The Number 33 Chevrolet to be driven by NASCAR driver Clint Bowyer in this year's NASCAR Sprint Cup Series will sport the sponsorship of American Ethanol. During the season Bowyer will serve as an official spokesman for American Ethanol on behalf of America's green, clean alternative fuel component. American Ethanol will be the primary sponsor at the June 5 Kansas Speedway 400 and an associate sponsor of the car for the rest of the season.
Growth Energy CEO Tom Buis says Richard Childress Racing and Clint Bowyer are great additions to the American Ethanol team.
"Clint's from Kansas, and he knows first-hand the opportunities that American farming and American ethanol offer our country," Buis said. "Opportunities to create jobs here, clean our air, and strengthen national security by making our nation more energy independent."
Bart Schott, National Corn Growers Association president, points out that corn farmers have played a big role funding research to make ethanol production more efficient and promoting its many benefits. Now, it is time to showcase all ethanol has to offer on a national stage.
