California 300 officials are pleased to announce that VP Racing Fuels will serve as the Official Fuel Partner of the Inaugural California 300, coming to Barstow, California on October 12-16. The relationship between VP Racing Fuels and the Martelli Brothers will extend from the world-renowned Mint 400 to their newest race, and will see VP on-site at the event as both an exhibitor prior to the racing and as a fuel provider ready to supply the hundreds of racers that will take on the grueling 75-mile race course ahead of them.
“We’re thrilled to welcome VP Racing Fuels as one of the original partners and the Official Fuel Provider of the California 300,” said California 300 CEO Matt Martelli. “The world’s top off-road racers have been relying on VP’s line of specially developed racing fuels to power them to the finish in the world’s greatest races for years, including the Mint 400, and we’re excited to carry that relationship over into this race. Be sure to look out for them on-site, and don’t miss watching VP-powered racers in action as they do battle in Barstow this October!”
From a single location with two employees in San Antonio, Texas, VP has grown to over 200 employees with five company owned and operated race fuel distribution points in Texas, Indiana, Georgia, Delaware and Tennessee, as well as a regional office in southern California. Each of these distribution points maintains an inventory of VP fuels available for immediate transport within a day’s drive to virtually any major racing event in North America. The result is that racers and sanctioning bodies can count on access to availability of quality fuel. VP’s distribution network of 2000+ dealers around the world extends to Europe, Central and South America, Middle East, Africa, Asia and the Pacific Rim.
VP is now recognized by many as the world leader in race fuel technology, with a catalog of more than 80 fuel blends and a growing roster of VP-fueled champions across the entire spectrum of motorsports. The passion and dedication of VP’s development team to staying on the leading edge of technology is legendary. Most of VP’s employees are or have been racers in one form or another and are driven by the competitive will to win. Together, the VP team intends to solidify its position as the true World Leader in Race Fuel Technology for years to come. For more information on VP Racing Fuels, visit www.vpracingfuels.com.
