VP Racing Signs On For Three More Years As "Official Racing Fuel" of NHRA

SAN ANTONIO, TX (January 27, 2003) - The NHRA today announced an agreement that would make VP Racing Fuels the "Official Racing Fuel" of NHRA Championship Dragracing through 2006. With the agreement, VP will be the exclusive on-site supplier of racing gasoline at all NHRA national events. In addition, VP will provide ongoing technical support. As the official supplier, VP also supplies fuel for all NHRA Lucas Oil Series divisional events as well as NHRA Summit Sport Compact events.

"VP Racing has been a valuable partner of NHRA providing fuel for the race teams that generate the most horsepower in all of motorsports," said Gary Darcy, vice president marketing for NHRA. "We are pleased to extend this relationship through the 2006 racing season, based on VP's proven ability to supply a quality product and invaluable technical support."

"We couldn't be happier about continuing our relationship with NHRA," said Fred Morrison, VP's President and CEO. "As most people in the industry know, VP Racing is and always has been solely focused on racing. Our mission is to help build racing to be even bigger and better. So our association with the industry's preeminent sanctioning body makes us very proud and it's a responsibility we take very seriously."

VP Racing has been making the best fuels for motorsports since 1975, currently producing more than 50 unique blends.  With these blends, VP has fueled champions in virtually every racing category and class -- from drag racing, circle track and road racing to motocross, off-road, off-shore and even airplane racing.  In race venues not controlled by a fuel rule, VP consistently fuels more winners than any other American fuel company. VP's fuels have earned a reputation for superior power and consistency - as illustrated by the NHRA Pro Stock Champions who have made VP their fuel of choice for 28 consecutive years, a record unmatched by any major sponsor in the industry. In addition to being the Official Racing Fuel of NHRA Championship Dragracing, VP is the exclusive fuel supplier for AMA (American Motorcycle Association) Supercross; ASA (American Speed Association); Barber Dodge; IJSBA (International Jet Sports Boating Association); SKUSA (Superkarts! USA); Star Mazda; Stars of Tomorrow; and Toyota Atlantic, among many others.

In addition to fuels, VP's product line includes synthetic oils, 2-cycle lubricants, performance chemicals and traction compounds - each designed to produce the most power and best performance in their respective racing applications.
