INDIANA CORN MARKETING COUNCIL TO HOST EVENT AT FAMILY EXPRESS VALPO VIKING FUEL STATION

Indiana drivers interested in learning why ethanol is the clear choice invited to stop by for coupons and giveaways

Indiana-grown and Indiana-processed ethanol is a renewable fuel that benefits Indiana’s economy. With approximately one-third of the state crop converted into ethanol, it’s clear that Indiana corn is benefiting from a new market. Indiana’s corn farmers believe that Indiana drivers should be benefitting too.

The Indiana Corn Marketing Council (ICMC) is dedicated to showing Indiana drivers that ethanol-blended fuels – like unleaded e15 and e85 – are safe and readily-available choices at the pump.

Join the ICMC team along with the Richard Childress Racing (RCR) No. 3 American Ethanol show car to fill up and learn how ethanol-blended fuels produce at least 20 percent less greenhouse gas emissions, improve engine performance, increase octane levels, all at a lower cost per gallon than non-blended gasoline. Austin Dillion will be driving the historic RCR No. 3 American Ethanol car in the Brickyard 400 on Sunday, July 23.

WHO:

  • Ken Parrent, Director of Biofuels, ICMC
  • ICMC representatives
  • Family Express representatives
  • Local Indiana corn farmers
  • Richard Childress Racing (RCR) No. 3 American Ethanol show car

WHAT: Family Express Valpo Viking fuel station, ‘GET PUMPED!’ event
