Nothing Lower Than Thieves….

As if racing a Top Fuel dragster wasn’t tough enough – the Ontario-based Nitro Express Racing team has been victimized to the tune of over $75,000….

Shortly after returning from their appearance at the NHRA national event in Reading PA the team which is owned by John LaPorte had their race car trailer broken into right at their shop in Bowmanville.   That occurrence was sometime overnight October 4th between 5:30 PM and 07:00 AM.

Thieves removed an injector, supercharger and manifold right off the race car and stole a spare motor, a second set of heads and Top Fuel headers.  A MSD retard box, various tools and the lap top computer used for all previous run information was also taken.

DragRaceCanada invites and encourages the entire drag racing community to be on the lookout for any of these components or any information on the guilty party.

Anyone with any tips is asked to please contact Durham Regional Police at 905-579-1520 ext 1687 – or John LaPorte direct at 905-242-2738.**
