nitro supply and price
« on: April 12, 2020, 06:28:05 AM »
Wondering how all the tension with China is or will be affecting the supply of nitro and the price of it. To my understanding(maybe off) all of our  Nitro comes from China. Hopefully bad information on that. If true is time somebody start up a production facility here. The crap with toilet paper we need our nitro people.

Iíve had the same feelings. Not sure whatís happening, it looks like Sunoco has the NHRA bid at this time and as far as anyone Iíve seen knows that Yes itís all made in China.

I would bet that the real issue is that the EPA, ABCDEFG name them all govt agencies under the Manchurian Candidate created red tape has made it nearly impossible to make Nitro in the USA.

There should be plenty as teams really aren't using any.
NHRA (big show) won't be racing until July or August so that will help supply issues.

Paid the same. The purchase was very much like a drug deal , go way down this alley, cash only, no receipts and I've never seen you before. Addiction takes you places you never thought you'd go.
