Each year the National Biodiesel Board bestows the â€œEye on Biodieselâ€ awards, designed to recognize individuals and groups who have advanced the boardâ€™s mission of public education and industry growth. The awards were presented by NBB Chairman Darryl Brinkmann (left) and NBB CEO Joe Jobe (right). Award for:
Influencer â€“ Bill and Cindy Mack.
Bill and Cindy Mack, known and admired by U.S. truckers, have significantly increased the awareness of biodiesel in that large market. Bill Mack, XM Radioâ€™s â€œSatellite Cowboy,â€ not only recently helped kick off the Biodiesel Hotline, 866-BIODIESEL, but he and Cindy have spoken about biodiesel on â€œOpen Roadâ€ the past few years. â€œTruckers are committed to using biodiesel and we get a lot of calls from truckers looking for biodiesel on the road,â€ said Bill. â€œWe want to do whatever we can to help them find biodiesel. We believe it is the right thing for America.â€ They often send listeners to NBBâ€™s Web site, biodiesel.org, as well as to NBBâ€™s â€œBiotruckerâ€ information; and they have regularly spent entire shows discussing only biodiesel, often with guest Willie Nelson.
