GLENDORA, Calif. -- The National Hot Rod Association (NHRA) announced VP Racing Fuels, long-time supplier of fuel to participating racers, as the official racing fuel of the NHRA.

With this designation, VP Racing Fuels will be the exclusive on-site gasoline supplier at all NHRA Winston Drag Racing Series national events and the Winston Showdown. VP Racing Fuels gasoline will be mandatory in the Pro Stock, Pro Stock Truck and Pro Stock Motorcycle categories at national events and Competition Eliminator categories at both national and NHRA Federal-Mogul Drag Racing Series divisional events. The partnership is a three-year agreement beginning in 2000 and through the 2002 racing season.

"VP Racing Fuels was the natural choice for NHRA," said Graham Light, senior vice president of racing operations. "For more than 20 years, VP has demonstrated unsurpassed service and technical support to the racing community. With a majority share of the marketplace and the ability to provide a full range of fuel products, including nitromethane, at competitive prices, VP Racing Fuels was the choice to handle our unique needs.

"As the exclusive on-site gasoline supplier, VP Racing Fuels will provide a 'spec' fuel that will level the playing field for competitors where gasoline becomes a constant versus a variable," concluded Light. VP will provide on-site service and technical support at national events, as well as at testing and Federal-Mogul Drag Racing Series venues.

"We are proud of our long history and relationship with the National Hot Rod Association," said Fred Morrison, president, and Steve Burns, vice president, of VP Racing Fuels. "Providing appropriate support onsite, while making available all forms of racing fuels at a competitive price, is the standard by which VP Racing Fuels does business and wants to be measured."

NHRA has 85,000 members nationwide and 142 member tracks. NHRA-sanctioned sportsman and bracket racing series provide competition opportunities for drivers of all levels.
