GM To Petition NASCAR To Make Ethanol Switch
General Motors, one of NASCAR’s top sponsors, plans to file a formal petition asking that it switch to ethanol to power its vehicles, That’s Racin reports (via GreenCarCongress). GM sponsors 22 Nextel Cup cars under its Chevrolet nameplate, about half the field of any given race. It plans to move forward with an official presentation to NASCAR ownership.
“We do have the technical know-how,” said Brent Dewar, vice president of GM North America sales, service and marketing. “It’s something we would have to work in conjunction with NASCAR on. NASCAR would have to encourage other manufacturers to do it as well.”
Back in March, The IndyCar Series was the first in motorsports to use a renewable fuel.
