The Iowa Corn Growers just held a press conference here at the Iowa Speedway to unveil the trophy for Sunday’s Iowa Corn Indy 250. It’s a tall good looking trophy.

Here’s some of the reasons why the Iowa Corn Growers is involved and supporting this inaugural race:
• Promote renewable fuels
• Give general consumers information about ethanol, specifically E85 market
• Indy Racing League (IRL) is running on 100% ethanol in the 2007 season
• Celebrating 30 years of the Iowa corn checkoff and the success of the ethanol industry we’ve worked so hard to build in the state.
• Iowa is the leader in corn and ethanol production and we are working to be the leader in renewable fuel usage.
