NASCAR racing, fueled by ethanol, is being welcomed back to the St. Louis area. The National Corn Growers Association (NCGA) says NASCAR returns to Gateway Motorsports Park with the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series on June 14, 2014.
National Corn Growers Association President Martin Barbre joined track owner Curtis Francois, NASCAR VP of Racing Operations Jim Cassidy, and American Ethanol spokesman and St. Louis native Kenny Wallace for the announcement.
“We have had great success utilizing the American Ethanol brand to educate the NASCAR Nation about the performance, economic and environmental benefits of corn-based ethanol over the last three years.” Barbre said. “This track sits in the heart of corn country so it will provide us another good opportunity to educate the public.”
