Iowa Corn Indy 250 Highlights Ethanol as Fuel

Auto-racing fans across the country will have their eyes on Iowa when the Iowa Corn Indy 250 is held June 24.
The race, which will be held at the new Iowa Speedway in Newton, will be broadcast live on ABC starting at noon.
Lead sponsors for the event are the Iowa Corn Promotion Board and the Iowa Corn Growers Association, which are highlighting the fact that Indy Racing League cars are fueled by 100 percent ethanol. And that's not just here at the Iowa Corn Indy 250, but in all Indy Racing League events including the granddaddy of them all -- the Indianapolis 500.
Legendary race car driver A.J. Foyt will be a special guest. Foyt was inducted into the International Motorsports Hall of Fame in 2000.
