About VP Racing Fuels Inc.: VP Racing Fuels was founded by Steve Burns, who initially exhibited his aptitude for R&D in ‘the early 1970’s as a young racer in San Antonio, Texas. Self-taught in chemistry and physics, Steve was convinced the race fuel manufacturers of the day were falling short in their quest for optimum horsepower. To address this shortcoming, he began experimenting with exotic blends of fuel, much to the dismay of his parents whose garage served as Steve’s laboratory. Steve began at the local tracks of Texas, where racers tried his fuel and liked the power gains. His first fuel was christened “C12,” the word spread and Steve’s company was founded as VP Racing Fuels in 1974.
VP is now recognized by many as the world leader in race fuel technology, with a catalog of nearly 70 fuel blends and a growing roster of VP-fueled champions across the entire spectrum of motorsports. VP’s reputation for product quality, along with superior service and technical support, helped secure its position as the Official Racing Fuel of the largest racing sanctioning body in the world-NHRA Championship Drag Racing-as well as sponsor of nearly 60 other series and sanctioning bodies, including American LeMans, American Drag Racing League (ADRL), AMA Supercross, Star Mazda, World of Outlaws Sprint Cars and World of Outlaws Late Models among many others.
