Ethanol powered cars at Madison Speedway
Corn growers showcased power of local, renewable fuel

Wisconsin corn growers celebrated the success of ethanol as a high performance fuel with a special night of racing at Madison International Speedway featuring 17-year-old Michael Raskovic driving the #14 American Ethanol Truck, powered by 98% ethanol fuel, in the American Ethanol SuperTruck series sponsored by the Wisconsin Corn Growers Association (WCGA). 
 The Wisconsin Corn Growers E-15 Bandit Challenge race for young guns, also ran on ethanol that night, showcasing 15 percent ethanol fuel, the same grade of fuel used by NASCAR. The speedway is a paved oval a short distance from Wisconsin Highway 138, near Oregon, Wis., billed as the fastest half-mile track in the state. Former champions at the track include Matt Kenseth, Rich Bickle, Travis Kvapil and Dick Trickle.
