In the American Ethanol Late Model Tour's three year history, the Tour has made one appearance at the Plymouth Speedway. That appearance came just a few weeks ago on Saturday, August 5th. 2017 Dirt late Model Dream winner, Steve Casebolt held the point over a 20 car field to claim his first American Ethanol Late Model Tour victory in his first AELMT start.
"We enjoyed our first time at Plymouth Speedway. The staff and fans were very welcoming and the facility is spectacular", noted AELMT Director, Nick Rice. "We provided fans with great racing on a very fast track. It's just too bad there weren't more fans to see it", added Mr. Rice.
The next event for the American Ethanol Late Model Tour is this Sunday, September 3rd at Merritt Speedway, located in Lake City, Michigan. Tour points leaders, Dona Marcoullier, Eric Spangler and Brandon Thirlby lead the charge into Merritt with what is now, just 4 races remaining in the Championship.

About American Ethanol
American Ethanol is a partnership between Growth Energy and the National Corn Growers Association and is a collaborative-effort marketing campaign to increase awareness of the reliability, performance capabilities and affordability of American made E15 Ethanol. Growth Energy, an ethanol industry group, and the National Corn Growers Association formed the American Ethanol partnership which highlights E15, a high-performance fuel, providing the same drivability with increased engine performance as regular gasoline. It’s a 15% Ethanol blend made with American ethanol from corn grown in our nation’s heartland and an 85% Gas blend. After extensive testing, NASCAR adopted the fuel for use in all three of their national racing series in 2011. The race teams and engine builders were heavily involved in the transition process, and have since reported high praise for the fuel, which boosts horsepower while reducing emissions.
