SAN ANTONIO, TX (April 24, 2006) — VP Racing Fuels, Inc. today announced it has been named “Official Racing Fuel” of the 2006 AMA/WMA National Championship, as well as “Official Racing Fuel” of the Z1R Helmets Women’s Motocross Association (WMA) Cup. “We’re excited about our sponsorship with WMA,” said Bruce Hendel, VP’s Global Sales Manager. “VP has long supported women’s participation in motocross. In fact, Cycle Ranch, a motocross track owned and operated here in Texas by VP’s founder, Steve Burns, hosted the USA Team Motocross/WMA Cup and the Pro-Am Open/Pro WMA Cup just this past fall and is scheduled to host it again this coming November.”
“VP’s fuels have been long-time favorites among WMA competitors,” Hendel continued. “We anticipate the WMA organization will continue to see substantial growth and this represents a great opportunity to market our fuels to its members. We’re confident the teams will enjoy the increased horsepower and extra torque offered by VP’s U4, U2, MRX01 and other fuels.”
“We are very pleased to have VP Racing as a sponsor of the Hitachi AMA/WMA National Motocross Championship and the Z1R Helmets WMA Cup,” said Miki Keller, WMA’s CEO. “VP has such a strong heritage in racing, we are fortunate to have them help facilitate the growth of our series. All racers (male and female) can appreciate the advantage of using VP Fuel”.
