American Ethanol E15 will serve as the entitlement sponsor for the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series event at the Chicagoland Speedway on Friday, Sept. 18. With the help from Growth Energy and the Illinois Corn Marketing Board, the entitlement sponsorship will highlight just one of three exciting races that weekend.

“As we kick off our Chase for the NASCAR Sprint Cup weekend, we are thrilled to welcome a partner as involved in the sport as American Ethanol,” said Scott Paddock, president of Chicagoland Speedway in a release. “Their commitment to reducing emissions through the cleaner burning ethanol fuel has been a vital part of NASCAR’s Green Clean Air initiative. American Ethanol has proven to be a tremendous partner not only for Chicagoland Speedway, but for NASCAR’s teams, fans and the industry as a whole.”

The American Ethanol has been highlighted at other tracks all across the country. Most notably would be at the Iowa Speedway and other Xfinity and Camping World Truck series races.

Growth Energy is excited for the partnership with the 1.5-mile oval and Illinois Corn Growers.

“Growth Energy is thrilled to sponsor the American Ethanol 225 and work in conjunction with Chicagoland Speedway and Illinois family corn growers to promote a homegrown, American fuel,” stated Tom Buis, CEO of Growth Energy in a release. “The drivers at Chicagoland Speedway and across the nation rely on E15 for superior horsepower and performance, and as they will tell you, it delivers.”

The company will utilize the sponsorship as a way to show retailers the importance of the American Ethanol brand in the world of NASCAR.

“It’s great to see American Ethanol E15 take center stage again here in Illinois where our family farmers are busy growing the corn that powers NASCAR,” said Lou Lamoreux, chairman of the Illinois Corn Marketing Board (ICMB) in a release. ICMB is partnering with Growth Energy for this race. “We’re excited to share the racing experience with our retail partners here in Illinois that are bringing the power and performance of ethanol to their customers who fill up their personal vehicles with E15 or other higher blends of ethanol.”

Do these companies have any Board of Directors? Spending the money to sponsor a truck race is nuts. Nobody is watching! They would get as much viewer exposure putting advertisements on the BOTTOMS of Busses.
