D&D Signs on With VP Racing Fuels

Bringing retail brand program to major distributor in Southeast

Published in CSP Daily News

PEACHTREE CITY, Ga. -- D&D Energy Group Inc., a major Sunoco distributor in the southeastern United States has signed on as the newest retail partner of VP Racing Fuels.

Operating in Georgia, Florida, Alabama, Tennessee, North Carolina, South Carolina and Virginia, D&D services 110 branded Sunoco sites, 10 Coastal, four Gulf and 20 unbranded Pacecar Express sites.

"We're excited to become a VP distributor for several reasons," said Dean Dorminey, president of D&D, Peachtree City, Ga. "VP's credit-card rates are a big plus to save our dealers money, and the program allows us to seek unbranded supply for our stores at a competitive price. It's also nice to bring additional profit centers to our dealers with VP's race fuel, specialty fuels and fuel additives. It's a bonus to deal with a private company that can make decisions on a timely basis."

"In our first conversations with Dean, he alluded to how so many of his dealers asked him about VP that he felt compelled to check us out," said Alan Cerwick, president of VP Racing Fuels. "As soon as he did, the competitive advantages of our program became immediately clear. Given D&D's unique situation--one of Sunoco's largest distributors, their own PaceCar Express brand and everything else they have going for them--it speaks volumes that they recognized in VP a brand that offers things they can't get from anyone else, and something they can't build themselves. We're very happy to have them become part of the VP Racing Fuels family."

VP Racing Fuels, Elmendorf, Texas, is a leader in race fuel technology, fueling participants every form of motorsports on land, sea and air since 1975. VP is the official racing fuel of NHRA Championship Drag Racing, Tudor United SportsCar Championship, World of Outlaws Sprint Cars and Rally America, among more than 60 VP-sponsored racing organizations.
