During last Sunday's Hollywood Casino 400 at Kansas Speedway, the American Ethanol No. 3 car was recorded as the fastest on the track. “We had a really fast American Ethanol Chevrolet. I was catching everybody in front of us,” said driver Austin Dillon.
However, speed was not enough to win the race. After holding on to the fifth position for 20 laps, Dillon cut a right front tire and destroyed his No. 3 American Ethanol Chevy on Lap 155.
Even though the No. 3 car didn’t make it into the winner’s circle this race, the performance of NASCAR’s fuel Sunoco Green E15 continues to demonstrate its benefit at the track.
In a Motor Racing Network interview with announcing team Jeff Striegle, Joe Moore and Rusty Wallace, CEO of Kansas Corn Growers Association Greg Krissek told race fans that the American Ethanol - NASCAR partnership has provided a great example for consumers to see E15 in action. Krissek encouraged consumers to look for E15 at gas stations near them. If they don’t see it, ask their gas retailer to look into offering it. There are programs in place to help retailers convert to higher blends of ethanol in gas.
