SAN ANTONIO -- VP Racing Fuels Inc. has announced a partnership with American Marketing & Motorsport Group Inc. (AMG), to promote VP-branded apparel, promotional items and novelties. As part of the program, a new e-commerce site at www.VPPerformanceGear.com serves as a one-stop shop for purchase of an expanded line of hats, t-shirts, jackets and more.

The partnership also calls for AMG to staff racing and other events for merchandise sales.

While the new website currently features only apparel; the company said it will expand the apparel line and add other VP-branded items and novelties.

"We're excited to partner with AMG and expect they'll be instrumental in building VP's brand awareness and facilitating all needs concerning apparel and novelties," said Dennis Stanko, VP's director of consumer sales. "This partnership will provide important support not only for VP's expanding consumer product lines but our retail branding program as well."

AMG's auto racing programs have included NASCAR Sprint Cup Series, Nationwide Series, ARCA, Camping World West Series, World of Outlaws DIRTcar events and IndyCar. AMG also has executed programs for the National Football League, Major League Baseball and college football.
