Story By: BOB MERZ / VP RACING FUELS – SAN ANTONIO, TX – VP Racing Fuels, Inc., a global leader in performance fuels, lubricants, and additives, Thursday announced a significant expansion of their partnership with the Road to Indy.
Through 2025, VP’s role as the Official Fuel has grown to include designation as the Official Lubricant and Official Coolant for Indy Lights, the Indy Pro 2000 Championship, and the USF2000 Championship.
“We are excited to expand our relationship with the Road to Indy beyond our industry-leading race fuels, with our Stay Frosty® coolants and VP Racing Lubricants,” said Bruce Hendel, Vice President of North American Sales – Race Fuel and Consumer Products for VP Racing Fuels. “Our water-based, glycol-free race-ready coolant reduces engine temps up to 25°F and cylinder head temps up to 75°F. And our hi-performance street version also lowers engine and cylinder temps. Reducing engine temperatures improves power and reliability, while our specially formulated Racing Oils provide ultimate engine protection for race teams and fans alike.”
VP is the exclusive fuel supplier for all three levels of the Road to Indy driver development ladder system and will promote through at-track product displays, an expanded social media program, original content featuring Road to Indy drivers, advertisements during live streaming race coverage, and the addition of a season-ending VP cash award.
With market competitive pricing, competitors will also see a cost-saving on all Official VP Racing Fuels products.
“VP’s passion for motorsports and commitment to quality is unrivaled,” said Dan Andersen, Owner, and CEO of Andersen Promotions. “We are proud to not only continue but expand our relationship with VP across our three series and look forward to mapping out the expanded list of deliverables between our two companies, which will offer benefits in several new areas to our competitors.”
In addition to adding VP Racing Engine Oil and the new line of Stay Frosty® Performance Engine Coolants, VP’s Hand Sanitizer formula will be utilized in the Road to Indy paddock to assist customers and partners during the pandemic.
