Prior to the event, the Corn Producers Association of Texas and National Corn Growers Association joined the Ethanol Promotion and Information Council and Indy Racing League to help introduce ethanol to the Dallas area. According to an NCGA release, the groups held an ethanol promotion at a 7-Eleven station, which sold 10 percent ethanol blends (E-10) for $2.20 per gallon, 60 cents off the regular price. IRL drivers Tony Kanaan and Jeff Simmons and other volunteers pumped more than 2,200 gallons of the ethanol-blended fuel in two hours.
