When asked during the post-race press conference about NASCAR using 15% ethanol fuel this year, Keselowski said he applauded NASCAR for its green initiative. “It’s just an added benefit that (ethanol) comes from America,” he said. “That’s really cool.”
Fuel saving was what won the race for Keselowski and crew chief Paul Wolfe says he’s seen no change in performance since the series switched to 15% ethanol this year. “Seemed to be a pretty good fuel for us today,” he said.
Team owner Roger Penske is pleased with the NASCAR move to ethanol. “The reliability is there, the fuel mileage is there and you can see the performance, so I think it’s a win-win for everyone,” said Penske.
