Chapman Returns to VP Racing Fuels

VP Racing Fuels Inc. has welcomed the return of longtime employee Tommy Chapman as an independent sales representative.

Chapman will be headquartered in Georgia to support VP’s sales efforts in the southern U.S. region, which includes Georgia, North Carolina, South Carolina and Alabama. He will be responsible for developing and servicing customer accounts while also providing technical consulting on race fuels and VP’s StayWet track conditioner. He’ll also be involved in activating VP’s marketing and promotional programs.

Having spent 18 years earlier in his career with VP, Chapman brings a wealth of knowledge and experience to his new position, according to Mark Ticen, VP’s director of race fuel sales. “Tommy will be a great asset for us given that he’s been embedded in the motorsports scene for nearly 60 years and knows virtually everyone who’s raced on a track or built an engine for competition,” Ticen said.

Chapman started his career in 1957 as a full-time drag racer, ultimately winning the Georgia State Championship. He continued racing part-time while working for the U.S. Treasury Department as a criminal investigator for 25 years before retiring in 1990. In 1992, Chapman joined VP Racing Fuels as its Regional Manager-South where he stayed until retiring again in 2010.

Chapman can be reached at 706-466-3790 or [email protected].
