VP Racing Fuels Aligns with Texas Motorplex


Texas Motorplex track officials announced an agreement naming VP Racing Fuels the Official Racing Fuel of the Texas Motorplex for the 2011 season. VP will be the exclusive supplier of race fuels on site with VP110, C12, unleaded VP100 and an array of VP’s other specialty fuels available in drums and pails. As part of the agreement, racers also will be eligible for special VP Racing Fuels prizes and giveaways throughout the Texas Motorplex Bracket Racing Series.
“We are thrilled to have VP Racing Fuels as part of the Texas Motorplex family,” Motorplex General Manager Gabrielle Stevenson said. “VP does an outstanding job of providing racers of all levels the high-performance fuel they need to make every run count and we appreciate their continued support of racing from the grassroot level all the way up to the professionals.
“Our racers will just benefit by having VP Racing Fuels on site and the track will benefit from having such a well-respected partner come on board this season.”
“VP is proud to partner with Texas Motorplex, long one of the premier motorsports facilities in the country,” said Brad Horton, Regional Manager for VP.  “We’re excited about working with Billy Meyer and his staff and look forward to providing quality fuels at their historic facility for many years to come.”
The first event at which VP Racing Fuels will be available will be the March 5 driver’s meeting and test-n-tune. The Texas Motorplex Bracket Racing Series has its official points kickoff on Sunday, March 13. Gates open at 8 a.m., time trials begin at 10 a.m. and eliminations will start at Noon.
All Sunday bracket events will feature a RFC Chapel service at 8:30 a.m. in Champion’s Club. Check www.texasmotorplex.com for more details and up-to-the-minute event information.
Texas Motorplex was the first all-concrete stadium-style drag racing facility ever constructed. Built in 1986, Texas Motorplex has been the place of many drag racing milestones and world record performances. The Billy Meyer-owned facility hosts a number of racing and car show events between March and November each year and also features the Champion’s Club – an 11,000 square-foot facility – that serves fully catered events throughout the year.
VP Racing is the Official Racing Fuel of NHRA Championship Drag Racing, American Drag Racing League (ADRL), American LeMans, World of Outlaws Sprint Cars and Late Models, among nearly 60 VP-sponsored series.
In addition to racing fuels, VP recently introduced SEF Small Engine Fuel, formulated specifically for portable gas-powered equipment to ensure quicker, more dependable starts and worry-free long-term storage. More information is available online at www.vpracingfuels.com and www.SEFfuels.com.
