Sunoco Green E15: the new high-performance fuel for the 2011 NASCAR season

Article by Christian A., on October 18, 2010

National Association for Stock Car Auto Racing (NASCAR) announced today that the new high-performance fuel for the 2011 season will be the Sunoco Green E15 (manufactured by Sunono Inc.), a 15% ethanol blend that will be used in NASCAR's three national touring series.

The fuel will be blended at Sunoco's fuel facility in Marcus Hook, while the corn-based ethanol will come in part from Sunoco's facility in Fulton.

According to NASCAR team engine builders, the fuel has been tested for several months and received positive feedback. This means that the fans will see the same show, but the cars will become greener.

The new Sunoco Green E15 will replace Sunoco 260 GTX, a 98-octane unleaded race fuel that set the standard for performance. According to Sunoco, the fuel will be used in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series, NASCAR Nationwide Series, and NASCAR Camping World Truck Series.

"Since 2004, Sunoco has produced and delivered to NASCAR the world's best racing fuel flawlessly in a challenging, high-stakes environment," said Bob Owens, Senior Vice President, Sunoco.

"We're proud to be part of NASCAR's dedication to conservation with Sunoco Green E15 – the ultimate high-test ethanol fuel blend. In our six years as official fuel partner, Sunoco has changed with the times by helping NASCAR transition to unleaded fuel. Now we are eager to produce for the sport a high-performance ethanol blend."
