NASCAR To Race With E15 Fuel Next Season

[1]NASCAR announced that it will race with Sunoco Green E15 fuel in its three national touring series next season. Sunoco Green E15 is a 15 percent ethanol blend.

NASCAR chairman and CEO Brian France said:

The transition to Sunoco Green E15 takes our long-term sustainability strategy to the next level. Sunoco Green E15 is good for racing, good for the environment and good for America. While fueling the same close, door-to-door racing that thrills our fans, American ethanol creates jobs in the United States, helps foster energy independence, and continues the greening of our sport.

Teams have been testing the new fuel blend for months, and reports have been positive.
