According to FOX News, NASCAR will make the move to E15 beginning at the first race in 2011.
Hendrick Motorsports is already testing the fuel and Roush Yates engines will start development with E15 in the next few weeks. According to RYE co-owner Doug Yates, the conversion is important to the sport.
