Yellow Hose E-85 Fuels Power Championship Winning Race Cars


Rochester Hills, Michigan (March 28, 2016) - Last Saturday, March 26, 2016, American Ethanol Late Model Tour (AELMT) teams, officials and track promoters had a rare opportunity to tour the Carbon Green BioEnergy’s (CGBE) Ethanol Plant in Lake Odessa, Michigan. This tour and luncheon gave participants a chance to discuss the upcoming 2016 American Ethanol Late Model Tour season, prior to the Carbon Green BioEnergy presentation and plant tour. In addition to providing fans with spectacular racing by the top dirt late model drivers in the state of Michigan, the American Ethanol Late Model Tour will strive to educate fans and participants about the benefits of ethanol and how it positively impacts not just their wallets but the environment and local communities. 


During the presentation portion of the afternoon, AELMT guests were engaged in learning about the different grades of fuel and the many benefits of Ethanol and how it supports local Jobs that cannot be outsourced, Supports Economic Growth in rural America and saves consumer’s money at the Pump with a Clean Burning, High Octane, Renewable alternative to Gasoline.  Yellow Hose, Carbon Green BioEnergy’s branded Ethanol Marketing Program, has nearly 40 pump locations in Michigan with many more on the way. Currently, all 40 locations offer E-85 fuel and five of those locations offer midlevel blends like E-15 and E-30 in addition to selling E-85 for flex fuel vehicles. To find the Yellow Hose location nearest you with E85 priced at least fifty cents less than regular unleaded, download the Yellow Hose mobile app or visit Yellow Hose E-85 fuel will also be available at a majority of race tracks to supply the American Ethanol Late Model Tour driver running the fuel.  


People may be surprised to learn that racers can use E-85 fuels in their race cars. Pure Ethanol is 113 octane with the E85 you get from the gas station being almost 106. In 2015, out of 92 American Ethanol Late Model Tour drivers, Rich Neiser was the only driver using E-85 to power his number 87 dirt late model. With E-85 under the hood, he powered his way up the standings all the way to the American Ethanol Late Model Tour Championship.  After witnessing the championship run of 2015, six additional American Ethanol Late Model Tour teams have already announced they will be switching to E-85 in 2016. These seven E-85 powered machines can be identified on the track by the decals they’ll be carrying. For more information on American Ethanol Late Model Tour drivers, visit the driver's section of


“It was a great experience to get the racing community out to the Ethanol Plant to see what we do here at CGBE and why we are involved in Racing." stated AELMT Director and CGBE Representative, Nick Rice."Having the race teams, fans and owners involved and being our grass roots advocates for Ethanol helps us spread the many benefits of ethanol and helps us dispel all the false information that the oil industry wants everyone to believe.  I think everyone enjoyed the tour and getting to see what I do for a living when I'm not working on the race tour.” added Mr. Rice.


The American Ethanol Late Model Tour begins the 2016 campaign at Winston Speedway in Rothbury, Michigan on Saturday, May 27th. Modifieds, Street Stocks, Dirt Stocks, Warriors and Young Guns will join the AELMT on this action packed night. Twelve events in total make up the 2016 championship series with a ten thousand dollar grand prize.
