ATASCADERO, CALIF. -- The 38th annual Pepsi Nightfire Nationals at Firebird Raceway is quite a magnet for drag racers in the western United States, especially the nitro funny cars. With driver Mendy Fry piloting their 240-mile per hour racecar, McCain's Bomb Squad is heading for Boise, Idaho again this year to race against some of the finest nostalgia funny cars in the business.

McCain's Bomb Squad grabbed low qualifier honors at Sacramento Raceway's Funny Car Fever this year, a runner up finish at Famoso Raceway's DragFest and set quick elapsed time at the recent Las Vegas Speed Spectacular. Mendy Fry and McCain's Bomb Squad are ready with a new engine combination setup for the high-altitude Boise track along with nearly twenty other nitro funny cars for this NHRA Hot Rod Heritage Series race.

Prior to the race, McCain's Bomb Squad 1973 Plymouth Duster nitro funny car will be on display at the Key Bank location in Eagle, ID, the Official Bank of Firebird Raceway. Then on Friday August 13, McCain's Bomb Squad will head to the staging lanes at the track for Nitro Jam Professional Qualifying scheduled for 7:00 PM, the second and final session is on Saturday at 1:00 PM with the first round of eliminations for the sixteen-car field beginning at 7:PM Saturday night. The Nitro finals are scheduled for 5:00 PM on Sunday evening under what has been described as perfect weather for the entire weekend.

The next event for both Mendy Fry and McCain's Bomb Squad is Cruzin' for Life taking place in Downtown Santa Maria, California on September 26 & 27. Mendy will be the Grand Marshall of the event and McCain's Bomb Squad nitro funny car will be a featured attraction. The annual Cruzin' for Life event, at Santa Maria Fairpark, supports the local Marian Cancer Center.
