San Antonio, TX – VP Racing Fuels today announced the extension of a long-standing relationship with Atco Dragway in New Jersey. For over fifteen years, VP has been the official fuel and this agreement will extend through 2020.
“I know VP’s a better fuel and it’s a very consistent fuel. VP has something for every application and those factors all lead to good fuel sales. I’m very happy with our sales and continuing our relationship,” said Atco’s Len Capone.
“I’m very happy to get this extension done with Atco,” said Tim Hogue, VP Regional Manager. “Len Capone and his entire staff do a great job at the track and everyone at VP is proud to be associated with them. We are looking forward to a great 2018 season at Atco.”
In the competitive world of NHRA and IHRA class drag racing, Steve Furr has been the measurement of success for over two decades. Furr has found himself in more than 150 final rounds in recent years, propelling himself to multiple divisional and national championships. Performance and consistency are hallmarks of both VP Racing Fuels and the Furr Racing Program.
“I recently switched over my Par Racing Engine Powered 68′ Camaro from a competitor’s product to VP X14 and have had great results,” said Furr. “Being a mechanical engineer, I have a desire to test everything and prove things for myself. I am very impressed with the repeatability and consistency of this fuel and that’s what 9.90 racing is all about,” Furr continued.
“Jim had a significant role at VP for nearly thirty years,” Director of Marketing Donato Bonacquisto offered. “He retired a few years back to write his first novel and spend more time with his family in Pennsylvania. While he remained with us as a consultant it was thought that his passion for VP and his exceptional writing skills would be of additional value to the team.”
Kelly added, “I have enjoyed writing, promotions and advertising throughout my career, and returning to VP to assist with VP’s marketing and communication efforts seemed to be a natural path for us to follow. I am excited to be returning to VP and adding value to VP’s expanding marketing and promotional efforts.”
Kevin Brannon, from Boiling Springs, South Carolina, is passionate about most things in his life, but perhaps the most passionate is sportsman drag racing. Kevin who is more affectionately known to many as simply “KB” will be pursuing a 2018 championship fueled by VP’s new X14. It doesn’t matter if it’s an NHRA National Event or a Big Money bracket race, KB is certainly a favorite to win.
“Having both on the track and in the dyno room experience, I was able to see first-hand what VP could bring to my program,” said Brannon. “The opportunity to partner with a globally recognized company that is as respected as VP certainly makes a lot of sense,” continued Brannon. “My wife Ivey and I are really excited to see what the 2018 racing season has in store.”

Breast cancer is the second most common cancer affecting women and about 1 in 8 women born today in the United States will get breast cancer at some point. The good news is that most women can survive breast cancer if it’s found and treated early. A mammogram – the screening test for breast cancer – can help find breast cancer early when it’s easier to treat. National Breast Cancer Awareness Month is a chance to raise awareness about the importance of early detection of breast cancer. Make a difference! Spread the word about mammograms and encourage communities, organizations, families, and individuals to get involved.
