San Antonio, TX (May 31, 2019) VP Racing Fuels, Inc., recognized as the dominant fuel in off-road racing, is proud to acknowledge Gavin Harlien as the winner of the 2019 Robby Gordon Stadium SUPER Trucks Challenge.

“Gavin has shown exceptional talent,” said Bruce Hendel, VP’s Vice President, North American Sales – Race Fuels and Consumer Products. “I had the pleasure to meet this young man at COTA personally. We are proud to have Gavin represent VP Racing Fuels in SST and suspect he will be a force to reckon with in 2019.”

The VP Racing Fuels Driver Challenge was contested among Harlien, Blade Hildebrand, and Jeff Hoffman during the first three SST events held in Texas and California using a scoring system based on driver performance, driver media/marketing & fan judging of which driver performed the best on and off the track with the overall winner receiving sponsorship from VP.

“It was a tough battle between two very talented up and coming drivers, but in the end, Gavin Harlien edged out Blade Hildebrand to win the 2019 VP Racing Fuels Driver Challenge,” said Robbie Gordon, founder of Stadium Super Trucks. “As a young driver, it means everything to have the support of a well-known company like VP Racing Fuels on the side of your truck. When you arrive at the track, the competition and fans already know that you are one of the favorites to win. Congratulations again to Gavin Harlien on winning the challenge, I know he will do an excellent job on and off the track for VP Racing Fuels during the remainder of the 2019 Stadium SUPER Trucks season.”
