RCR racer Austin Dillon will debut the new “Get Bioethanol” #3 Chevrolet car in Nashville Superspeedway this weekend, showcasing the performance benefits of racing with earth kind and engine smart bioethanol blended fuel, Sunoco Green E15.
“People are looking for simple lifestyle changes to help the planet, and one way is to switch to a higher blend of bioethanol. We are excited to debut the new Get Bioethanol car with NASCAR, a move that allows us to showcase our global commitment to bettering the environment,” said Growth Energy CEO Emily Skor.
The race will take place on Sunday, June 20th at 2:30 PM CT at Nashville Superspeedway. Catch it live on Fox Sports.
What is bioethanol?
“Bioethanol” is another commonly used term for “ethanol”, particularly embraced by the global audience. Same plant-based, low carbon fuel – different name. The NASCAR fleet will still run on a fifteen percent bioethanol blend, Sonoco Green E15.
What happened to American Ethanol?
For years, Dillon raced under the American Ethanol banner. The new “Get Bioethanol” brand allows us to quickly convey ethanol’s environmental attributes to a global audience and draw attention to NASCAR Green’s efforts to minimize the sport’s environmental impact. It goes hand-in-hand with our consumer initiative, Get Biofuel, that will launch nationally this fall. You can learn more at GetBiofuel.com.
