The pay it forward statewide pump promotions are a way to celebrate the IZOD IndyCar shift to E85, a fuel that Iowans can find at more than 170 flex fuel pumps across the state. Plus, Iowa Corn is partnering with Marco Andretti and Andretti Autosport™ in advance of the 2012 Iowa Corn Indy 250 race that will be held on Saturday, June 23 at the Iowa Speedway in Newton.
“It’s an awesome track and an awesome event,” said Marco Andretti. “Last year, I started 17th and was able to work my way to the front, which was a lot of fun. This year, we have one goal at Iowa: win again. This time, we’ll do it with the Iowa Corn logo on the No. 26 RC Cola car.”
In 2012, the Series will be showcasing E-85 at top-notch speeds and at professional venues across the world.
