Mar. 8, 2008; Bakersfield, CA, USA; Nostalgia top fuel dragster driver Mike McLennan suffers a massive fire during qualifying for the 50th annual March Meet at the Auto Club Famoso Raceway.  McLennan was engulfed in a giant fireball as the engine exploded and raw fuel fed the fire. "It was definitely interesting," said McLennan, 47. "It went from what felt like a perfect run to orange and red. It didn't give any warning, it just went."  Mandatory Credit: Mark J. Rebilas
