The American Ethanol Crappie Masters Kentucky/Tennessee State Championship will be held May 13-14 on Kentucky Lake and Lake Barkley. Activities will take place at Buchanon Resort and Paris Landing State Park in Tennessee. See contest details

This tournament is being sponsored by American Ethanol, Commonwealth Agri-Energy and the Kentucky Corn Growers with assistance from the Tennessee Corn Growers. They are working to dispel the myths about ethanol's impact on marine motors and other small engines.

Fuel blended with 10 percent ethanol (E10) comprises more than 95 percent of the gasoline sold nationwide. Regardless of make and model, most of the 12 million recreational boats in the United States are approved to operate on E10. 

“We are proud to partner with a progressive organization like Crappie Masters to help showcase ethanol’s performance power on the water,” said Mick Henderson, general manager of Commonwealth Agri-Energy. “These guys are serious about fishing and serious about their boats. They need a fuel they can trust and that is gas blended with 10 percent of renewable, cleaner burning, Kentucky-made ethanol.”
