Remains Official Race Fuel of JEGS/CRA All-Stars Tour
Champion Racing Association and Sunoco Race Fuels officials have announced that Sunoco Race Fuels has agreed to be the Official Spec Race Fuel of the ARCA/CRA Super Series and the Official Race Fuel of the JEGS/CRA All-Stars Tour Presented by GM Performance Parts for the upcoming 2012 season. This will be the second straight season that Sunoco Race Fuels has come back as 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 GM Performance Parts again in 2012," 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 2012 season. Each competitor will be required to run only the Sunoco Standard 110 Octane at every series event on the 2012 schedule, starting with the point’s season opening event at Anderson Speedway on April 14th. Teams will also be required to purchase a minimum of 10 gallons of Sunoco Standard 110 Octane at every series event from the hosting race track or from Corrigan Oil Company who will have fuel available at every series event when the track does not sell Sunoco Standard 110 Octane. Corrigan Oil Company will also work with teams who want to purchase fuel by the drum for the season. Teams interested in purchasing Sunoco Standard 110 Octane by the drum can contact Matt Miller with Corrigan Oil Company at 810-986-5510.
"Going to Sunoco Standard 110 Octane as our spec race fuel with the ARCA/CRA Super Series will make it cut and dry with enforcing our race fuel specifications," remarked Eddie Chew, Tech Director for CRA. "Having one fuel will eliminate 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 will help CRA make sure that everyone is competing on a level playing field when it comes to race fuel."
Sunoco has teamed up with Joe Gibbs Racing to launch the Sunoco Driven Challenge for the 2012 season. Five of the top Template Asphalt Late Model Series in the country were chosen, including the ARCA/CRA Super Series, for a chance for one driver to earn a test in a Joe Gibbs NASCAR K & N Pro Series car following the 2012 season. All expenses for the test will be included. Runner –up prizes will also be awarded. Series race fans will also have the opportunity to receive prizes with the contest. Several ARCA/CRA Super Series competitors have already registered, teams can go to www.racegas.com to register for the Sunoco Driven Challenge. Contest details and weekly standings of the Sunoco Driven Challenge will also be available at that web site along with more information about Sunoco Race Fuels.
"We greatly appreciate Sunoco Race Fuels coming back on board to support CRA in 2012," remarked R.J. Scott, Managing Partner with CRA. "The Sunoco name has always stood for quality products that racers can always depend on. The Sunoco Driven Challenge is a great opportunity for one of our racers to possibly get a chance to prove their skills under the watchful eyes of a NASCAR Sprint Cup Team owner!"

Series teams will be required to purchase a minimum of 10 gallons of Sunoco Standard 110 Octane at any track hosting an event in 2012 that sells Sunoco Race Fuels or if it is an event serviced by Corrigan Oil Company.
