Dan Schwartzkopf here is VP of Renova Energy and attending the first IRL race of the season. Dan races himself and has been featured here on Domestic Fuel before.
I ran into Dan at the Rahal-Letterman hospitality tent and interviewed him to see what he thinks about how things are going with ethanol promotion and the IRL. He includes his sentiments about how many of us are keeping Paul Dana and his family in our thoughts today. Paul was killed just prior to the start of today’s XM Satellite Radio Indy 300 last year on this track.
Dan does point out that you won’t hear him say anything negative about ethanol and he sure doesn’t. You won’t find a bigger champion and supporter for the industry.

Note from Cindy: Something both Chuck and Dan failed to mention here is that the plant Dan manages, Renova Energy in Torrington, Wyo., is the exclusive supplier of ethanol for the entire IndyCar Series this season.
