Jay Berry is a farmer from Swayzee Indiana. He started Central Indiana Ethanol (CIE) in 2002 at the age of 22, and has been very active in the Agriculture & Ethanol industry. CIE started construction in mid-2005 and was completed in 2007. After getting CIE up and running, Berry worked with retailers to facilitate the installation of E85 pumps in the state of Indiana.
In 2008 Berry created Ignite Racing Fuel, with the goal and purpose of giving racers and auto enthusiasts with high performance engines a higher grade of ethanol fuel product. Ignite’s first customers were in the dirt track racing circuit, but since then, Ignite has grown as a racing fuel supplier to power the fastest boats and cars in the world with high performance fuel ethanol.
Ignite does not only supply racing fuel, but also focuses on promoting the ethanol industry, dispelling myths about ethanol’s performance, and proving that ethanol is the best fuel on the market. Jay and his team work with and supply a broad spectrum of racing disciplines including, tractor pullers, drag racers, road racers, drift drivers, boat teams, airplanes racers and dirt track teams. The Ignite family has won several different national championships going up against drivers running conventional racing gasoline. As a farmer, Jay feels strongly that it is important to promote ethanol not only for its on-track performance, but because it is keeping the agricultural community alive and well and benefits our environment. Keep an eye on Ignite’s Facebook page (Ignite Racing Fuel) and Twitter/Instagram (@igniteracingfuel) for all things racing and ethanol related.
