Famoso DragFest

In the wake of “Nitro Kitty” Mendy Fry posting her first 5-second elapsed times in a Nitro Funny Car last weekend in Sacramento, comes news that she will light the fuse in McCain’s Bomb Squad at “Drag Fest” in Famoso this weekend….

Mendy and McCain’s ’73 Duster are slated for two qualifying passes on Saturday, in preparation for an 8-car eliminator to compete on Sunday.

According to a report on the Nitronic Research blog, ” there is also a complement of Nitro Funny Cars that are slated to appear at this Rod & Kulture Magazine-sanctioned drag race. Among the rumored and proposed Famoso Raceway-bound entries: Jack Wright’s Joker Challenger, the Future Flash Dodge Charger, the Beach City Chevrolet Corvette, the Fighting Irish machine, the Crazy Horse Mustang, Kris Krabil in bike magnate Gary Turner’s Pedaler, and the Burnin’ Money Camaro.”

Also pounding the pavement this weekend are AA/Fuel Dragsters — including the legendary entries of High Speed Motorsports and Champion Speed Shop — as well as bountiful helping of AA/Fuel Altereds, a jet car, and other examples of badass machinery.
