San Antonio, TX (April 9 2018) VP Racing Fuels, Inc., today announced the signing of a multi-year extension of their Official Fuel and fuel service agreement with Rockingham Dragway in North Carolina.

“Rockingham has an ongoing 37-year streak as the host of at least one major national drag racing championship,” offered Nick Fontana, VP Racing Fuels Operations Manager – South, “We’ve been their fuel of choice for what will be twelve years with this agreement. They put on a great show and Steve Earwood continues to strive to make the track even better every year.”

Rockingham Dragway is in its fifth decade of operation as a upper echelon American drag racing facility, one that for all but three years since 1969 has hosted at least one major event under the sanction of either the now defunct American Hot Rod Association, the International Hot Rod Association or the National Hot Rod Association.

“We have renewed with VP Racing Fuels for another three-year stint,” offered Rockingham Dragway owner Steve Earwood, “Making nine years we have enjoyed serving our racers with great VP products.  Not only is their fuel unrivaled, but also their traction compounds, particularly LC5, LC7 and Starting Line Resin (SLR), give us the best possible traction in all weather conditions.  The service by our VP distributor, Bobby Taylor Oil Company, is unparalleled with furnishing us with products in a timely manner and with maintaining our equipment.”
