Methanol vaporizes much faster than gasoline, cooling everything it touches. If you've never felt it, it's similar to touching rubbing alcohol. When the cars are run in the summer when it's humid, the injection stacks will "sweat" from being cold.
To anyone that follows drag racing they will know this, and to those who don't, you'll learn something. The alcohol dragster & alcohol funny car classes have a problem with frost buildup on the injector scoops on top of the superchargers. In the time it takes to start the car, do the burnout, and back up to stage, a crewmember will spray de-icer on the injector butterflies before the car makes its pass.
