Mendy Fry #1 Qualifier at Funny Car Fever… By A Whisker!

April 25, 2009

After the clutch dust settled from this morning’s final qualifying at Sacramento Raceway’s Funny Car Fever, the leader board showed McCain’s Bomb Squad in the top position. But it was close: After posting a 6.003 elapsed time coupled with a top-end speed of 235 mph, we claimed the #1 spot over 2nd-best Kris Krabill in Gary Turner’s Pedaler by a whisker-thin 5/1000ths of second! (Last nite, Krabill recorded a 6.008, backed with a stellar top end charge of 242 mph.)

After Jack Beckman’s unfortunate crash last night,  there are 14 entries left in the 16-car Nitro Funny Car class, which means that once eliminations begin this afternoon both myself and Krabill will get uncontested “bye” runs into the 2nd round.

Stay tuned for more news from Cowtown, cyber-cats and kittens.
