Championship Performance at an Economical Price
SAN ANTONIO, TX – When VP Racing Fuels first introduced X16™, it was described as a “perfect blend of performance and economy.” According to Jim Hughes, President of Hughes Motorsports, X16 has delivered on its promise and more. “We’ve used X16 to win national events in 3 different classes,” Hughes said.
“X16 is incredibly consistent – it offers a smooth air:fuel curve whether you’re bracket racing with throttle stop or all out. And it’s versatile – you can use it in different engines, from 800 Hp to 1500 Hp, with different compression ratios,” Hughes added. “We’re currently campaigning six cars in six different classes, so cost is an issue. It’s huge to be able to use the same fuel and be able to count on superior performance in each of our cars.”
Kevin Kleineweber, National Champion in Super Street, Super Gas and Super Comp for Hughes Motorsports, added, “The repeatability of X16 is awesome and it’s very economical. After using another brand that was more expensive, we’re now spending less and getting a more consistent product without losing any power.”
PITTSBORO, NC – There is nothing more important to competitive racers than safety. Not a new car, not massive amounts of horsepower, not even winning races and championships. Without an environment that is as safe as humanly possible nothing else matters.
Carl White understands this, and he lives it every day. A longtime racer and provider of safety equipment, White, through White Safety Equipment, is committed to using his experience and knowledge to make well-designed, quality safety equipment available to racers.

The NHRDA has hosted over 150 Events over the past decade and is the largest Diesel Motorsports Organization in the World. In 2014 the NHRDA celebrated their 10th Anniversary and reached a major mile mark by earning ASO (Alternative Sanction Organization) status from the NHRA.
Building on the success they had as an integral part of the PDRA’s inaugural 2014 season, Sonny’s Racing Engines, of Lynchburg, Virginia, has stepped up once again to the tune of $33,000 in contingency and bonus payouts.
This season the Sonny’s Pro Nitrous Low Qualifier Challenge will pay $500.00 to the No.1 qualifiers in the Switzer Dynamics Pro Nitrous category, regardless of what engine they use.

NORWALK, OH – The San Antonio Nationals originally scheduled for March 13 & 14, 2015 in San Antonio, Texas has been postponed. Replacing that date on the 2015 Nitro Jam Schedule will be the return of the Mardi Gras Nationals at State Capital Raceway, Baton Rouge, Louisiana.
“Time was simply running out for a resolution that the track could reopen in time to host the San Antonio Nationals in March,” said IHRA President Scott Gardner. “Our parent company, IRG Sports + Entertainment, have been in negotiations to purchase the facility for the past six months and are still pursuing the purchase of this facility. The only thing IRG was not able to confirm for us was a final timetable for the transaction, which is why we had to make this change in the schedule. We are optimistic we will return to San Antonio this fall once the ownership and direction of the facility becomes clear.”
