VP’s C9 Added to NHRA Approved List 

Racers in Stock and Super Stock can expect more power….. 

VP Racing Fuels April 27th the addition of its new C9TM unleaded formula to the NHRA’s Approved Fuel List.

“C9 is an impressive new fuel that will outperform the standard 110 fuels available in the field, including our own,” said Jim Kelly, VP’s Director of Race Fuel Sales. “It’s a non-oxygenated formula that in dyno tests made 4-6 more HP and torque than the 110 baseline. With an octane rating of 96 (R+M/2), C9 is ideal for Stock and Super Stock applications with compression ratios up to 11:1.” 

Track tests in the Northeast on the quarter mile and on oval tracks showed C9 will have an immediate impact on performance regardless of the type of racing. Notably, it was recently selected as the Spec Fuel of the ACT American Canadian Tour and Castrol Series in Canada. In addition to the performance gains seen on the ACT tour and in stock and super stock drag cars, ethanol-free C9 is an ideal fuel for improving performance in crate engines as well as competition quads, motocross bikes and sleds. Because C9 is ethanol-free, it can be of particular benefit in marine racing applications.

“Racers with lower compression ratios who are currently relying on the standard 110 fuels should really give C9 a look,” Kelly added. “It’s a product we are particularly proud of—it makes more power without a high price tag.” 

C9 is available through VP’s extensive dealer/distributor network and factory direct, contacts for which can be found online at http://www.vpracingfuels.com/vp-racing-dealers.html
