It was an all-American victory Sunday as Team Ethanol scored its first IndyCar Series win on Independence Day weekend at the Camping World Grand Prix in Watkins Glen, NY.
For Rahal Letterman team driver Ryan Hunter-Reay, it was a dream come true.
“American kid winning with ethanol on the side of the car,” Ryan said after the race. “It’s an American team – Bobby Rahal gave me the job and now we’re in Victory Circle.”
It was also an all-American dream come true for corn growers and the ethanol industry, since this is the second year the IndyCar Series has run on 100 percent ethanol.
