If the only history people learn is what is spoon-fed in public school, they've probably missed out on the part where northern states would capture escaped slaves and send them back to their owners. They've probably missed how northern states that were supposedly "free" wouldn't allow blacks to live within their borders. Everyone wants to turn up their noses at the South, but if you're…

Keep it up people we are setting a precedent and its only as matter of time before the stars and stripes have to be removed/changed due to protest from native Americans, or Al Sharpton (lets be honest the north had slaves just like the south). After that its the Union Jack for centuries of persecution against the scots Irish, and on and on and on. Hell my mere existence as a white male could be offensive…

Kenny Wallace promotes Ethanol in Springfield

NASCAR driver and commentator appeared with Sen. Sullivan

State Senator John Sullivan (D-Rushville) and NASCAR driver Kenny Wallace promoted the use of E-15 fuels during a Wednesday visit to the Illinois State Capitol in Springfield. 

“E-15 is a high-performance fuel, and I know a little about high performance,” Wallace said. “More people should have the chance to buy fuel that helps Illinois’ largest industry: agriculture.” 

E-15 is a blended biofuel made up of 85% gasoline and 15% ethanol. E-15 is available at some gas stations in Illinois but is less common than the 10% ethanol blend sold across the state. 

“The more ethanol we put into our gas, the more money we put into Illinois’ farm economy. By expanding the use of E-15 we promote agriculture, help the environment with lower emissions and reduce our dependence on foreign oil,” Sullivan said. 

NASCAR has exclusively used E-15 fuel during practice, qualification and races since 2011. NASCAR switched to E-15 to lower emissions and promote the use of biofuels. 

A 2013 study reported that – since switching to E-15 – NASCAR’s viewers were 40% more likely to support the expansion of ethanol fuels and 50% more likely to use ethanol blends in their own vehicles. The switch to E-15 also reduced on-track emissions by 20%. 

Since his first NASCAR race in 1988, Kenny Wallace has 900 starts, 9 Nationwide Series wins and three Nationwide Series Most Popular Driver awards.
