San Antonio, Texas (December 3, 2018) VP Racing Fuels, a dominant force in off-road racing, fueled the Ford Raptor SCORE Trophy Truck driven by Cameron Steele and Pat Dean to victory in this year’s Baja 1000. To put an exclamation point on VP-fueled performances this season, Rob MacCachren locked up the 2018 SCORE Off-Road Championship by running on VP!

Racers from all over the globe converged on Ensenada, Mexico for the finale of the SCORE World Desert Championship and with only 62% of the entries able to finish the grueling run through the desert, preparation and determination were key to making it to the end.

“The whole team really deserves this. This isn’t just about one driver or two drivers, it’s about everyone that puts the will in,” said Steele. “The race started off wharky; we had a competitor come up from behind us and catch us on the pavement and then ram us in the dirt. We lost first gear about that time, so for us, it was about persevering until the end. We ran the entire thing with no first gear. They told me it would make it and they were right. I want to thank VP Racing Fuels and all of our sponsors.”

“Our fuels aren’t one size fits all, they are purpose built,” said Bruce Hendel, VP’s Vice President, North America Sales – Race Fuels & Consumer Products, “Our Late Model Plus fuel has become the fuel of choice for most in the Trophy Truck class for the additional octane value, performance and resistance to vapor lock in the typical high temps of desert racing. Cameron and Rob and their teams chose VP, and we congratulate them on their incredible accomplishments.”
