Pocono Raceway is the greenest venue in NASCAR, and maybe in professional sports. But the track will get even more “green” this weekend as Austin Dillon and the American Ethanol #3 car hit the track with an American Ethanol paint out.
You can catch Austin competing in the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series at Pocono’s Tricky Triangle this Sunday for the Overton's 400 at 3 p.m. ET on NBCSN. Although all cars will be racing on E15 American Ethanol, Austin’s car will drive the point home in this, the third, fully marked up car of the 2017 season.
“I love being the renewable fuels guy. The best part is the American part. It’s special to be kind of the leader in that category,” Dillon said.
As Monster Energy Series drivers are getting ready for Sunday’s race, American Ethanol will already be in the spotlight miles away at the NASCAR Xfinity Series in Iowa on Saturday, July 29, in the U.S. Cellular 250 presented by American Ethanol. You can tune in for that race at 3:30 p.m. ET on NBC. Iowa Corn Growers Association will be out in force at the track promoting E15 American Ethanol.
