Anyone know if you can get e85 at Mid-Ohio?

Doing the CCA event on the 19th...trying to figure out if I should dial in for 93 Octane or e85. Found a Kroger 20min away but not sure if I will have time during the day to run that far for it.

Anyone know if you can get e85 at or near the track?

You're going to really burn through a lot of fuel if you run e85 on the track. It gives you more power, but you don't get as good a fuel mileage.
We thought about running it in our race car, but then realized how much more we'd have to stop and how much more it was going to cost us so we bagged that idea quickly.
BTW: I ran the BMWCCA Endurance series at Mid-Ohio in May. We came in third overall. Quickest time I ran was a 1:40.731
