Ethanol Car Will Roll At Indy

Ethanol CarHere’s an end of the day post from Indianapolis. We’re heading out to the track early tomorrow. I understand that there are some restrictions on what we can take pictures of but I’ll find out more when I get there. It’s all in the name of ethanol promotion since Indy cars will be fueled by ethanol by 2007. Tomorrow we’ll get to see car #91 do laps with an ethanol/methanol fuel mix.

I was wondering why Jimmy Kite was going to be driving the Hemelgarn Racing Ethanol Car #91 and found out that it’s because of an injury to the regular driver, Paul Dana. Jimmy is a four time starter at Indianapolis. I’m obviously not a close follower of IndyCar racing but that may change after this weekend! By the way Jimmy qualified at 218.565 MPH which lands him in the last row of cars. However, he’s been there before so we’ll wish him luck.
