SAN ANTONIO, Texas -- VP Racing Fuels has announced an extension of its official fuel sponsorship with the AMSOIL AMA Grand National Cross Country Series presented by Maxxis (GNCC) and Mtn. Dew ATV Motocross National Championship Series (ATVMX) through 2016.

"The two series pit riders against some of the most treacherous terrain for up to three hours at a time, making a consistent top quality fuel crucial to success. This is a strong factor in the series' desire to continue its relationship with VP," said GNCC Racing Event Director Tim Cotter.

"We are extremely happy to have VP Racing Fuels continue its commitment to our GNCC and ATVMX series and our racing families," Cotter said. "The VP brand is synonymous with racing and is a great fit for the series."

"GNCC and ATVMX are the nation's premier off-road and motocross racing series, and we really appreciate our partnership," said Steve Scheidker, director of marketing for VP. "They provide the perfect venue to promote our full range of fuels. With T4, U4, 4, MR12 and more, we have blends for every level from amateur to pro, along with a full-time tech support staff just a phone call or email away to help riders with fuel selection and tuning."

Big Daddy Motorsports will continue to be VP's representative at the events.

Stan Digby of Big Daddy said, "I know riders will appreciate VP's superior power, torque and throttle response and I look forward to providing them great trackside service. As a long-time customer of VP, I'm proud to support a series like GNCC with quality products."
