VP Racing Fuels Becomes Official Fuel Supplier of Pro Cup Series
Mooresville, N.C. – The CARS Pro Cup Series announced last week that VP Racing Fuels will be the Official Fuel Supplier for the 2012 season.
It was a decision months in the making, that started when Pro Cup President Jack McNelly attended the PRI Trade Show last December. After weeks of meetings, phone calls and emails, it was clearly evident that VP Racing Fuels was the best fuel partner for the series.
“We spent a great amount of time this off-season working with various fuel suppliers to find the one that was the best fit for our series. The more time we spent on the issue and the better we got to know everyone at VP, the decision was very easy to make. We are looking forward to a great season, with VP Racing providing our fuel,” said McNelly.
Teams will use the VP 110 Racing Fuel as the spec fuel for all 14 events.
