American Ethanol and Propel Attend NASCAR Sonoma

Propel was ecstatic when our friends at American Ethanol invited us to attend the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race at Sonoma Raceway in June. A proud supporter of both America’s heartland and the addictive sport of stock car racing, American Ethanol is a non-profit organization that is teamed up with NASCAR to increase education and awareness around ethanol as a cleaner, greener, American-made transportation fuel. For the 2012 season, all cars competing in NASCAR run on E15, a blend of 15% ethanol and 85% gasoline that is gaining more traction with individual drivers and consumers across the nation thanks to its widespread compatibility, cleaner emissions, reduced petroleum content and support of American jobs.

Once at the races, American Ethanol Sponsorship Manager Carrie Emert and Growth Energy VP Kelly Manning surprised Propel with a behind-the-scenes tour of the garages, a one-on-one chat with RCR pit crew member Aaron Schields—who grew up on a corn farm and now holds one of the most important jobs in the sport!—and the once in a lifetime chance to present the American Ethanol Special Award to driver Greg Biffle during Opening Ceremonies.

Big thanks to American Ethanol for hosting such a unique day at the track and for all your support spreading the word about the benefits of ethanol. We had a great time!
