LeSueur Joins VP Racing Fuels Sales Team

LeSueur(1)VP Racing Fuels, Inc. today announced that Steve LeSueur, a fixture on the NHRA national tour for over 30 years, is the newest addition to its sales team. LeSueur will be based at VP’s Regional Distribution Center in Newark, Delaware with primary responsibility for servicing the Mid-Atlantic region, where he and his family enjoyed great success for many years with their company, World Wide Racing Fuels.

“Steve and I worked side by side, me on the VP rig and Stevie on the World Wide truck, for probably 15 years on the NHRA National and Divisional level,” said Jim Kelly, VP’s Regional Manager for Eastern North America. “He’s a very well known, well respected member of the performance aftermarket business. I’ve wanted Steve as part of the VP team for some time and I’m glad the stars have finally aligned for him to join us.”

LeSueur is looking forward to getting back in contact with the many race teams, engine builders, track operators and sanctioning bodies with whom he worked during nearly 40 years of involvement in race fuels. “This opportunity with VP brings me back to my roots,” said LeSueur, whose family has been involved in East Coast racing since the early ‘50s. “I was involved in race fuels on the East Coast starting in the late ‘70s, when the idea of ‘race fuel’ was in its infancy. I’m excited to be back in a position to help racers make power and go fast.”

“In servicing customers, Steve will team with Freddie Turza from our R&D/Tech Support staff. With their expertise and the strong reputation VP has for making maximum power not just on the dyno but at the track – where it matters most – I anticipate big things from the sales team,” Kelly added.

Anyone wanting to connect with Steve can contact him at 302.685.3119 or [email protected].


VP Racing Fuels is the Official Racing Fuel of NHRA Championship Drag Racing, American Le Mans, AMA Supercross, World of Outlaws Sprint Cars and Late Models, among more than 60 VP-sponsored series and sanctioning bodies.

In addition to racing fuels, VP’s product line includes VP Small Engine Fuel for 2- and 4-cycle portable gas-powered tools and PowerMaster hobby fuels for R/C racing. More information is available online at VPRacingFuels.com.
