Food and Fuel Plant Fuels IndyCar

IndyCar Series EthanolLifeline Ethanol Food FuelLifeLine Foods, a pioneer in the production of food and energy, will be the official supplier of the 100 percent fuel-grade ethanol used in all IndyCar Series cars.

The St. Joseph, Mo. facility will supply about 120,000 gallons of the fuel. With the transition to an ethanol-blend in 2006 and then fuel-grade ethanol 2007, the IndyCar Series was the first motorsports league to require use of a renewable fuel.
“The IndyCar Series is the perfect showcase for the environmental and performance attributes of ethanol,” said Bill Becker, CEO of LifeLine Foods. “We are proud to be on the cutting edge of renewable energy technologies and provide fuel for cutting edge race cars.”
LifeLine Foods is a unique company that uses corn to produce food and fuel. One portion of the kernel is processed and marketed to the food industry while the remainder of the corn kernel is used for, among other things, cattle feed and energy needs.

The St. Joseph plant produces 50 million gallons of ethanol per year, providing an economic boost to the community, while minimizing its environmental footprint.

The 16-race IndyCar Series season opens March 29, 2008 under the lights at Homestead-Miami Speedway.
