Brazil to power Indy cars.

Brazil to power Indy cars: Indy Racing League President Terry Angstadt has signed an agreement to use Brazilian ethanol during the 2009 season. The memorandum of understanding with Brazil's trade promotion agency, APEX-Brasil, secures a supply of Brazilian ethanol for every race next year. The IRL has been racing with 100 percent ethanol fuel since 2007.

As part of the deal APEX-Brasil will sponsor the IRL, and Brazilian producers will supply part of the nearly 120,000 gallons of ethanol used in the IRL season. The exact amount was not specified.
