Mac's Quick-Release Fire Extinguisher

Why bother having a fire extinguisher if you can't get to it in time to make a difference? Whether you're strapped in a race car or cruising in your RV or boat, a portable fire extinguisher doesn't work if you can't use it quickly and safely in an emergency. Now Mac's Custom Tie-Downs has a solution: the new Quick-Release Fire Extinguisher Bracket combines Mac's trademark rugged construction with the convenience of a quick-release tab and the ability to accommodate most standard hand-held extinguishers.

Like all Mac's products, the Quick Release Extinguisher Bracket is made in the USA, featuring CNC machined billet aluminum construction and stainless steel hardware. The bracket is available with tubular or panel mounts for use on roll bars, cages, floor pans or motorhome interiors within easy reach. The aircraft-style ball detent pin maintains a snug fit for maximum security but can be removed in a hurry with one hand. In case of emergency, simply pull the pin and you're ready to put out a fire.

Mac's recommends making the most of your extinguisher by keeping it within reach of the driver. The tube mount is sized for 1.25", 1.5", 1.75" and 2" tubing, with more sizes coming soon, and can fit wherever you need fire protection. Mac's tubular and panel-mount brackets are strong, light and attractive. Like all Mac's products, the Quick-Release Fire Extinguisher Mount is designed and manufactured in the U.S.A. from the highest quality domestic materials.


A long anticipated new book will be released towards the end of this year. It’s about one of the most famous and instrumental families in the history of straight line racing, the Chrisman family. The book is The Chrisman Legacy – Always Faster.

The book is written by Tom Madigan, author of Tony Nancy – The Story of a Loner, Edelbrock – Made in U.S.A., Fuel & Guts – The Birth of Top Fuel Drag Racing and Snake vs. Mongoose – How a Rivalry changed Drag Racing Forever. Tom clearly knows the subject after a lifetime spent in the industry and captures the full story on the Chrisman family. Tom won the coveted Motor Press Guild Dean Batchelor award for Edelbrock – Made in U.S.A.

The Chrisman Legacy is the first book to be published by the ejje publishing group, which was created to give voice to significant racing history that might not be published due to a lack of interest by the mass-market publishers. This is the first of many books that will record significant racing history before it is lost. ejje publishing group is owned by Ed Justice, Jr., President & CEO of Justice Brothers, Inc. and Host of ROAD & TRACK SPEED radio, who’s own family has a long and colorful history in motorsports.

Information on the book and how to order is available at www.thechrismanlegacy.com.
