The Green American Ethanol flag will wave during NASCAR races for a sixth consecutive year.
Starting with the Daytona 500, the National Corn Growers Association’s partnership with Growth Energy and NASCAR has enabled E15 American Ethanol to power cars during the NASCAR season. American Ethanol has the honor of being one of only two companies that will be represented on every race car during the season.
Austin Dillon of Richard Childress Racing (RCR) will once again be the American Ethanol driver in the No. 3 car.
“At RCR, we are proud to partner with this American-grown, American-made industry for many reasons,” RCR President Richard Childress said. “Nationwide, moving to E15 will create another 136,000 American jobs that can’t be outsourced, reduce our demand for foreign oil by 7 billion gallons and reduce greenhouse gas emissions relative to regular gasoline, all while saving consumers between 5 and 15 cents per gallon at the pump.”
Six times this season, American Ethanol will have full “paint outs” on Dillon’s entry. Dates for the paint outs are May 7 at Kansas Speedway, July 31 at Pocono Raceway, Sept.4 at Darlington Raceway, Oct. 23 at Talladega Superspeedway and Nov. 13 at Phoenix International Raceway.
