The Iowa Corn 300 will race into the Iowa Speedway this weekend, July 18th. This will be the 9th year that Iowa Corn has sponsored this event. The race is designed to share the benefits of the renewable fuel industry. The Iowa Corn Growers Association and the Iowa Corn Promotion Board are happy to once again be able to showcase the value of this homegrown, renewable fuel.
“The Iowa Corn 300 continues to be an excellent platform for promoting the benefits of higher blends of ethanol. We encourage all attendees to learn more about the industry and fill up with ethanol on their trip to the race. We are pleased to be able to continue to sponsor such an event and share the benefits of the renewable fuel industry will all race fans,” says Iowa Corn Promotion Board President, Chris Edgington.
This year, the support of the Iowa Corn 300 is crucial to the ethanol industry because of the Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) proposed cuts to the amount of ethanol available to Americans. “Iowa Corn urges all Iowan’s to help keep our choices at the pump and stand up to the EPA. Please take the time to fill out a comment card or go to iowacorn.org to support rural America and corn growers from all around Iowa, “said Jerry Mohr, President of the Iowa Corn Growers Association. Comments are due to the EPA by the July 27th deadline.
