registered to compete throughout the week and 50,000 spectators were in attendance and nearly 500,000 watching online.

In describing the event, McMillin was quoted, “It’s funny; this course is different than other desert races we do. It’s hard to describe. It’s extreme rock and ditches. It’s a good old fashion desert race like we used to do in Barstow and Plaster City. That’s kind of what it felt like with the gnarly rock climbs. It’s very different than Baja or anything else, but I loved it. It was an awesome course.”
