In recognition of our veterans and the sacrifices they have made in service to our country, Growth Energy salutes the men and women of the United States armed forces. We are proud that 19 percent of the ethanol industry’s workforce is comprised of military veterans, and the entire industry takes pride in producing homegrown biofuels. In observance of Veterans Day, we would like to thank all of the brave men and women of the U.S. Armed Forces who protect our freedoms, values, and rights.
To show our gratitude, Growth Energy has made veterans a core part of our American Ethanol racing program. We host veterans and active duty servicemembers from our member companies and their families at Daytona International Speedway over the Independence Day weekend. This weekend was part of NASCAR Salutes, a portion of season devoted to honoring the U.S. military. As in the biofuels industry, the spirit of patriotism runs deeply throughout NASCAR, and hosting vets and their families at the track is one small way that we can say thank you to all who have served.
We encourage you to watch this year’s Daytona Veterans video below to learn more about this salute to those who selflessly serve and protect our great nation.

Biofuels offer a clear path to reducing greenhouse gas emissions while driving economic growth & creating jobs in #MN02. I introduced a bill to increase biofuel blending while pushing back on small refinery waivers, which are nothing but a handout to big oil. #MNFarmfest
The Dept of @ENERGY recommending even partial gap year waivers to big oil is an affront to the 10th circuit court ruling and another blow to the #RFS. The @EPA must now follow the court’s ruling and deny ALL gap year waiver requests. https://t.co/8EgslvY0vF
