Growth Energy close to a deal with NASCAR? NASCAR is poised to sign its first new high-profile sponsorship in 20 months and take a significant step forward in the green initiative it began two years ago by aligning with an ethanol lobby group known as Growth Energy [growthenergy.org]. The deal, which sources said is close to completion, would make Growth Energy an official marketing partner. If completed, the deal also would usher new money into NASCAR at a time when the series and its teams have been challenged by cuts to corporate sponsorship budgets. Sunoco will remain the official fuel of NASCAR. Sunoco raised some concerns about the Growth Energy deal that are being worked through, according to sources. Growth Energy is expected to use a NASCAR partnership primarily to promote the American ethanol industry. It’s unclear whether Growth Energy members would provide ethanol to Sunoco. Sunoco has its own ethanol production plant in upstate New York. Terms of the proposed agreement with Growth Energy were not available. The ethanol partnership would be tied to NASCAR’s reported plan to convert to 15% ethanol-blended fuel in 2011. Fox Sports reported in May that Hendrick Motorsports was already testing the fuel. NASCAR spokesman Andrew Giangola confirmed the series is evaluating alternative fuels with its fuel partner, Sunoco, but declined to comment on a potential partnership with Growth Energy. “We haven’t specified a time frame in transitioning to a next-generation fuel, nor do we speculate or comment on potential new partners,” Giangola said. Growth Energy declined to comment. Growth Energy is a two-year-old advocacy organization that represents more than 65 ethanol production plants across the United States. It promotes ethanol as a renewable fuel that can effectively reduce greenhouse gas emissions and the nation’s dependence on foreign oil. Shifting to an ethanol blend could present some challenges for teams and tracks. Ethanol can’t travel in pipelines along with gasoline because it picks up excess water. Therefore, it has to be transported in trucks. The IndyCar Series switched to 100% ethanol fuel in 2005, and ethanol fuel trucks come to every race to provide the fuel. Next season, its fuel will be provided by Unica, the Brazilian sugarcane industry association, and Sunoco.(SportsBusiness Journal/Sporting News)(10-5-2010)

I used to love these short track races. They’re just not the same with this new car and NASCAR’s mamby-pamby rules.

Still fun ... just not as much.

Go 29!!

I thought I did badly last week, but I moved up 9 places in the Fall rankings. Saw the great pics of your garlic planting. I need to plant mine soon. I have a couple drivers off the job too. Soon I will be forced to pick Robbie Gordon.

Will you reconsider becoming crew chief for my Banana Slug Racing team or do I need my drivers to wreck your drivers?

I have the chains fitted to the tires when I buy a vehicle, just in case I’m not the one driving it when they’re needed.

You probably think I checked to see if he is on my team (he isn't). I like some of the comments here at T.W.I.R.

Don't ask me why I'm on line at 1am...

I can think of no good reason to be up and on-line at 1:00am unless you’ve taken up a new kind of work.

So, if Kahne drives the ‘83’ car does that make him a “C” driver now? Inquiring minds want to know...

Crystal clear skies w/bright moon this morning..last nice day then the roof falls in. Weather alerts not only up and down the coastal towns but we’ve got one in Bend also - snow level 4000’ Sunday and we’re at, gulp, 4000’.

The rain and maybe wind is coming. Depending on whether (weather, get it?) the Asian typhoon creates a void and pulls it north, or maybe south towards you...

Flipper needs to drop the Nationwide gig and focus on cup. I know he loves to drive. But I think it messes up his rhythm.

He rally has little chance of winning the cup unless Jimmy and Denny both falter.
