Ethanol Baby

Cindy Zimmerman

Baby EthanolThere were lots of babies at the 2008 Commodity Classic but this one really caught our attention.

Her name is Danica – after Indy race car driver Danica Patrick – and her little onesie featured the IRL logo on the front and on back it said the “Smell of Ethanol.” How cute is that! Her parents were letting her pose on top of the ethanol display in the Pioneer booth, prompting oohs and ahs from the passers-by.

Attendance at this year’s Commodity Classic in Music City was record-breaking, according to the final numbers:

4,534 Total Registration (record)
145 Total Media (record)
847 Trade Show Booths (record)
