Officials with VP Racing Fuel Southeast, Inc. today announced sponsorship support for three Florida-based motocross series in the coming weeks. VP has been designated title sponsor of the VP Racing Fuels Florida Gold Cup Series and presenting sponsor of the FMF Florida Winter Am series, presented by VP Racing Fuels, as well as product sponsor of the 41st annual Thor Winter Olympics, presented by Pro Circuit, aka Mini O’s, scheduled Nov 19-24 at Gatorback Cycle Park in Alachua, FL.
As part of the Florida Gold Cup Series and Florida Winter Am Series sponsorships, VP will be the exclusive on-site fuel provider at all events offering T4 and VPR, its newest fuels for stock and modified 4-strokes, as well as C9, C12, U4.4 and other blends.

In addition, VP will give away free race fuel at the end of each round for both the Florida Gold Cup Series and Florida Winter Am Series, as well as on each day of the Mini O’s. Any rider who purchases fuel on-site from VP will be eligible for the give-away.
“This is the 10th consecutive year of working with Wyn and we’re very pleased to be a part of his events,” said Mark Klein, owner of VP Racing Fuel Southeast, Inc. “His races are well attended by riders from all over the country with a wide range of age and skill levels. Since VP offers the perfect fuel solution for every class, it’s a great fit! Plus, this year’s fuel giveaway should provide an exciting alternative to only the top riders collecting all the prizes.”
“We look forward to working with VP. VP Southeast has been a part of our Gold Cup, Mini O’s, and Winter Am series for over a decade now,” said Wyn Kern, President of Unlimited Sports MX.
