NASCAR has run 15 million miles on E15



NASCAR®: Fueled by Sunoco® Green E15™

As a high-octane fuel, ethanol has powered NASCAR for over 15 million super-fast miles. NASCAR engineers choose ethanol for its power and efficiency: two qualities every car needs when rocketing around Texas Motor Speedway at 200 miles per hour. NASCAR runs on Sunoco Green E15, a race fuel blended with 15 percent ethanol, in their three national series.




Austin Wayne Self: Fueled by Sorghum

The Sorghum Checkoff are revved up to sponsor NASCAR rising star and Texas native Austin Wayne Self, who first accelerated into the spotlight with a sorghum sponsorship in 2017, scoring multiple top 10s in his ethanol-powered Chevrolet Silverado.


American Consumers: Fueled by sustainable, high-performance gas

Ethanol isn’t just pumping into those powerful NASCAR V8s. The fuel has fast become an essential source in American transportation. Ethanol is cleaner, more affordable and more efficient than conventional gasoline, and every day it helps our nation move farther from reliance on foreign oil and closer to a crop-based fuel solution.

Sorghum Checkoff: Fueled by building markets for sorghum producers and educating consumers

As the second-largest market for sorghum in the U.S., ethanol and renewable fuels move forward as a steady and important industry for sorghum producers. The Sorghum Checkoff partnership with a NASCAR Gander Outdoors Truck Series (NGOTS) team is part of a large-scale program that continues to drive benefits to sorghum growers by educating consumers on the benefits of ethanol and the role grain sorghum plays in ethanol production and providing increased opportunity for the ethanol industry and sorghum growers in the U.S.


Sorghum Producers: Fueled by a vision for a sustainable future

Sorghum producers remain dedicated to practices that are sustainable and look down the road to the future of farming. Sorghum grows on approximately six million acres in the U.S., with 20-30 percent of the U.S. sorghum crop used to produce ethanol.

Sorghum farmers employ no-till or reduced-till practices on 74 percent of U.S. acres, and nearly 91 percent of U.S. sorghum acres receive no supplemental irrigation water. That’s because sorghum is a drought-tolerant crop that uses one-third less water than other crops, making it particularly well-suited to power through the arid environment of Texas.
