Michael Peterson posed with the FFA members who took part in today’s parade.
This week it’s time to talk about the phone, mobile phones to be precise. What better way to deliver information to farmers? Lots, you think? Think again. At least I think you will after you listen to this week’s ZimmCast.
Since I’m posting this before leaving the Indianapolis Motor Speedway you can probably guess what the ZimmCast is about this week. Actually I interviewed Tom Slunecka, Executive Director of the Ethanol Promotion and Information Council (EPIC) and we talked about what a year it’s been for the ethanol industry and the organization.
Just in case you haven’t been looking at Domestic Fuel I’ll give you this post from the start of the Indy 500 today. I’ll have more later today or tomorrow depending on what happens during the race (or the finish!).
The big announcement from MFA Oil and Mid Missouri Energy was made this morning as we reported earlier this week. Pictured are members of the Columbia Chamber of Commerce, along with Phil Lampert (NEVC), Ryland Utlaut (Mid-Missouri Energy) and Jerry Taylor (MFA Oil) in a ribbon-cutting ceremony signifying the launch of the partnership.
It’s Miller Lite Carb Day at the track. For an hour this morning all the cars in the race Sunday got to put in some laps.
The co-owner of Rahal-Letterman Racing is Bobby Rahal. After today’s press conference I got to interview him about what ethanol means to his team and the IRL.
In response to multiple request from AgWired fans, I had to make sure we featured Danica. I think there’s a kind of Danica fever going around these days. She’s featured in USA Today’s Speed Weekend and also on the Friday cover. She’s hoping to improve on her 4th place finish here last year.
This will be all for a little while until I get back to my hotel. It looked like it was going to rain here but now the sun is back out and cars are on the track running practice laps. I think I’ll head on out to see who’s running before leaving for the day.
Jeff Simmons, driver of the Rahal-Letterman Ethanol Car was on hand today to talk about how things are going. I interviewed him just after the Ethanol Summit concluded.
