Welcome to race day here at the Iowa Speedway as we near the start of the Iowa Corn Indy 250.
To get things started we had a press conference titled, “Ethanol: Fueling Our Future” which was coordinated by the Iowa Corn Growers Association. On hand were Iowa’s state senators, Chuck Grassley and Tom Harkin, seen here getting interviewed afterward. Also on the program was IA Lt. Governor, Patty Judge, IA Sec. of Ag, Bill Northey, Peter Hemken, DuPont VP, Bob Bowman, ICGA president and Kyle Phillips, ICPB Chairman.
I did not get to attend the conference but thanks to Tim Hoskins, IA Farmer Today, I have the full audio of the press conference for you to listen to. Right now the dignitaries are touring the garages.
Here’s this morning’s press conference: [audio:http://www.zimmcomm.biz/epic/iowa-corn-07-race-press.mp3]
