WASHINGTON (April 23, 2014) – America’s Power, the country’s leading coal advocacy group, launched a new contest giving fans a chance to meet America’s favorite NASCAR driver, Dale Earnhardt Jr., and to attend the NASCAR Nationwide and Sprint Cup Series races in Homestead, Fla. this November.

 

America’s Power works in Washington, D.C. and communities across the country to promote and protect affordable, reliable coal-fueled electricity. This is the third year that America’s Power has partnered with Earnhardt Jr. and his racing team, JR Motorsports. Since 2012, America’s Power has sponsored a JR Motorsports car in the Nationwide Series, including the past two seasons with driver Regan Smith.

 

Through the partnership, Earnhardt Jr. and Smith have toured the country learning about advancements in clean coal technologies, meeting fans at NASCAR tracks and participating in media interviews to discuss the importance of affordable, reliable clean coal electricity. Last year, Earnhardt Jr. toured CONSOL Energy’s Enlow Fork Mine in Washington, Pa. and the John W. Turk Power Plant in Fulton, Ark. Smith visited the Prairie State Energy Campus in Marissa, Ill.

 

“Our partnership with America’s Power has enabled us to get the word out about importance of coal as part of our nation’s energy mix, while affording me and Regan the opportunity to meet fans and supporters from across the country, including those who work in the coal industry directly,” Earnhardt Jr. said. “It’s been a fantastic relationship and a natural pairing since so many NASCAR fans live in areas that depend on affordable energy...
