In addition to the partnership with NASCAR, American Ethanol has entered into a sponsor partnership with Richard Childress Racing and its No. 33 Chevrolet driver Clint Bowyer for the 2011 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series season.

Bowyer will serve as an official spokesman for American Ethanol and American Ethanol will be the primary sponsor of the No. 33 Chevrolet car at the Kansas Speedway 400 and an associate sponsor of the car for the rest of the season.

“Born and raised in the Midwest, it’s truly an honor to support American farmers as they strive to develop energy independence for our country,” said Bowyer. “I look forward to representing American Ethanol both on and off the track beginning this weekend in Daytona.”

Growth Energy CEO Tom Buis said Richard Childress Racing and Bowyer are great additions to the American Ethanol team. “Clint’s from Kansas, and he knows first-hand the opportunities that American farming and American ethanol offer our country – opportunities to create jobs here, clean our air, and strengthen national security by making our nation more energy independent," he said.

Growth Energy led the effort to create American Ethanol, the coalition that signed a partnership agreement with NASCAR to promote the use of domestically-produced ethanol. The National Corn Growers Association also joined American Ethanol, putting farmers in Nebraska and across the country in partnership with ethanol producers and NASCAR.

NASCAR's new fuel - Sunoco Green E15, a 15 percent ethanol blend - makes it's debut at the Daytona 500 this weekend. The race airs at noon locally on FOX.

"Corn farmers have played a big role funding research to make ethanol production more efficient and promoting its many benefits," said Bart Schott, president of the National Corn Growers Association. "Now, it is time to showcase all ethanol has to offer on a national stage."
