New Ad Campaign Shows Biodiesel on the Fast Track

John Davis

For years, the folks at the National Biodiesel Board have been emphasizing how their green fuel is on the fast track to more jobs and American energy independence. Now, in a new web and television campaign, they’re also talking about how biodiesel is also part of the literal fast track of vehicle land speed records. Check it out:

The ad features the roar of a stock Ford SuperDuty™ diesel truck running on 20 percent biodiesel driven by Oklahoma soybean farmer and land speed record holder Brent Hajek. He set the record at 182 miles an hour… truly showing just how good biodiesel performs. But, the high performance is no surprise to out friends at NBB:

“A billion gallons. That’s how much imported diesel biodiesel replaced last year,” said Joe Jobe, CEO of the National Biodiesel Board. “This is not just an idea. Biodiesel is working today to meet renewable fuel demands, and we can do more.”

“This ad campaign tells people that advanced biofuel is here now,” said Jobe. “Biodiesel creates jobs, is better for the environment, and supports energy security. AND it breaks land speed records too. There’s no doubt this is a great alternative fuel success story.”

You’ll see the ads debut on television on this coming Sunday morning’s network news public affairs shows. You can also check out the ads now at
