America’s farmers have it pretty tough these days. Despite being on the front lines of food production, they’re falsely vilified by the oil industry lobbyists for pushing ethanol and raising food prices.
Now, more than a decade after the loss of Dale Earnhardt, the number 3 returns to Daytona with Austin Dillon, who wasted no time in returning the number 3 to glory with a pole at Daytona … powered, in part, by American Ethanol!
That’s right, kids! You could (assuming that my math is right) drive more than 600 miles on just under 6 gallons of gasoline in Chevy’s new Silverado HD.

Richard Childress is a legend in NASCAR. While those outside the sport may not know his name, however, they know the iconic no. 3 that Childress’ driver, Dale Earnhardt, drove to NASCAR’s premier championship in 1986. And 1987.

Switzer Performance has carved out a few special little performance niches for itself in recent years – most notably in alternative fuels tuning and for “advancing the state of the art” when it comes to electronic engine management systems. This latest car, which started life as a 485 hp R35 Nissan GTR, combines both disciplines, […]
