Under the agreement, VP’s CRT, a proprietary race fuel blend for exclusive use by all CARS competitors, has been designated as Spec Fuel for the series, according to a press release.
In addition to being named the official fuel of the tour, VP Racing Fuels will be the title sponsor of the Super Late Model division. The CARS Super Late Model Tour fueled by VP Racing Fuels, along with the CARS Late Model Stock Car division, takes the green flag on the 2016 season beginning in April.
“VP Racing Fuels has supported our endeavors dating back to the Pro Cup Series day and has never wavered with that support. To be able to announce a long-term partnership with them says a lot about their commitment to our series and our competitors going forward,” said Jack McNelly, owner of CARS Tour. “A solid marketing partner like VP Racing Fuels as our Super Late Model division sponsor allows the series to grow in a direction we desire; just as VP wants to grow within the short track pavement market along with us.”
For each event, trackside fuel service will be provided by VP or its designated distributor, the release noted.
“We’re very pleased to continue our partnership with the CARS Tour,” said Chris Wall, VP’s chief marketing officer. “The CARS Tour provides a great proving ground for younger racers and we appreciate the opportunity to provide them and their veteran counterparts with a top-quality fuel like CRT. We look forward to working with Jack and his team to help grow the series for years to come.”
