Officials at VP Racing Fuels today announced its newest retail branding partner–D&D Energy Group, Inc., the largest Sunoco distributor in the Southeast U.S. Operating in Georgia, Florida, Alabama, Tennessee, North & South Carolina and Virginia, D&D services 110 branded Sunoco sites, ten Coastal, four Gulf, and 20 unbranded Pacecar Express sites.
“We’re excited to become a VP distributor for several reasons,” said Dean Dorminey, President of D&D. “VP’s credit card rates are a big plus to save our dealers money and the program allows us to seek unbranded supply for our stores at a competitive price. It’s also nice to bring additional profit centers to our dealers with VP’s race fuel, specialty fuels and fuel additives. It’s a bonus to deal with a private company that can make decisions on a timely basis.”
“In our first conversations with Dean, he alluded to how so many of his dealers asked him about VP that he felt compelled to check us out,” said Alan Cerwick, President of VP Racing Fuels. “As soon as he did, the competitive advantages of our program became immediately clear. Given D&D’s unique situation—one of Sunoco's largest distributors, their own PaceCar Express brand and everything else they have going for them—it speaks volumes that they recognized in VP a brand that offers things they can’t get from anyone else, and something they can’t build themselves. We’re very happy to have them become part of the VP Racing Fuels family.”
