On The Track Or At Your Corner Station, Ethanol Fuels Offer High Octane Performance

In the auto racing world, ethanol fuels have become widely accepted as one of the best ways to get optimum performance on the track. NASCAR has been using E15 for several years and Indy-style racers use E85. Ethanol is also a popular choice for racers on the small tracks, both paved and dirt, which can be found throughout rural Minnesota.

Fiesta Speedway, at the Chippewa County Fairgrounds in Montevideo, and Viking Speedway, located at the Douglas County Fairgrounds in Alexandria, are both good examples. The tracks host events featuring a number of classes of race cars:  WISSOTA Late Models, WISSOTA Modifieds, WISSOTA Midwest Mods, WISSOTA Street Stocks, WISSOTA Super Stocks, and Pure Stocks.

Local corn and soybean growers from Chippewa county will be gathering at the Fiesta Speedway on
Friday, July 20 for a special "Jam the Stands" evening at the races. Similarly, Douglas, Pope, Todd and Stearns counties will join together at Viking Speedway on Saturday, July 28 for their “Jam the Stands” event. The county corn and soybean growers recognize racing fans as a great audience to connect with about the benefits of ethanol blended fuels, so all grandstand tickets are free that evening, and will include information on the renewable fuel.

Both "Jam the Stands" events in Montevideo and in Alexandria are also connected with a biofuel promotion. Before the racing even begins, fuel stations in Clara City, Montevideo, and Alexandria will be discounting their biofuels, making them even less expensive than they already are compared to regular petroleum-based fuels.

Cleaner-burning fuels like E85 and E15 not only offer higher octane power on the racetrack, they can also be used by many vehicles on the road today, maybe even yours!
