CRA and Sunoco Race Fuels Continue Agreement for 2014

Thursday January 2, 2014


Salem, IN (January 2, 2014) – Champion Racing Association Powered by JEGS and Sunoco Race Fuels officials have announced that Sunoco Race Fuels has agreed to continue to be the Official Spec Race Fuel of the ARCA/CRA Super Series Powered by JEGS and the Official Race Fuel of the JEGS/CRA All-Stars Tour Presented by Chevrolet Performance. 2014 will be the fourth straight season that Sunoco Race Fuels has been a supporter of CRA’s top two series.

“Sunoco is extremely pleased to be involved with the ARCA/CRA Super Series and the JEGS/CRA All-Stars Tour Presented by Chevrolet Performance again in 2014,” stated Terry Thompson, Sales Manager, Eastern US and International Sales for Sunoco Performance Products. “The CRA owners and staff have a proven history of providing extremely well run, family entertainment at racing facilities throughout the Midwest. Additionally, they provide grassroots racers with a professionally run, yet affordable, venue to hone their skills and demonstrate their talent. Sunoco has a long history of supporting grassroots racing throughout the world and we are proud to continue to support the CRA organization because of their sterling reputation and commitment to excellence.”

Sunoco Standard 110 Octane will be the Official Spec Race Fuel for the ARCA/CRA Super Series for the 2014 season. Each competitor will be required to run only the Sunoco Standard 110 Octane at every series point’s event on the 2014 schedule, starting with the point’s season opening event at Toledo Speedway on April 12th. Teams will also be required to purchase a minimum of 10 gallons of Sunoco Standard 110 Octane at every series points event from the hosting race track or from the Sunoco Dealer on hand, who will have fuel available at every series event when the track does not sell Sunoco Standard 110 Octane.

“Going to Sunoco Standard 110 Octane as our spec race fuel with the ARCA/CRA Super Series in 2012 has made it cut and dry with enforcing our race fuel specifications,” remarked Eddie Chew, Tech Director for CRA. “Having one fuel has eliminated the ability of teams to try and use performance enhancing additives in their race fuel, which is becoming harder to test for with so many race fuel companies blending their own fuel for teams. Going to Sunoco Standard 110 Octane as the spec race fuel has helped CRA make sure that everyone is competing on a level playing field when it comes to race fuel.”

“We greatly appreciate Sunoco Race Fuels continuing to support CRA,” remarked R.J. Scott, Managing Partner with CRA. “The Sunoco name has always stood for quality products that racers can always depend on. We look forward to working with Sunoco this upcoming season!”

Sunoco Standard 110 Octane will continue to be the Official Race Fuel of the JEGS/CRA All-Stars Tour Presented by Chevrolet Performance for the 2014 season. Series teams will be required to purchase a minimum of 10 gallons of Sunoco Standard 110 Octane at any track hosting an event in 2014 that sells Sunoco Race Fuels or if it is an event serviced by a Sunoco Dealer.
