For the eighth time this season American Ethanol has gone to Victory Lane.
In 2010 NASCAR and American Ethanol agreed to deal to use E-15 in all three of NASCAR’s series.
“It is the first year and from the word go it has been good,” said Clint Bowyer who finished second in the Aaron’s 499 on Sunday. “The engine guys went to work as soon as we heard about it. We saw a horse power increase and as a race car driver that is exciting. It took little effort to make this work. This is something that took years and years of research to make happen. It opens the door for so many opportunities. It creates over 400,000 jobs.”
