VP Racing

VP Racing Fuels was founded by Steve Burns, a young racer in San Antonio, Texas. In the early 1970s, Steve was convinced the race fuel manufacturers of the day were falling short of optimum horsepower. Self-taught in chemistry and physics with an aptitude for R&D, he began experimenting with exotic blends of fuel much to the dismay of his parents whose garage served as Steve’s laboratory. Steve began at the local tracks of Texas, where racers tried his fuel and liked the power gains. His first fuel was christened “C12™”. Word spread and Steve’s company was founded VP Racing Fuels in 1974. -
