SAN ANTONIO, TX – VP Racing Fuels today announced that Regional Manager Jim Kelly will retire from the company effective May 31, 2015. Kelly has been a dedicated employee of VP Racing Fuels since 1986, after spending many years as a motorsports writer/photographer and columnist.
“Motorsports and business development have been passions of mine for many years. Working at VP for almost 30 years has given me the opportunity to do what I love and at the same time to contribute to the significant growth and success of VP not just in the Northeast but also in Europe. My first passion, after my wife and children, though, has always been creative writing. I’ve been doing it since I was in grade school when I was first published. I’ve just finished my first book, a work of fiction that has nothing to do with racing, and this transition from working full time at VP will allow me to fully devote my efforts to its promotion and to further pursue other opportunities in motorsports.”
