What better arena to showcase the environmental benefits of American Ethanol than during NASCAR Green Week? Since 2008, NASCAR Green has been collaborating with key stakeholders that care deeply about sustainability. Today, NASCAR Green puts the spotlight on American Ethanol with a video and feature story on the partnership.
Through strategic partnerships, NASCAR and its stakeholders are reducing the sport’s environmental impact, validating green technologies and educating fans. NASCAR Green was launched because it is the right thing to do for our country and the environment. The partners of American Ethanol couldn’t agree more.
The American Ethanol brand represents a shared commitment to sustainability on the part of NCGA, its corn state affiliates and Growth Energy. Collaborative efforts and joint communications among these partners offers a unique opportunity to expand this commitment by bringing awareness of E15’s contribution to cleaner air and its expanded availability to consumers at the retail level.
Upwards of 75 million NASCAR fans each weekend in a season that stretches from February to November are exposed to American Ethanol. These fans are the most loyal of any professional sport. They are three times more likely to try or purchase a sponsor’s products and services because they know it keeps their favorite driver on the track. If NASCAR fans who support using ethanol in their vehicles would switch from E10 to E15, they have the potential to eliminate greenhouse gases created from more than 3.5 billon miles of driving.
