NASCAR Reaches 6 Million Miles of Racing with American Ethanol
INDIANAPOLIS, IN — For more than three years, NASCAR has run on Sunoco Green E15. On Sunday, drivers raced at the Brickyard in Indianapolis, one of the world’s most historically significant tracks, and reached a fittingly historic milestone—6 million miles of racing on higher blends of ethanol in NASCAR.
American Ethanol is powering NASCAR.
American agriculture’s landmark new partnership with NASCAR® is much more meaningful than any typical sports sponsorship. We have a shared passion for high performance, a stronger America and a cleaner environment.
Led by Growth Energy, more than 100 different entities – from farmers and state corn growing boards to ethanol producers and biotech companies – are working with NASCAR to introduce a cleaner-burning fuel to America. E15 fuels like Sunoco Green E15, which is unleaded gasoline blended with 15% ethanol, will support jobs in America’s heartland.
The transition partnership with American Ethanol takes NASCAR’s environmental commitment to the next level. American Ethanol, a renewable source of cleaner burning energy from the bounty of America’s farmers, helps create new green jobs and a renewed sense of pride for the American worker, while helping to achieve greater energy security for our country.
Starting with the 2011 season, American Ethanol will be an integral partner in NASCAR green efforts, linking millions of American farmers with the sport of NASCAR.
