Street Car Takeover ran their first annual Ethanol Nationals this last July, an ethanol-only event that took place between cornfields at the Kearney Raceway Park, in Kearney, Nebraska. Larry Larson ran his S-10 in the top class, King of the Corn, for a $30,000 purse.
This meant Larson ran the S-10 on ethanol for the first time, as the truck typically runs a dual-fuel system that switches between methanol and pump gas. With a bit of tweaking on the air/fuel ratio and timing curve to acclimate the S-10 to corn alcohol, Larson had the S-10 dialed in as it battled rounds of big-tire madness. Hell, after the final, Larson had enough time to pick some corn before heading back down the return lane — because, why not?
