SAN ANTONIO, TX, October 26, 2016 Known as the “World Leader in Race Fuel Technology™” VP Racing Fuels has leveraged its technological prowess to develop VP Racing Lubricants, a family of fully synthetic professional grade racing oils and high performance synthetic blend oils as well as gear oils, an engine break-in oil and engine assembly lube. As part of VP’s diversification strategy, the lubricant line is a natural fit with its core market according to Richard Glady, VP’s Sales Manager-Lubricants and a 34-year veteran of the lubricant industry.
“We’ve partnered with a leading specialty chemical and additive company to provide unique, cutting edge formulations based on years of experience as well as a select balance of synthetic base stocks designed to VP’s requirements and strict specifications,” said Glady. “I’ve been involved in developing and launching racing and high performance lubricants over the years and can say with confidence VP’s new lubricants offer world class, cutting edge power and wear protection.”
The new lubricants will be distributed via select independent lubricant warehouse distributors, race fuel distributors, lubricant package warehouse distribution companies, performance distributors/dealers and retailers.

New VP Racing Lubricants include:
VP Professional Grade Full Synthetic Racing Oils - designed for professional, semi-pro and high intensity amateur racers for on track applications. They deliver superior durability and friction control and include high levels of ZDDP and a balance of friction and viscosity modifiers to maximize power and protection while lowering operating temperatures. They’re available in SAE 0W-20, SAE 5W-30, SAE 10W-40 and SAE 15W-50.
VP Hi-Performance Synthetic Blend Motor Oils - designed for both on and off road, highly stressed, high performance gasoline engines. They’re well suited for small block race engines and classic, historic, vintage, hot rod, street rod, muscle and other enthusiast applications. With enhanced levels of ZDDP and other anti-wear chemistries, they reduce wear, lower operating temperatures and provide exceptional rust and corrosion protection. Available in SAE 10W-30, SAE 10W-40 and SAE 20W-50.
VP Engine Break-In Oil - a unique multi-viscosity oil formulated with a blend of high quality conventional base stocks, ZDDP, Moly and other additive chemistry to allow a newly machined engine to properly finish seating and mating machine engine parts.
