SAN ANTONIO, TX USA – VP Racing Fuels, Inc., is recognized around the world for fuel performance, professional on-site fuel service, and technical support and at this year’s Bonneville Speed Week, racers headed to the famed salt flats will be relying on VP as the Official Fuel of Bonneville Speed Week, August 10 – 16.
“We run the world’s fastest pickup at 262 mph,” offered Wayne Jesel of Jesel Valvetrain in New Jersey. “We’ve been going to the flats since 2006 and currently hold 9 class records including 4 in naturally aspirated and 5 in turbo engine combinations. This year we’ll be chasing the records again and using VP C25 in the normally aspirated engines and C16 with the turbos. We’re pleased VP will be on site this year. It’s all we used to use when we drag raced, and now VP’s fueling Bonneville.”
With a reputation for making power, product consistency, and reliable on-site fuel service VP Racing Fuels has been the choice of racers, engine builders, tracks and sanctioning bodies for decades.
“VP Fuels has a storied history in all forms of racing,” added Ron Liddell, NASCAR Cup Series race-winning engine builder. “It’s exciting to tap into that performance advantage at the Bonneville Salt Flats. Setting a land speed record is not an easy task. Knowing the level of performance and consistency VP fuels provides, we feel confident in our efforts and will be running VP C-14 at the 2019 Speed week event.”
“I’ll be at the event all week,” said VP’s Technical Manager Freddie Turza. “That’s a big part of the VP R&D program. We’re here to help racers and engine builders make the best fuel selection and then provide assistance with any fuel-related questions they might have.”
