Steve Burns, founder, principal owner and Director of Research & Development for VP Racing Fuels, Inc., has reassumed the position of president and CEO, replacing Fred Morrison. Morrison, president of the company since 1985, recently ended employment with VP.
“We truly appreciate Fred Morrison's contribution to VP's growth and development through the years and wish him well,” Burns said. “Prior to Fred's tenure, I served as VP's President and CEO before relinquishing those responsibilities to focus on R&D. I'm excited about becoming involved in the day-to-day operation of the business again, but having said that, I still intend to continue to actively lead VP's R&D efforts.”
It was Burns' development of C12 racing fuel that launched VP in 1975. Today, VP Racing is the official fuel of NHRA Championship Drag Racing, as well as exclusive fuel supplier and/or sponsor of AMA (American Motorcycle Association) Supercross; Champ Car Atlantic; National Muscle Car Association; National Mustang Racing Association ; SKUSA (Superkarts! USA); Star Mazda; and Stars of Karting.
