The new racing season puts the pedal to the floor Sunday with many changes, but the fuel remains the same. It's the start of NASCAR's 2017 season with the 59th running of the Daytona 500.

It will feature the usual changes of paint schemes, driver and crew changes and even a new title sponsor for NASCAR's Cup Series. But the fuel stays the same.

It's clear NASCAR is sticking with this winner. With over 500 million miles driven on E15 by American consumers, it looks as if E15 is also a proven winner at the pump.

American Ethanol also enjoyed an elevated profile off-track. Over the past year, the number of states selling E15 doubled. Consumers can now purchase E15 in 28 states at more than 630 gas stations, and can expect E15's availability to expand even more in 2017.
