“We have just finished another strong season with the series,” said Brett Deyo of BD Motorsports Media LLC. “Our racing was competitive, the North Region car counts remained solid and the new South Region was an immediate success.

“We’re proud to once again be aligned with the traditional VP Racing Fuels brand and allow our competitors to reap the benefits of a partnership with the industry leader.”

Marc Wesler, Northeast Regional Manager for VP Racing Fuels, facilitated the agreement.

“I had the opportunity to personally check out the Short Track Super Series first-hand and meet many of the competitors,” Wesler said. “I was very impressed with the series and feel there is a mutual benefit to this agreement for both VP Racing Fuels and the STSS.”

VP Racing Fuels will contribute to the series’ mammoth point fund and racers will enjoy per-race benefits as well, with $150 in product certificates distributed at each event plus other perks.
