Wait.

So did I read it right, or was he just randomly standing outside his factory, while a five oh ran up and said, "oh yeah, you got smoke coming out, man!!", so he ran inside and grabbed some stuff, and then let it burn down?

I didn't want to seem like a hater but it sure is more than a coincidence that his factory burns down, he's standing outside & stores are pulling their product faster than I can imagine. I have been grp faithful since they came out, but if the shoe fits...

Probably a disgruntled customer who lit their Tuned .21 engine on fire and threw it inside the building coincidentally landing near the nitro fuel storage bin which just happened to be near the tire production area.

This is horrible news, insurance scam or not a lot of people are out of jobs and money.

I hope they rebuild and come back with even better products.

They were already done. Can they make nitro engines in prison like license plates?

definitely GRP's biggest flameout (they have had a few)but ............


in the economic aspect it is a tragedy as i am sure the factory had a few employees and the employees had families they supported .
happy motorin',
