San Antonio, Texas, USA (January 24, 2019) VP Racing Fuels, Inc., known for powering racers and champions in all forms of motorsport, today announced their partnership with The Torque Show live on Motor Trend’s Facebook Live page, also available on Motor Trend’s YouTube Channel.

Hosted by GT2 LeMans and World Champion Justin Bell and Five-Time IMSA Champion Tommy Kendall, The Torque Show is set to bring this world in all of its richness to fans around the globe. Broadcast from the IMSA Paddock during the Rolex 24 Hour Race at Daytona, it is where everyone will naturally gather to hear their heroes share stories of the big wins, wild moments, heartbreaks, and some of the stuff not fit for television. Bell and Kendall will break down the action, take part in some good-natured ribbing, mediate some disputes, and do a little bit of celebrating too.

“Justin Bell and Tommy Kendall bring personality and incredible experiences from the sportscar series platform,” said Donato Bonacquisto, Director of Marketing at VP Racing Fuels. “Combine those two with Motor Trend and the Daytona 24 hours, and it was an easy decision to jump on board. The WeatherTech SportsCar Championship is the preeminent sports car racing series in North America, and as the Official Fuel Provider to IMSA we relate completely to The Torque Show’s slogan, Where Winners Hang.”
