Podcast: Corn ethanol, NASCAR a great partnership, opportunity

In this podcast, Randy Uhrmacher, a farmer from Juniata and member of the Nebraska Corn Growers Association, provides a report American Ethanol and NASCAR.

Uhrmacher, along with Jon Holzfaster, a farmer from Paxton and member of the Nebraska Corn Board, were in Las Vegas when the American Ethanol partnership with NASCAR was announced.

The partnership comes after NASCAR said in October it would take its environmental commitment to the next level in 2011 by fueling all races in its three racing series with E15, a 15 percent corn ethanol blend. That means every race in the Sprint, Nationwide and Camping World truck series will be powered by a 15 percent corn ethanol blend.

"This is a tremendous opportunity for the ethanol industry," Uhrmacher said. "NASCAR is very effective at marketing and promoting its partners. It will put a positive image of ethanol in front of millions of people every week. It lets us talk about the benefits of ethanol, to explain how it is clean, green, renewable and American made."

"It is exciting as a farmer in Nebraska to know that we’re helping promote corn-based ethanol to such a big audience," he said.
