INDIANAPOLIS (July 7, 2020) – Sunoco will now fuel the next generation of open-wheel racers as the Official Fuel of the Formula 4 United States Championship and Formula Regional Americas Championship. The newly struck deal between Sunoco Race Fuels and SCCA Pro Racing was overseen by motorsports marketing agency Drive Motorsports International.
More high-performance racing engines rely on Sunoco race fuels than all others combined. For more than 50 years, Sunoco has been fueling the top race car drivers around the world with high-quality, performance fuels they can trust to power them to the checkered flag. Since its partnership with NASCAR in 2004, Sunoco has fueled more than 15.5 million miles of competition and more than 1,300 victories.
“Sunoco Race Fuels is proud to partner with SCCA Pro Racing to fuel F4 U.S. and FR Americas; we know everyone is excited to get back to racing this year, and so are we,” said Sunoco Race Fuels Sales Coordinator Deanna Manbeck. “Sunoco believes that grass roots racing is the foundation to all racing, and we know that FR Americas and F4 U.S. will do a great job of growing the sport.”
Both series’ cars are powered by equally strong, reliable, HPD-modified versions of the current Honda Civic® Type R® engine, with the FR Americas powered by a turbocharged 303-horsepower edition using 100 octane Sunoco fuel, while F4 U.S. uses a normally aspirated 160-bhp engine with 93 octane Sunoco fuel that can be purchased at all Sunoco fueling stations.
Several tracks on the F4 U.S. and FR Americas schedule feature stops at Sunoco supported circuits, including Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course, VIRginia International Raceway, Sebring, Homestead Miami Speedway and Circuit of The Americas.
“SCCA Pro Racing is excited partner with Sunoco as the Official Fuel of the F4 U.S. and FR Americas Championships,” said SCCA Pro Racing General Manager Sydney Davis Yagel. “Drive Motorsports International assisted with the terms, which made negotiating seamless.”
The agreement will extend through December 2020. At that time Parella Motorsports Holding, the new commercial promotion owner of both championships starting in 2021, will strike a new agreement with Sunoco Race Fuels. PMH also owns the Sunoco fueled Sportscar Vintage Racing Association and Trans Am Series.
