DOW – ANGUS CEASING NITRO PRODUCTION NOTHING NEW TO
The NHRA has known since
the beginning of the year that the Dow Chemical Brand has been looking to
change its status within the nitro community. Back in January, the company
indicated that it was ceasing international distribution of their product.
Yesterday they took it one step further.
Dow Chemical made their
announcement yesterday leaving the racing community with only two sources of
the fuel and both are produced in China. Only one, Wego (distributed
by VP Racing Fuels), is approved for use in the NHRA. The other Chinese source,
ProNitro, is not on that approved list.
