Indiana Company to Make 'green' Race Fuel

WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind., July 26 (UPI) — An Indiana company says it is partnering with a major U.S. motor racing series to bring “green” technology to the motor sports world.

Swift Enterprises Ltd. of West Lafayette has joined with the Great American Stockcar Series to produce high-performance “green” fuel for the series’ Aug. 7 race at Iowa Speedway in Newton, Iowa, a company release said Monday.

Unlike traditional petroleum-based racing fuels, the new fuel is renewable and made from resources like sorghum and wood, the company said.

Great American Stockcar Series founder Chris Evans said the company’s product could be the right fit for him and his teams.

“We are constantly looking for ways to maximize the efficiency and power output of our race engines,” he said. “The concept of Swift’s formulation of an eco-efficient fuel derived from biomass sources is of great interest to us.”

The 2010 Great American Stockcar Series races feature 22 custom-built, late-model stock cars powered by Ford, Chevrolet and Dodge engines.
