Going Cross Country

Chuck Zimmerman

ASHTO 50 Year CelebrationIf you liked our coverage from the Indianapolis 500 then perhaps you’ll be interested in some other events coming up that I’ll be blogging from.

First of all, there’s the 50 year celebration of our national interstate system. I will be driving one of the vehicles in the convoy that will be commemorating the 50th anniversary of the federal law that brought the Interstate Highway System to America. The trip begins June 16 in San Francisco and ends June 29 in Washington, DC. You can see the full schedule here. I’ll be writing each day, including interviews and pictures as I find them and I know there will be a lot. My involvement with the trip is being sponsored by the Ethanol Promotion and Information Council. In fact, I’ll be driving a truck that will be wrapped with their logo. You can see a current list of the sponsoring organizations for the whole event here.

Kansas Lottery Indy 300It looks like I’ll fly from the closing ceremonies of the Interstate event to Kansas City for the Kansas Lottery Indy 300. This is one of the races on the Indy Racing League Schedule and it will be nice to get in a little more race action.

So those are a couple of events on the agenda. I’m really excited about the cross country trip. I’ll be meeting lots of people and learning about their perspectives on alternative fuels which I’ll report for you right here.
