The CEO of NASCAR, Brian France cast some doubt as to whether Nascar will be going to an ethanol blend in 2011 at a press conference at the Daytona International Speedway on Friday. FOX News had reported in early May that NASCAR would be going to an E15 ethanol blend in 2011. Below are the comments he made on Friday as reported by Racing Today.
“Ethanol, I don’t know that we’ll see it in 2011 as a biofuel,” France said. “It’s certainly an option that is interesting.
“But it’s important for us to evolve the fuel source in the national divisions over time. We’ll do that with Sunoco for sure, trying to respect and value their set of rights.”
