Indy 500 Race Week

Chuck Zimmerman

2007 Indy Ethanol SummitIt’s race week in Indianapolis and that means working with the Ethanol Promotion and Information Council once again since this will be the first Indy 500 with all the cars running on 100% ethanol fuel. There are lots of activities planned to promote ethanol this week. In fact they’ve already started. I’ll be covering as many of them as I can and this year I have some help. More on that later.

One of the main events takes place this Thursday. It’s the Ethanol Summit which will take place at the race track.

Learn more about the benefits of Ethanol and its use as the official fuel in this year’s 91st Running of the Indianapolis 500. A variety of ethanol industry leaders will be on hand to speak about a wide range of ethanol issues, from performance, environmental and economic benefits, to E85 initiatives, growing consumer demand and the renaissance of rural America. Speakers include:

Jeff Simmons # 17 Team Ethanol Driver
Will Steger, Will Steger Foundation
Tom Slunecka, Ethanol Promotion and Information Council (EPIC)
Terry Angstadt, President IndyCar Series
Jim Gentry, Gas America
Thomas Dorr, Under Secretary for Rural Development
Dave Vander Griend, ICM, Inc.

We’re going to have all the sights and sounds we can post so stay tuned to Domestic Fuel from Indy town.
