In a session that saw twenty-seven Nitro Funny Cars attempt to tame the Famoso quarter-mile, let’s just say that most of those entries wish they could have their fuel back!

McCain’s Bomb Squad is no exception. The car shook hard. I pedaled it — as per Roland Leong’s instruction — but the car shook harder when I got back on the throttle.

Elapsed time: 10.06, which puts up 21st and not qualified yet. Not good, but….

Only ten Funny Cars were able to turn an elapsed time in the six-second range; with quickest eight positions racing on Sunday, it appears the remaining qualifying sessions will be a real donnybrook of drag racing action…

Better times tomorrow…. Nitro qualifying for the 51st March Meet resumes at 12:30 in the afternoon. — MF
