Fox Business was interested in the NASCAR angle. After all, why would farmers team-up with the most-watched professional sport in America? Well that’s easy.

Corn-based ethanol has powered these vehicles now for over 4 million miles, courtesy of American Ethanol, a program supported by Illinois corn checkoff dollars.
