E15 is a high-performance fuel containing 15 percent ethanol, made from crops grown in our nation’s heartland. It’s approved for nine out of 10 cars on the road, can save motorists an average of five to 10 cents per gallon, and contains more octane than standard gasoline.

That’s why, after extensive testing, NASCAR adopted this fuel for use in all three of their national racing series. Since 2011, NASCAR has surpassed 10 million competition miles on Sunoco Green E15, a fuel blended with 15 percent American ethanol. Race teams and engine builders have reported high praise for the blend, which boosts horsepower while reducing emissions.

10 million miles equates to 402 laps around the earth

According to Austin Dillon, American Ethanol NASCAR #3 Driver, RCR Racing: “I think the best thing about American Ethanol is we can prove the performance on the track. That’s why it relates so well to what we’re doing here in NASCAR. We’re putting a lot of miles on it. Hard miles. Durable miles. When you can go out and run in a race car, there’s no doubt it will be a proven product in a street car.”

NASCAR and American Ethanol are natural partners: NASCAR is a great American sport founded by the France family on the sands of Daytona Beach more than 60 years ago, and American Ethanol is produced on family-owned farms across our country’s heartland. It’s truly a winning combination that is fueling savings and performance on- and off-the-track.
