A new program, targeted at racers of any type of motorsport, no matter the participation level, has been launched by VP Racing Fuels as a way to celebrate the company’s 40th anniversary in 2015. The VP Racing Fuels Elite Program, announced in June 2015, offers a Racer Support Kit, including VP-branded apparel and other items, plus the ability for qualified racers to receive 40 percent off of the purchase of any new VP Racing Lubricant product with free shipping. Additional discounts on other VP Racing products will be made available to racers that are registered in the Elite Program as well. The “VP Racing Fuels Elite Program” will also recognize the thousands of racers, past and present, whose loyal support helped VP Racing Fuels achieve its industry-leading position today.

“We’re excited to launch this program in support of the many racers who have come to rely on VP Racing Fuels for maximum power and performance,” said Chris Wall, VP’s Chief Marketing Officer. “It requires hard work to succeed on the track and we look forward to recognizing and supporting racers who have moved to the front of the pack through their dedication and persistence.”

VP Racing Lubricants, a new product line recently introduced by VP, includes a complete line of fully synthetic racing oils, as-well-as engine break-in oil. “These lubricants provide exceptional performance at a very cost-effective price,” said Steve Burns, VP’s Director of R&D. “Tested in the lab, on the dyno and at the track, racers will find them to be best-in-class at an economical price point; and they can be confident each of our lubricants incorporates the same leading technology and passion for performance that we bring to our world-leading race fuels.” These race-only oils include 10W40, 5W30, and 15W50 viscosities that are engineered specifically for racing and high-performance use. Designed for closed-course racing, these oils are not compatible with late-model vehicles that utilize catalytic converters in their exhaust systems. Lastly, VP Racing’s Break-In oil, formulated in a 10W40 viscosity, is designed to protect cams and valvetrain components during the initial break-in phase of these new parts.

To register for the Elite Program, racers may visit to submit their race resume. Racers who compete in a series sponsored by VP Racing Fuels may be eligible for “Fast Track” approval, as indicated on the application form.
