“The growing popularity of Formula DRIFT is remarkable and this partnership presents a great opportunity to help build awareness of VP’s brand and our expanding product lines,” said Chris Wall, VP’s Chief Marketing Officer. “For years, racers have relied on VP blends like C16™ or VP Import™ for the consistency, increased horsepower and torque necessary to satisfy the unique demands that drifting places on fuel, however, for those racers committed to an ethanol blend, we now offer new X85™ and X98™.
