Johnny Greaves is a three-time TORC PRO 4WD title holder. He’s won races at every level. And on Sunday, the driver of the Monster Energy/Maxxis Tires Toyota took home his fourth Forest County Potawatomi Community Cup championship after another nail-biter against his son and current class points leader CJ Greaves. CJ added to that points lead earlier in the day at the Big House Brawl at Crandon Off-Road International Raceway with a win over Dad in the PRO 4WD race. Traxxas/Cooper Tire pilot Keegan Kincaid broke out the broom, completing the PRO 2WD sweep at his home track. In PRO Light, after two straight runner-up finishes here, Travis Dinsmore and his Atturo Tires held off a hard-charging Luke Johnson for his first-ever class victory.
SAN ANTONIO, TX – As announced today by VP Racing Fuels, Albuquerque, New Mexico-based Desert Fuels is the newest distributor to partner with VP in its retail branding program. With operations in New Mexico, Arizona, California, Texas, Colorado and Michigan, Desert Fuels services more than 60 retail sites including 11 that it owns and operates, of which six are to be converted to the VP Racing Fuels brand during the program’s initial phase.
A key factor that drew Desert to VP’s program was the brand’s ability to reach new markets, according to Jay Kennedy, Vice President of Asset Management for Desert Fuels. “In evaluating brands that could help us achieve our objectives, it was clear they can all capture traditional commuters and soccer moms, but only VP reaches the race fans and performance enthusiasts that we’ve never successfully reached before. Albuquerque in particular has a strong racing community with the influence of the Unser family, the Unser Museum and lots of racing at local tracks.”
