No matter the form of racing, fuel is important to ensuring success. From drag racing to road racing to any motorized sport in between, having fuel on-site means racers can quickly and easily acquire fuel for their race cars. Consistent quality and fresh fuel is guaranteed. VP Racing Fuels, a brand synonymous with all manner of motorsports that has been fueling champions since 1975, has signed on with Formula Drift as Official Fuel of Formula Drift and will be on-site at each Formula Drift round of competition distributing fuel to race teams that need fuel service.

“We are very pleased to bring VP Racing Fuels into the Formula Drift family,” said Ryan Sage, vice president and cofounder of Formula Drift. “They are a brand we have aspired to work with, and now with this partnership we can better serve the needs of drivers and ensure the convenient availability of top quality fuel.”

“The growing popularity of Formula DRIFT is remarkable and this partnership presents a great opportunity to help build awareness of VP’s brand and our expanding product lines,” said Chris Wall, VP’s chief marketing officer. “For years, racers have relied on VP blends like C16 or VP Import for the consistency, increased horsepower, and torque necessary to satisfy the unique demands that drifting places on fuel. However, for those racers committed to an ethanol blend, we now offer new X85 and X98. We look forward to introducing competitors to these new blends and servicing the fuel needs of Formula Drift for years to come.”

VP is the Official Racing Fuel of the WeatherTech SportsCar Championship, AMA Supercross, NMRA, NMCA, World of Outlaws Sprint Cars and Late Models, Pirelli World Challenge, PDRA, and Rally America, among more than 60 VP-sponsored series and sanctioning bodies.
