St. Joseph MO (SPX) Feb 12, 2008
LifeLine Foods will join forces with the IndyCar Series for the 2008 season as the official supplier of the 100 percent fuel-grade ethanol used in all IndyCar Series cars. The St. Joseph, Mo. facility was contracted by the Ethanol Promotion and Information Council (EPIC) to supply approximately 120,000 gallons of the fuel to the IndyCar Series.

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. Utilizing a bran energy recovery system, total plant energy needs will be reduced by approximately 50 percent. This method insures that the company is getting the most value out of corn, benefiting the agriculture, food and ethanol industries.

"We're proud that the ethanol powering our cars is made through this innovative process, furthering our green racing message. We couldn't be more pleased with our decision to embrace ethanol at the IndyCar Series.

On the track, it has performed incredibly well. Off the track, it has played a huge role in our efforts to go green and lead the industry in technology and innovation. This partnership with LifeLine is another step in that direction," said Terry Angstadt, President, Commercial Division of the Indy Racing League, the sanctioning body of the IndyCar Series.

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 ethanol industry is constantly evolving," said Robert White, the interim executive director of EPIC. "We are dedicated to being good stewards of the environment while providing solutions to our nation's long term energy needs. LifeLine Foods is a shining example of these ideals."

The fuel from the facility will be shipped to Indianapolis and stored at Superior Solvents and Chemicals, which can store up to 30,000 gallons. Superior's highly trained staff of chemists and technicians will be responsible for loading all tanker trailers and distributing the fuel to each IndyCar Series Open Test and race event during the season.

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