Williston, VT — Officials with Rally America, the premier sanctioning body for performance rally racing in the United States, renewed an agreement with VP Racing Fuel of San Antonio, Texas that will extend technical expertise and fuel delivery for Rally America national events through 2016.
The world-renowned racing fuel manufacturer will continue to serve as the “Official Fuel of the Rally America National Championship.” VP Racing Fuel’s Rally Max, MS100 and MS109E racing fuels have been designated the spec fuels for Rally America’s Open Class for 2014.
“I am pleased to continue the VP Racing Fuel relationship,” said Bill Fogg, Sr, CEO of Rally America, Inc. “Our rally teams have benefited from having a level playing field and having consistency in the development of their engines. VP Racing Fuel is a valuable resource in technical expertise and providing fuel at our events located in some of the more remote parts of the country.”
Rally America and VP Racing Fuel’s longstanding relationship began in January 2011 with VP Racing Fuel’s presence at each round of the Rally America National Championship. The rally market proved to be viable and a conversation with various teams initiated to discuss the addition of a spec fuel for the Rally America classes the following year.
VP Racing Fuel will continue to provide the 2014 Rally America National Championship season with fuel delivered at the following national events:
Sno*Drift Rally January 24-25 Atlanta, MI

Working with the teams on the dyno and in the field has been a tremendous experience for our team and we look forward to ‘Makin’ Rally Car Power’ for years to come,” said Jim Kelly, Regional Manager for Eastern NA and Europe.
Both Regional and National rally teams must pre-order VP Rally Max, MS100 or MS109E Racing Fuel from VP’s regional distributors in advance of each round. Pre-order fuel will be delivered to teams at all events during a specified delivery time on the first day of practice.
