Sept. 27: American Ethanol will tackle the Monster Mile in Dover, Del., this weekend, both on track and with its 10th major activation of the NASCAR® season.
More than 100,000 fans are expected to visit the one-mile concrete track, dominated by Miles the Monster, during the three race events including: the K&N Pro East “Drive Sober 150” Sept. 27; the NASCAR Nationwide Series 5-Hour Energy 200 Sept. 28; and the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series AAA 400 on Sept. 29.
American Ethanol spokesman Austin Dillon, driver of the #3 car finished in second place in last week’s race in Kentucky, bringing him within 15 points of moving into first place in the hunt for the NASCAR Nationwide Series 2013 Championship.
NCGA will join American Ethanol Partner Growth Energy in a fan outreach event at the track that will focus on encouraging fans to show their support for Sunoco Green E15 by flying American Ethanol flags throughout the campgrounds and the track infield. Information will be inserted into the packets of 3,000 campers and an exhibit will be set up in the track’s Fan Zone where supporters can learn more about how they can buy the same domestic fuel used by their favorite drivers.
The American Ethanol partnership with NASCAR has resulted in many opportunities and benefits for our members in terms of fan support and changing attitudes toward E15. The heart of the program continues to revolve around the American Ethanol starter flag used at every race, the bright green fuel port on every car in every NASCAR Series, and high-profile NASCAR Green TV commercials that began airing in April.
