San Antonio, TX (March 24, 2024) – VP Racing Fuels, Inc., regarded worldwide as the leader in performance fuels and automotive fluids, has been named Official Powersports Engine Oil for Giaccmoto Yamaha Racing, beginning with the 2024 season.

“VP Racing is proud to be the Official Powersports Engine Oil for Giaccmoto Yamaha Racing,” said Bruce Hendel, Senior Vice President – Global Sales for VP Racing. “Chuck Giacchetto’s team and riders always add to MotoAmerica’s heart-pounding racing, and we’re excited to help them maximize their performance and protect their engines along the way. And we’re equally excited that VP’s full lubricants line, brake fluids, aerosols, and appearance products are also part of Giacmoto’s racing arsenal.”

As MotoAmerica’s Spec Fuel, VP Racing has established its reputation as a powersports products expert. VP powersports engine oils are also the choice of championship teams in the series, further proof of that reputation.

“I want to welcome VP Racing to the Giaccmoto Yamaha Racing family,” Chuck Giacchetto said. “VP Racing is synonymous with racing of every kind and description, and we have spent the majority of our years racing using VP products. We started our 2024 campaign in full force at Daytona International Speedway by using VP’s full line of lubricants and motor oils. So far, everything has gone very well with all the VP Racing products, and we are exceptionally pleased with the results. Last weekend was our home event at Michelin Raceway Road Atlanta, and we proudly represented VP Racing while promoting the brand’s ‘You’ll love our lubes’ tagline.”

Campaigning the Yamaha YZF-R7, Giaccmoto Yamaha Racing’s team of riders includes winning veteran Dominic Doyle and exciting rookie Sonya Lloyd. Starting the 2024 season at Daytona International Speedway, aboard his Giaccmoto Racing Yamaha YZF-R7, Doyle finished as runner-up in Twins Cup race one held at the “World Center of Racing.” Also at Daytona, Lloyd made her professional road racing debut aboard a Giaccmoto Yamaha Racing YZF-R7, finishing a very impressive 12th in each of the two races held, outperforming more than half of the 24 riders entered in the two races.
