Race ads promote corn, food and fuel

During the broadcast of the Iowa Corn Indy 250 race this past weekend, many advertisements focused on corn and ethanol -- and were sponsored by the Midwest Corn Growers, a group of seven state corn groups plus the National Corn Growers Association.

Dan Wheldon won the race, but really, we all win since clean burning renewable corn ethanol is the fuel of choice for the Indy Racing League. That's right, the same ethanol that can power your car is powering this highly tuned racing machines!

In the Iowa Corn Indy 250 ad below, can you spot the Nebraska corn grower, who also happens to be a member of the Nebraska Corn Board?
