Saturday Racing Action from BakersfieldS

Skies are clear here at Famoso Raceway and the staging lanes are packed. Yesterday brought qualifying along with voluminous amounts of nitromethane, alcohol, and even a bit of race gas burned up for what was the largest single day crowd the CHRR has seen to date. Sunday will bring elimination rounds and the Funny Cars to the tarmac. The first pair of nitro cars are set to light off as the last note of the National Anthem crackles through the PA. Brad Thompson holds the number one Top Fuel qualifying spot with a 5.74 second at 255.89 mile per hour blast. Check the gallery for some of yesterday's racing action today.
