IndyCar® Series drivers Jeff Simmons (Team Ethanol) and Vitor Meira (Panther Racing), were pumping gas in Kansas City Thursday to promote ethanol. The racers are in town for Sunday’s Kansas Lottery 300 race at Kansas Speedway but they took time out from practice to meet with fans and the media.
Casey’s General Store near the Speedway filled over 200 cars with a record 2969 gallons of E-10 during the promotion sponsored by the Ethanol Promotion and Information Council, or EPIC.

The two drivers and Boerger also took part in a press conference with EPIC Executive Director Tom Slunecka.
