Lets hope they find this thing and or it was stolen for the fuel to be resold to other racers and not used for nefarious purposes. The cargo is very valuable this stuff is expensive like everything in racing is. How in the world does somebody steal an 18 wheeler at a public event drive it away and get away with it? Talk about brazen idiocy,good find op.

No kidding, and it's not like it's an inconspicuous vehicle. I also hope that it was someone out to make a quick buck and nothing more than that. I'm guessing once the person figures out what's in there, he's going to know that federal agents will be looking everywhere.

I was at that race, it was the las vegas to reno 1,000 mile off road race.

i saw that truck friday morning.
It must have been stolen from the pit area on friday night.

We started in beatty nv on thursday and raced to tonapah, then friday was from tonapah to hawthorne, sat from hawthorne to reno.


IT WAS NOT NITROMETHANE,

It was carrying gasoline, for race teams.





And the Ok city bomb was made from diesel fuel and ammonium nitrate(fertilizer).

I only know what was posted, if there was no Nitro, then that's a good thing. Curious about the DHS getting involved for Gasoline though..

On another note, McVeigh did use Nitromethane. He purchased 3 55 gallon drums from the Texas Motorplex..

From Wikipedia: en.wikipedia.org...



Bombing Main article: Oklahoma City bombing Working at a lakeside campground near McVeigh's old Army post, he and Nichols constructed an ANNM explosive device mounted in the back of a rented Ryder truck. This site was regarded as suitable because a moving truck would not seem out of place, given the transient population of the area. The bomb consisted of about 5,000 pounds (2,300 kg) of ammonium nitrate (an agricultural fertilizer) and nitromethane, a motor-racing fuel. On April 19, 1995 McVeigh drove the truck to the front of the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building just as its offices and day care center opened for the day. Prosecutors said McVeigh ran away from the truck after he ignited two time fuses; one was a two-minute fuse, and another was a backup of five minutes. At 9:02 a.m., a massive explosion destroyed the north half of the building. The explosion was so powerful that McVeigh, who was jogging away from the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building, was lifted off the ground. The explosion killed 168 people, and 450 were injured.[50] Nineteen of the victims were small children in the day care center on the ground floor of the building.[51]
