Sunoco Race Fuels and the Australian National Drag Racing Association are proud to announce a partnership between the two organisations which will see Sunoco as the official fuel supplier for all ANDRA-sanctioned events.

Sunoco Race Fuels has been associated with racing excellence for decades, and today has a reach around the world which covers all types of professional motor sports and other activities where premium race fuels make a difference. It is the largest manufacturer of racing gasolines in the world, with a 60-year track record of winning performances.

Under the partnership, the top qualifier for Super Stock/SuperComp at each round of the 2018/2019 Summit Racing Equipment Sportsman Series will be known as the Sunoco 260GT Plus Top Qualifier, and if they are running Sunoco 260GT Plus fuel in their car, will receive a cash prize of $1000.

Other benefits of the partnership include each of the 11 Summit Racing Equipment Sportsman Series championship winners receiving a $1000 Sunoco racing fuels voucher.

Sunoco Race Fuels has also committed to a contingency programme for competitors in the Summit Racing Equipment Sportsman Series; with winners and runners-up in the respective categories who are showing the appropriate Sunoco signage and are able to provide a proof of purchase able to claim $300 for a win and $100 for a runner-up.

“With an expanded product line, Sunoco today offers more choices than ever before,” Sunoco Race Fuels National Product Manager, Aaron Brookes, said.

“With the Federal Government’s ban on leaded racing fuels approaching, Sunoco has overhauled our program in Australia – our people are working with local engine builders and tuners to develop racing fuels that will meet all of the needs of ANDRA racers.

A number of other exciting changes are also underway for Sunoco in Australia, explained Aaron.

“We have worked hard to reduce the price of Sunoco E85-R, which is a premium race blend ethanol mixed with 104 octane race fuel. We are also bringing back the USA-made Sunoco Racing Methanol at a competitive price, and will be introducing Sunoco Nitromethane to the market,” Aaron said.

“At the same time, we are reworking our dealer program and introducing a new engine builder program, all to help racers and engine builders/tuners with the upcoming transition.

“We are very excited about what is coming, and to be a part of the Australian drag racing landscape as ANDRA’s official fuel supplier.”

ANDRA General Manager Brett Stevens said the Association was pleased to be able to partner with Sunoco fuels.

“Sunoco Racing Fuels is undeniably an industry leader and we are very proud to be able to partner with them as the ANDRA official fuel supplier,” Brett said.

“With the upcoming transition to unleaded fuels, in our opinion ANDRA and Australia’s drag racers could not have a better partner by our side than Sunoco.”
