NEWARK, Del. - VP Racing Fuels Inc. has hired Steve LeSueur, a fixture on the NHRA national tour for more than 30 years, as the newest addition to the VP sales team.
LeSueur will be based at VP’s regional distribution center in Newark, Del., 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 said he 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,” he said. “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.”
Steve will team with Freddie Turza from VP’s R&D/Tech Support staff to serve customers. LeSueur can be reached at at 302-685-3119 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
