FRIDAY, MAY 30 Wisconsin Ethanol -- Milwaukee Mile Fuel Event Info

Every race car competing in this past Sunday's Indy 500 AND in this Sunday's ABC Supply / A.J. Foyt 225 IndyCar Series race at The Milwaukee Mile will be racing on 100 percent fuel-grade Ethanol fuel.

THIS FRIDAY (May 30), Ethanol-backed IndyCar Series race driver Ryan Hunter Reay will be giving away $20 gas cards to the first (100) one hundred customers that purchase E85 fuel, beginning at 11:30am, at Pioneer Plaza.

Race fans will be able to get the California open wheel star's autograph at the event.

Hunter-Reay was signed to drive for Rahal Letterman Racing (co-owned by 1986 Indy 500 champion Bobby Rahal and late night TV host David Letterman) last June and did not compete in the 2007 ABC Supply / A.J. Foyt 225.

In record-setting fashion, RHR led all 250 laps to score a victory at The Mile in 2005 in a Champ Car World Series championship open wheel event, so he knows how to get around America's Legendary Oval.

Hunter-Reay was the highest finishing rookie in last Sunday's Indy 500, finishing 6th, and will be in one of the largest IndyCar Series fields ever -- 27 cars -- to take a green flag at The Milwaukee Mile. Auto racing at The Milwaukee Mile began in 1903, with The Mile an integral venue to hold open wheel championship history since 1933. Sunday's race will be history making.

Every high-compression, 650hp IndyCar Series engine is powered by 113 octane, 100 percent fuel-grade Ethanol, making the IndyCar Series the motorsports leader in using a renewable and environmentally friendly fuel, and fits with the Indy Racing League's long tradition of technological and safety innovations.

E85 fuel is a blend of 85 percent ethanol and 15 percent gasoline.

56% of all gasoline sold in the United States is blended with some percentage of Ethanol.

This promotion is in partnership with Wisconsin Ethanol, the Wisconsin Corn Growers, Wisconsin Chapter of the American Lung Association, Renew Energy, and EPIC (Ethanol Promotion Industry Council).
