“Earth Day turns people attention to the environment, and it only makes sense to offer an exciting chance to own a collector’s item like the flag today as it serves as an enduring symbol of the great environmental benefits ethanol offers America every day,” said National Corn Growers Association NASCAR Advisory Committee Chair Jon Holzfaster. “Every race day, NASCAR fans are seeing E15’s performance in action and celebrating its benefits to both the sport and the environment. This Earth Day, we can all wave the green flag for American farmers’ work to bring renewable fuels to America’s consumers.”
In 2011, NASCAR entered into a groundbreaking partnership with Sunoco and the American ethanol industry, launching its long-term bio fuels program to reduce emissions of the fuel used across its three national series. The transition to the bio-fuel reduced on-track carbon emissions and teams report an increase in horsepower.
The National Corn Growers Association played an integral role in the formation of the American Ethanol partnership with Growth Energy and continues to support this vital program as a means by which to highlight the performance and environmental benefits of ethanol.
Since transitioning to the bio-fuel blended with 15 percent ethanol, NASCAR has helped validate the fuel’s qualities and the positive environmental impact of ethanol in front of an audience of millions of NASCAR fans, helping shift attitudes and behaviors around the use of renewable, homegrown ethanol.
