CountryMark Fuels Power the Indiana State Fair


The 2013 Indiana State Fair will run from August 2-18 at the Indiana State Fairgrounds in Indianapolis. As a farmer-owned cooperative, CountryMark is proud to support the fair, and fairgoers will see CountryMark’s support throughout the 17 days of the fair.   In the carnival area, CountryMark fuels will power the rides that thrill the young and old alike. The carnival chose CountryMark’s Super Dieselex-4 with a B5 biodiesel blend.  The state fair shuttles will be powered by CountryMark’s Super Dieselex-4 with a B20 biodiesel blend. Fairgoers will no doubt be impressed with the power and performance of CountryMark’s American-made fuel!

CountryMark PLUS gasoline will power the fair’s huge display of antique tractors, which will be on parade every evening during the fair. Tractor owners will enjoy superior engine performance with this All-American TOP TIER fuel. Many shows and activities will take place during the fair at the Pioneer Village Stage in the Antique Barn and Opry House. CountryMark is proud to sponsor this stage, which provides outstanding entertainment for countless Hoosier visitors. “At CountryMark, we have a passion for agriculture and the success of Indiana farmers,” said CountryMark Vice President of Marketing Jon Lantz. “In fact, CountryMark is one of only a few farmer-owned oil refining companies in the United States. The farmers of our great state had an incredible vision of energy independence when they built the CountryMark refinery over 70 years ago in southern Indiana. We continue today to refine only 100% American crude oil gathered in the Illinois Basin. We also own our own pipeline distribution system, further protecting fuel quality and integrity for our end-user customers. In addition, CountryMark is recognized as a national leader in alternative fuels, proudly supplying a line of biodiesel and ethanol blends.”

CountryMark Sales Manager Steve Thomas encourages the public to come to the Indiana State Fair and celebrate Indiana agriculture with CountryMark.



It’s a great honor for us and our Member Cooperatives to be the official fuel provider of the Indiana State Fair,” said Thomas. “The carnival, shuttles and antique tractors afford us the opportunity to demonstrate the power and performance of our American fuels, while supporting a great Indiana tradition.”
