A few feet from the iconic pagoda at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway sits a redesigned EZ-Go golf cart full of trash. Plastic bottles that were thrown into the recycling bin a few months ago are now stacked neatly in rows – and they’re on sale.

Go fast too.

The electric cart contains hundreds of Indy 500 T-shirts made from scrap. The clothes are as soft as anything on a regular merchandise store shelf, and they cost about the same. It’s no coincidence that they get prime retail space, basically located at the front door of the famous race track.

They are at the heart of IndyCar’s latest push to go green, dubbed the “Penske Initiative.” The series is taking more and more steps toward having carbon-neutral races by 2050—some bigger than others. No, really.

What might have been considered a laughable effort a few years ago now seems like a reasonable target, despite IndyCar’s fuel and tire truck loads, as well as myriad pollutants such as emissions, chemicals and petroleum products. That’s not counting the waste of hosting nearly 300,000 fans at the 106th Indy 500 on Sunday.

“It’s baby steps,” said Doug Boles, longtime IMS president. “For a car, it’s like a hundredth of a second. It doesn’t seem like a lot, but when you add up four or five changes, all of a sudden you have a tenth of a second. That’s where we are A place. A lot of little things that ultimately promise a big impact.”

This includes suspending traditional balloon releases due to environmental and wildlife impact concerns.

Here are some of the more notable ventures Penske Entertainment is doing to help fight global warming and do its part to wave the green flag of sustainability:

renewable fuel

IndyCar will be the first North American racing series to use 100 percent renewable fuels in its cars.

Shell, the long-term fuel sponsor of the open-wheel series, announced on Friday plans to switch to low-carbon fuels from 2023. The new fuel will be a blend of second-generation ethanol derived from sugarcane waste and other biofuels, and it will create a fuel that is 100 percent classified as a renewable feedstock under the applicable regulatory framework. The oil major said the fuel would reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 60 percent compared to fossil gasoline.

“You have to be part of the solution and the way to bring technology through these really strong partners,” said Mark Miles, President and CEO of Penske Entertainment. “Carbon reductions come from great technology and innovators. Both of us All.”

Renewable tires

Firestone has been working on renewable tires since 2012 and is approaching the finish line to get it on track.

A decade ago, the tire maker established a research center in Mesa, Arizona, and hired hundreds of biologists, chemists and botanists to help develop the guacamole shrub. Guayule produces natural rubber and appears to be the future of racing tires.

About 90% of the world’s rubber comes from rubber trees in Southeast Asia. Harvesting these trees and bringing the rubber back to North America is expensive and creates a large carbon footprint. It is also affected by geopolitical instability.

Guayelle is a cheaper, more sustainable alternative that renews itself in about three years and requires 50% less water than other crops.

Guayule tires, featuring green painted sidewalls, made their IndyCar debut in Friday’s pitstop challenge. They’ll be tested more seriously at the Music City Grand Prix in Nashville, Tennessee, in August, when IndyCar will use tires made in part from guayule rubber.

“You don’t want to go straight to the Indianapolis 500,” said Cara Krstolic, director of racing tire engineering for Bridgestone Motorsport of the Americas. “You want to get there in stages. One of the fun things about racing is that every once in a while you show stuff that ends up in the car that you and I will be driving.”

electric truck

Penske Truck Leasing uses two all-electric tractor trailers to haul all the race tires used in May from Firestone’s distribution center. IndyCar installed a high-speed charging station at IMS that can bring a truck close to full charge in about three hours. The truck was relocated six times to relocate 12 trailers full of tires.

The expansion of electric tractor-trailers and the installation of more charging stations could be a series of carbon-reduction measures that traverse the country on a regular basis.

Compost/Donate

IMS installed a pilot project in May to collect food waste and send it to an off-site composting facility. Prepared and unused food that would have been thrown into the bin in previous years is now stored in refrigerated trailers and taken to food banks on a daily basis.

However, the electric golf cart full of recycled clothes got the most attention at Indy this week. The cart has been stuck in one place for the past two weeks, but officials plan to make it a rolling market. It has a range of 50 miles and comes with a generator instead of running LED lights and a point-of-sale device.

Each shirt is partially made from 6½ plastic bottles and uses water-based ink. There are five designs priced between $32 and $35.

“When people stand up and feel the shirt, they can’t believe it’s made from a plastic bottle,” said Raeann Suggs, senior merchandise buyer at IMS and IndyCar. “I would have thought, ‘I’m not going to buy one with Shirts made from plastic bottles. That would be trash! But it was trash and it felt great.”
