One week from today the practice night for the 16th annual Wild West Shootout presented by O’Reilly Auto Parts kicks off the miniseries debut at FK Rod Ends Vado Speedway Park.

While the event will be invading new territory, one constant will be the support of VP Racing Fuels. For yet another season the legendary company continues its role as the Official Fuel Sponsor for mega miniseries.

“VP Racing Fuels has been an extremely loyal supporter of the Wild West Shootout for the past several years, and their backing has been a driving factor in the continued growth of the miniseries,” event co-promoter, Chris Kearns commented. “Having them at the track to provide fuel for our racers is also a great asset to the event.”

VP Racing Fuels will be onsite throughout the event with a 53-foot semi-trailer to service all of the fuel needs of the competitors.

From a single location with two employees in San Antonio, Texas, VP has grown to over 200 employees with five company owned and operated race fuel distribution points in Texas, Indiana, Georgia, Delaware and Tennessee, as well as a regional office in southern California. Each of these distribution points maintains inventory of VP fuels available for immediate transport within a day’s drive to virtually any major racing event in North America. The result is that racers and sanctioning bodies can count on access to availability of quality fuel.

VP is now recognized by many as the world leader in race fuel technology, with a catalog of more than 80 fuel blends and a growing roster of VP-fueled champions across the entire spectrum of motorsports.
