VP Racing Fuels History
VP Racing Fuels was founded in 1975 by Steve Burns, a young drag racer and self-taught chemist with a passion for R&D and a goal of developing fuels to generate more power. Burns’ earliest fuel blends achieved success first in drag racing and later in circle track racing, influencing advancement in engine designs and development along the way.
VP’s foray into the motorcycle market met with similar success. Working with factory motocross and road racing teams to develop custom blends for their applications, VP dominated the field with hundreds of championships in every class of American Motorcycle Association (AMA) Pro Racing, CCS, ASRA and GNCC as well as Motocross des Nations and Isle of Man TT.
VP Racing Fuels is now recognized by many as The World Leader in Race Fuel Technology™ with thousands of championships in virtually every form of motorsports on land, sea and air. With its reputation for outstanding product quality, superior customer service and technical support, VP has been selected as the Official Racing Fuel of more than 60 VP-sponsored tracks and sanctioning bodies.
