VP Racing Fuels and the fabled Texas Motorplex in Ennis, Texas today jointly announced today that VP has been named as the Official Racing Fuel of the Motorplex for the 2011 season. With the agreement, VP will become the exclusive supplier of on-site race fuels with many of their popular fuel blends, including VP110, C12, the unleaded VP100, and several other specialty fuels available in drums and pails. Racers will also be eligible for special VP Racing Fuels prizes and giveways throughout the regular weekly bracket racing series schedule.
“We are thrilled to have VP Racing Fuels as part of the Texas Motorplex family,” Motorplex General Manager Gabrielle Stevenson said. “VP does an outstanding job of providing racers of all levels the high-performance fuel they need to make every run count and we appreciate their continued support of racing from the grassroot level all the way up to the professionals.
“Our racers will just benefit by having VP Racing Fuels on site and the track will benefit from having such a well-respected partner come on board this season.”
“VP is proud to partner with Texas Motorplex, long one of the premier motorsports facilities in the country,” said Brad Horton, Regional Manager for VP. “We’re excited about working with Billy Meyer and his staff and look forward to providing quality fuels at their historic facility for many years to come.”
The Texas Motorplex will kick off the new year on March 5 with a drivers meeting and test ‘n tune, with the official points series kicked off for the Texas Motorplex Bracket Racing Series beginning on Sunday, March 13.
Built in 1986, the Texas Motorplex was the first track to feature an all-concrete surface and stadium-style seating. Owned by former Funny Car driver Billy Meyer, the facility hosts racing and car show events between March and November each year and recently opened the Champions Club: an 11,000 square foot structure that serves fully catered events throughout the season.
