The Frankenstein Engine Dynamics Mid-West Pro Mod Series (MWPMS) is pleased to welcome San Antonio-based VP Racing Fuels as its official fuel supplier for the 2018 racing season. The all-eighth-mile drag racing series staged its first race of the year this past weekend at the Texas Motorplex in Ennis, TX, where VP Racing Fuels had product available to competitors.
"One thing about VP Fuels is that we've always strived to have the best fuels out there and when you look at these guys in the Mid-West Pro Mod Series, especially the nitrous Pro Mods, these guys need top-grade fuels in order to run right and go fast," VP Racing Fuels Midwest Regional Manager Jason Rueckert pointed out. "Being associated with the Mid-West Pro Mod Series allows us to showcase our products in the highest-horsepower, best-of-the-best combinations."
