VP Racing Fuels Named Official Fuel of Can-Am Grand National Cross Country Series

Morgantown, W.Va. (February 24, 2010) - Racer Productions, producers of the Can-Am Grand National Cross Country Series, is excited to announce that VP Racing Fuels is the Official Fuel of GNCC Racing under a three-year agreement beginning with the 2010 season.

"VP has long been a leader in the motorcycling industry and we are happy to introduce them as our new fuel sponsor for the 2010 season," said Dean Van Leeuwen, GNCC Sponsor Coordinator. "Many of our racers are already familiar with the increased power and consistency of VP fuels and we're confident they'll appreciate having VP's products readily available at the track."

VP will have fuel available on site at all 13 rounds, including its new U4.4, MRX01 and C12, along with other VP specialty blends. VP will kick off its sponsorship this weekend at the Parts Unlimited River Ranch GNCC at the Westgate River Ranch GNCC in Lake Wales, Florida.

"We're thrilled about partnering with GNCC," said Steve Scheidker, VP's Director of Marketing and Communications. "VP has been a strong supporter of motorcycle and ATV racing for many years, fueling numerous championships across North America and around the world, so it's a natural fit for VP to be the Official Fuel of GNCC Racing."

"The nations' premier off-road series, GNCC provides the perfect venue for VP to promote its leading edge fuels, in particular its newest blend for powersports-U4.4," Scheidker added. "U4.4 offers up to 6% more power than premium pump gas, better throttle response and more resistance to heat, offering the biggest gain vs. cost of any performance part a GNCC competitor can put on a bike or ATV."
