McCain’s Bomb Squad To Test And Fine-Tune At Famoso

February 26, 2009


In preparation for an attempt at conquering Funny Car Eliminator at the upcoming and prestigious 51st March Meet, Mendy Fry, Roland Leong and McCain’s Bomb Squad have entered this weekend’s test-and-tune session at Auto Club Famoso Raceway in Bakersfield.

This will be the last opportunity for Leong to implement and/or check out some changes in the Bomb Squad tune-up, before proper competition begins at the March Meet (which opens with qualifying on Friday, March 6th and ends with eliminations on Sunday, March 8th).

According to Famoso track manager Blake Bowser  in a report on Drag Racing Online, this weekend will be fat with AA/Fuel Dragsters and Heritage Series Nitro Funny Cars shaking off the cobwebs from a long winter, as well as making final adjustments to their combinations. He said: “We’ll have nitro cars running every couple of hours, probably starting around 11:30AM, but this is still a two-day test with an $80 entry fee per car for the weekend. Gates will open at 8 AM on both days, with cars going down the track at 9, but we’ll be closing at 5PM.”

The March Meet is the first competitive event in the 2009 NHRA Heritage Points Series, a season-long tournament that Fry and McCain’s Bomb Squad are dedicated to claiming.
