VP Racing Fuels continues sponsorship of ET Bracket Series At LOR

BROWNSBURG – VP Racing Fuels will continue their long standing sponsorship of the VP Racing Fuels ET Bracket Series at Lucas Oil Raceway in 2014.  An assortment of VP Racing Fuels will be available to racers for purchase at the track throughout the race season. 

The VP Racing Fuels ET Bracket Series showcases the NHRA Summit Racing Series categories including Super Pro, Pro ET, Sportsman and Super Pro Bike as well as the NHRA Summit Junior Drag Racing League. Junior dragster competition is comprised of two classes, Junior Major and Junior Minor, the latter of which is targeted to younger drivers ages eight and nine years old.

Racers compete in a season-long points program to determine who represents Team Lucas Oil Raceway at the NHRA Summit Series ET Finals at Lucas Oil Raceway, Sept.12 to14. Racers are also competing to win the track championship where they are honored for their accomplishments at the annual Lucas Oil Raceway Awards Banquet. Super Pro, Pro ET, Sportsman and Super Pro Bike class champions will each be awarded a complimentary five-gallon pail of VP Racing Fuel at the Awards Banquet.

Junior Major and Junior Minor racers are also competing in a season-long points program as part of the VP Racing Fuels ET Bracket Series. Like the NHRA Summit Racing Series classes, the Junior Dragster drivers are also contending for track championships. Drivers can represent Team Lucas Oil Raceway in the NHRA Easter Conference Finals at Bristol, Tennessee, July 24 to 26. The top point earners in the 8-9, 10-12, and 13-17-year-old age groups can also represent Lucas Oil Raceway in the Race of Champions at the NHRA North Central Division Jr. Championships at Lyons Raceway Park, Sept. 6 and 7.

“Having personally raced in these programs as a racer myself, I know how important the VP Racing Fuels ET Bracket Series is to our local racers,” said Randy Simpson, General Manager of Lucas Oil Raceway.  “We’re thrilled to have VP Racing Fuels continue their support of the ET Bracket Series.  Sportsman racers are the backbone of NHRA drag racing and we’re excited to welcome them back to Lucas Oil Raceway for the start of the 2014 season.”

The 2014 VP Racing Fuels ET Bracket Series begins April 13. Twelve races are scheduled from April to September.  For information regarding rules and race procedures, visit www.LucasOilRaceway.com or call VP RACING FUELS CONTINUES SPONSORSHIP OF ET BRACKET SERIES AT LUCAS OIL RACEWAY AT INDIANAPOLIS IN 2014294-3170.
