Indy Racing chooses foreign fuel supply
In a multi-year deal announced in
November, the Indy Racing League
(IRL) named APEX-Brasil as the official
ethanol supplier for the IndyCar
Series. As a result, the Indy 500,
an American institution, could be
powered with foreign-sourced fuel.
“It’s amazing that amid all the progress
we have made toward energy independence,
the IRL decides to set us back,”
said American Future Fund communications
director Tim Albrecht.
The IRL’s decision blocks more than
180 ethanol producers in the United
States from supplying American-made
ethanol for Indy Racing cars.
