The Kentucky Corn Growers Association worked to promote American
Ethanol with NASCAR fans at the Kentucky Speedway, June 28-30.
NASCAR has been using 15% ethanol to fuel all the vehicles in
its cup series races since February 2011 as part of its NASCAR
Green initiative. The American Ethanol partnership between
NASCAR, the National Corn Growers Association and Growth Energy
works to share the benefits of corn-based ethanol with NASCAR's
75 million fans. Race teams have reported increased horsepower
and cooler-running engines with the fuel switch. Drivers Kenny
Wallace (99 - RAB Racing) and Austin Dillon (3 - RCR Racing) are
sponsored by American Ethanol. Dillon was the winner of Friday's
Nationwide Cup race. Wallace, who is also sponsored by Family
Farmers, placed 11th.
The Kentucky Corn Growers placed this sign on I-71 near the ramp
to Kentucky Speedway.
