VP-Fuel Riders Keep Rolling, Others Boiling!

MR-PRO5 Providing Podium Power

SAN ANTONIO, TX  – June 13, 2011 – (Motor Sports Newswire) –  From AMA Supercross to the Outdoor Nationals, VP Racing Fuels continues to prove it has championship caliber brews.  Ryan Villopoto and Broc Tickle each used VP’s MR-PRO5 fuel in their Kawasakis to wrap up the 2011 AMA 450 and 250 Supercross championships respectively, in May.  The Outdoor Nationals season is unfolding in similar fashion, with Chad Reed winning the first two events at Hangtown and Freestone on his VP-powered Honda, followed by Villopoto’s win at High Point this past weekend on his Monster Energy Kawasaki.

At Freestone, Ryan Dungey was reminded to finish first, first you must finish, which didn’t happen as fuel problems brought him to a stop on the final lap.  Going renegade with his fuel cost Ryan the win, which understandably would leave any rider boiling mad.

By contrast, VP powered riders have enjoyed not only the extra horsepower MR-PRO5 offers, but the consistency and stability of a fuel with superior vaporization and lower RVP.  With power gains across the whole rpm range and consistent performance from the first lap to the last, it’s not surprising to see Team VP continue to enjoy the rarified air on the podium.

VP’s motorcycle fuels have enjoyed unparalleled success throughout North America and Europe, dominating the Supercross, Motocross, Superbike and Supermoto classes in AMA, as well as fueling multiple winners in the Isle of Man TT and powering Team USA to five consecutive championships in Motocross des Nations.

VP’s fuels are conveniently available throughout North America, Europe and performance shops around the world.  To find the nearest retail location, customers can contact the appropriate VP Regional Distribution Center, each of which is listed online at vpracingfuels.com.  Customers with technical questions can contact VP’s Tech Staff at 210-241-1192 or email MotorcycleTech@vpracingfuels.com.
