Illinois corn farmer Donna Jeschke got to wave the green flag for the American Ethanol 225 NASCAR Camping World Truck Series race. Donna is near the end of her term on the board of the Illinois Corn Marketing Board.
She found the experience to be exciting and just a little scary. She says this type of promotion puts what she does as a farmer out in front of the public to help them better understand where their food comes from.
In addition to the American Ethanol 225 NASCAR also held the Nationwide Series STP 300 on Sunday. You can find lots of photos from the weekend’s activities in my photo album. Link is below
