As the second round of NASCAR’s championship series begins this weekend, the competition heats up and so does the attention focused on American Ethanol. With E15 American Ethanol featured on the side of every car and on the start/re-start green flag, few sponsors in the sport have this broad exposure. It’s a great place to be to show millions of fans that E15 works.


Only 12 drivers remain eligible and have a shot at winning the Sprint Cup trophy entering the Bank of America 500, which airs at 6 p.m. CT Saturday at Charlotte Motor Speedway. Like the other 32 drivers rounding out the field who are not Chase eligible, American Ethanol driver Austin Dillon continues to drive for his first win of the season.


Dillon, one of the hottest young drivers in the sport, has championships in the Camping World Truck Series and the Xfinity Series. As he closes in on the end of his second Sprint season he is driving to hone his skills and for pride.


With baseball playoffs beginning this week, football underway and hockey starting, you might be wondering how to squeeze in your NASCAR fix. When the action begins this weekend you can turn to NBC, PRN, or SiriusXM NASCAR Radio. You can also go “old school” and use your local radio station and list in on the Motor Racing Network. You can find your local MRN affiliate by clicking here.  This will be the opening race of the Contender Round, and the advancing drivers will see their point totals reset to 3,000, so you won’t want to miss the action, fueled by American Ethanol.
